I closed the door on magic long ago... the day it made me an orphan.

Ten years ago, the Coven of Fire sacrificed their lives — my mother among them — to hold off an overwhelming demonic force. Now it's back. 

As a poorly-paid bartender, how can any of this be my problem? But Callie, another orphan of that battle, swears I'm the key to reviving the coven. And there's an incredibly sexy guardian stranded on my couch who's promising to help me stop the demons and keep the veil between the realms standing. 

One problem: I've never been able to use magic. Our local bad boy warlock assures me I have the talent, but even if I did, we don't have enough witches to complete a coven. The only way to survive is to pull together this pack of magicborn misfits, who have more secrets than spells, into a makeshift coven. 

Can we — three untrained witches, a sarcastic warlock, and an overly intense guardian — take back the city... before the demongate falls and the forces that killed my mother destroy us too? 
Rise by Sierra Cross (Spelldrift: Coven of Fire, #1)

Rise (Spelldrift: Coven of Fire, #1)Alix believed she had no magic, unlike her parents, who died heroically ten years before battling demonic evil. Yet now, she will find herself spell-deep in a fight to save the world from darkness, and just maybe she did have magical powers and just maybe she was one heck of a powerful witch!

Get ready to kick evil’s butt, laugh out loud and cheer for Alix, her big heart and keen sense of right and wrong! RISE by Sierra Cross is a fast-paced, completely entertaining fantasy with characters one can’t help but love how well they were drawn!

Old friends with magical powers will return, a handsome and honorable guardian will appear and one sarcastic warlock will round out the newest coven in town, and trust me, they are far from predictable, unless you can count unpredictable as being the norm!

Alix’s life is about to be turned upside down and inside out, so hang on as we join forces in the latest battle between good and evil.

I had fun with this book and can’t wait to move on to the next book in this series!
