Science and hard cold facts have always been Cassandra's life. Yes she’s read fairy tales, but that’s all they are, tales. Magic and magical beings have never been proven and she only believes in what science can back up. A graduate student at a prestigious university, she never imagined her life any differently. But one fateful winter day, she learns the world is not as black and white as she’d imagined, and the childhood stories she’d read were real. To keep the world from being swallowed by evil, Cassandra has to trust a man who uses magic as easily as she breathes.
