Isabella "Izzy" De Marco is a New Yorker who discovers she is the long-lost heiress of a legacy of magic handed down to the women in her family by Joan of Arc. She is part of the House of the Flames and hasn't known about it for 26 years. Now, her nightmares are getting worse, and she notices a strange man in black watching her house. Izzy also meets the dark and mysterious Jean-Marc de Devereaux. He tells her magic exists, as well as other darker things. She finds herself thrown into a world th ...more

Izzy DeMarco is a second generation cop who finds herself propelled from her mundane life into a fantastical world of magical families and their political intrigue. She's guided by Jean-Marc a mysterious man who seems to be more than he lets on. I can't say that I really like the characterization in this novel. It wasn’t bad or non-existent. It was simply okay. That is it resembles a script for a movie, which is not a good thing in this regard since quite a few parts are scripted without that se
I'm only a few pages into this book, so is very early to give a review. It is holding my attention!

I tried not to include spoilers... It was hard not to and still give a review.

Later: Well, I've finished this one and have very mixed feelings about it! It kept my attention but the actions and responses of the heroine didn't mesh with the actions and responses a woman would have if she has grown up as a cop's daughter and wants to be a cop, too. I don't think she would fall apart so much if she ha
Although I normally prefer historical romance, etc., I love stories with romance and magic. So I took a chance on this book (I had read a brief summary about it in another book I was reading). Overall, I liked the story and its characters, and the element of suspense mixed with some horror. The only drawback, for me, was that I thought the story started slow and I found it hard to get into to. However, the author definately makes up for it towards the middle and end. Despite this, I plan to read ...more
Okay, If I would have stopped reading it like I almost did at the beginning, I would have rated it a one. However, the story finally caught my attention and I was enjoying it. I started to understand what was going on and the book ends.

AGH! So I am not sure if this is part of a series or not, but I am not sure if I would try reading some more or not! It deals with other "worldly" things and was had for me to follow at first!
The story line was good and intriguing. But there were times where Isabelle spent so long in denial it annoyed me a bit. I hope that the next book will be better.

Wasn't easy to get into, I skimmed through a lot of the first half as it dragged on. Once the action started I finished it quickly.
Didn't care for the modern day setting or the writing style.
