Alexandra Chandler is a demon hunter who can also banish and summon demons, a rare talent that has caught the attention of Erielnael. A high-ranking demon, Erielnael wants to have her as his familiar for both her power and body. A group of demon hunters also take notice, giving her no options. She has to agree to aid them or else, which will have her leaving everything she has known before.
Part of a group of demon hunters, Cole Murrough has a dark secret. At first, he does not trust Alex because sabotage occurs soon after she joins. He is still drawn to her, though he wonders who is behind the things that are happening. Are the problems really caused by her? Will his secret get in the way of his attraction for her?
Erielnael says he wants to use her power to open a gate between his world and hers. The Council says they want her to help them in keeping the gate closed. Everyone wants something from Alex, but who is really telling the truth? She will have to find it, including the one about Cole, the person she is beginning to be drawn to, despite his being surly and moody.
I really like this story. The outcome is unexpected. This story had demons, magic and betrayal. In addition, dealing with Cole’s dark secret throws in some suspense, too. All of the pieces tie together smoothly, which makes for a great read. This book seems a promising start to a new series, and I look forward to reading more about the world and its characters.
