"Arthur has blown me away again. Her worlds are so complex and 'real.'...I highly recommend [her] books."
—USA Today

“A red hot new series that’s destined to become an urban fantasy favorite.”
—Rabid Reads

The clock is ticking as Emberly—a phoenix capable of taking human form—races to take revenge against the sadistic and mysterious Rinaldo. The elusive rebel leader threatens to keep killing until he is given all of the research about a plague-like virus derived from vampire blood. Forced to reach out to the Paranormal Investigations Team for help, Emberly and her partner, Jackson, must decide who to trust as they follow the trail of dead bodies. When classified information is leaked and their safe house is ambushed, Emberly’s suspicions are confirmed—someone at PIT has betrayed them.

A final battle looms and Emberly will need to command all her powers—or watch the world turn to ash....


Chapter 1
I raised my face to the sky and drew in the heat of the day. It ran through me like a river, a caress filled with warmth and sympathy, as if the sun were aware of my reason for being in this clearing out in the middle of nowhere.

And maybe it was. It had witnessed me performing this ceremony far too many times in the past.

I closed my eyes and ignored the tears trickling down my cheeks. Rory's death was once again my fault. If he hadn't been in Brooklyn with me, he'd still be alive.

And if he hadn't been there, that inner voice whispered, not only would it be you who was dead, but possibly Jackson and Sam as well.

I hated that inner voice, if only because all too often it was right.

Rory had died saving our asses, and I knew he wouldn't be angry about that. He'd always had something of a hero complex, and had often said that if he had to go before his allotted one hundred years were up, he'd rather do it saving someone he loved.

And he and I did love each other; hell, I couldn't physically survive without him, nor he without me. But we weren't in love, thanks to the curse that haunted all phoenixes-a curse that was said to have come from a witch after a phoenix lover had left her with little more than the ashes of broken promises and dreams.
