Juliet Carpenter thought of the coven as family, but when she falls for a man who betrays them all, she's left alone and desperately searching for a reason why. Caleb Leigh has spent the past year in hiding, unable to escape his demons. When Juliet finds him again, her need for vengeance clashes with the hunger still burning between them.

It's a fight born from the embers of a half-forgotten attraction and the wounds of a past too raw to ignore. With enemies circling and secrets threatening to consume them, Caleb has no choice but to fulfill a promise made long ago--protect her, save her. Even if it costs him his blood, his body . . . and what's left of his mind.

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

Loved this instalment! What I find so intriguing with this series is all the bed hopping from The Church to the Witch’s side of the fence.

Caleb Leigh, Jessie’s brother, I am still unsure of his rather evil in appearance behavior in ‘Blood Of The Wicked’. I mean the dude appeared to want to harm his I am unsure if he is this dark , evil witch, or was there a plan that had some goodness in the outcome from all this nasty ritual killing.

So much more comes to light, but is it going towards redeeming Caleb, in my eyes....I am still not sure. I know he loves his sister, but there was some pretty horrific rituals going on in book #1.

Juliet Carpenter and Caleb have history. It is history that both are fighting to forget.

Juliet becomes the centre of attention for the ...... well, are they bad guys or good guys or a combination.

Caleb knows how to get his smexi on, but Silas is still my fave.

This book was very exciting , boy, did some dirt get turned over. Lordy there are some corrupt people in authority, working behind the scenes.

Juliet has a good heart. his heart too blackened by what he has had to do? The promises he has had to make. Keep.

It took me a while to click , but there was a rather interesting thing with Caleb.

Jonas Stone, I just love his loyalty. He is one of those that makes up his own mind who to stay more loyal to. He is very intelligent and keeps in contact with those who have jumped ship. He knows there is some shit being flung about. He also knows and remembers who his friends are, no matter what side of the fence they sit on.

I got told by somebody to watch out for Simon.

.......Enter Simon.

The other man didn’t wait for an introduction. He slid into one of two chairs arrayed in front of Parker’s borrowed desk, kicking one ankle up over his knee in easy comfort. “I’m Simon Wells,” he offered, tipping an imaginary hat. His brown hair was longer, the same shade as the coffee-coloured desk between them. His eyes twinkled at her, an odd mix of green and brown, and his lips curved into an engaging smile that she didn’t return.

Flirt. She knew the type.

Simon Wells lounged in the frame, fingertips caught loosely on the upper ledge and muscles idly bulging. His blue tank top sported a vee of sweat, his hair damp against his forehead. Work-out pants slung low on his hips, button-down legs open at the bottom to fall over trashed sneakers.

The pose showed off every mouthwatering muscle in his arms and shoulders, and the smile shaping his mouth could only be called easy. Indolent.

This book is very gritty and tough on its characters. We go back into the bowels of Old Seattle. New Seattle can make you almost forget that the world has changed. There is a facade of normality. The witches and missionaries know what is lurking under this facade.

Power breeds evil.

I can’t wait to read more about Simon. He gets book # 4, Sacrifice The Wicked.



  1. I think I have a book or two from thus series but I haven't read any (surprise surprise!)
