ARC kindly provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.


Wizards. Shifters. Murderers. 
Welcome to Woodland Creek where one family of wizards gives new meaning to organized crime. 

Evie Scarlett wanted two things: marry Parker Drake and leave Woodland Creek. 
But when Hugh Prince, a dangerous crime boss, is mysteriously murdered while awaiting trial for her father's murder, all eyes turn to the Scarlett family. 

The arrival of Hugh's youngest son, Avalon brings a century-old feud to a dangerous climax. This vengeful wizard gives Evie's older brother a choice: die or give Evie to him. 


When Evie's plans for escape are broken by familial duty, she must find a way to protect those she loves and win back her freedom. What she finds is an ancient power that she never knew she had. 

A power that might change everything she thought she knew about her family.


"Just like her mother, Evie transformed into a creature of myth, legend, and nightmare."

Evie was born into a family of wizards...or so she thought that she is entirely a wizard.  Caught in the war between two families , Evie tries to keep the love of her life and end the war between Scarlett and Prince . But on the road  discovers that her mother, brother and sister-in-law they all have another dark side .  Including Evie, she discovers new powers and her true form.  Deep buried secrets come out to light..
I really enjoyed this story, however I'm not  sure if we really have a a main character or characters as the book is written from both Evie and Olivia's sides and Evie didn't really do much in the book. She went to Avalon more because she was forced by her mother, then she got saved by her and the rest of her family.  Olivia pretty much did all of the dirty work. and her husband Wes, also Evie's brother,is no better than Avalon. Looking from outside, this entire war started because of the Scarlett family  and continued by Wes. 
But that is just how I see this story. just feel that the story didn't really had a happy ending. The good guys turn out to be the bad guys and vice-versa. Evie , Parker and Avalon Prince are the  innocent characters that crossed the path of war. Evie's mom, Wes and even Olivia. I believe they are the real bad characters in the story., I mean...even the book cover is suggestive.

Anyway, I have a weird way of seeing things.
