I found this book to be pretty interesting. I've always enjoyed any story that has to do with magic. The author did a great job of creating a couple who has a spirit guide like type living inside them. I enjoyed watching the internal debates. I often argue with myself but it doesn't usually argue back. The way the Others' were able to take control of the body was an interesting one. The sex was great, the emotions strong, and the magic thick and intriguing. Overall, I found the story to be a good romance and a book worth my time to read.
Conleth "Cole" Douglas, warlock and vessel, needs a miracle. A destructive force has taken hold of his town and it will take more than just he and his magical Other, Cole, to eradicate the Evil. When an attempt to open his lover, Emterra, to their shared destiny fails, Conleth and Cole take extreme measures to stop the rising darkness. Their only option: take it, and themselves, into another realm.
Emterra "Irene" Azzurra, untapped witch and vessel, has given up on finding her own happy-ever-after. Devastated by the loss of her one and only love she becomes disinterested and remote, closed off from a life without Conleth. Even her job as the mayor of the dying town of Douglasville, MO, fails to sustain her, until she gets a blast from the past...
He's back, alive and whole, but he didn't come alone. The evil they'd hoped to contain in a distant realm has returned with him and is out to finish the job it started. There can be no failure this time, the now middle-aged, Emterra must accept her Other or doom the town to an agonizing death.
Skeptical of his sudden homecoming, Emterra is afraid to hope that his return could be true. She balks at the idea of opening her heart to him again. Especially when he looks like the same young Goth from ten years ago and tries to convince her she's sharing skin with a magical being.
Can Conleth prove his claims of magic and the Others to be true? Can Emterra allow herself to believe in love and his wild claims? Or will the returning Evil finally swallow this town and all its inhabitants into the deepest realms of hell.
