And better still it is OPEN INTERNATIONALLY!

Here is just a little taste from this magnificent author…

Quin smiled as he touched a thumb to Layla’s pout. ‘Can you hear me, beautiful?
Her lips parted as his voice resonated in her mind, like a gentle echo deep within her ears.
She gave a tiny nod, so he continued. ‘Does this make you more confident to jump?
She nodded again, and his smile widened as he caressed her lip. ‘As long as you’re open to my thoughts like you are now, you’ll hear me, but if for some reason you don’t level out in time, I’ll keep you safe. Okay?
“Okay,” she agreed, breaking eye contact to look at the water. “I guess we’re jumping.”
“Only if you want to.”
“I do. It’s just a little scary. But that’s the point, right? No fear, no thrill?” She hopped around, half afraid half excited.
“Hey,” Quin laughed, squeezing her hand.
“Hey back,” she returned, looking up at him.
He leaned in for a fast and intense kiss. Then he flashed deep dimples. “On three.”
“Oh god,” she breathed, gripping his hand tighter.
“One...”
Her chest rapidly rose and fell as her pulse spiked.
“Two...”
She gave a tiny squeak then sucked in air, holding it as she bent her knees.
“Three.”
They both jumped, stretching their arms out in front of them. Then they leaned headfirst into the dive.

My Review:
I received this book from B.C for giving her the name of one of her characters. I was chosen from an online contest from her facebook fan page and was absolutely thrilled when she chose my choice of Selena. 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.

And now on to the GIVEAWAY!!!!!
