Suddenly, being bitten by a werewolf is the least of Joanne Walker’s problems.

Her personal life in turmoil, her job as a cop over, she’s been called to Ireland by the magic within her. And though Joanne’s skills have grown by leaps and bounds, Ireland’s magic is old and very powerful…

In fact, this is a case of unfinished business. Because the woman Joanne has come to Ireland to rescue is the woman who sacrificed everything for Joanne—the woman who died a year ago. Now, through a slip in time, she’s in thrall to a dark power and Joanne must battle darkness, time and the gods themselves to save her.

When I read the dedication in this book, I was rather worried that it was the last in the series.  And this is a series that I have fallen with since the first book which was set in Seattle.  RAVEN CALLS is set in Ireland but it has the same magic to the writing that holds sway over me.        
                    
What really sets this book apart from the rest of the series is the growth that Joanne does.  She has always fought herself and others when it comes to learning and accepting herself.  Now to keep Gary alive and to get back to the man she loves, she has to quit that bad habit. 

We also get to meet more of her family in Ireland and learn more of her mother.  We are also introduced to Irish mythology in a new light.  And it is quite an interesting light at that.

I do recommend this book to all readers of the paranormal.  It is possible to read it as a stand alone book however you will feel that you are missing a lot.   Because of that, I did reduce down my rating somewhat.  I do rate this book at a 3.8.

***I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  No monies have or will exchange hands.
