She was born to save what he is sworn to destroy.
A lapsed Wiccan, Indira Simon doesn't believe in magic anymore. But when strange dreams of being sacrificed to an ancient Babylonian god have her waking up with real rope burns on her wrists, she's forced to acknowledge that she may have been too hasty in her rejection of the unknown. Then she meets mysterious and handsome Father Thomas. Emerging from the secrecy of an obscure Gnostic sect, he arrives with stories of a demon, a trio of warrior witches - and Indira's sacred calling.
Yet there's something even Tomas doesn't know, an inescapable truth that will force him to choose between saving the life of the woman he's come to love—and saving the world.

A decent narrator and a much better story plot.
Nothing written by Maggie Shayne and/or narrated by Megan Hayes.
Very annoying voice that came across as whiny and petulant. Reading pace was too slow.Frequent word mispronunciation.
Half the book was fluff. I skipped entire chapters due to boredom and still kept up with the very predictable plot.
At under $9 this audiobook is still not worth it.In retrospect, I would skip it.
I would recommend this book to someone that wanted a quick, brain not needed, read. The story was good but predictable.
I enjoyed the comparisons between the different religions and their "rituals".
Megan Hayes's performance was fine.
This is the first in a series. I planned on listening to all three, but I don't know if I will continue. Most likely, I will finish the series but not right away.
In some places of this book I found myself wishing they would just hurry up and move on and in others I was thinking, "That was fast." Some twists needed more setup others took too long to unwind.
I'm totally addicted to audio-books. I listen all day while at work, (lucky enough to have that sort of job), and working around the house.
This story would have been ok if it weren't for the heroine, Indira. She made the story totally unbearable for me. A few times her comments made me laugh, but for the most part I just wanted to smack her. To me she was just too bitchy and self absorbed.
