A brutal murder of a child brings Belle and Tristan to South Carolina to investigate. The battle between Warlock and Arthur escalates with Warlock framing Magekind (and Arthur specifically) with horrific murders to bring Direkind together to eliminate Magekind forever. I really like this take on Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table mixed with witches, vampires and werewolves. It's a unique concept that works. I can't wait to read [b:Master of Darkness|12793221|Master of Darkness (Mageverse, #9)|Angela Knight|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1335321179s/12793221.jpg|17941176] to see Warlock get his ass kicked once and for all. It'll be interesting to see how Ms. Knight brings werewolf/witch Miranda and werewolf William Justice together to fight the ultimate evil...their werewolf elder, Warlock.
