At 21, all she wants is to find a place for herself, but earning a living as a private investigator in the shadow of her family’s reputation isn’t easy. When she is pulled into a paranormal investigation, and tempted by a powerful and handsome sorcerer, she will have to decide where she truly belongs.

- MY REVIEW:
- I have to say I’m sorry to see the series end. I got really attached to Cassie and Evans love story, magical fights, magical love spell kisses and all the family feuding.
- when I started reading this book I didn’t think at 1st it was as good as the rest of the series but as I read along, it became clear that Christine was not only creating a new story but also answering all those questions we had from previous books. I’m very happy with the ending . I’m also happy that she left it open if she ever wants to return to the series. Not open in a cliffhanger way but open to the fact that the Scot family can grow and Cassie’s and Evan (Spoiler Alert) are having a magical baby. I’d think with all he magic they have between the 2 of them this baby will be very powerful. But who knows of we will ever find out. I’d like to think so.
- I’m also glad Cassie finally came to the conclusion she was stronger then she ever thought and she had magic in her she just had to tap in, maybe not what she wanted , which in the end was what she did want, but she got it all Evan, the magic she so craved, just as a Dreamer, or Seer, not a full powerful witch like her family. But Evan did step up finally willing to give Cassie back her magic knowing that he would feel like he lost a part of himself but was so in love with Cassie he was willing to do the right thing.
- It was sad to see Cassie’s father end up dead and her mother in such turmoil. But with the Blackwood’s and the Scots fighting a magical war someone was bound to get hurt. Even in the end it wasn’t a Blackwood that killed him. And we finally got closure to why the Blackwood’s and Scots were fighting in the 1st place. I don’t want to give too much up so go read the book. you’ll love it. I know I did. All 4 Books!
- I think Christine did a great job in closing the series.
I do recommend you read the series from book #1 if you are new to the series or you will be completely lost.
It’s a fantastic series and it was nice to see Christine grow into her writing as Cassie grew into herself.
I was given this book for a honest review. its a 5 Star all the Way!
