Jacqueline was attacked a long time ago, a night that cost her her husband who tried to defend her. It left her badly injure but alive, and then there is Toby a wizard assigned to keep an eye on Jacqueline, who is a half Banshee, they can be very dangerous in wrong hands. A wizard tries ti kidnap her to miss use her powers, at that point Jacqueline realizes what happened to her and what powers she has, Loved this book, Jacqueline and Toby are great characters and the book held my attention from page one. Loved the twists and the humor in it too. Job well done!

Generally speaking, I enjoy stories that embrace the paranormal and mythology and that holds mostly true for this one. Richards has a good premise for her story. A young woman's husband is killed trying to protect her and in the process finds herself inexplicably not only drawn to death when it happens in her vicinity, but to sing as it happens. Over time, she finds herself drawn into a world she had no idea existed and learns she is slowly turning into a banshee. Unknown to Jacqueline through most of the book, as a half banshee, she is a power to be reckoned with. People are trying to capture her for their own dark reasons.   This book has all the usual components of this type of story. There's romance, loss, revenge, greed, a few surprises, and a good plot. What the story lacks to make this book truly compelling are both characters, and a plot that are fully developed. There are places in the story where the plot is still a bit rough as well as events happening out of sequence that need to be addressed (i.e. - asking her mother if she's adopted after telling Toby she is). While the problems in this book are not severe enough to warrant pulling it off the shelves, they are significant enough to detract from the reading experience.  Due to the lack of sufficient editing, I can only give this book 3 stars. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
