Publication Date: February 9, 2021

Genre: A five book urban fantasy/paranormal romance

Author: Sawyer Bennett

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars



An intriguing look at a new world that includes Fae and Gods and a grouchy anti-hero.

In a world where Gods play games and humans are mere pawns, Finlay discovers there is more to her world than just living as a fraile mortal. Growing up believing she was crazy, seeing the unbelievable, in fact she’s surrounded by Fae, daemons and other creatures that walk not only earth, but other realms beyond this world.

As happy as she is to discover she’s not mad, it’s overwhelming to discover she possesses powers that no one seems to understand, much less the grumpy pain in the a** Carrick who might also be something else, but is unwilling to share more of himself.

Pompous, conceited and rich, Carrick holds all of the power in their odd dynamic and while he desires to know everything about his new toy he also snears at her very existence. It’s unfortunate that he needs her to help save his own because he’d rather just stay away.

Finlay needs his help in her business life and in this new world she’s just discovering. The more she learns the more she realizes that she can’t walk it without knowledge and unfortunately Carrick seems to know it. If he doesn’t get her killed first she may get the answers she seeks, so as much as she’d like to walk away everytime he treats her less than the bottom of his shoe, she may get what she needs from the egotistical jerk.

This is book 1 in a 5 book series.


I always knew I was different.

From a young age, my mind has been plagued with things only I could see. Some hauntingly beautiful, others completely terrifying. Never knowing if these visions were real or just hallucinations, I learned how to lock them down and ignore them. I learned to take solace in the relative anonymity of city life and find peace in the rainy days my city of Seattle is known for.

But just when I think my life is getting on track and my dreams are achievable, a moment of weakness causes me to learn a hard and fast lesson.

My entire existence has been a lie.

Now I’m faced with a new reality that’s as implausible as it is fantastical. Filled with realms and veils, light and dark, fae and daemons, gods and angels—things I don’t understand but am forced to acknowledge. It doesn’t help that the man teaching me about my unique gifts is the gorgeously handsome Carrick Byrne, one of Seattle’s richest and most powerful men. He intimidates, annoys, and intrigues me all at the same time. I don’t trust him and yet there’s no one else to help me.

No longer certain who to put my faith in, what to believe, or how I fit into it all, one revelation is clear…

The world as I know it will never be the same again.
