Someone is kidnapping werewolves, and not just any wolves at that: every one is the daughter of an important clan leader. Desperate to find his daughter, Sebastian Arnou does the unthinkable: he goes to the Silver Circle of light magic users for aid. Their version of a police force is known as the War Mage Corps, and although they agree to help, few have much experience with Weres. The exception is disgraced, on-the-edge-of-being-canned war mage Lia de Croissets, whose mother happened to be a high ranking member of the important Were clan Lobizon.
Someone with a werewolf mother isn’t much trusted by the Corps, and a mage with a human father is equally suspect as far as the clans are concerned. But her knowledge of Were customs and her background in human magic make Lia unmistakably the best person for the job. Whether they will be enough to keep her alive is another matter.
Having Cyrus’ full attention was like being the only rabbit in the world in front of a pack of starving wolves.
The leader of the werewolf clans turns to the Silver Circle’s police force, named the War Mage Corps for help finding kidnapped female werewolves.
The Silver Circle is the only link to the Cassandra Palmer series in this story, as there was not much about Weres before… Because of this, first I didn’t want to read it, thinking it is easily skippable. But it turned out to be really interesting, and I’m glad I read it.
The main character is Lia, who works for the Corps, and narrates the story.
The story is a little fast and crowded, but the suspense is great, with twists and turns, some really fun scenes, and necessarily a superhot werewolf, Cyrus, with questionable allegiance.
Cyrus had taught me that it was possible to never stop being friends and yet to end up enemies.
