Kit Colbana is recovering from being kidnapped at Wolf Haven, but she knows that no matter what it appears on the outside, inside she is broken. As a thief, assassin and PI, Kit has always had her blades at her beck and call – now that voice is silenced. Kit is also missing the one person that she thought she could depend on no matter what – Damon, the alpha wolf who barged into her heart.
When Kit is forced to face more of her life before the kidnapping, she finds that many people are trying to help her recover the old Kit. Damon most especially. Kit soon learns that Damon had not step away from her like she was told, but while the passion between them is as hot as it always was Kit isn’t sure she can step back into that relationship until she can find her new balance. Damon has more than shown her that he wants her back – any time and any place.
Kit ends up taking a new PI job to locate something that has been supposedly stolen and return it to its owner. However, there is something slightly off with the owner that hires her. When Kit discovers the real identity of her client, it only leads to more questions – like why can’t this powerful person locate and retrieve the item herself. As Kit seeks out the truth of the item, she begins to have doubts on if her client should really have the item back or not. The job turns deadly just when Kit learns the location of the item and has to make a decision on what to do about it. Friends are lost and abilities are found when the final battle happens. Kit is both saddened and empowered by the outcome of this battle. She might not be like who she was but just maybe she is on the road to finding her new normal and finding her way back into Damon’s arms.
A feisty woman fights to get her life back and to regain the loving relationship she was just beginning to depend on when it was torn away in Broken Blade. Kit feels like she has fallen below bottom as she digs her way back to the life she had and loved. Damon, her alpha wolf lover, has proven that he not only never walked away from her but will fight anyone and anything to have her back. Watching as Kit struggled to face the new truth about her abilities and all the pain which has come forward and then fight to get back everything that she could, had me hoping for her as each page was turned. I loved how she not only gained her spunk and feistiness back but also proved that she could still do her job with the same efficiency. I also had to give Damon major kudos when it became clear that he not only searched for Kit when she was gone but would do anything to get her back. I loved how he also proved just how well he really did know Kit. When the book ended, I could tell that Kit was back on the road to regaining what she had lost. Now I only hope that she will find a way to regain the song that has been taken from her along with her passion for Damon. Broken Blade begins bittersweet but turns into an action pack and fast paced journey as Kit proves she might be broken but she certainly isn’t down and out.
