Lealandra is a witch on the verge of what's called the ascension, which is a time when the magic within her reaches its most powerful. This ascension is not an easy undertaking and most witches don't survive because they become overwelmed with their magic's potency to the point that they succumb and are killed by their own magic. Of course our heroine also has the odds stacked against her because her counter-balance, the one who is suppose to take some of the magic away from her during her ascension so she can survive is murdered leaving Lealandra in an even worst situation. Not to mention that Lealandra was the intended target to get killed.
So with this ascension coming at her with no counter-balance and someone trying to kill her, Lealandra seeks her ex- half demon/half human lover Taig for help. Lealandra walked out on Taig 6 years ago and Taig isn't sure what he feels for her now that she has come back into his life. He also has some past issues to work out and isn't sure Lealandra will accept him for his true self. However, Lealandra is there for him whenever he is ready to let her in. The one thing however that Taig is sure of is he needs to protect her and help her make it through her ascension but at what cost?
As usual Felicity delivers a action packed..uber sexy story. I loved this reunion between the two characters as well as a glimpsed into his past that sets up for the next book.
