This is a mesmerizing paranormal romance set in a fascinating world of vampires and witches.  Celina – a witchling of immense power – must find her place in her new world of vampires.  Struggling with his own demons, Javed is building a new nest – the first one in centuries.  An ancient evil stirs, a prophecy comes to light and now Celina is in danger. Can their love possibly overcome every obstacle?

This fast paced plot keeps readers on the edge with lots of action, suspense, drama and romance.  The author captures the imagination with well written and orchestrated scenes and battles. The vivid imagery and details ensures that the reader gets caught up in the story from the very beginning and the characters are strong, compelling and easily related to. Spine tingling anticipation builds throughout the story as Javed and Celina try to figure out the prophecy before it’s too late and the danger escalates as the ancient evil grows stronger.

The attraction between Javed and Celina explodes from the pages with radiant intensity and the sex scenes are hot, steamy and sizzling with passion.  The relationship needs some work however, as Celina insecurity which comes from always having been alone keeps rearing up whenever she even thinks about being happy and of course she just learned that she’s with and must learn to use her powers.  Javed has to deal with a building the new nest, keeping his people safe and even his attraction to Celina causes a few problems in the nest.  The readers can certainly empathize and understand their plights which draw the reader deeper into the story.

I think the story would have better if it had been a little longer, but overall I really enjoyed the story and got totally caught up in it. I haven’t read the first one yet and while I had no problem catching on to what was going on, I really think I should have read it in order to get the full picture. But rest assured I will have read before the third one comes out as I can’t wait to see what happens next.
