I love this one and I'm looking forward to reading the next three in the series! Five Immortal brothers who fight to keep the balance between light and dark magic and our first one Adrian meets his match in Amber, a delightful witch in distress. I find dragons with colds adorable! An enjoyable read from beginning to end!

I read this book after reading the second one. This one was definitely better than the second. I have ordered the series and hope the second was just a fluke. I do like Jennfier Ashley. The story was captivating and the love story was very touching, though the fight scenes between the demon were a bit unblievable. The author kept letting the demon get away easily, I guess to carry the story on, but they did not make the demon powerful enough for it to keep escaping and some of the scenes did not flow especially when you read how powerful the immortal was. The ending was a little anti-climatic.

Great easy read with interesting storyline and fantastic characters. If you like Kenyon and Feehan, you'll like Ashley. Worth the read.

This is a great book. So much so that I went out and bought The Awakening. Now I'm looking for the other two.

Wow, if you can get through the first couple of chapters, it picks up and is very interesting reading. I can't wait to read the next book!

This one kept me guessing. I love books that I can't figure out and keep me on my toes. I have the rest of the series and will post them as I finish them.

I just finished the Calling and it kept me wanting more- I'm now heading for the next book in this series. Interesting the way the characters are presented- I get to know them intimately and feel apart of the family. Jennifer Ashley is new to me and I will now look for her books. You will enjoy this one.

I don't know why I let this book stay on my shelf for so long. It was great, couldn't put it down. This is the first book I've read from Jennifer Ashley and it kept me turning pages.

I haven't read much with witches the like but this was a quick enjoyable read. I want to say it was some what intricate fluff. IF that makes any sense.

Horrible! I usually love Jennifer Ashley and have read the entire MacKenzie series but this is just awful. Couldn't even finish. This book does not have the plot, the characters, or the great writing that we've come to expect from Jennifer Ashely. If I didn't see the copyright, I would think these books were by different authors. Really awful. I like paranormal romance but this is just not my cuppa. If you are looking at this book b/c you like Jennifer Ashely, not just for paranormal, save your credit. You will be so disappointed!

A white witch is murdered by a demon who is trying to take over the world. The sister (another white witch) is being attacked by the demon when an Immortal comes in to 'save the day'.

Not your every day good vs evil....lots of twists and turns.

This is book 1 of 6 in a series written by several authors.

He burst into the battle, his leather jacket billowing and his huge silver sword flashing. Amber had no idea why this warrior would rescure her, but there he was-fighting the same demon who'd killed her sister.

I really never read this book. I only like historical books. I was going to try and read it, but just couldn't. I love the authors historical stuff. Very good author.
