Recruited by a secret paranormal organization to hunt demons, Jack Harris never guessed the revenge he sought for his partner's death would be this complicated. Jack's worldview is black-and-white—until he is ordered to follow Mersey Bane, a beautiful woman who is also a familiar with shape-shifting abilities. Mersey belongs to the Cadre—a peaceful hermetic order that captures and studies Otherworldly Entities—which is at odds with Jack's organization.

As Jack delves deeper into the inner workings of the Cadre, he finds himself drawn to Mersey like a moth to a flame.

She may challenge all his beliefs, but she brings color and passion to his world. Jack doesn't know whether what he feels for Mersey is love or lust. But if he doesn't figure it out soon, they may become the hunted instead of the hunters.

I was lucky enough to win this wonderful book in a contest... and I'm so glad that I did! This book was fantastic, and delved into so many excellent otherworldly things, that I wish there was going to be another Mersey and Jack story. Although, this is the first book in the Dark Enchanments series, which spans four books by four different authors.

This was a fantastic start into the mysterious world of the Cadre. And once you get to the end of the book, you realise just how perfect this title is. Perfect and clever.

Both Mersey and Jack (gotta love a hero called Jack! I know I do) were very likeable characters that learn a lot about themselves and each other throughout the story. While leading the reader further into this intriguing world of demons, faeries and so much more that I know we'll meet along the way...

Anyway, as you can tell I really, really, really enjoyed this book and will definitely be checking out the next books. Michele's such a great writer. I've read several of her books already, and can't wait to read more. Very cool!

Check this book out! I'm really getting into these Nocturnes now. :D

I have a Nocturne and a paranormal Blaze sitting in my pile of to-be-reads...but they gotta wait until I finish writing this book first!
