Callie Walking is a freelance mage who solves supernatural problems. When a troubled client hires her to protect him from a “vampire”, she casts the appropriate spells and positions the usual amulets. Now, something has gone terribly wrong. Her client has turned up dead and drained of all his blood. The cops say it’s suicide, but Callie knows better.
Now she is on a mission to find out what went wrong. In her search she
uncovers an ancient, long-hidden power. It challenges Callie’s deepest beliefs
about right and wrong, good and evil. She knows her life will be forever
changed… if she survives.
I love paranormal fiction, I'm not a huge fan of short stories only because you have to cram a lot of information in a short amount of time. I really liked the premise of this book it has stong foundations, a good story line, and interesting characters. I didn't really like the time jumping as I was reading I was confused as to why so much time had passed with little to no explanation. So when all was revealled I was happy to be back in the loop and final know just what the heck was going on, I think I would have like this book more if it was a longer story and you could see the relationship develop more between Callie and Risto, I feel like I was just getting to the nity gritty when it was over and was left wanting a little bit more (hence why i'm not a huge fan of short stories).
I will say that I did enjoy the read and I hope this isn't the last we see of these characters, I feel that this is just the begining of what could be a broken but beautiful friendship.
I gave this book a 3.5 out of 5 star rating
