Once a respected member of the Sorcerer Council and now an outcast, Blaise has spent the last year of his life working on a special magical object. The goal is to allow anyone to do magic, not just the sorcerer elite. The outcome of his quest is unlike anything he could’ve ever imagined – because, instead of an object, he creates Her.

She is Gala, and she is anything but inanimate. Born in the Spell Realm, she is beautiful and highly intelligent – and nobody knows what she’s capable of. She will do anything to experience the world . . . even leave the man she is beginning to fall for.

Augusta, a powerful sorceress and Blaise’s former fiancĂ©e, sees Blaise’s deed as the ultimate hubris and Gala as an abomination that must be destroyed. In her quest to save the human race, Augusta will forge new alliances, becoming tangled in a web of intrigue that stretches further than any of them suspect. She may even have to turn to her new lover Barson, a ruthless warrior who might have an agenda of his own . . .


Unbelievably magical!

Man! I was absolutely blown away by so many aspects of this book, but mostly it was the descriptive ability of Dima. The way he was able to make everything beautiful without dragging every adjective in the dictionary into this book was fabulous.

Blaise was a perfect blend of hot & nerd,  yeah he's a little messy but as the book went on his journey, and growth as a character was so exciting to watch. After accidentally creating Gala, he has to realize that he views may count, but seeing them through the eyes of someone else is harder than is seems.....Especially when you're stuck in your ways already.

Gala was amazing. She's delicate, beautiful and so intelligent I can't even begin to describe. Though she isn't from the same place as Blaise, she has no problem understanding things. There are a couple of times when I wondered, "Shouldn't that be confusing for her", but literally in the next line she made me grasp why she understood what was going on. Plus there's her compassion, some may call her a bleeding heart, I call her perfect!

Overall this book had me wrapped up from page 1! I am really excited to read more from Dima Zales, simply because his mind comes up with some of the most beautiful things.


4/5
