This is a first for me. I don't remember previously reading any books with demons in them. However, It was a pager turner. Eve Silver has truly entriqued me. I will look for her books in the future. I also was quite pleased with how well the cover fit with the story. The characters were on target as well as the glove! Finally someone matches the storyline and the book cover well.

Great book. It is the first book of the Compact of Sorcerers series by Eve Silver. The story was good. It involves an ongoing storyline that continues into the next book as well as the romance that is featured between the main characters. Author does a good job with her supporting characters, mostly the other Sorcerers. I became very interested in them and how they interact and relate to one another. I look forward to their stories as well and seeing how the ongoing story evolves and is resolved.
I happened to read this poor book right after the new highly awaited Kresley Cole novel and just before I was able to purchase the also highly awaited new Larissa Ione novel. So, unfortunately I was prone to drifting off into other lands created by other authors as I was reading this novel. I'd also just read Eve Silver's Sins of the Heart, the first book in her new Otherkin series, which had several parallels to this first in the Compact of Sorcerers series, and it was very hard to not continuously compare the two storylines. In other words, I was reeeeeaaaallly distracted as I was reading this novel. But it attests to the strength of the author's characterization and world building that I kept reading and eventually liked the book enough to want to keep it instead of swapping it for something else. I even want to read the sequel because the hero in that novel had a small, but powerful, cameo in this novel that intrigued me. I would definitely recommend this novel. But do NOT read it directly after the Otherkin series as it will be lackluster in comparison. The Compact of Sorcers series is bleak, dark, and gritty. So is the Otherkin series. But the latter also has some humor, a lot more shades of gray, and a vibrancy to it that makes it a more entertaining read and showcases Silver's evolution as a writer.
