The man of her dreams might be the cause of her nightmares.
Six months ago, Abby Sinclair was struggling to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. Now, she has an enchanted iPod, a miniature unicorn living in her underwear drawer, and a magical marketplace to manage. But despite her growing knowledge of the OtherWorld, Abby isn’t at all prepared for Brystion, the dark, mysterious, and sexy-as- sin incubus searching for his sister, convinced Abby has the key to the succubus’s whereabouts. Abby has enough problems without having this seductive shape-shifter literally invade her dreams to get information. But when her Faery boss and some of her friends vanish, as well, Abby and Brystion must form an uneasy alliance. As she is sucked deeper and deeper into this perilous world of faeries, angels, and daemons, Abby realizes her life is in as much danger as her heart—and there’s no one she can trust to save her.



This was a unique, entertaining Urban Fantasy.. Allison Pang's world is full of imagination and her characters pulled everything together to make every written word believable. 
Abby has no idea what she was getting herself into when she signed her contract as a touchstone, she is seriously undereducated in all things magical and it was fun and entertaining to watch her learn. The story is full of adventure and laughs with a few sexy scenes thrown into the mix. Come on now, it has a talking smart ass Unicorn in it, must I say anything else? The ending leave's things open so you will be excited to know that there will be another book to read in the future.


I gave it a 4/5 stars

  1. I am about 15% done with this (according to goodreads lol) and I just can't seem to get into it. I don' t know why - there is nothing wrong with it, it's just not grabbing my attention...

I am temporarily turning on word verification because of the 30+ spammer comments a day UFI is currently receiving. Hopefully having it on for a few days will make that go down but Im sorry for the extra step you will need to take in the meantime. Thanks for stopping by =)
