And all it cost you was a nice case of liver failure. Or the memory of your lover's name.' Magic is Allie Beckstom's blessing and curse.

But lost memories aren't the only things preying on Allie's thoughts. Her late father, a prominent businessman - and sorcerer - has somehow channeled himself into her mind. With the help of the Authority, a secret organization of magic users, she hopes to gain better control over her own abilities - and find a way to deal with her father ...show more
