Jacob loves Emilia Gray, but things aren’t always that simple in the world of Magickind…
The war has begun.
The Dragons are gaining power, and the Gray Clan stands alone. Desperate to find a way to stop the Pendragon, Emilia is forced to seek answers from someone who hasn’t been seen in seventeen years… Her mother. Embarking on a magical journey filled with witches, wizards, centaurs and a dangerous and powerful Siren, Jacob and Emilia must take a leap of faith to a land neither could have ever imagined… and hope they can then find their way home.
“It’s gone,” she whispered, holding out her left hand. A hand without a trace of gold.
Emilia and Jacob are trying to find a way to stop the Dragons. After being captured and subsequently tethered to Jacob by her father, Emile LeFay, the Pendragon, leader of the Dragons, Emilia feels as if life holds no meaning other than being scared. The only person she wants to be near is the one person she’s being avoided by. Jacob loves her and always has but her doesn’t want her love to come from the feelings the tethering conjure.
I couldn’t believe it when I got to the end of the book. It was a surprise to me when I turned the page and it was over. I’m looking forward to reading the next one.
If you’ve read and love Harry Potter books, I definitely recommend this series. It’s a lot like HP books, but set in America in the real world and not in a magical community. The characters are witches and wizards trying to live amongst the humans without them finding out about their powers. However, like the Death Eaters, the evil group of righteousness is called Dragons. The spells are different and the magic is handled a little differently.
Give it a try with an open mind and enjoy it. It wasn’t until this book and telling my husband about it, I realized the similarities but it doesn’t detract from the story at all.
