Vampire-witch hybrid Tansy Mariotti has exactly one goal: to stop her mother’s Vegas wedding.

It’s not because she hates weddings. It’s not because the groom is her boyfriend’s dad (although yuck). It’s not even because Vegas weddings are cliché as hell. It’s because her mom is an evil incarnate vamp known as The Executioner. Nothing good can come of someone marrying a person named The Executioner. Nothing.

With the help of her werewolf boyfriend, her bestie, her granny’s no-crave-blood tonic, and her favorite stake—a drumstick—Tansy is Vegas-bound and ready to raise hell, all while hoping her witch side can keep her fangs at bay. Only suddenly, her witch side is fading…fast.

Tansy's running out of time to stop her mom and save herself—before what happens in Vegas stakes in Vegas.

I had fun with this book! I thought that it wrapped up the series really well and had all of the action, drama, and romance that I have come to expect in the series. It was so easy to slip back into Tansy’s world and watch her take on those who wish her harm with the help of her friends, and family. I found this book incredibly entertaining and had a hard time putting it down once I started reading.

Tansy and her friends have their work cut out for them in this book. Vaughn’s father is in the clutches of Tansy’s evil mother, also known as The Executioner, and they need to find them before they get the chance to get married in Vegas. It was great to see Tansy work with her friends to try to save the day. Most of the characters had some kind of special ability so it was always exciting to see them in action. I really appreciated watching Tansy and Vaughn grow closer over the course of the series and thought that they seemed really solid together in this installment. I love that this book took a few twists and turns that I did not see coming which made for a very entertaining read.

I would recommend this book to others. I thought that this was a great conclusion to the trilogy and I have enjoyed each book. I love the blend of witches, vampires, and werewolves in these stories and appreciate the fact this is a lighter read. I wouldn’t hesitate to read more of this author’s work in the future.

I received a digital review copy of this book from Entangled Teen.
