The Blood have waited centuries for the coming of Witch, the living embodiment of magic. But Jaenelle Angelline, the young girl singled out by prophecy, is haunted by the cruel battles fought over her—for not all the Blood await her as their Savior. Some dismiss her as a myth. Some refuse to believe. And still others look forward to using her, making her a pawn in their shadowy devices.

Enough time has passed for Jaenelle’s physical wounds to heal, but her mind is fragile, barely able to protect her from the horrifying memories of her childhood. But nothing can keep her from her destiny—and the day of reckoning looms near. 

On that day, the dark Realms will know what it means to be ruled by Witch…

    " Daemon! OH Daemon! How could this happen? I don't care what anyone else says, Daemon is my favourite of the line. Yes, okay, his father Saetan is very sexy and his brother Lucivar is hot. Still, in this second story, I felt sorry for all the SaDiablo members. I did like reading about Jaenelle growing up. Her time with Lucivar brings a smile to my face. All these blood coming together for a time when Witch will make people pay, it's pretty heady. At times, I find this story to be young adult and then other times I find it to be sensually erotic. "

    " This book was a little better than the first. It wasn't quite as shockingly disturbing. I thought that the story jumped around a lot and it introduced a lot of new characters but failed to develop them very well. You really only get to know Lucivar in this book. I was confused often when the other characters were mentioned because there were a lot, but they were so seldom mentioned that you tended to forget who they were and where they came from! It kept me interested enough to continue reading the series. "

    " What you don't know can still hurt you. More than that, it will hurt your closest friends. When you've finally had enough, your ability to seek punishment for those who harm the ones you love will be precisely what they deserve. "
