His magic is older than time. But can it save her life?
Hayley McAllister thought she was safe, tucked away in tiny, unassuming Payson, Arizona. Her parents disagree and send her to stay in Jerome, where they hope their witch clan's elders will be able to shield Hayley and her unusual gift from Joaquin Escobar, the dark user of magic who has taken over the Santiago clan in California.
As Hayley settles into her brother Brandon's apartment in Jerome, she encounters temptation personified -- the hunk next door. An insanely handsome Greek god of a warlock.
From the moment Levi meets Hayley, her serene blue eyes and quick smile weave a spell that has nothing to do with her magical talent -- an ability to amplify any witch or warlock's power with just a touch. Their attraction needs no amplification, but Levi's high-octane, not-of-this-world powers are tested when Escobar's demons attack.
The McAllister clan is strong, but it's clear that even with Hayley's signal boost, their wards may not keep Joaquin Escobar from opening a demonic portal to pluck her from their very midst. Unless Levi takes one last-ditch chance that would save Hayley's life...but might cost his own.

In the latest book of the Witches of Cleopatra Hill series, Christine Pope takes a different tack from her other books. In this book, one of the protagonists isn’t human. Levi “McAllister” was brought to life in Strange Magic. In a plot twist that surprised me, Levi was allowed to live instead of being sent back to whatever plane he came from. Instead, he’s sent to Jerome to the McAllister clan. There he settles in and learns how to be and also explores his powers as a warlock. Hayley McAllister has been sent to Jerome by her parents. Hayley’s gift is to increase the power of a witch or warlock that is near her. Unfortunately for her, Hayley’s gift makes her a perfect target for the Escobars, two warlocks trying to take over the witch clans in California and Arizona. On the flip side, is Hayley’s meeting with Levi, the “Greek god” who lives next to the apartment she shares with her brother. But what will happen when she finds out that Levi isn’t human? It was a lot of fun to return to the Witches series and even more to see characters such as Angela and Connor, who were in the series from the beginning. I would have liked Hayley’s character to be a little more developed, with more back story, but I still found it to be a very entertaining read as all Christine Pope’s books are.
