Sometimes I’d rather shield my eyes than see darkness in light.
It was my senior year at Hawthorne University when everything fell apart. I mean, all my witch friends got along fine—sort of. But I was nervous about my love life. I just had to get into Hawthorne’s graduate program, because my boyfriend was going to be a professor. I didn’t want to lose him. I didn’t want to lose anyone.
And things got weirder. A witch was threatened with sacrificial murder. Another witch spent all day murmuring to herself, in the center of a circle of candles, on a pentagram she painted in her dorm room. It all pointed to the wicked witch of the Abaddon coven. If I was right, it might just take a full-fledged witch showdown to stop her.
So? Bring it on. What did I have to lose? Just everyone I love. And maybe my soul.
A mystic healer. A renegade vampire. An ancient obsession.
Loti Dupree lost everything that ever mattered to her. Her sense of direction, her purpose, and the love of her life. She has no idea how to pick up the pieces without David . . . or that she's the last of an ancient lineage of healers thought to be extinct.
But 500-year-old vampire Wolf Arrighi does.
Wolf has been living outside the boundaries of his own kind for centuries, avoiding the vampire world with all its egotistical pleasures and exquisite pain. And for centuries, he's been seeking her, racked with a craving only she can satisfy.
But when their worlds finally collide, their passion ignites an entirely new and entirely dangerous elemental magic, attracting an ancient evil hell-bent on possessing Loti for his own selfish desires.
As one by one, the people she loves become casualties in the monster's dangerous games, Loti is forced to choose between saving them all or saving the one who saved her.
Lummis introduces readers to a dark and seductive world full of vampires, witches, and ancient healers. If you love Laurell K. Hamilton and the bite of True Blood, you will devour this series!
