Twenty-eight year-old Cassie Strega can't escape fate.
All she wants is to live a normal, quiet life delivering the babies in her small town. But when she discovers she comes from a lineage of witches, her life becomes extraordinary—in the gravely dangerous type of way.
Then, she's reunited with her first love.
Orion, the sultry Fae warrior who broke her heart years before, is searching for a baby. Not just any baby, but the queen of the Fae who will one day lead them in their final battle against the demons determined to rule the world. The same baby who has been calling to Cassie for help in her dreams.
Fighting the intense attraction of their former blood bond, Cassie and Orion work together to find the child. But when the heartbreak that nearly destroyed Cassie nine years before looms once more, she'll have to decide whether getting involved in the supernatural war is worth losing everything, including her life.
Oh man I need the sequel
Note: I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. (Read April 23-25)
The only downside to receiving ARCs is that you have to wait even longer to get the sequels and you have a limited number of people to squeal to about how good this book is.
Oh man. When I received a copy of this book, I had no idea I would be so enamored with Cassie and her world. I couldn’t put my phone down; I was reading for hours and hours.
Cassie is such a relatable character and her personality is a whole mood. Her sarcasm, her sass (“I should have gone into the light” 😂), even her anger (especially when directed at Orion). Katie did an amazing job writing this book. The interactions are so realistic, the characters and their desires, their goals.
Cassie and Orion’s relationship is so interesting. Their banter (the motorcycle scene (“tinted windows” WHEW) especially) had me dying and overall this book is SO GOOD. I almost burst into tears when I turned the last page; I thought I had 20 pages left and was so disappointed when I found that wasn’t the case. I’m so looking forward to A Stormy and Sultry Sea.
