    This book seemed interesting right off the back, and when I read Jolie's series I was correct. Mallory's story line is very interesting and a lovable with the male role of "Rand" in the story. Unfortunately the ending of the book could have been better and not felt so cut off. I love the books and wished they had a better ending and not so abrupt. Other then that a good read!

    This story was as good as the first book. Sad that this story is over and hope Mallory would write another story with Jolie and Rand. Unfortunately I felt that this ending was abrupt and there was no ease with the love story. The detailing in the middle was well thought out, but when it came to the climax it was abrupt and the ending was cut very short.

    Courtesy of Happy Endings Reviews Jolie Wilkins Series is written with a psychic heroine that is naïve about her inner powers of being a witch. Jolie owns her own psychic shop, it seems strange for single women to own this type of store, but yet it fits her. She is after all a psychic herself. She reads aura But then the strangest thing happens, this guy, Rand, comes out of nowhere and purchases her “Psychic Services” for three weeks. It’s a job she cannot refuse. Jolie is unaware of this mystery guy’s reasoning for hiring her, but hey – it’s her job and she finds him attracted, so why not. His aura is like nothing else she has ever seen. Rand is handsome, mysterious, and protective. Rand approaches Jolie with some psychic tests to see what the strength of power really is. After Jolie accomplishes the task Rand has set for her is when things start to change. Certain situations occur, things she was never aware of, the political vampire / witch rules. I think in the novel Rand should have pressed the issue to Jolie about the political rules of their world if she did the job or was found by the council. The repercussions of “stepping out” into the supernatural world. Also there is Rand’s number one enemy and the second love interest Sinjin Sinclair a very sexy vampire who brings the jealousy out of Rand. This brings a new enjoyable twist in the novel. You cannot hate to love Sinjin. I think this series is splendid because of the favors of both Rand and Sinjin. In most books you have this favorable opinion to the first interest in the story line, but HP Mallory has given a lot of lovable traits to both male love interests. Jolie Wilkins is a common heroine that is naïve and has irrational instincts, but I think she has a strong will to fight and to keep her control to her own life and that’s why she’s such a great character. This plot is original and the writing style is common but overall is such a great series because of the different storylines and the uniqueness of the endings. The controversy and love interests in this tale are impeccably great. I hope you enjoy it! Cheers!
