A psychopathic wizard. An immortal mage. An epic battle of wills.

Nikolai doesn't want much out of life: sex, immortality, and the power to disembowel anyone who crosses him. But with dark magic forbidden, his only option is Medea-a mage so deadly even the Enforcers give her a wide berth. Despite dire warnings that her apprentices don't survive, Nikolai won't stop until she agrees to train him. After all, he's a killer himself.

Barbaric and brutal, the training is a far cry from what Nikolai expects. When a mysterious illness strikes Nikolai down, he suspects he's found the secret to Medea's longevity. He resolves to find out what happened to her previous apprentices. If he can locate the source of her power, he can turn it against her.

Medea swore off training dark wizards-none of them take the craft seriously and the ungrateful bastards always try to kill her. This one definitely seems the backstabbing type, but magic is dying out and she hasn't felt such magical strength in centuries. If she can control the boy, show him that magic is more than curses and necromancy, he might obtain the power he desires. If not, well . . .

What's one more dead apprentice?

If you enjoy dark fantasy with quirky, morally grey characters and humorous banter (but NO ROMANCE), this is the book for you!

Review quote

What advanced readers have had to say:

"The ending was amazing! Medea is surprisingly human for an all powerful magi. Nik is manipulative and willful and arrogant, and I was surprised how much that endeared him to me."

"Excellent book! I found myself reading at work when I technically shouldn't have been. I didn't even realize how quickly I was reading until I reached the end."

"Nikolai was maddening, in the best way!"

"Medea is a complicated character and fascinating. Honest, educated and with morals yet apparently clueless to relationships and emotions, especially those of others. This was a great read and anyone who loves magic being thrown about, not afraid of a little bit of foul language would love it."

"The ending is great. It left me on the edge of my seat for more! I am extremely excited to start the next book."

"Totally and utterly satisfying!"
