[Review] Allegiance by K.A. Tucker

About the Book:  
Evangeline finally got what she longed for—the cursed pendant off her neck and Caden in her arms—only it came at a steep price. An unknown poison now courses through her body, slowly morphing her into something no one but the Fates can foresee.She has her suspicions, though...and if she is right, it will spell certain ruin for her and Caden. But she won’t last long enough to realize that, if Viggo and Mortimer uncover the treasonous secrets she keeps from them– that Veronique, no longer entombed, is now in the torturous clutches of the witches and the People’s Sentinel, or that she is protecting a Sentinel within their very midst.
Always the naive human caught in the vampires’ web of deceit, Evangeline is now weaving her own dangerous web so she can keep her friend alive, rescue Veronique, and stop a seemingly inevitable war from erupting. But can her honor handle the depths of duplicity to which she must descend, in order to be in league with the vampires?
Dark and gripping, riddled with angst, Allegiance will have readers anxiously turning pages to find out if Evangeline can survive, or if she’ll spiral into disaster.

My Review:  Allegiance is the third installment in the Casual Enchantment series by K.A. Tucker.  Allegiance follows in the path of Anathema and Asylum.  It's a well-written, action-packed page turner.   We pick up with Evangeline and Caden finally together, free of the necklace.  Things of course, take a turn for the worst, spinning readers into a nail biting, edge of your seat story, ending with a cliff-hanger that leaves you anxious for the next book in the series.

Evie has really grown as a character in this book.  She's shows strength in this book that was just developing in the two previous books.  I also enjoyed reading from Sophie's point of view.  Caden is even more amazing than the previous books.  I really enjoyed the interactions between the characters.  I can't wait for the next book.

About the Author:  Born in small-town Ontario, Kathleen published her first book at the age of six with the help of her elementary school librarian and a box of crayons. She is a voracious reader and the farthest thing from a genre-snob, loving everything from High Fantasy to Chick Lit. Kathleen currently resides in a quaint small town outside of Toronto with her husband, two beautiful girls, and an exhausting brood of four-legged creatures.
