After surviving a round-trip to hell, Piper figures she can survive anything. After all, she just lived through the devastating loss of her Consul apprenticeship and a torturous stint at boarding school. How much worse could it get?
Well, she wasn’t expecting a group of crazy radicals to burn her home to the ground and take her prisoner.
The Gaians, a.k.a. the crazy radicals, plan to rid Earth of daemons and they need Piper’s help. In exchange for her cooperation, they promise her the answer to all her problems: magic. With her own magic, she could reclaim her apprenticeship, the only future she’s ever wanted. But her magic comes at price — it could kill her.
With the life she’s always known crumbling around her and her future slipping from her grasp, she needs Ash’s help one more time. But the greatest danger of all lies within her, and no matter what she does, she may lose everything — including him

This book was really good, I couldn’t put it down! But I have to admit that the second book is still my favorite so far.
Obviously you couldn’t expect that Piper her life would turn back to ‘normal’ after reading the first two books so it was only a matter of time before something bad would happen again.
Piper’s mom is kinda messed up, some of her ideas were pretty good but (spoiler alert?) then you let people drug your daughter to release her magic against her will? And I thought her father was a bad guy, damn. But thank god two sexy deamons show up to save her life.
There was more Lyre in this book than the second one so that is always a good thing, you can never have enough Lyre in these books. And Ash is amazing, like always, you just can’t hate that guy.
That cliffhanger ending though! I can’t wait to read the fourth book.
