Definitely 1 1/2 stars!

The things that I like are basically the same as for the previous books in the gifted series. I definitely didn’t like the voodoo-laced, demonic worshipping aspect of this novel.

I must admit, this was probably my favorite of all the books in this series.

This is the story of Jean Marc who is a powerful mage. He loves Isabelle but he becomes possessed with a dark demon. He has to fight the demon so that he does not kill Isabelle.

I followed this series and had to look hard for it, but it was definetly worth it. It is a different take on paranormal and sucks you right in. Check them out you won't be sorry.
This was a great read. There were so many differant idea's going on that it just sparked with me and drew me completely into the story.
Harlequin Historical
Interesting read. I enjoyed the premise of the book and the writing style was pleasing.
I wish that she'd write more in this series; but it all came together well. Sort of.
