Blurb: The blood sacrifices have brought rain to Demonside, but across the void, the Warlock College of Vinland is still storing and gathering magic, heedless of the warnings of the international magical community. The underground is full of warlocks who disagree with the college, but do they care about wizards and demons or only about snatching power?
With a foot in each world, Angus is no longer sure whom he can trust. The demons don’t trust humans, and even though he is learning more magic, he will never be one of them. He is human and only tolerated. Some demons would be happy to slit his throat. It’s only because his demon is powerful in his own right that Angus is alive.
Saka only has a year to prove that Angus’s people can change and that the magic taken will be rebalanced, but the demons want action. His affection for Angus is clouding his judgment and weakening his position in the tribe. Time is running out, and he must make a choice.

Review: This is the second story in the series. Two worlds that depend on the each other are being thrown off due to an imbalance. The results of what could happen are frightening and scary for the characters. Angus finds himself growing attracted to his college friend Terrance as Saka comes to terms with his feelings for Angus.
I loved everything about this story. The characters were well thought out and played their parts to bring this book to life. I loved the dynamics between the worlds as we traverse between worlds with Angus. The differences were plain to see.
The solution finding to the problem of the imbalance and it’s possible outcomes were terrifying. I found myself riveted to my seat as this brilliantly written story unfolded. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series to see what happens next.
