SynopsisProphecies, tyrants, assassins, and exiled royalty aren't the things Edith Walsh thought she'd be dealing with when her training as a mage apprentice began. Her main focus is becoming an enchantress by completing the Final Calling—a grand scavenger hunt all apprentices undertake to gather items needed to craft their coveted staff and gain eternal life.

This challenge can prove lethal if care isn't taken to watch one's steps. But making matters worse, Edith has also been marked for death by the Steward of the Perosian Empire, a tyrant named Rothario, all because of a pesky prophecy made centuries before her birth foretelling his demise at her hands.


So what's a mage to do? Simple; accept the assistance of a sexy Perosian who's dealt with Rothario's minions for as long as he can remember. Yet Isaac wants far more than Edith's safety—she's his mate, and his fiery gaze, wicked tongue, and shameless seductions inflame her more intensely than she's ever known.

Convicted of murdering the imperial family of Perosia, Isaac's spent centuries as a fugitive hunted by a homeland he doesn't recall. But his ruthless talent for survival serves him well, and there's nothing he won't do to protect Edith from the forces threatening her life, even if it means sacrificing his own.


The Romance Review

**Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for honest review.** 

Who knew a demon could be such a charmer? Umm... I did!

I have been a fan of Isaac, our sharp-tongued demon, since he first appeared earlier in the series. We learned of the prophecy regarding his mate and even met the woman in a previous book. Well, now it's finally time for Isaac to meet his mate. And their union was just as fun as I hoped it would be.

Isaac has waited a long time for this. I mean centuries. He has known that his prophesied eternal partner would be Chandra's first apprentice. The problem is, Chandra had yet to take an apprentice despite his constant encouraging her to do so. Until now.

Edith is new to magic and preparing to begin her Calling, a final challenge that will make or break her magical future. And the mage-in-training has no idea that she is also about to be saddled with a salacious demon that sees her in his lust-filled dreams. Their meeting is full of sparks, both demonic and magical.

The road ahead is anything but easy as Edith's magical puzzle is only one part of the equation. A vicious ruler, stalking brutes, and shadow creatures are bent on destroying the couple and preventing the prophecy from coming true. They will have to travel across realms, battle crones, and bargain with a dragon along the way.

This book was a blast! I didn't want it to end. Isaac and Edith's chemistry sizzled and so did the love scenes. Heck, nearly every scene that they were in together was steamy. Not to mention, hilarious. I laughed the entire time at Isaac's jokes and lewd humor. Fantastic. Just fantastic.

In closing...
This book is my favorite of the series! Isaac and Edith were such a great couple to read about. I am so happy that the next book of the series will be released soon! Five naughty suns!
