A month ago, seventeen-year-old Jackie was certain she was human and that supernatural creatures didn't exist. So when she discovered she was a shapeshifter and that her narrow world view needed to broaden to include vampires, werewolves, the fae and many other magical creatures, she was faced with two choices: have a full-out meltdown, or embrace her abilities and run with them.

Teaming up with three other young shifters, Jackie found a peace within herself she’d thought would never be possible. Now Garrett, her vampire trainer, was her lifemate and her team was ready to defend the magical community from those who chose to ignore the laws set in place to protect the weaker members of their world.

Unfortunately, because of her unusually strong magical abilities, Jackie caught the interest of a Fae Lord, a creature so powerful he can manipulate magic with just a thought. Now Jackie and Garrett are on their way into the realm of Faerie to celebrate the Midsummer Solstice with their allies—in more danger than they can possibly imagine.
