Book Name: Knight  Avenged

Author's Name: Coreene Callahan 
Main Characters: Henrik and Cosmina 

Series: The Circle of Seven #2

Release Date: July 15, 2014 

BLURBAlone in a world on the brink of war…two unlikely allies will discover a love greater than time.
Exiled from her home, powerful oracle Cosmina Cordei holds the key to uniting those protecting mankind from evil. But just as she makes her way into the holy city to perform an ancient rite, the enemy closes in for the kill…
Drawn by a destiny he won’t accept, elite assassin Henrik Lazar detests the mystical curse handed down by his mother. But when the sorcery in his blood is activated and past pain comes back to haunt him, his new abilities come into play and he must learn to control them.
Rescued by Henrik in the heat of battle, Cosmina must decide whether to trust the assassin who loathes the goddess she serves or face certain death on her own. Forced into an untenable position, Henrik is left with a terrible choice—protect the magical Order he despises, or deny destiny and lose the woman he loves forever.

Shonna's review
My rating: 5
The Goddess of All Things calls upon her servants in the Order of Orm, (known as the Blessed) to return to White Temple. There, sacred rituals must be performed to strengthen the Goddess’ ties with the earth realm. 
The Blessed, Cosmina, is a seer as well as the Keeper of the Key for White Temple. Beautiful green eyes, and thick red hair spiraling with curl, she is determined to do as the Goddess wishes even though the enemy is closing in. Now time is running out and she knows she can’t do it alone. But the only one that can help despises her world and the magical sorcery it holds. 
Short black hair with hazel-gold eyes and wide shoulders, Henrik radiates solid power. A warrior, and deadly assassin, he dictates control with no mercy for his enemy. His past whirls his destiny with the present. Drawing him to accept what he can not change and bending his will along with his heart to what he feels he should not embrace.
This is a great series! The world of the CIRCLE OF SEVEN is so captivating. After reading the first in the series, Knight Awakened, I was about to bust to get this second installment Knight Avenged. The main characters and their love story are well developed and gripping. And to top it off, I am so in love with the other characters in this book too. Oh yes, I can’t wait to get more on Tareek, Andrei, Kazim, Garren, Cristobal,.. oh and I can’t forget Nairobi and the very mysterious and enchanted Thea. Coreene Callahan is such a talented author, I am so looking forward to seeing where her writing takes this next.
