She didn’t know the charming New England town was a hotbed of danger filled with vampires, demons, shifters and angelic hunters. It was only a night out with friends, but that night would be the turning point for Kat Montgomery and the new direction her life was taking would be both deadly and terrifying and the lone wolf at school would be the one who tries to save Kat as their strained relationship grows into one of trust and survival.

Something is happening in Mystic Harbor and it carries the stench of evil. Something is also happening to Kat and she is both clueless and terrified of what it is. Can she trust Reese Blackburn, a strange young man who actually has magical abilities? He would never win a congeniality contest, but there is something deeper that speaks to his sincerity.

Those Kat saw as friends are keeping secrets, including her ex-boyfriend, whose loss she never understood, until now…but is he actually evil or misguided? What of the clandestine group he is part of? As Kat and Reese fall further into the pits of hell in a world where she discovers her own awakening powers, will Kat find she is the biggest monster of all? Maybe Fate has its own plan for Kat that even the monsters cannot see.

Keep your eye on Victoria Evers, her foundation entry for The Marked Mage Chronicles Series, INSIDIOUSis a non-stop unveiling of brilliant characters, a tantalizing plot filled with more twists than a Twizzler all wrapped up into one riveting read! Ms. Evers builds a world where the hook is set within a few pages, then shifts gear into the “reeling us in” stage that never lets up! Great pacing, an atmosphere that shifts between light and dark, the known and the unknown, the mysterious and the downright terrifying, INSIDIOUS has heart, a healthy dose of magic and one heroine caught in the middle of an unfriendly game of tug-of-war. There is pure meat here, no added fat to be trimmed…and I thought my high school days were hellish…Read it, it’s hidden gem uncovered!
