Publisher's Summary

Two-hundred-year-old Daegan Blackwell is one of the last remaining Empowered, an ancient magical race. Daegan's duty is to lead and protect his remaining Brethren in the coming war foretold by prophecy. The last thing he expects is to meet the one woman who will either save or destroy him - his destined mate.
Fiercely independent Realtor Olivia Farrell believes darkly handsome Daegan is simply a prospective client. Until she's attacked by a man with a strange aura - and Daegan fights him off, taking away her pain with just his touch. At first, Olivia refuses to believe she's part of a magical race; yet mounting evidence and her powerful chemistry with Daegan are too strong to deny.
But as Daegan's partner, Olivia becomes a target in the battle between good and evil that threatens her life, as well as the very existence of the Empowered. And the only one who can save her is the man claiming to be her destiny....

A New Take on The Paranormal

I was thoroughly surprised with this book. I really enjoyed the new take on a paranormal species. I can hardly wait for the second book in this series. Some things remain the same though. Finding your mate and not being able to resist the mating call. However, the rest of the story was very entertaining. There is much still to be discovered in this series, I like the way the author dosen't let on about all the abilities the empowered have so a few surprises are in store. Not to mention the abilities the bad guys possess. All in all a very entertaining read. Not boring in the least.

I had never listened to anything by Ms. Simon before. I must say she did more than a credible job. She was very easy to listen to and her male voices were well done.

Has the next book been released yet? :-)

I really enjoyed this book because it provided a new paranormal race with a good plot. Olivia was not a totally weak female lead, she had her doubts and suspicions as anyone would. Dageon was okay as the male lead. The build up and setting were nicely done. I suppose if I were to wish for something it would have been a deeper level of psychic gifts with just a bit more action. The intimate encounter for the lead characters had me saying I can't wait until they actually "hookup". When they finally got around to it, it was good but could have been a bit better. ????
