About this ebook

Part fae, part human, all magic. . .

Now it’s time to choose a side.

When the Unified Church in Rome is destroyed by rogue sorcerers, tensions explode. Alex Blackwood will do whatever it takes to prevent a war between the humans, fae, and Earth paranaturals--even turn herself over to the PTF. But when a man she thought long dead walks back into her life at the head of a sorcerer army, surrender is no longer an option.

With all the world watching, and half hoping she fails, Alex and her friends scramble to find a peace that won’t cost them everything.

Three and a half stars. I don't know why this didn't grab me more TBH. Things have reached a climax. Rogue sorcerers have destroyed the Unified Church in Rome and Alex is desperate to prevent a war, whether between the Fae and humans or humans and paranaturals she doesn't care. There are battles and more paranormals than you can shake a stick at, Alex has to decide what/who she really is, and pick a side, can she bring everyone together and win before it descends into out-and-out war? As she finally understands the truth of her halfer status she begins to understand her magic and how to use it properly. Sounds great right? Demons, fae, vampires, sorcerers, shifters, witches and more! Yet this felt more like the build up to a finale than the epic battle that it was - maybe because it ended in 'to be continued'? So, I enjoyed it and the battle scenes were crazy scary but I didn't love it. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
