Review: Grave Secret by Sierra Dean

Grave Secret (Secret McQueen #5) by Sierra Dean
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Sometimes a secret goes to the grave. Sometimes Secret puts you there.

It’s been a hell of a year for Secret McQueen, and the last thing in the world she wants is to get caught up in werewolf drama. But when her former fiancĂ© Lucas Rain shows up asking for her help, she knows there’s no easy way out.

After making it known she wants nothing to do with him, Secret agrees to help find Lucas’s wayward sister Kellen. After all, how much trouble could one socialite get into in the city that never sleeps?

Unless that socialite has been spirited away by fairies.

Trying to track down a missing girl in an alternate reality is just the start of Secret’s problems, though. Someone appears to be killing teenagers, and the MO looks eerily similar to something for which the half-fairy oracle, Calliope, might be responsible. Throw in a rogue wolf pack claiming allegiance to Secret’s mother, Mercy, and she’ll have miles to go before she rests.

Warning: This book contains a promise fulfilled, sex that’s out of this world, and more heartache than one hybrid assassin can handle.
My Thoughts: This series is one that acts like a punch to the gut more often than not. This time, I had to quietly put my Kindle down and let myself unwind at one point because OMG! ALL THIS STUFF WAS HAPPENING AND IT WAS KILLING ME! *breathes deeply*

Here's the thing, I don't always agree with the choices Secret makes but I can appreciate why she makes them. She's a complicated lady with a complicated life. Lucas messed up her relationship with Desmond (who I ADORE) and yet she still has responsibilities to the pack. Desmond was deeply hurt by what Secret did with Lucas and he's had to take some time to regroup. Holden is... well, he's Holden. As much as Secret might wish otherwise, all their lives are tangled up and sometimes there are no easy answers to the way she feels.

Seriously, so much stuff happens here. Secret gets a chance to live out her deepest dream but it comes at a wickedly high price. She's being hunted by someone looking to steal her power. She's rebuilding herself while trying to balance the demands of the vampire council, the werewolves, and her business partner. It's fantastic and a little heartbreaking and STUFF HAPPENS.

Holy smokes. Book 6 might just kill me.
