The war is going badly and events may become even more dire in this new chapter in McCray's scintillating Magic series. Blistering sex and riveting battles are plentiful as this series continues building toward its climax.
D'Anu witch Rhiannon Castle has always kept a dark secret hidden regarding the shadows that reside within her -- she fears the shadows are what enabled her to see into the mind of the now-released evil goddess Ceithlenn. Ceithlenn is eating human souls to gain enough strength to release her mate, the god Balor, so they can destroy the world.
D'Danann warrior Keir is bowled
over by Rhiannon upon their first meeting, and pursues her. What neither knows is the truth about their parentage, and this knowledge may be critical in the upcoming war, especially if Ceithlenn
is successful. (St. Martin's, Sep., 384 pp., $6.99)
