My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Interesting premise, but a little more time could have been spent on world building at the beginning of the book because there were times when I kind of went hunh at a number of major plot points.
The first person dual pov was a bit jumpy but not horrible. The plot itself is interesting and there is definite potential in this series.
In a world where there are witches and witch hunters there is a war raging between the two groups. A war that has shifted somehow and now the witch hunters are killing more and more witches. One in particular, Wade Rawthorne, has been instrumental in dozens of witch deaths because witches were evil and the witch hunters were following the holy edict of the angels (this is something that confused me, I have to admit - angels and angel blood were never really explained beyond their existing in this universe).
On the other side of the war are the witches. They're hated by the hunters and trying to survive. But there's a traitor among their ranks, someone giving away witch secrets to the witch hunters. Enter Caleb - a rather unique witch - he's sent to figure out what has changed in the war.
Wade and Caleb are reluctant allies in the war, trying to figure out who the traitor is before it's too late. These enemies turn to lovers with some urban fantasy thrown in. View all my reviews
