Olivia Ann Greyson is a Charmer, a Dhampir with the power to lure the supernatural world’s most dangerous of creatures – and she’s in an impossible situation. She must leave behind Caleb Wolfe, the strong, protective vampire she has fallen madly in love with, in order to learn how to protect herself from the vampires, shifters and demons that will be drawn to her for the rest of her life.

Human Guardian, Alec Lambert, has been assigned to see to Olivia’s training by the organization he belongs to, which is known simply as The Brethren. He takes Olivia to the group’s stronghold in the mountainous regions of Alberta, Canada, where she discovers the answers to her family’s painful past and the extent to which those hunting her will go to capture her. But she also uncovers many secrets and even more questions about this mysterious group she has trusted to protect her – secrets that will have her fighting to get back to the man she left behind…but will it be too late?

MY THOUGHTS:

In this second installment of The Charmed series, we pick up where we left off in the first book. Olivia decides it best to know exactly how to control her new powers and wants to prove to both herself and everyone else that has doubts, that Caleb loves her not for her Charmer abilities but because of her. She throws herself into training her training and becomes closer to her guardians there to protect her. She is quickly advised to keep a little distance between her and the other guardians because her Charmer gifts make other people drawn to her. Not just the men but women. (Not necessarily in a sexual way with the women.) She also is given the gift of knowing more about her parents and their past. It turns out that someone close to her is actually related to her and she that makes all the difference from feeling completely alone with not family to having something to live for.

There are some points in the story that had me cringing because of what she was put through. Oh and can I say, I think she should be with Alec. The way he protects her any way he can and how guilty he feels when he wasn’t there to protect her from an incident that no women should ever have to encounter. He clearly feels strongly towards Olivia. I guess in the end it all worked out but I can still dream!

This second installment upped the ante and left me wanting to re-read the book all over again. I can’t wait to see what the third book in this series has in store for me!

RATING:


I knew the second book was going to be good but not this good!

There are some good scenes in here but there is a good amount of focus on the story. Now her reaction to vampire blood was rather spicy though. ;)
