I had forgotten what had happened in this book and I ended up enjoying it. Darren is having to deal with the consequences of the end of book 5 and at the beginning is just happy to be alive. He is nursed back to health by the pack of wolves he meet on his way to vampire mountain and although he is grateful and part of him would love to stay and hide he knows he has a responsibility to go back and warn the rest of the clan about the betrayal he has learnt of. It isn’t easy though and he is the first to admit he wasn’t totally aware of the consequences. When Darren returns to the mountain there is a lot for everyone to deal with, not just his return but the accusations he is making. Plans are made to resolve the issue, with Darren’s help but it is only when it is too late he realises what he has done and that he doesn’t totally agree with the way vampire’s run things. After the tragedy of that he also has to meet his fate for failing his trials and running away. However he has earned the respect of the clan and they find a unique loophole to get him out of his punishment.
As I’ve already said I had kind of forgotten what happened in this book. I enjoyed finding out how Darren gets round his issues but I also found that his reaction was one I agreed with and allows you to connect with him as a human still. The end was my favourite bit though as the way he is pardoned was a surprise to me again.
