I really enjoyed this witch and I’m typically not a witch fan. I also liked the traits, abilities, and weaknesses that Heaton gave to her flavor of witches. Lealandra is approaching her ascension. This is not something that all witches will experience. The witches that are marked for ascension do not necessarily make it through the process. It is a very dangerous transition that a witch may go through. The process requires the covens magical assistance and also the help of the ascending witch’s Counter-Balance. Lealandra finds herself with a tiny problem, her ascension is bearing down on her and will happen at any moment, her Counter-Balance has been killed and she feels that she can no longer trust her coven.

While hanging at a pub Taig has found himself in the best place he ever thought to be. His ex-lover has thrown herself into his arms in an attempt to hide from some demons that have been pursuing her. Taig had never thought to see her again. She had left him six years prior for her coven. Witches don’t like demons, half breeds are not. Taig doesn’t like his demon half either. He is constantly at odds with that part of himself. His demon half makes him feel worthless and a bit self-loathing. Taig is one damaged man, a deliciously damaged half demon man.

Lealandra needs Taig’s help. She knows that he can protect her from the evil that is after her. Taig is more than capable of handling the situation that Lealandra has found herself in. The problem is their feeling for each other and all of the emotions that are between them. These two are a must read hot mess.

I was also very impressed with the ending climatic fight scene. Heaton gave her witches that are fighting with magical powers a very vicious imagery. I had this whole magical Matrix witch fight sequence playing out in my head. They were walking on air and falling from the sky. It was very intense!

I can’t wait for the next book in this trilogy. I guessing by the way Ascension ended readers will get more Taig and Lealandra. Other people were not introduced in a set up for a future couple in the next book. I don’t want to give an ending spoiler away, but it seemed to me that Taig and Lealandra have more journeys and trails that they will face together. I have NO PROBLEMS reading more Taig and Lealandra. They are an awesome couple, as a couple they make sense and really are two halves that make a whole. Their abilities and powers not only complement each other’s, but they feed and boost each other. They are also extremely hot together. The sex scenes in this book will leave you looking for a cold shower or a hot man.
