Ryder is a witch with two secrets—one about his blood and the other about his heart. Keeping the secrets hasn’t been a problem, until a tarot reading with his best friend, Liam Montgomery, who happens to be one of his secrets, starts a chain of events that can’t be undone.
Dark magic runs through Ryder’s veins. The cards have prophesized a magical catastrophe that could shake the foundation of Ryder’s life, and a vicious partnership with the one person he doesn’t want to risk.
Magic and secrets both come at a cost, and Ryder must figure out what he’s willing to pay to become who he truly is.
Review: So, I read this book in a little less than a day, when I had to work. It was that good. I'm partial to anything related to witches and magic, especially when you can tell some real thought and perhaps research went into the world crafting, and not just haphazardly throwing ideas together and hoping they flow. I love that the witches have specialties and while there is some light and dark separation in the magic, it's not as black and white as the lighter witches would want you to think. I love Ryder. He's got a good balance of light and dark, and I can understand his reservations about revealing his secrets when members of his coven aren't always the most open minded. I like the fact that Liam is apparently just as into him and neither one has realized it. Better than the usual guy falls for best friend he thinks is straight and never gets him, or worse has to turn him. This story flew by and absorbed me in it from the opening.
