A WITCH WITH THE GIFT OF LIGHT
Calliope the Soother is a witch devoting her life to easing the pain and misery of others, drawing out the darkness and replacing it with light.

A HALF-BREED WITH THE CURSE OF DARKNESS

A powerful wizard by birthright, Krystoff Dubhar's tainted blood carries shadows destined to possess his mind and soul. Only with outlawed, dangerous blood magick can he hold the shadows at bay.

HIS SHADOWS WEAKEN HER

In the shadowed realm of Mistropa, Krystoff falls to overwhelming odds. Just as the Queen of Shadows is about to claim his power - and his life - Calliope hears the foreboding cry of the banshee, and the Soother becomes the wizard's savior. As Calliope heals her mysterious fanged enemy, her heart is sent into overdrive. Is her accelerated pulse prompted by fear or desire? Either way, Krystoff's shadowed presence proves dangerous. His sensual words ignite a fire long held dormant. His kiss reveals a forbidden passion.

HIS HUNGER MAY VERY WELL KILL HER

Seeking vengeance, the Queen's dark army turns the Soother's village into a battleground rife with death and destruction. Calliope fights to save her coven. Krystoff fights to save the Soother who has captured his heart. One bite changes everything. Can love survive the never-ending battle between light and dark?





My Thoughts

 Can she soothe his soul?

Calliope is a witch with the power to draw the darkness out of others and replacing it with light. She meets and saves Krystoff. Krystoff is a powerful wizard whose tainted blood carries shadows that will one day possess his mind and soul. Angry, the Queen of Shadows attempted to kill Krystoff and seek revenge against Calliope by attacking her village. Calliope attempts to save her coven and Krystoff attempts to save her. Will the love between these two survive the oncoming battle?

The world building in this story was imaginative and beautifully descriptive. I really enjoyed getting to see the magic of this world. There was also plenty of action as darkness attempted to take over the light. I was constantly kept on the edge of my seat in anticipation.

The romance in this story was wild and dangerously beautiful. I really liked the relationship between Calliope and Krystoff and had a great time seeing them fall in love.

Calliope is a selfless woman who does all she can to keep the shadows at bay. I really liked getting to know her and felt that she was a strong woman who could accomplish great feats if she put her mind to it.

Krystoff was darker than Calliope, but had a good side to him as well. He was a bit more mysterious as well and figuring him out was fun. I really liked him and felt that he made a great match for Calliope.

A spellbinding story that you won't want to put down!
