This is the first part of the Damask Circle and I love it. It's a paranormal romance series and it's really well done. The world is filled shapeshifters, vampires and magic users but not the typical stuff that the market is flooded with right now. The Damask Circle is a group that travels throughout the world trying to stop evil magic users/creatures from killing innocent people. It is a blend of the unknown and mystery which draws you in with believable cast of characters.
Circle of Fire begins with Madeline Smith, a woman who is battling the agoraphobia that is slowly closing her life into a box. Until a "ghost" appears to her and begs her for help. At first she refuses to believe in the spirit, it feels too real and tries to take her out of her comfort zone but then the ghost tells her that her beloved nephew may go missing and be the next body found if she does nothing. All too soon it's proven that it was true and she was plunged into an adventure that she wasn't sure she was ready for.
Heading off to save the "ghost" after promising her sister that she would bring home her nephew. However the ghost is a real flesh and blood man who sets her pulse to racing and drives her mad between hormones and anger. In helping to save her nephew Madeline also learns how to save herself and come to terms with her abilities.
This book is available at the end of the month and I greatly recommend it to everyone who enjoys the paranormal romance genre! For me one of the bonus perks is that the characters were in their 20's and 30's so for me that made it easier for me to relate to them.
Definitely a quick and easy pick me up!
