Everyone has secrets.
Even best friends.

Swirling black descends like ravens, large enough to block the glow of the streetlights. A dull roar starts like a train on the ‘L’, a far-away rumbling that grows louder as it pulls closer, until it’s directly overhead and you feel it in your chest, except this doesn’t pass you by. Verity, white-faced and eyes blazing, shouts through the din, "Run, Mo!”

Mo Fitzgerald knows about secrets. But when she witnesses her best friend’s murder, she discovers Verity was hiding things she never could have guessed. To find the answers she needs and the vengeance she craves, Mo-quiet, ordinary, unmagical Mo-will have to enter a world of raw magic and shifting alliances. And she’ll have to choose between two very different, equally dangerous guys-protective, duty-bound Colin and brash, mysterious Luc. One wants to save her, one wants to claim her. Which would you choose?

"Who doesn't love a character torn between two dangerous worlds and two risky guys? The only thing safe about this book is how good it is.” --Lee Nichols, author of Deception,/I>, A Haunting Emma Novel

"Dark, exciting and totally addictive! Just…wow!” –Kristi Cook, author of

"Dark, magical, and delicious!” --New York Times Bestselling Author C. L. Wilson
