Synopses & Reviews
The first entry in MacNaughton’s (Conspiracy of Angels) new urban fantasy series features sorcery magic nearly indestructible classic cars and characters who run the gamut from faintly noir to slightly horrific. When a man named Greyson finds his way to Dru Jasper’s crystal shop in present day Colorado looking for some last ditch help with his nightmares investigating the cause of those bad dreams leads Dru and her friends Opal and Rane into a race to stop the book’s villains from using a magical scroll to bring forth the apocalypse. Dru is trapped between needing Greyson’s help to stop it and keeping him away for fear that he’ll fulfill the prophecy of doom. The quest to save the world is tinged with romance and takes some predictable turns along with the odd unexpected twist. The story relies heavily on fast paced car chases and adventure. MacNaughton has created a strong foundation for a fascinating series where anything is possible and everything has a cost. Agent: Kristin Nelson Nelson Literary.

Magic is real. A handful of sorcerers wield arcane power against demons and the forces of darkness. These protectors of the powerless are the best magic-users in the world. Unfortunately, Dru isn't one of them. She's got magical potential. She uses crystals to see enchantments, and she can research practically anything in the library in the back of her little store, sandwiched between a pawnshop and a 24-hour liquor mart. She sells enough crystals, incense, and magic charms to scrape by.
Everything changes the day a handsome mechanic pulls up in a possessed black muscle car, his eyes glowing red. Just being near Greyson raises Dru's magical powers to dizzying heights. But he's been cursed to transform into a demonic creature that could bring about a fiery doomsday. There's only one chance to break Greyson's curse--and it's about to fall into Dru's inexperienced hands. . . .
