Soul Magic- Jennifer Lyon (book 2)

When an ancient pact is broken, powerful witches who once used their magic to help humanity become the twisted playthings of demons, and the mortal men who once protected the sorceresses become witch hunters, cursed with the longing to spill the witches’ blood: an irresistible craving that will cost witches their lives and witch hunters their souls.
The Wing Slayer Hunters fight this curse, guarding innocent witches until the urge to harm them grows too strong–then they must kill their own. Wing Slayer Sutton West has always honored that vow. His own father killed himself rather than go rogue. But now Sutton is tempted as never before by Carla Fisk, a brilliant psychologist and dynamic witch whose twin sister, Keri, was murdered by rogues. Bound by blood and passion, Carla and Sutton dare not succumb to their deadly attraction. Yet when a mysterious rogue named Styx joins forces with the demon Asmodeus, witch and hunter have no choice but to work together. For Keri’s immortal soul is at stake–and with it, balanced on a knife-edge, is the fate of humanity itself.
Sutton, 6'3", 240 + lbs, shaved head and blue eyes, that should be enough to pull you into this book, right? But it gets better. The self made computer genius is holding onto the pull from the bloodlust by just a hair. In Axel & Darcy's book he rescued Carla (Darcy's witch friend) from the Rogue leader, and he touched her blood. Now his pull towards her is getting to where he can't control it. He needs her blood and her,body. 
Carla had a twin sister Keri, who was killed by rouges two years earlier and since then she has felt nothing but grief until she meets Sutton. Something has sparked between the two of them but Carla is able to go to another plane with her magic, like an out of body experience, where she can take Sutton with her, while there she hears her sister's voice telling her to get the eagle. Sutton's bird of choice that was tattooed on his body is an eagle, so Carla thinks that Sutton is Keri's soul mirror but Sutton thinks it is Carla. Tore between her growing love for Sutton and saving her sister, Carla has to make a hard decision, pick the man she loves or save her sister's soul.
This book kept me spellbound from beginning to end, of course I wanted Carla to be Sutton's soul mirror but I wanted Keri's soul safe too (the end will surprise you). The power behind the writing just pulls you straight into the story to where you don't ever want to escape. Captivating, Intriguing and Enchanted
My Rating: 5
