She was born to save what he is sworn to destroy
A lapsed Wiccan, Indira Simon doesn't believe in magic anymore. But when strange dreams of being sacrificed to an ancient Babylonian god have her waking up with real rope burns on her wrists, she's forced to acknowledge that she may have been too hasty in her rejection of the unknown. Then she meets mysterious and handsome Father Thomas. Emerging from the secrecy of an obscure Gnostic sect, he arrives with stories of a demon, a trio of warrior witches—and Indira's sacred calling.

Yet there's something even Tomas doesn't know, an inescapable truth that will force him to choose between saving the life of the woman he's come to love—and saving the world.

My Thoughts

I requested this book because I thought maybe I would to get a fresh take on a witch tale, I didn't.

This was a typical witchy book (for me at least). You got your typical crazy older priest whose out to save the world by destroying a demon he thinks is going to take over the world, a young priest who doesn't really believe in all the mumble jumble; but shuffles along with the craziness, and a woman who is incarnated with soul of a decades old dead witch and of course doesn't know what the heck is going on with the crazy things with or around her. All these things had me rolling my eyes in frustration.

Without telling much, I'll just say that of course the young priest and the un-suspected woman end up together and get their HEA. So to say the least, I didn't like this book. The only thing I liked was Indira's witt and snark, it wasn't overdone or too much. She was funny and likable...too bad the story wasn't as likable as it's main character.

But don't like my view deter may just like the story. If you do, let me know.
