Turned into a vampire against her will, twenty-eight-year-old Merit found her way into the dark circle of Chicago’s vampire underground, where she learned there was more to supernaturals than met the eye—and more supernaturals than the public ever imagined.
And not all the secrets she learned were for sharing—among humans or inhumans.
First I just want to say “flippin gnomes”, haha they were too funny. But ok on a serious note, the last book left us, with Mallory trying to destroy Chicago, and bringing Ethan back into our lives, Thank you Ms. Neill. This book starts us off with Merit and Ethan heading to Nebraska, to make sure Mallory doesn’t get her hands on the Malificium. On the way they encounter Tate, who pretty much made their lives flip over for a minute. Once they’ve regathered their wits they finally make their destination, and this is where we meet a new character in the book, the Sorceress Paige. She is the Orders, archivist. Her house is filled with books, I mean everywhere stacked in neat piles all over. But she’s the current protector of the Malificium. Any way, the place where it’s kept is an old military silo, and they were so sure that it was safe. That was until Mallory decided to make an appearance, but before hand during a romantic interlude between Merit and Ethan, they meet a fiesty gnome name “Todd” well Todd and the other gnomes try to help Merit and Ethan with Mallory, it didn’t go as well as planned. The end result of small battle (no pun intended), was that Mallory and thus beknown Tate have gotten a hold of Paige, and wouldn’t you know it, the Malificium. Mallory starts the spelled needed to whatever she needed to do, to the book but while she is doing it, Tate touches the book and Splits apart. NO JOKE, I mean literally was ripped in two. Well come to find out they’re angels one on the side of good, and the other welp i’m sure you’ve guessed but the other was a fallen angel, who by the way is a messenger of justice. So the fallen angel Tate, who’s name is Dominic, starts killing people, in the eye of justice. So in this book Merit and the gang try to help Mallory over come her addiction to dark magic, with the help of Gabriel and his pack. Deal with the GP who is still hell in their lives, and Ethan’s connection to Mallory, and Dominic’s need to serve Justice. Well lets just say at the end of this book, we got a few happy endings. And maybe a revolt against the GP???
