For Raven Black, hunting criminals is second nature. So is denial. It’s not easy moving forward with one foot stuck in the past. But a new case offers her a much-needed distraction when Keystone accepts their toughest assignment yet—to track down an elusive criminal who’s selling children on the black market.
Their investigation leads them deep into the underbelly of the Breed world, a place both treacherous and enticing. With no room for mistakes, Raven makes a tough decision to lock the door to her past before it interferes with her job. The only trouble? Christian holds the key.
The stakes are high, and a shocking twist turns everything on its head. Will they catch this criminal before more lives are lost? Find out in the latest edge-of-your-seat installment of the Crossbreed series.

Deathtrap is the third installment in Dannika Dark’s Crossbreed series. I am currenlty addicted to this series and characters!
Deathtrap seamlessly continues the story of Raven Black and encompasses everything I adore about urban fantasy. Diverse characters with depth line the pages and I am itching to know more about each and every one of them. Dark continues the progress of slowly revealing backstories of several of the characters. This has caused a spontaneous addiction and I cannot seem to get enough.
Raven Black and Christian Poe have great chemistry, but the sexual tension and flirting is still side-barred to the overall story conflict. I love this aspect and enjoy the authors ability to maintain the push-and-pull of their growing friendship (which is certainly lined with more intense feelings). Deathtrap also had a few very emotional and heartfelt moments, with the additional bonus of great plot twists! Raven’s struggle to let go of her relationship with her father is heartfelt and genuine. It truly adds a lot to her character and allows the reader to really connect the dots to some of her inner struggles. She certainly didn’t have a fairy tale childhood, but it is one a lot of us could likely relate to and makes Raven a truly realistic character.
The team has struggles throughout. When they start to investigate children being sold on the breed black market, things take a personal turn. Emotions run high and the conflicts remain strong. Another threat is still lurking and I can’t wait to find out more..
Narration: Nicole Poole continues to narrate this series. She doesn’t falter and remains consistent with the voices and accents. Which is really saying something, because there continues to be a huge variety of accents and characters. Her changes in tone for different characters continues to impress me, especially with subtle quirks and pronunciations for different characters. All in all…brilliant narration.
