That's not the only thing that's different. Zoë is unable to control an unexplainable energy coursing through her body.
Justus De Gradi is a man who can teach her that control. He's handsome, arrogant, and not entirely human. He reveals that she is a Mage-an immortal made of light, not magic. She must now make a choice: Rebuild her life in the human world with the man who saved her, or live with Justus and learn how to use her extraordinary gifts. Justus has sworn an oath to protect her life, but can he guard her from the one man who has a right to claim it?

"CAPTIVATING!!!! Emotional roller-coaster ride.."
Where does Sterling rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
#1 on my chart.....
What did you like best about this story?
Everything...Dannika Dark takes you on a wonderful journey with the characters. She takes you into the world of The Breed, as if you have actually entered it through a warp in time.
Have you listened to any of Nicole Poole’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have never heard Nicole Poole until this series. Love it. She does an excellent performance with the characters voices, the dynamics. Astonishing...
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Everything happens for a reason in life and sacrifice only matters when it is done for the greater good..
Any additional comments?
Highly recommend this series. It's worth it. 5 *****stars across the board..
I truly enjoyed this novel, despite the many negative reviews I read on Good Reads. However, it was Dannika Dark's reputation with me (I was in love with the Seven Series) and the Good reviews that were given were great) that urged me to try Book 1 of the Mageri Series. Boy am I glad I did. One reviewer said she rates a good book by whether she chooses to read it all night long and brave exhaustion or go to sleep; that too is how I rate a good book........
Well folks, not only did I stay up all night listening to the Audiobook, but I continued throughout the early morning while in a zombielike state. I even put my shoes on the wrong foot. Two cups of strong coffee later and a good multi-vitamin later, I brought Twist (book 2) and will be starting it on my evening commute home. Nothing chases away the annoyance of riding the NYC subway system like a good book.
FYI - I often alternate between the Audiobook version and kindle. When I can’t read, I listen. And sometimes the audiobook can really make or break a book depending on who the spoken artist is. Nicole Poole, who reads the Seven Series as well, is wonderful - great tone and pitch of her voice, good male impersonation, and great London accent.
*** ONLY GAVE 4 STARS INSTEAD OF 5 BECAUSE THE BOOK WAS NOT EXACTLY SLOW, BUT IT WAS NOT FAST PACED EITHER. GOOD STORY LINE AND DEFINITELY INTERESTING, BUT THERE WERE NOT MAJOR “GASP” MOMENTS. YOU DID FEEL THE CHARACTERS AS IF THERE WERE ACTUAL BEING, WHICH IS WHAT ADDED TO its ALLURE. ***
