Salem’s always had sinister secrets. No one comes to understand this better than a sixteen-year-old girl who dies on Halloween night and is reborn a Seer.
The Seer can’t imagine anything worse than being an invisible teenager with enormous black wings. Until she finds out she’s been sacrificed to watch over Locke’s new flame.
Locke Cavanaugh is a Druid and part of the Order, a clandestine organization entrusted with keeping its members cloaked in the Ordinary world. Physically scarred from the accident that took his girlfriend’s life, Locke is searching for the OtherWorldly magic that damaged him because only those without blemish can rule the Order. And once at the helm of the Order, he has every intention of finding those responsible for her death.
On the West Coast, Keleigh Flaherty witnesses her parents’ murder by beasts that should only exist in nightmares. She is whisked off to the safety of Salem, where she learns how potent and dangerous her concealed Vate talents are. Keleigh wants to be Ordinary, but when her mother reaches out from the OtherWorld, and implores her to find a forgotten relic she’ll have to use all her ExtraOrdinary powers to locate it.
As Locke and Keleigh join forces, they unravel the Order’s involvement in the witch hysteria and murmurs of a Celtic prophecy. While Locke’s affection for Keleigh blooms, The Seer is torn between her duty to protect Keleigh, and her desire to stop Locke from making the ultimate sacrifice in order to earn Keleigh’s love . . .
But if they don’t find the witches bottle before the ShiningOnes do, someone stalking Keleigh from the shadows will take her instead and plunge all worlds into chaos.

While this may not be everyone's cup of tea, I did really enjoy it. Elizabeth Marx has created a wonderful world of magic and intrigue. I kind of went into this blindly and wasn't sure exactly what to expect. I'm so very glad that I judged this book on it's cover, which is AWESOME! I kind of went in reverse with this. I fell in love with the cover THEN the book.
Anyhoodle, this book has it all. Romance, thrills, chills, and some spills. (See what I did there?) From the start to the very finish it kept my attention and made me want more. Kaleigh and Locke are two amazingly well written characters. Their lives are so well done, they seem like they are real. Very realistically written and fun.
I will recommend to anyone that enjoys the Supernatural Romance/Thriller genres, or who just want to dip their toes in. This will please even the hardcore fans.
I give this a 4 out of 5 rating.
