Angus Donohue doesn’t want to be a warlock. He believes draining demons for magic is evil, but it’s a dangerous opinion to have—his father is a powerful and well-connected warlock, and Angus is expected to follow the family tradition.
His only way out is to fail the demon summoning class. Failure means expulsion from the Warlock College. Despite Angus’s best efforts to fumble the summoning, it works. Although not the way anyone expects.
Angus’s demon, Saka, is a powerful mage with his own need for a warlock.
Saka wants to use Angus in a ritual to rebalance the magic that is being stripped from Demonside by warlocks. If Angus survives his demon’s desires and the perils of Demonside, he’ll have to face the Warlock College and their demands.
Angus must choose: obey the College and forget about Demonside or trust Saka and try to fix the damage before it’s too late. Whatever he does, he is in the middle of a war he isn’t qualified to fight

My View:

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I love books with demons and wizards and such and this book is loaded with it. It has fantastic writing and keeps you wondering what will happen next.

Angus is a wizard who doesn’t want to be. His father made him go to Warlock College when all he wanted to do was go in the medical field. So in one of his tests in summoning a demon, he is trying hard to fail. He doesn’t want to do this and he figures if he fails they will kick him out. But his plan backfires. Instead, he gets a demon who is mastering him.

Saka is a demon mage and a powerful one. He has been searching for a way to save his world. Magic on the humanside is destroying the demonside and they need a way to fix it. So Saka takes Angus with him in hopes to use his blood or other ways to rebalance the demonside. Angus surprises him though in wanting to help when he sees what is going on and how the warlocks on his side are using the magic and seeing the lies the elders have told.  He learns there are three ways to rebalance: soul, blood, or sex magic. Taking his soul doesn’t appeal to him, so he chooses the other two.

Throughout the book, Angus and Saka are learning more of the lies being told by warlocks and are doing everything possible to save demonside and rebalance both sides the way it should be.

Do they make it in time?
