animosity and work together if they are to overcome the dark forces
intent on stopping them before they reach safety. For Callista is far
more powerful than she knows, and with her help and her love, David may

I dont normally read historicals, but since this series has a paranormal
aspect I decided to give it a shot. For me I thought it started out
slow, but I think that could be my adjusting to the time and setting
because once I was used to it the story really flew by.
characters were were developed and interesting and had their own
backstory that was useful to know for their development, but did not
slow down the pace of the story being told. Both the hero and heroine
are strong, capable characters that learn to not only work together but
to see that their differences arent quite so different after all.
book is the second in the series, and while you dont necessarily have
to read them in order, it does help since a lot of what is explained in
book 1 was not explained in this one. The world the characters are in,
is so well developed you can really picture it. It is incredibly well
done and envisioned and I cant imagine these characters being in any
I highly recommend this series to anyone looking
for a paranormal historical. I know I am really looking forward to book
3 and seeing what happens next.
