Publisher's Summary

Something wicked is at work in Colorado's supernatural community. Vampires are being paralyzed or killed with poison...a weapon favored by witches. This offense threatens to break apart the already-fractured alliance between witches and the undead.
The state's cardinal vampire, Maven, summons boundary witch Allison "Lex" Luther to stop the killing before it ignites a war. Lex has barely started investigating when she gets another surprise: the biological father she's never met arrives on her doorstep. He has answers to all of Lex's questions about her bloodline, but getting those answers could mean betraying the life she's already built.
Then the next vampire is poisoned - and this time it's Maven herself. The new evil that hunts Lex is powerful and ruthless enough to stop the strongest supernatural creature in the state. In order to find such a killer, Lex will have to face down her own birthright and call on every ally - both living and dead.

Still a great read!

The most entertaining thing about this one, it is not about Charlie. Yes, her name is repeated throughout the book, but she is not in any danger. The next bonus, Lex find out her parents and there is evil in the shadows. My disappointment is the, "I am a monster syndrome” In situations where the protagonist finds out their parents were not the sterling members of the community, they feel guilty. They interpret their parents’ action as recriminations against themselves. Oh my god, I am evil, oh my god I am a monster. The only thing that has changed is they now know their blood line. That is needless filler and extremely unoriginal by the author.

Lily and Simon are great as always. I really enjoy how they make up their own minds versus following what the coven says. I really like Lily’s voice and personality. Their mother is ok too. I understand her restraints. There is real witch royalty introduced. I would like to see that expanded upon.

Why is it when lovers get into the struggle, I will be there to protect you, regardless if it kills you. Yep, Lex and Quin encounter a situation where she had to betray Quinn to keep herself safe. Again my WTF meter goes off doing the ensuring argument between them. After they make a promise not to do it again and you can hear the ominous music in the background.

All said and done, I enjoyed the book.

Fantastic Read!

This is the third book in the Boundary Magic Series and it didn't let me down. In this story something is attacking the Vampires in Colorado and Lex, Quinn and their friends try to find out who and why. While the story moves along Lex learns a lot about her background and the background of boundary magic. Throughout this series Lex has been dealing with the fact that she is a boundary witch and everything that involves and how it affects her life and in this book we see this to a greater extent. Loved seeing how her and Quinn's relationship has grown and how her friendship with Lily and Simon has also grown. It was a fast read from beginning to end and all around fantastic story. I listened to the audio book and wanted to say that Kate Rudd did a great job narrating it.
