Garnet Lacey is a witch with a Goddess. Yes, she harbors the Goddess Lilith inside her. She is at last happy and not afraid to turn the next corner, now that the Vatican witch hunters and the FBI are no longer after her. But things cannot remain peaceful for long. Especially now that her vampire boyfriend, Sebastian, has asked her to marry him.

Matayas Von Traum is Sebastian's son and has in the past tried to have Garnet and his father killed. Now he has returned to try and stop his father from making what he believes is a big mistake. When his father goes missing, will he be able to put aside all dislike and help Garnet find his father?

Garnet works in an occult bookstore and is hoping to buy it, her boyfriend has asked her to marry him, and she wants to start another coven. All seems right in her world until Sebastian goes missing and his son, Matayas, shows up. After contacting two of Sebastian's "suppliers", or as Garnet calls them, ghoulfriends, she has a feeling they may know more. When she is magically attacked and her new coven as well, she knows she must put a stop to it and also try to find Sebastian. But wait, why not throw in a trickster God who tries to steal her Goddess Lilith? Now she has more problems than she can handle.

I love Garnet. She is an amazing character. Ms. Hallaway has a unique twist to her story, with both Garnet and Sebastian. The reader is led on a merry chase to uncover who is behind the vampire napping. I read this in one sitting and kept trying to guess who the culprit was. Ms. Hallaway hides the truth until the very end and closes her book with a bang. I will be reading more of this series in the future, I am sure.
