Cremer has done it again! A bit different from Nightshade, this is a book for historical and paranormal romance lovers alike. Here, the author gives you an up close and personal look at some of the characters you’ve been dying to know more about. A great new book that will leave you breathless.

Six hundred years before Shay and Calla’s story, there were Keepers, witches and warlocks who used their power for evil. Ember, born with power, wants more than to stand around in pretty dresses and be married off to the highest bidder. She wants to fight, and she gets her chance when she is taken to the Conatus. She will finally be able to learn about magic. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that her mentor, Barrow, is not bad-looking. But when they find out that someone in Conatus is using dark magic, they must choose sides: Should they stay, or go out into the unknown? (PHILOMEL, Aug., 464 pp., $18.99, HC, ISBN: 9780399256134, 14 & Up)
