A bit confusing, very Harry Potterish
During the events set at the school I couldn't help but be reminded of Harry Potter as these individuals go through much training to perfect their mystical skills. Once their skills are put to the test we get to see a roller coaster assortment of high energy action sequences which escalate into life or death consequences as a killer demon is on the loose hunting healers. These exciting scenes, as well as the likable and memorable characters, made for a fun story that kickstarts this new series nicely. I look forward to seeing these characters mature and the further earth shattering events that may befall them.

There wasn't a whole lot that I liked about this book. The "heroine"--whiny, egotistical. I never did figure out what was so bad about having waning magic. So what if she was the first woman to ever have it. Her twin brother was the first male to have waxing magic but he wasn't whining and complaining about it. I agree with another reviewer that she acted like a 14-year-old. This was more of angst-filled love story than urban fantasy. I didn't like her, Peter, or her parents. The best part of the story is Ari. He is a great mature guy with a good head on his shoulders. There is no action in the story. It is basically Noon whining all the time because she isn't a healer. I won't be buying any more of the series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book is terrible
This book is terrible.
First if you are a Christian I urge you to stay away from this book. It will offend your religious beliefs. I don't consider myself a Bible thumping, go to church everyday type of individual, but the author writes of a world where the Savior (for Christians, that would be Jesus Christ)has been defeated by Lucifer. In this world Lucifer is made out to be a hero. Worshiping demons is acceptable. There's no conflict with this reality. The sacrifice of blood is considered an acceptable reality.
Second this book is bad even if you're not a religious person. The main character can't be described as a hero. She's more of selfish self-centered individual. The book tries to be more of a romance novel than an actual sci-fi fantasy novel.
Third from the storytelling perspective, the book lacks action, adventure,or intrigue. In the beginning the book reads interestingly enough, but after a while it continues to drag on. I'm deeply disappointed in this book and I do not recommend it.
