hellfire.jpgMarion Garin is the teenage daughter of Metaraon, the former Voice of God. Now she’s also the steward of the Winter Court, which has been in anarchy since a revolution five years earlier.

Problem: Marion still doesn’t remember anything that happened before two weeks ago.

Seth Wilder has a lead on her memories. Whoever stole them and sold Marion’s essence to a demon lord in Sheol. Marion wants to help steal them back, even though that means abandoning the Winter Court to war. And Seth can’t seem to tell Marion no.

He wants Marion nearby. Very nearby. Possibly in his teeth. See, Seth has this little problem where he’s developing a killing urge, and it seems to be centered primarily on the half-angel girl who adores him. It conflicts with everything Seth believes himself to be: a moral man, a doctor who heals instead of hurts. Yet he’s obsessed with Marion. She wants her memories, and he wants her to have them as much as he wants her blood.

They’ll work together to make Marion whole, come hell or high water. Even if it means war. Even if it means Seth might hurt Marion. And damned be the consequences…


Wow.  Once again, Ms Reine has created a complex web of demons, magic, angels, politics, betrayal and love, and has presented it all in a handy book, for your reading pleasure.

The Magecraft series is rapidly shaping up to be one of my favourites of the many I have read from this author.  The world building has an ease and simplicity to it which belies the convoluted connections and back references, and is simply there.  Fully evolved.

As always, there is enough going on in this book to make your head spin.  Nevertheless, it left me wanting more.  Fortunately, I know that I’m unlikely to have to wait too long for the next one.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

About the author

smreineHi everyone! My name is Sara, and I write urban fantasy and paranormal novels as SM Reine. I collect swords, cat hair, and typewriters (which I do use for writing!). It’s a good day when those three things have nothing to do with each other.

If you would like to know the instant my next book is available, you should enlist in my Army of Evil! We have a wicked cool secret handshake, but you’ll have to sign up to learn it. 😉 Check it out — Army of Evil
