Summary of the Book:

Alayna Blackwell is doomed. A deadly curse will put her in an early grave, if a rogue vampire or shifter doesn’t punch her ticket first. Until then, she’s determined to use her elemental magic to keep her city safe and the supernatural hidden from the everyday world. On the trail of a powerful serial killer taking out mortal and magical alike, the stakes have never been higher for her team of elite magical creatures.

The last thing she needs is a gorgeous FBI agent stumbling into her investigation.

When his best friend is brutally murdered, Special Agent Alex Martinez vows to find the killer. His hunt for vengeance pulls him into a supernatural world he never imagined, exposing abilities he never knew he had. To survive in this new world, he needs to confront the scars of his past, before they cost him everything he’s worked so hard to rebuild.

When Alex and Alayna are forced to team up, the alchemical reaction is instant. Sparks fly and unexpected feelings develop, but deadly secrets threaten to tear them apart. When love wars with duty, can either survive the dark forces threatening their city? 

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I love the characters in this book for they have a depth that made me feel like I was going on this journey with them. Alex is FBI that is looking into the brutal murder of his friend. That is when he learns of a world that exists right along side the everyday world he knows. That is when he meets Alayna who is a mage that can control all four elements. She has never gotten serious with anyone for she knows that she will die young do to a curse or the creatures that she protects her city from. So when Alex comes into her life she is a little reluctant to let him into her life, but that changes when they are forced to work together. I can wait get more stories from this author.

My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
