A Blood War prophesy. A darkness growing inside her. Can she find the seven powers before the trial grounds are lost forever? The Oracle’s powers need a new vessel and everyone wants the talisman that will give it to them instead of the prophesied successor. In a race against time, Crystal must train herself to survive the trial grounds deep within the Underrealm and find the seven powers to obtain the talisman before anyone else; or it won’t be just her soul at risk, but the whole supernatural realm as she knew it. The war between good and evil rests in the hands of a novice all while she battles her inner demons confused between following her heart or her mind, saving herself or everyone else. If you like hidden magical realms, fresh new takes on vampire lore, and heartfelt journeys of self-discovery, then you’ll love Stevie McCoy’s spellbinding coming-of-age tale.

4 out of 5 (very good)

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

This is quite the world SM McCoy has created for us. Sometime's I felt as lost as Crystal did at the beginning of this story. To suddenly find yourself in a place you know nothing about, expected to do things you don't know how to do, all the while trying to solve a mystery is very daunting.

I like how the author expressed Crystal's hesitancy in the world she now found herself in. The cast of characters was really well done. I enjoyed not know if any one character was friend or foe. Never really knew who to trust. The story flowed well and was very action-packed, although at times I found there was too much going on and got a little lost.

All in all, this is a story that I would recommend to someone who is a paranormal lover. Even though the ending isn't really an ending, it was a fulfilling story.

Stevie Marie is the author of young adult paranormal fantasy and the Divine Series. Born within the apex of another universe, where magic flows like leaky faucets, and forged from the fires of the Underrealm she dug her way to Earth and reluctantly participates in human society, secretly returning to her home world to relay the stories of her monsters, and the troubled love of her people. When she isn’t writing she’s crafting clothing in her sewing room, cuddling her significant-other creature, or pretending to adult by managing a portfolio of properties for an accounting business in the rainy city of Seattle, Washington.
