Publisher’s DescriptionEvery day, I learn more about magick. The more I learn, the more my power grows. Sometimes, my own strength frightens me.

I know I’m alone, though. Cal is with me, my soul mate, my partner, my love.

Now I feel a shadow over us. When I cast out my senses, I pick up danger. But is it real, or is it all in my mind?

Possible spoilers beyond this point.

Gorgeous magick! I cannot stress enough how much I love that the author blends true Wiccan ideas and ethics into a fantasy series so well. The rituals and theories are true, but Morgan’s powers not (some of them at least) and yet, it seems realistic. I love the idea of seven different clans and a made-up history that seems legit enough.

badge4v4Since I’ve already read this series before, I find myself mentally screaming at Morgan, hoping she will open her eyes and just see things for what they are. I wish she’d do a clarity spell, especially since the author drops little hints here and there that help readers know there’s a lot more going on than she realizes. Morgan’s world is about to flip again and there will be choices she’ll be forced choice make that she won’t like. I love the semi-cliffhanger ending and the intensity of the last couple pages.

There’s so many spells here and the introduction to new characters promises more. I’m really enjoying the cliffhangers left at each chapter and the end of the book itself. It’s building up to a great battle and you’ll start to notice who’s on each side.
