The Seer yanks his chain, and Silas could swear she does it for fun. Knowing that she manipulates everyone around her hasn't helped him at all over the last two centuries. 

His little band of misfits has come apart. Edie is gone and refusing to speak to him. Mark is still trying to figure out how to control his ability and the Seer has ordered him to keep the boy in the dark. And Callie tempts him with a life he cannot have. 

A seat on the powerful Witches Council has opened up and Silas is stuck in the middle of the machinations unfurling over which faction of the witches will gain the upper hand. Angry witches, lies, and murder are just the start. 

Events in the Windy City will push Silas to the edge and reveal an unexpected enemy.

GUEST POST
"The Double Personality"

I live a double life: college professor by day and fiction writer by night. Most of the time, I don't think about it. When I started writing, using a pen name just made sense. My books all include graphic sex scenes (for me, it's no fun if I don't get to write the sex) and it's already challenging to keep a room full of 18 to 22 year-olds focused. I can only imagine the giggles and mayhem if one of them figured out their professor wrote some demon porn. And with college students, once one knows, they all know. 

I do end up feeling a little disingenuous when I do guest posts or answer interview questions because I'm not being entirely honest about who I am. My answers are true, but it still feels like I'm fibbing. It's especially uncomfortable to use a photo that isn't me. I didn't think much about the peripheral parts that go along with publishing—author websites and profiles or advertising and book tours—until after deciding using a pen name was the right path. I guess that's one downside of being self-published. 

I also feel a little weird since not all of my friends know that I write under a pen name. It's never happened, but I always wonder if one day someone is going to react poorly to the reveal. Since I teach college, I don't have to worry that my employers care about what I do with my free time. (Though, I have to say, isn't it crappy than primary and secondary school teachers do have to care?) Occasionally, I find myself wondering if my students would react at all. They'd probably yawn and ask if it was going to be on the next test.

About the author:
Anna Wolfe is a college professor by day and a novelist by night. In fact, writing urban fantasy is the only reason she is still (mostly) sane post-dissertation. When she isn't writing, teaching, or dicking around on the Internet, she is probably cooking with her husband or watching trashy television.
