A prequel to the Hot Magic Series, this book starts with Jensen and his brother Remy, finding Charlemaine unconscious, in the woods, without memory or realization of her powers. The wizards from differing clans are not particularly friendly to each other, and in some cases, are overtly hostile to those not in their clan.
While Jensen is convinced Charlemaine has not been sent to the castle of the Assembly to cause difficulties. Unfortunately, not everyone is of the same belief. And when one of Charlemaine's own family members uses his wizardry and telepathic connection with her in a bid to obtain powers that would place him above all others: Charlemaine and Jensen are thrown into a battle for their lives.
A great starter taste to whet the appetite for the Hot Magic Series, the tone of the wizards and the partnership between Jensen and Charlemaine are something to look forward to. Their relationship offers the possibility of a happy for now, while there are underlying issues to be sorted out still. A solid effort that has me adding the series into my TBR pile.
I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
