A war is brewing…
Heartbroken and lost, Sadie left her family when she was only sixteen to fight evil. Years of searching out and destroying the vermin of the supernatural world have left her ruthless and jaded, and powerful.
Sadie’s success has made her a target, and a series of cryptic warnings leaves her questioning what is being asked of her. But nothing in her past has prepared her for the obstacles she now faces in trying to rid the world of a resurrected evil that no one saw coming.
She finally comes home for the chance to re-discover her first love, Aiden. Does she have the power to restore Aiden’s memories and hold on to her love for him, while battling for humanity—and her life?
Aiden Rivers and Sadie Tabors are back! But they were no longer the same Aiden and Sadie I have known from the White Aura Series. If I prefered Livvy in the first series, I love Sadie now even more.
In the final book of the White Aura series, Aiden’s memories were erased and this hurt Sadie a whole lot. After Livvy and Scott survived the Crimson Calamitous, they revived their relationship, but Sadie was left heartbroken and became a loner.
In this new book, Sadie ran away to find herself and to find purpose with her life. Straight outta Orlando were coven of vampires and evil creatures haunting and killing innocents. She fought them all, mastered the art of combat and sorcery. I loved how she battled with the supernaturals. The way she engaged them, the way she manipulated them into talking, the way she put traces on them for easy tracking and possible accomplices.
Until word spread about the most powerful and kick@ss sorceress and Sadie became a legend. Until her family found her. Until a prophesy was learned about a dark sorceress who would go head to head with the most evil sorcerer ever resurrected.
Someone from her past came back to her life. Oh what a joy it was seeing Aiden again. If I liked Aiden in the WA Series, I think I loved him even more in this new book. He was kind of funny and was now more attuned to his feelings, which helped him with his missing memories. Sadie and Aiden together were a pleasure to see. It was a delight to see Sadie getting awkward around him and then go badass when the evil magical faes appeared.
There are a lot of things to be happy about in this book. I should stop now before I majorly spoiled the story. Scornful Sadie is my latest favorite and I wouldn’t get tired reading about her. This is an excellent first book, the wonderful descriptions, aggressive yet impressive characters and magical storyline will totally suck you in. Trust me when I say, this is a must read! Hermione Granger got nothing on Sadie.
I have read most of Felicia Tatum’s books and I loved all of them. Felicia is the next Kami Garcia (Beautiful Creatures) in my opinion. I highly recommend this book for everyone and anyone who appreciates great reads. I can’t wait for the sequels!
