I am Maia Delacroix and I hunt people and relics. My life does not lack excitement or danger. I have it in spades.
Then the Mageri surprised me with an orphan…yes, an orphan. I can’t even keep a house plant alive, let alone a kid. It turns out that I’m her only living relative, and even though we’ve never met, I’m her only hope. Great. Can I feed her after midnight? What does she eat? I have no idea what I’m doing.
They tell me this little witchling will need care for a few years until she comes of age. The bizarre fire leaking out of Elaina’s hands is a pretty good indicator that she is no witch.
Then the coven comes—they want her back. Necromancers show up, turning my vampire friends into enemies. If that isn’t bad enough, I have a demon problem now too.
Join me, and see if we can make it out alive!
This is an exciting new series that has a little bit of everything to satisfy any urban fantasy lover. The author did a great job at creating a world I want to immerse myself in.
I loved the idea of a perpetual 25-year-old ending up the guardian of a teenage girl that she’s never even met before. The author did a great job in creating the emotional dynamics that go with a situation like that. I also liked that possible romance was hinted at but the focus remained on Maia and Elaina.
Highly recommend this book to all lovers of urban fantasy.
