The Last Regent
There are many wars in the world. Good vs evil, demons vs angels, councils vs civilians, magic vs energy.
And no matter how big those wars are, no matter how powerful they become, there has never been a truce. Until now.

Theresa Harmon has lived her entire life suppressed by an anti-magic spell that has rendered her mortal despite being born from one of the most powerful Wiccan covens in the world. When an unforeseen circumstance forces her to attend a Wickening to claim back her powers, she is condemned to hopelessness as the innocent Wickening conspires into sacrificial blood lust led by the all-powerful Wiccan Elder, Amera.
Theresa should have died that day. Amera was ready to perform the impossible and unite Theresa with a dignified, mortal death. What Theresa never expected, was to survive. But more than that, she never expected to be saved by the very creatures her kind have warred with for centuries: Slayers.
Sam Falcon never intended for Theresa to survive the sacrifice either. He had hoped she would have been killed before Amera got what she wanted from her. Being a half-demon, half-human assassin never taught him the meaning of mercy. And a Slayer saving a witch from death has never before been heard of, throwing him into the firing line from all those that dare to follow his leadership.
As armies grow, threats circulate and unlikely alliances are formed; Theresa must fight through her DNA compulsion that compels her to hate and fight the Slayers she is now living with in a mysterious, ancient castle.
As the Slayers who once treated her with mistrust and suspicion begin to warm to her, Theresa soon discovers the true meaning of family and hope when she is faced with a life-changing power that might be the key to saving the Slayers from Amera's wrath.
But Theresa will always be a witch, and when she starts to fall for someone she can never be with, a new war begins; forcing powerful dark forces to the surface.
