Book Four: Marked by Magic
With the rebellion now in full swing, shifter-mage hybrid Sunaya Baine has no time for distractions. She must find out the true identity of the Benefactor and pull the plug on the Resistance's funding before they succeed in their grand plans for genocide and destruction.
But the heat is upon Sunaya now, and it demands to be sated. And since the Resistance has marked her for death, she can no longer walk freely among the very people she is trying to save. Death, danger, and desire hem Sunaya in on all sides, and with her friends caught up in their own problems, she cannot truly count on anyone except herself.
Does Sunaya have what it takes to wrangle her unruly shifter instincts and embrace her heritage as a mage once and for all? Or will she succumb to the forces around her and finally lose her way?
Book Five: Betrayed by Magic
For most women, being newly engaged to the love of your life is a time of celebration. But Sunaya's happiness is overshadowed by loss. Her friends have not returned from their quest to bring back Noria, and though the Resistance has been beaten back, they are far from vanquished.
When the Minister sends Sunaya and Iannis to destroy an important Resistance stronghold, Sunaya is torn between the desire to help her friends and defend her country. But soon she finds that the two are not as unrelated as she imagined... and in order to accomplish both, she must put her trust in a man who has betrayed her.
Book Six: Deceived by Magic
If Sunaya and Iannis thought there would be time to rest after returning from their last mission, they are sorely mistaken. The Minister sends them to face off with yet more dangerous enemies - this time in a lawless port in remote Garai, where pirates and slavers thrive, and everyone is fair game.
To hide their undercover mission, Sunaya and Iannis travel to Garai as official guests to a state funeral. But Sunaya's luck runs out when she finds out her father is on the guest list and, worse, runs straight into him and his family. For now her deadly secret is safe. But once they discover her true identity, they may not be willing to suffer her alive....

Incoonsistent with earlier books - an improvement
The setting of these books is great, and the characters as put forth in these later books are good too.
There's a huge inconsistency in how one of the main protagonists in these books is portrayed from how he is written in the early books - it's an improvement, of sorts as he's much more likelable and if I hadn't read the series from the beginning I would have enjoyed these books a lot more.
The Chief Mage, is written like a completely different character from the abusive, controlling, and arrogant monster in the early books of the series. Unfortunately, I did read those books so find it hard to balance the relationship between the Chief Mage and his Apprentice in these books with the with the abusive relationship it started out as. His character may have changed completely (in a couple of months, book time, because that's believable) but she's been finding him attractive from the start, when he was abusing her, and regardless of how long it took him to change - he abused her and she's attracted to him, which just makes me shudder and leaves me with no liking or respect for either of the main protagonists in this series, and I'm afraid that ruins the enjoyment of books for me.
It's safe to say that if I hadn't already bought the boxed sets of these books I wouldn't have bothered beyond the point in the first book where I could see the relationship progressing, and being written as if it's a Good Thing, depite the abuse.
My advice - if you want to enjoy these books, start in book four with this set and skip books one, two, and three.

Best one yet
Thought the book was great. Wish she could have explored more of a relationship w/father once she found him. Like that this is a different kind of fantasy book & not like the traditional vampire books.

I love this set of books
The main character is a very strong but emotional person. I really appreciate the author not making her feeble and completely dependant on others to survive. can't wait to listen to book 7
