For a decade, Angel Salvatore has been the most powerful sorcerer and only necromancer in all the Northeast. Never one to ask permission nor apologies, he has acted with near impunity for years.
The High Council of Sorcery has come to Boston, and Angel is their target. Charged with numerous violations of practitioner laws, his freedom and family are placed in jeopardy.
If found guilty, Angel’s apprentice Daniel will be imprisoned to serve out the remaining years of his apprenticeship. Isaac, his brother, is too vulnerable to be left unguarded, and Angel fears for his sanity and health. And Simeon, Elder vampire and Angel’s mate, refuses to see Angel convicted under the laws of the Council and his actions to keep Angel free threaten to start a war that could destroy their world. And Angel faces the severest of punishments—the castration of his gifts.
The Council has never cared for the people of Boston, and Angel doubts their motives. They have come for some insidious reason, and it has nothing to do with upholding the law and everything to do with Angel.
Dealing with an impending trial, a wayward ghost, and a grave-robbing ring of thieves leaves Angel on the edge. He thinks he may have a handle on things until violence erupts across the city, and a stranger comes to town…a stranger with his own dark powers of necromancy.
Review: This is one of those series that need to be read in order. It is all about our sexy necromancer and his vampire mate. These two together will knock people on their ass and keep their family safe.
What happens when you piss off one hell of a strong necromancer? You go after his mate and his charge, boy the council is in for one hell of a fight. To top it off the grave robbers is still up to no good, and damn if they don’t have a surprise, one they didn’t even know they had.
The High Council of Sorcery has decided to go after Angel, and the only way they can do it is to go after his family. Isaac has a drinking problem and it is now time to nip it in the butt. Angel is in for a very long day. The idiots at the council want to take Daniel with them, thinking that it will be the way to control Angel. Fire up their ass is about what they are going to get.
The guys are about to go through the hardships that many feel. Isaac needs help with his drinking problem and love can only go so far. He feels so much guilt and it will take awhile for him to realize that he doesn’t need to fill what he feels. It is action packed, danger filled, exciting and fascination all rolled into one amazing package. This is one of those stories that will catch your attention with the first paragraph and keep it all the way to the end.
I had to go back and read the first two books once more before getting started on this book. It is also one of those books that will be read more than once. I get a kick out of Eroch and will admit that the little dragon is my absolute favorite of the whole book. This book gave me everything I could want in a book and so much more.
I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. This is one book that I would definitely recommend reading.
