But there’s a stranger lurking much closer to Layla’s new home, and he’s closing in quicker than anyone knows. Leaving a trail of tragedy in their wakes, both wizards crave what Layla has, and they’ll stop at nothing to get it.


I received this book from B.C for giving her the name of one of her characters. I was chosen from an online contest her facebook fan page and was absolutely thrilled when she chose my choice of Selena. And when I first read the book I actually laughed and thought she’s my character, I then immediately fell in love with Alana so much so that she was MY little girl, just like her mother is my character. Now this all aside, this book is AMAZING! Burgess has outdone herself with this book and I rank her up there with the likes of J.K. Rowling, Stephanie Meyer, and Michael Scott. I can easily picture her books on film.

In this story it picks up where we left off in Descension, Layla found her family, and has discovered she is a witch. She also has met Quin, who I have to say I adore! He is so loving and attentive and oh gosh just everything a woman would want in a man. I can honestly admit I am addicted to Quin.
Gah, I just want to tell you parts of the book I loved but I hate spoilers.  I will say that the plot in this book continued with the base story of Agro searching for Layla. I HATE AGRO! But it’s not just Agro that I hated, I hate his right hand man Farriss and ooooooo I do so love what happens there. *rubs hands together evilly*

B.C. Burgess has created characters that are not only loving, but so human that you completely forget your reading a book. You are LIVING their life.  I adore Layla, love Quin and all the family, Finley I am reserving judgement on, I can’t decide if he is bad to the bone or just misunderstood, and we know how I feel about Agro. As for my character Selena and her beautiful loveable cuddly little Alana all I can say is I want more.

I can assure you that this book is as good as the first if not better.  I loved how much time we get to spend learning about the magic that she is born with. I also love what comes out about Finley and no I will not spill the beans here but trust me its good! I truly do believe that B.C. Burgess has created a series which will stand the test of time. And will most likely wind up being a fabulous movie.

Well worth the read and I plan on purchasing the Hardcover series when she has it completed so that tells you something about how much I loved the first two books in this wonderful series.
