When a book's description says:
"An action-packed drama full of East End gangs, witches, and a modern day Inquisition.
In a modern world-where witches are hunted down and burned at the stake-two live interact. Glory is from a family of witches, and is desperate to develop the 'Fae' and become a witch herself. Lucas is the son of the Chief Prosecutor for the Inquisition and his privileged life is very different from the witches he is being trained to prosecute. And then one day, both Glory and Lucas develop the Fae. In one fell stroke, their lives are inextricably bound together, whether they like it or not."

I say, "Sign me up!"

Seriously, witches and a modern day Inquisition. So awesome. I'm loving the trend of alternate realities in contemporary culture. (See also Every Other Day.)


*The book description on NetGalley is better than the one here.

Thanks. I had an advance copy, so it's very possible they changed the name in the final book.
