When Sophie moves to Boston to get away from the people who ridiculed her for her psychic talents, she wants to start fresh. But when a demon attacks her study group at the library, she has no choice but to reveal her abilities to warn the others.

She learns the attacks won't stop until she's dead. To stay alive she joins forces with the other students and a secret society that has battled the demons for centuries.

Will she survive long enough to stop the demons from destroying everything and everyone she loves?


My Review: 5+ magical stars
OH MY GOODNESS!!!! This was .....I don't know what words to discribe it. It was amazing! I love a good paranormal story and this was just WOW beyond amazing. It was thrilling and scary and filled with so much emotion. I really can't believe this is Samantha long's first book. The characters are all great and written very well. The story was fantastic and the descriptions made it seem like a movie playing in my head. Just when I thought things were going to calm down and just finish the story something would happen to make my heart race and it would all pick up and start over again. I had no idea what was going to happen next and it kept me on my toes. I loved everything about this except that it ended before I was ready and leaves me wanting the next book to come out right now. If you can think of every great paranormal book or movie you have ever read or watched and put all that together in to one book that is how great this was. Simply put it is amazing, I loved it, and anyone who likes paranormal stories should read this.

Excerpt:
            Movement caught her gaze. Tristan stalked forward, his motions flowed, cat like.
            She stood, frozen.  His eyes paralyzed her with their predatory gleam.  If this was a war, she’d lost weeks ago.
            He stopped right in front of her.  Tempted her with his closeness.  He placed his hands on either side of her neck.
            Warmth immediately permeated her body and her lips parted.  Blood thundered in her ears.
            Then, his lips touched hers.  It wasn’t a sweet, I-missed-you kiss.  He pressed his body into hers, invading her senses, and poured all his pent up frustration into it.
            A tear slipped down her cheek even as she kissed him back.  His hurt flowed into her.
            She’d made him feel used.
            Before she had time to process all of this, he pulled back.  Accusation shone in his eyes.  A low growl rumbled in his throat.  The animal in him prowled right underneath the surface.
            It was time for the end battle.  No matter how this ended, it would be final.  They’d either make up or hate each other forever.

Author Bio

I'm a multitasking mom of four.  When not writing/doing laundry/changing diapers, I like to catch up on episodes of Supernatural and Castle.  If you can't find me in front of the computer, I'm most likely watching my DVR.

​I've been writing since the first grade, where I wrote a one page story titled "If I was an Indian".  My warrior husband was going to be the best hunter, I was going to live in the best teepee and apparently, I was having an affair with the Chief.  Racy, I know.

​Of the things I'm addicted to sweet tea, movies, and books top the list.  My favorite authors include Nora Roberts, Lauren Kate, Kresley Cole, and Gena Showalter.  Few of many I love.

​Thanks so much for reading!

Sam :)
