Vampires are real. So are faeries and angels.
They all want Marion dead.
Surrounded by enemies, Marion turns to Lucas Flynn: a mysterious doctor who seems to know more than he’s letting on. He’s as good with a gun as he is with a scalpel. He fights like a demon but claims that he’s human. And he’s hellbent on protecting Marion.
Lucas claims that Marion is a mage: half-witch, half-angel with terrifying powers that could crack the world. But Marion can’t remember how to cast magic any more than she can remember where she comes from.
Marion must find her identity and her power…before the forgotten sins of her past catch up with her.
Our heroine, Marion, wakes up in hospital with her memories gone. All she knows is she has to find Seth Wilder; but who he is or why he is important is totally beyond her. The doctor treating her is a bit of an anomaly and right from the start the reader knows there's a lot more to Dr. Lucas Flynn then he's letting on. Marion has no idea why assassins are targeting her but Lucas seems to have an inkling. Getting out of the hospital alive is just the tip of the iceberg though as it seems Marion has so much power at her fingertips if only she could remember how to use it!
I'm not sure I liked Marion as she's full of herself and more than a little arrogant, which didn't endear her to me. Yet as the story progresses, we see depths to her and she truly does have a good heart. The synopsis gives away Marion's species so I'm not giving too much away when I state her attitude kind of makes sense given what she is, but she does seem very young and far too trusting at times. Me? I'd be running for the hills!
Lucas may seem familiar to some readers and he certainly carries a very strong connection with Marion. I liked that he is a man capable of holding his own but at times wanted to shake him as he lets Marion wrap him around her little finger! The girl is obviously in danger and yet he follows her into situations that are clearly not safe. Oh boy, what is it with men and a pretty girl batting her eyes at them?
It's a complicated world Ms Reine has created, but all the better for it I thought. I really enjoyed seeing these characters come to life and the ending just sets the scene for much more mayhem to ensue. We get some answers here but not all, so I'm really onboard to read the next book when it's available.
I was gifted a copy of this through NetGalley for an honest review.
