Synopsis:
Zoë Merrick lived an ordinary life until late one night, she was brutally attacked and left for dead.

Zoë didn’t just survive that night – she underwent a physical transformation and acquired unexplainable abilities. Severed from her old life, her frustration grows as she tries to comprehend what’s happening to her with the help of a stranger named Adam.

Serendipity leads her to Justus De Gradi. He’s handsome, arrogant, and not entirely human. Through Justus, Zoë learns that she is not only a Mage, but she is vulnerable until she learns how to control her power. They are not magicians, but harness and manipulate energy. The only way she will understand her power is by putting her trust in a stranger and accepting the protection that he offers.

When her immortal freedom is threatened by the one man who has a right to claim her, Zoë learns the price of freedom…and the value of loyalty.

This particular book kicks off an ongoing series, so if you’re looking for a new world to become invested in, this could be it.  I started out really liking it, but as I read it it started to feel like 3 books in one, so it lost me a bit.  There were a lot of drastic changes and too many characters that I didn’t connect with as well as I would have liked. The magic was pretty cool, there’s a good dose of humor, and if you like potential love triangles or polygons, you’ll get that here.  I just found myself wanting more action at times.  There’s a lot of human interaction which becomes boring in an Urban Fantasy/Paranormal novel.  I think the next books will be better, though I’m not in a rush to get to them.
