Queen of Nowhere (Hidden Empire #5) by Jaine Fenn
When paranoia is a way of life, trust doesn't come easily.
The Sidhe look like us. They live amongst us. What they lack in numbers they make up with their fearsome mental abilities and the considerable physical resources at their disposal. And their biggest advantage? No one believes they exist.
Almost no one.
Bez, the best hacker in human-space, is fighting a secret war against them. Always one step ahead, never lingering in one place, she's determined to bring them down. But she can't expose the Hidden Empire alone and when the only ally she trusted fails her she must accept help from an unexpected quarter.
Just one misstep, one incorrect assumption, and her Sidhe trap - her life's work - could end in vicious disaster. Worse, if Bez fails then humanity may never have another chance to win free of the manipulative and deadly Sidhe . . .

Things change when wolves capture Lou, forcing Hedi to
steal to free her – for if she can offer up a fae amulet like her own
they may trade. But it belongs to a rogue werewolf named Robson
Trowbridge, who betrayed Hedi on the night of her greatest need. Over
forty-eight hours, Hedi will face the weres of Creemore, discover the
extent of her fae powers and possibly break her own heart in the
