My coven has remained hidden in the shadows for centuries.
We’ve avoided the ‘real world’ altogether; hiding from monsters
and other creatures we share this planet with.
We found protection in the Colville National Forest, nestled in a town protected
by magical barriers.
Our powers are locked by an ancient curse, one meant to protect us from being found.
Until now.
The past has a way of repeating itself. A new game is beginning. No one is safe.
He’s coming for me.
He’s hunting.
The monster we’ve run from for centuries has found us.
How far will this deadly game go?
How far will I be able to take it, or will he destroy me and everything I care about?
Will the one thing I can’t live without, be the key to destroying and undoing the past?
Or will the past destroy me before I can save the people I love from what I’ve done.

About the hero: chances are you may not fall instantly in love with him, that’s because I don’t write men you instantly love; you grow to love them. I don’t believe in instant-love. I write flawed, raw, caveman-like assholes that eventually let you see their redeeming qualities. They are aggressive, assholes, one step above a caveman when we meet them. You may not even like him by the time you finish this book, but I promise you will love him by the end of this series.

About the heroine: There is a chance, that you might think she’s a bit naïve, or weak, but then again who starts out as a badass? Badasses are a product of growth and I am going to put her through hell, and you get to watch her come up swinging every time I knock her on her ass. That’s just how I do things. How she reacts to the set of circumstances she is put through, may not be how you as the reader, or I as the author would react to that same situation. Everyone reacts differently to circumstances and how Magdalena responds to her challenges, is how I see her as a character and as a person.

I don’t write love stories: I write fast paced, knock you on your ass, make you sit on the edge of your seat wondering what happens next books. If you’re looking for cookie cutter romance, this isn’t for you. If you can’t handle the ride, un-buckle your seatbelt and get out of the roller-coaster car now. If not, you’ve been warned. If nothing outlined above bothers you, carry on and enjoy the ride!

    I recommend reading all her books in order that way it makes sense. Her imagination is just amazing! Up until now I enjoy reading every book she has written ❣️

    Liked the book. Of course you have to buy three other books to get Lucian’s and Lena’s story so it is kind of expensive in the end. Even more if you consider that this is a spin off of the fae chronicles. Still bought them all because I was so addicted to the fae chronicles.
  • Wow!!! What a book!!!

    By J.R.G.R.H.
    I loved every bit of this book, and I am so glad that Amelia Hutchins let us follow Lucian into his world. When we met him in The Fae Chronicles I was curious about him. Now, I can’t wait to hear about his journey, as well as Lena’s. This is one helluva story, and you will absolutely love it!!! Just be aware that it is dark and Lena goes through some stuff that a lot of people couldn’t make it through without being irrevocably changed. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t read her story because the up’s & down’s are what make it epic! Happy Reading!!!
  • Needs an editor

    Bought based on a tiktok recommendation and had high hopes. The wording and sentence structures just completely distract me from the actual story. Painful read.
  • Favorite books ever!

    Love this book
  • Great find

    By B.B.Lucas
    This is an amazing story extremely well written that leaves you reeling for more of Lucius and Lena. This was the book that made me discover my now favorite author Amelia Hutchins. I had previously bought this book on iBooks, but since I got the other ones in the series from Amazon, I just had to re-purchase it here too so I could have them complete series together.
  • She is amazing

    This is my 2nd or 3rd time re reading this series. It’s spelling binding jaw dropping, panty sizzling good. I couldn’t put it down, I laughed, I cried, I grew angry but ultimately I fell in love with Lucien and Lena. If you haven’t read this series you are seriously missing out.
  • Must read!
