Trust Alice. Private Investigator of the Supernatural.
Mage private investigator Alice Worth must solve the most difficult case of her career—her own.
A magic-induced bloodbath during a Vampire Court gala leaves Alice and her boyfriend, alpha werewolf Sean Maclin, wounded. Alice and her ghost sidekick Malcolm reluctantly agree to investigate the deadly supernatural attack.
When they vanish without a trace, Sean, his pack, and the Court form an uneasy alliance to locate them. Days later, Sean finds Alice on the side of the road far from home, with no memory and no magic—and no sign of Malcolm.
For Sean, Alice’s condition means starting over with the woman he loves. For Alice, it’s a chance to escape painful memories of her violent past, but she knows she needs her power back before her enemies learn she’s vulnerable.
To find Malcolm and her stolen magic, she and Sean team up with his pack, a white witch, the Court, and a pair of dangerous black witches.
Their investigation unearths an ancient vendetta and a shadowy enemy so powerful and ruthless, no one involved—most of all Alice—will ever be the same.
Wow. Just wow. It has taken me some time to write this review. It’s no secret that this is one of my favorite series and that Alice is my girl. The author shook me with this book. From the story to the action to the characters, it left me with a huge book hangover. Danger is never far from Alice and this time it really grabbed her and didn’t let go. The story had me at the edge of my seat. SO much had happened and a lot more was coming! There were some twists I didn’t see coming and some scenes that had me shouting out loud “Whyyyy!” This book invokes all kinds of emotions, the kind I expect when reading a Lisa Edmonds book. I. Loved. Every. Minute. Of. It.
This was a fantastic and entertaining read! Well written and wonderful storytelling! Now I wait not so patiently for the next. I give this 5 stars.
