What an awesome start to a series! Alexander has spun an enticing fantasy world, and readers will be quickly drawn into the story. It’s mysterious, enchanting and magically unique. The characters are the superstars throughout the action-packed plot, and each of their tales will leave you with enough questions to anticipate the second installment. And, if the paranormal genre doesn’t intrigue you, pick this one up for the sex scenes alone, which are so hot that they have the potential to make the pages spontaneously combust. Though the plot does become slightly confusing at times, it doesn’t ruin the total experience.

A trip to London with her best friend, Greg, has Aziza Jane Stewart questioning the curse bestowed upon her, which will eventually lead to her demise. It doesn't take long before strange things start to occur, however, and Aziza thinks she's hallucinating when she sees, hears and feels bizarre stuff. Some strangers believe she could be trouble as the power within her begins to stir. Dark secrets about her family begin to surface, and her insatiable hunger for sex is brought to light as she encounters the Jinn, Enforcers and magical beings she never knew existed. As Aziza tries to come to terms with the unthinkable and avoid danger, the fire fights to survive. (SAMHAIN, Sep., 230 pp., $5.50)
