The lead male protagonist, Jaxton, and his DEFEND team breach the Asylum to extract his brother and Kiarra and save them from the tortures that they are enduring. This book is fast paced and does a good job of building a new paranormal world. There's enough action and dilemmas to keep the story flowing along with the quickly developing attraction between Kiarra and Jaxton. I enjoyed the fact that this was a unique take on the paranormal theme and it is a series that I will follow as Donovan continues to write. The character of Kiarra is pretty well summed up in this line from early in the book: "she was trying her hardest to be the woman she was inside her head". Amen, sister!
