Kenric is one of five Shadow Guardians that protect the human world from the supernatural world.

Sybil is a witch that has never been allowed to advance beyond apprentice witch. Checking out an estate sale Sybil stumbles across what she thinks is a grimoire that might be able to help her with her magic. And after she cuts her finger on it she decides she should buy it since she has bled on it. When she gets it home things start going very wrong very fast. The book takes on a life of its own and she is not sure how to stop it. Just as she thinks she is done for a giant wolf breaks down her apartment door. Now it is looking like things just went from bad to worse.

Kenric, a wolf shape shifter, was betrayed by witches in the past so he has no use for them nor does he trust them. This time he doesn’t have a choice but to help Sybil out since she called on the goddess, Inanna for help and the goddess has chosen to grant it. Now Kenric is going to have to deal with a witch and protect her from the grimoire that is more than just a book. By reading the grimoire Sybil accidentally opens a demon gate and will have to learn how to close it fast.

What Sybil doesn’t know is that her coven has been waiting for this day and they have no intention of closing the gate since it will give them the power that they crave. They have plans that they have been waiting for a very long time to put into motion and now that Sybil has accidentally set things into motion, the coven is determined to make sure that the end result they envision is going to happen and nothing is going to stop them, least of all Sybil. But Sybil has learned a few things from the guardians that just might be able to stop her coven once and for all.

This is a very scorching hot story that is very hard to put down. With all the twist and turns this one takes you never know what is going to happen and you are never disappointed with where this story goes too next. It is fun to see Sybil learn how to use the power she has acquired and as she finds her way in a world she never dreamed was real. The story line is very fast paced which makes the reading very easy. You hate to get to the end even though you hate to put the book down so you get to the end faster.

I give this one 5 red roses
