Publisher's Summary

If you can't stand the heat...
When New York City unveils a program to roast supernaturals, I wonder if I should be sweating.
The bloodthirsty Arnaud thinks so, and he's insisting that our survival depends on a wizard-vampire alliance. Never mind his history of wanting me dead. Or undead.
Meanwhile, the mayor wants me on his team - an offer that's only slightly less unnerving given our recent clash. So who's really behind the purge? City Hall? The werewolves? Or is it the brainchild of the fae, whose newest advisor to the mayor slipped from my bed and life four months ago?
I'm getting the cold feeling someone's trying to manipulate the program, and me, to set off a larger war, one that could explode through the city.
One thing's for sure. If I don't get my head straight and my magic on, it's going to be a hell of a summer.

War in the city - great story!

Croft wants to know what happened to his mother and the order is not producing the information fast enough or they might not do it at all. In performing a ritual, he opens a back door to the in between and receives a mild rebuke.

Croft is still jittery mayor Budge, the mayor and Penny, his wife and head of the werewolves. If she wakes up, he and Vega could be in deep shit. While she is in a coma, Croft is Budge’s bitch.

At the college, Snodgrass is still out for Croft to be fired. With only 6 students, that is a possibility.

Threats and betrayal from all sides; vampires, fae, wolves i humans, and Croft is the only one without a game card. He has no support from the wizard council and he still hurting from Caroline’s rejection.

Croft bounces from one foe to another. He is used as a pawn in a complex dance to save the city by eradicating the abnormals. As a pawn, he is championed as a hero and the next move he is sacrificed as the traitor.

Time and time again Croft uses his magic and other resources only to be forced to relay on the most elementary lessons he learned. Force into an alliance with Arnaud, he is imprisoned and betrayed to be used against his city.

Croft is without his sidekick Vega. She feels he has been disloyal through his alliance with Arnaud. Caroline has become more fae and with that more distance and secretive. Where can he go? Lady Bastet’s suggestion was to “Trust in the one your heart trust the least” or was that “Trust in the one you trust the least” one of those will save Croft. The other will damn him.

All his efforts do not evade a war. Now his only choice is to live through it and to mitigate the harm.

Now who killed his mother? He is the son of what daddy?

Most enjoyable. Had me glued to the book until the end. Brad Magnarella is a good writer. James Patrick Cronin narrated/performed wonderfully. I like the protagonist. He tries very hard to help and have to deal with obstacles and nasty people around him. The supernatural are also dangerous and it is difficult to trust anybody. A very very good plot and the ending was fantastic. I am looking forward to the next book in the series where Prof Croft has to find the death Mage who is the killer of his mother.
