Have you ever wondered what could be hiding in the shadows?
Well, for eighteen-year-old Zahara Faraday, she doesn’t have to wonder. You see she comes from a lineage of Light Witches, those who have chosen to help protect and serve between the supernatural world and the human world. The only problem is Zahara, like her father Solomon, is as human as a human being can be whereas her mother, Mia, and her Aunt Catalina, were born as Light Witches. As a family they hunt down rogue supernaturals—creatures who harm humans or who have committed an act against their kingdom. 

Zahara’s hunting skills are usually kept dormant since her parents would prefer she live life as a normal human girl without knowledge of the supernatural world. She plans on doing just that—except when she finds a couple being attacked by fairies, she has no choice but to step in. Before she can return to pretending to be blissfully ignorant, Zahara encounters a problem she isn’t the least equip to handle: Bryan Hamilton, the good looking new co-worker she has to help train. In a heartbeat, her best friend, Becca King, has set her up on a double date with herself and her new crush, Rekesh Saint-Louis, who happens to be the most powerful leader of the biggest Imago Coven in South Florida –supernatural creatures with the ability to control water . . . and suck out human souls. 

Zahara has no time to focus on how she’s going to explain her double date with her best friend and the enemy they have a tentative truce with to her parents because soon one of the members of Mia and Catalina’s coven is found murdered with a strange tattoo of a snake with wings carved into his arm.

Zahara is then thrown into a whirlwind battle with an angel determined to have revenge against God, an Imago coven she doesn’t think they should trust, and slew of dream-eating fairies and powerful Nephilims, hybrid children of angels and humans, more than happy to rip her to shreds.

Normal just got a deadlier definition.

My Review
Zahara knows all about the supernatural world. She has grown up in a family that hunts down rogue supernaturals. While her mom and aunt are members of the Light Witches, Zahara and her dad are human. She along with her best friend Becca have some defense training from her dad. The family would like to keep her away from that life but she has a habit of going after rogues or jumping in when she thinks someone is in trouble. Soon Zahara finds she has a different reason for staying out of the supernatural things. Lucifer has come back and wants her for a reason. She has to stay safe but that is hard to do when she has a crush on an angel named Brian and her best friend is falling for an enemy of the good supernaturals.  She will have to face down all kinds of beings after her but she never knows who to trust.

Zahara is a strong girl from a great family. They are loving, funny and always there for her. She is a bit headstrong and runs into trouble quite often because she always wants to help people. Becca is very similar to Zahara and you can see why they get along so well. Brian is an angel sent to do good. He always knows when Zahara is in trouble. It would be very hard not to fall for him. Rekesh  is the one on the side of the bad but is willing to help them all keep Zahara and Becca safe. You can never tell about him whether he is doing things for his self or others. I have to say I really like him.

I really enjoyed this book. There is several different paranormal beings you get to see from Fairies, Angels, Witches and more. There is plenty of action going on. You never know when danger is going to appear in this book. I liked all of the characters even some of the bad ones. I will say there is lots of twist and turns and you never know what will happen. The ending I was surprised hugely by and it makes me crave the next book even more. I need to know what will happen next. I won't give any spoilers but I will say expect the unexpected.

4 out of 5 Stars

“The girl is a means to an end. When the right time comes, she will be used and discarded as the rest.” ~Lucifer

“I promise to keep my perverse thoughts to myself as long as I don’t have to deal with the fury of Zahara” ~Bryan

“All those night long phone calls! All those secret visits to my house! All those secret walks! And you’re fond of me! You think I’m being over dramatic! How about I break your face open for over dramatics!” ~Becca

“Time to kick some demon arse!” ~Dustin

“He looks like the type that only wants to get into your pants.” ~Solomon

“Of course not, I am after all the irresistible-dangerous-Imago so that must mean I have a sordid plan.” ~Rekesh

“Enough with the games, I know what you are, Nephilim and if you make one move, I promise I will carve you open.” ~Zahara

“Time is endless for a being such as I. Power is the only master I trust.” ~Lucifer
