Jade Calhoun was never fond of her empath abilities. Now she's discovered she has another gift she'd rather not unwrap - magic. But when her mentor, Bea, becomes gravely ill and insists Jade's the only one who can help, she's forced to embrace her witchy side.
It's too bad she spent a decade shunning the magical community and never learned to harness her powers. Because time's run out. A trapped spirit has revealed a clue to Jade's long-lost mother. The resident angel has gone rogue and disappeared with Jade's boyfriend, Kane. And if that wasn't enough, her ex appears to be possessed.
To save any of them, Jade will need to find a way to control her inner white witch - without succumbing to black magic. Otherwise, she'll lose everything - including her soul.

No, the premise of the book is good but I often found myself yelling at the radio because the main character started to bother me. In the book the main character, Jade, is trying to find her mother, save her loved ones and stop an all powerful demon. As she tries to do all this, I believe she looses focus on what the real problem is and spends most of her time being stubborn and not listening to anyone who is trying to help. She is so stuck in her ways that it ruins it for me. She doesn't ever listen to anyone.
Also, it has some mystery thrown in there to help to retain the reader. As the book goes on, the reader begins to figure stuff out but Jade just doesn't see things because of her stubbornness. It was very annoying that she didn't start to figure stuff out sooner. I know part of the book was her "finding herself" and learning "who she is" but come on, how long does that take!
I read the first one and it was okay.
Traci does a great job with all of her characters. I think Bea was my favorite. You really felt the characteristics of the character come through while she was speaking.
Yes, write this review.
I did not care for the book but I did like the narration. I would read something done by Traci again.
Probably not. I've listened to the first two books in this series and it's more about Jade having to embrace her witchy side than getting to know the characters. It just seemed to be one catastrophe after another where only Jade's witchy side can save the day and the other characters are just there so there's someone Jade can save. I liked the other main characters, but just not enough to continue with the series.
I don't know why she can't be a strong smart main character but she is still entertaining. I'm listening to this while I find a new series its OK for a light listen but its not as good as Kim harrison. or frost.
I really love Jade Calhoun and her friends especially Pyper she is awesome. This is the 2nd story in the Jade Calhoun series and its just as good as the first great characters wonderful story full of magic, love and mystery and this series just keeps getting better
I enjoyed this book, but Jade's habit of ignoring what's right in front of her does get frustrating. This series is about Jade finding herself, and sometimes her stubbornness gets in the way of that. The struggle to find her mom and rescue the people she loves kept me going. I needed to know that it was going to all work out. All in all, this was a good continuation of the first book in the series, and I was really happy to see the characters from the first book return. Looking forward to the next installment and seeing what kind of trouble Jade finds herself in this time!
