Cat-shifter Trinity Morrigan-Caine has discovered a demon is killing supernaturals. Magically challenged, she has every intention of letting handsome Alpha werewolf Gordon Barnes handle it. But after a dying vampire gifts Trinity a mystical amulet, she is drawn into the fray as the legendary Guardian of Bastet, a warrior born when the need arises.
Though Trinity initially rejects the role, she warms to the idea when Gordon agrees to train her—and their passion for each other grows as he teaches her to embrace her animal instincts.
As she begins to accept her destiny and believe in her growing powers, Trinity realizes the danger is even closer to home than she ever imagined—and she and Gordon are going to have to face the demon in a fight to the death...
So, that's the synopsis . I'm going to be very honest here and admit that I did not like , or even commit myself to the story line until way past the point of no return.
The lead in this book, a half- breed shifter, witch was not impressive to me on many levels of choices she made from dating, to family, well just about everything. However I did feel she had potential. Almost as if Trinity could aspire to be Mercy Thompson from Patricia Briggs series .
They had my at Egyptian . I've poured over that Mythology with a reverence that even a tilt in that direction and I'm game.
As I said before, the beginning was slow, the "bad guys " were pretty obvious . I don't mind a fun recreational read. This book would have been that until everything got rushed towards the end. Even though I knew I was reading the last page it just didn't feel complete to me. If a second book comes out I will read it, my dedication for "series" is close to OCD . This first attempt at a paranormal / romance/ coming of age book didn't "WOW" me. However there was fun to be had. Simple as that. Take a break from life and give this book a shot.

Her life has taken her from the trials and tribulations of working as an administrative assistant at various companies, back to college as an adult student, and then into the adventurous world of motherhood.
Jacqueline began writing seriously in 2007 after attempting NaNoWriMo for the first time. It was the first time she had disciplined herself to finish a novel.

Jacqueline attended their aspiring authors workshops and met with many talented writers who inspired her to continue writing.

Add in a new puppy, two furry feline children and fish and you have the craziness that is the Battisti household.
