I was privileged to be chosen as a recipient of this book in a drawing here on Goodreads. Lauren Dane is a favorite author of mine and I was very happy and excited to get this book. This is the second in a new series which is loosely tied to her Cascadia Wolves and de La Vega Cats series. It begins two months after the ending of book one in the series.
Lark Jaansen comes to Clan Owen from related Clan Gennessee to train Clan Owen members in different fighting and defense to aid them in the war with the mages and turned witches who are kidnapping witches and stealing their power by draining and killing them.
She meets Simon Leviathan, Dominic's friend and business partner from the first book and they become friends and more as they discover there is an unseen force called the Magister behind the hugely increased kidnappings, disappearances and murders of not only witches but all Other: Fae, Shifters, and Vampires.
It's a race against the clock to find a way to defeat the Magister.
This was an excellent read, full of action, emotion and some humor mixed in. Intense and full on all the way through. I highly recommend it and can't wait for book three.
