Blurb:

She has come to right the balance. He seeks to destroy it…
Somewhere on another astral plane, a lover’s quarrel between gods, millennia old, has come full circle.
Ea, a dark and ancient god and the father of the first Werewolf, is hell bent on destroying his supernatural offspring. And he’ll use anyone and everyone he can to get it done even from beyond the physical. For now, his vessel is the evil and mysterious Indra, a witch whose powers only slightly outweigh her penchant for hitting on the help.
Too bad Alex is cured and once again immune to Indra’s invasive magic. A healing from which Sam almost didn’t come back.
Hina, the wolf mother goddess, has sworn to protect her cubs. And she lives on… inside Samantha Knight. Sort of like that still, small voice of reason. Except MAGICAL and pissed at her ex. If Sam can’t find a way to heal the wolves and stop Indra from harming them, the goddess will take matters into her own hands. But an appearance like that promises destruction, chaos, and worst of all: no more Sam.
Indra isn’t holding back.
Sam is on the run.
Alex is in a cage.
The clock is ticking.
Book 4 in the Heart Lines Series by Heather Hildenbrand

Review:

Shattered! If I had to choose one word to describe how I feel at the end if this book, it would be shattered. If you have not started this series yet, you're crazy. Imbalance is the fourth book in the Heartlines series. This book had me captivated from the beginning to the very end.

Another piece of the puzzle has been revealed to both the characters and readers. While there was plenty of action, there was also quite a bit of quiet time for our characters to reflect as well. This book shocked me. I mean I tried to be prepared for the conclusion, but actually reading it left me speechless and heartbroken.

Sam is continually growing throughout this series. She's made some major progress along the way. She did changed a bit in this book, but I think this book was more about Alex and his development. I feel like he had a major turning point that helped decide his fate. Alex is a wonderfully written character and I'm glad he's finally gotten some much needed attention.

When Sam and Alex are together, their chemistry is palpable. Even the other characters in the book can feel how they feel for each other. There was definitely some wonderful scenes between these two in the book. I love them together.

The writing style of this whole series has been amazing. I love the dual point of view story telling the author uses. It allows us to learn more information. This book has a pretty steady pace. The author sure doesn't hold any punches back. She knows where this story is going and she's not afraid to make decisions that are hard. This makes her a wonderful author and story teller.

Overall, I loved this book. It put me through an emotional wringer, but left me wanting way more. I just have to know what happens next! I have been recommending this book tii others and cannot wait for the next installment.
