Before trust and love can take hold, grow solid roots, and blossom into a reality larger than self, fear must be conquered and faith embraced. Yet fear of an ancient prophecy, of burning magical power, and a broken heart, Sanura Williams, psychology professor, is unprepared when Special Agent Assefa Berber enters her life, hunting a preternatural serial killer. Assefa’s intelligent, chocolate eyes and intoxicating aura signature stirs her fire spirit but frightens the woman.
In a world where all is not as it seems, Sanura and Assefa must battle the gods’ first creations – vile predators who threaten the safety of humans. Each confrontation, each bloody clash, will bring Sanura and Assefa closer to fulfilling the prophecy of being the Fire Witch and Cat of Legend – the ones who will save humanity from the Water Witch of Legend. Death, godly magic, and physical attraction draw Sanura and Assefa to each other, but fear and faith will determine their destiny. ** A great paranormal romance.
One of my first loves is the paranormal genre, and so I quickly jumped on the chance to read this book because it sounded so different from what I have read in the past. And it did end up being different completely.
I do want to say that the author did a great job at building up the world, adding the background information, and explaining how/why everything was happening the way it was. It was done in a way that didn’t feel like it was an overload of information that was coming in, but it was done in a way that it felt like it was part of the story itself.
The characters were really well done — and they (even the secondary) were all done in such different ways that it was really easy to tell them apart and to be able to connect with them.
The story line was one that did pique my interest and kept me wanting to read more and find out what was going to happen next.
I wouldn’t say that this book ends on a cliffhanger per say – but it does end in a way that left me wanting to know what was going to happen next.
Overall I thought it was a very nice read for a weekend read and I will be sure to keep an eye out for other books from this author in the future.
