Delaney Hagen’s power to control lightning is unique, even among witches. That uniqueness has caused her to run and hide from her kind – and the other supernatural beings in the world. Finally, after years of running, she feels safe enough to settle down. But her life’s calm is completely destroyed when her best friend is murdered. Delaney teams up with the mysterious and sexy Reid Jamison to figure out just what is going down in her world. Delaney will have to make a choice between her life and love. Will she be the product of a prophecy or will her fate be changed?Reid Jamison knew this case wouldn’t be easy. But, with the money the Coven was throwing at him, how could he say no? When he met Delaney Hagen, his whole world began to unravel. Faced with a prophecy, murders, love and betrayal, will Reid be able to hang on to this new world? Or will it slip away?
This book blew me away, I was impressed with the quality of the writing, and the really well thought out and detailed world building that we experience throughout the book. I’m a big fan of fantasy books, and this one has edges of urban fantasy, and it was perfect. The author took her time letting us get to know the characters, giving us a few good twists, and really let us have it at the end with that killer cliffhanger!
I love Delaney, she’s no pushover, she’s got attitude in spades, and life just can’t seem to give her a break. She goes through a lot in this book, but she handles it well, and it really allows you to see the character development come into play and her relationship with Reid that werewolf starts to play into it more and more. They make an interesting couple, and I love that it’s not one of those “insta-love” situations despite how hot the guy is! ;)
Coming out of the gate for a first book, this author blew me away. It was well edited, it had awesome pacing and the characters were strong, developed and really able to connect with the reader on a deeper level. This book had an interesting concept, I love unlicensed witches, and the whole thought behind why you have to register and the possible abuse of power, and I also really liked that the Coven got involved in supplying Reid, and it’s such a conflict for Delaney!
Great writing, steamy sexy scenes, you wouldn’t think this was a first book by an author! It really blew me away and I hope I get to read the second one! :)
