This third book in the series is centred on the character of Paige Winterbourne. Paige is a twenty three year old witch. Paige has always been too young or too rebellious to succeed her mother as the leader of the American Coven of Witches.
Now her mother is dead so Paige needs to step up and be the leader of the Coven.Being at the age of twenty-three the Elders cannot deny her right to follow her mother as the Coven leader, even though some of them may not like it.
However Paige's antics fade in comparison to those of her new charge. This new charge is a girl who is pursued by the dark faction of the paranormal world. They are a dangerous and vicous group who will do anything to get their hands on the girl. Paige has to use her magic to try and make sure they both survive.
I enjoyed this book when I got over the inital disappointment that it was not about Clay and Elena. This book is all about witches both the good and the bad ones, and paiges battle to make sure the girl she has taken under her wing does not stray to the dark side of magic.
