There are monsters in the city. And one of them is her
Ava Kalle's empty soul devours magic. And her hunger is deadly. She's sharp, quick and can live in shadow, making her work as a spy for the Mages a natural choice. She lives on the fringes of society and likes it that way.
When the man she loves takes another woman for his mate, the darkness in her heart unravels and she'll do anything to get him back. She makes a dangerous deal with a fire elemental, Heyerdar, who has a vested interest in agreeing: together they'll use forbidden magic, harnessing their sexual energy to drive the couple apart.
But soon their pact pushes them both into a dark sexual obsession. One that Ava may not be able to control
Paranormal, fantasy, mystery, erotic romance-Knox (Synthetic Dreams) attempts to cram something from every genre into a novel that's really just about the sex. Ava Kalle, though called a "thief," is really a vampire by another name, sucking vitality from human prey. Ava has never completely emptied a victim, but as the "eyes and ears" of the empire's Highest Mage, Davin Reist, she inspects bodies left by other, less scrupulous thieves and tries to track down the culprits. In her private life, Ava is virginal and frustrated, unable to divert Reist's attention from Fallon Braith, the captain of the guard's former mistress. As a wielder of elemental magic, the captain, Nahum Heyerdar, naturally dislikes the book-learned mages. Ava offers to trade her virginity for Heyerdar's help in breaking up mage and mistress. Juggling mystery solving, world-building, and sexual jousting, Knox doesn't follow through completely on any one of her promising ideas. (Dec.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
