Circle of Fire by Keri Arthur

Sixteen teenagers taken from their homes. Eleven bodies recovered, each completely drained of blood. Some believe vampires are responsible. Jon Barnett knows its something far worse, and while in Taurin Bay to stop the killers, he quickly becomes enmeshed in a web of black magic. He needs help but fate gives him only one choice.

Madeline Smith has retreated to an isolated farmhouse, afraid of the abilities she cannot control - abilities that have killed. But when a ‘ghost’ brings a warning of danger and her nephew goes missing, Maddie has to leave her haven and learn to control the abilities she fears.

As Maddie and Jon’s search for the teenagers becomes a race against time, the greatest danger to them both could be the feelings they refuse to acknowledge.

Maddie is living a quiet life. Because of a troubled past she doesn't allow anyone near her and she only leaves the house if she absolutely has to. The only people who are still in her life are her nephew and her sister. Maddie's got special abilities, but nobody ever believed in her, that's why she doubts herself when Jon's ghost appears in her living room to ask for help. Without Maddie he will die. Not much later her nephew disappears. Together with Jon she's doing everything to find him.
Maddie and Jon are developing strong feelings for one another. Only Jon doesn't let anyone come close because of his profession. I really liked this pushing and pulling aspect of the book. Circle of Fire is a fast and gripping read. Maddie and Jon are both strong, but stubborn. Both of them have special abilities which are helping them to find their suspects. I loved this wonderful supernatural romance. There was never a dull moment, the whole book is filled witch adrenaline and action packed scenes. The ending wasn't predictable which was a nice surprise. Circle of Fire is the first book in a trilogy. I can't wait to read the other two!
