Publisher's Summary

From Steve McHugh, the bestselling author of The Hellequin Chronicles, comes a new urban fantasy series packed with mystery, action, and, above all, magic.
Layla Cassidy has always wanted a normal life, and the chance to put her father's brutal legacy behind her. And in her final year of university she's finally found it. Or so she thinks.
But when Layla accidentally activates an ancient scroll, she is bestowed with an incredible, inhuman power. She plunges into a dangerous new world, full of mythical creatures and menace - all while a group of fanatics will stop at nothing to turn her abilities to their cause.
To protect those she loves most, Layla must take control of her new powers...before they destroy her. All is not yet lost - there is a light shining, but Layla must survive long enough to see it.

A Glimmer of Hope

I like fantasy, witches, and wizards but even though the story itself was interesting, it was a bit too gruesome for me.

The best story in the world of Avalon yet!!!

The story setting and imagery really brought the characters onto the present. The look and feel of the world was more modern and the character introduction gave you a chance to meet new characters and re meet characters you thought you already in a new way.
I cannot wait for the next book in this series.

Continuing the ride

I loved the Hellequin series and this is a great spin off. There are a lot of returning characters who I loved - a smart mouthed fox being one - and some new ones who I am already attached to. I can’t wait for the next adventure.

Great intro to a new story line

I absolutely love this author, his previous series got me completely hooked and had such a fantastic narrator.

A glimmer of hope took me a little while to get into with a combination of both new and old characters it kept me interested and the second half of the book has made me eager for more.

I found the narrator a bit more wooden but by the end of the book I couldn’t imagine anyone else.

P.s What happened to Remie’s fowl mouth I think the most obscene thing he said was arse very un-Remie like
