"She told me my eyes 'looked like emeralds in a bottomless sea and she just wanted to drown in them.' I sensed she wanted to drown, period."
When six foot five, dreamy-eyed Kai Williams looks into your eyes, he'll sense your soul's darkest desires. That's a serious liability as far as he's concerned. When he meets Cassandra Evans, he'll be faced with a choice - surrender his heart to love for once in his life or fall prey to the evil his old pal Cam Tyson has introduced to him, the seductively demonic Angela Myers. Angela wants him. Will her malevolent, evil magic be strong enough to overpower him or will he embrace his own incredible powers and defeat her, finding true love?
The third book in the Wicked series is a riveting and passionately charged fantasy read. As far as Kai Williams is concerned, his ability to sense souls’ darkest desires is a serious liability. Now he has a choice surrender his heart to love or fall prey to the evil Angela. Will he find true love by embracing his incredible powers to defeat Angela.
The plot is steady to fast paced and flows smoothly from one intriguing scene to the next keeping readers fascinated with suspense, drama, and romance. The author brings her story to life to with well written descriptions and details that inspire vivid images and capture the imagination. The characters are strong and compelling grabbing the reader’s attention and arousing lots of delightful curiosity throughout the story.
This book follows Kai and Cassie as they join the battle against evil with the wicked Angela once again causing mayhem. Kai is a multi layered character that transforms for the better and I must say he takes over the story, while Cassie is not as attention grabbing, but then it’s hard to compete with Cherie. The beloved characters Kayden, Cam and Cherie are back as well ensuring that the story continues to charm the readers and draw them deeper into this fantastical world of “Galaxy Dancers”
Calinda brings everything together in a complex and challenging world that has multiple parallel plots that add depth and layers to the story that really keep the reader engaged in the drama and energy of the story as it unfolds. The unique characters and world has many facets and refreshingly different elements that the reader is transported into another reality as they follow along making it easy to picture every event and scene. I was totally captivated by the story from the very beginning and unfortunately I have to wait to read the next one, oh well… I will do so with impatience. Oh and I guess I should let you know, I highly recommend reading the series in order for better understanding of this complicated and enchanting world.

About Calinda B:
(Off author’s site)
Calinda B was told early on that she should be a writer. She heard frequent praise for her writing, as well as her sense of humor. Scoffing at such admonitions and praise, she went on to pursue her life of adventure, chock full of the things that make up a well-rounded adventurous life: music (yup, she was a singer in a rock and roll band), dance (even performed hip hop in Russia), rock climbing (ever hung from a rock wall a few stories up? Yikes!), fire walking (taught high-ranking Moscow fire officials how to walk the coals), kayaking, scuba diving (she's in love with sharks), travel, and falling in love again and again.
