Book Description:

The Angel
After three years caring for her dying mother, Layla Callaway learns she was adopted under unusual circumstances. Following a cryptic message to seek her birth family in Oregon, Layla uproots her lonely life, quickly finding she descends from witches and wizards. Magic is in her blood, and a handsome family friend is eager to prove it. Through a ring imprinted with her birth parents’ memories, Layla’s enigmatic past comes to light, presenting possibilities and trials more chimerical than her wildest dreams.

The Guardian
Quin’s natural charisma yields plenty of witches, but he longs for the lost witch – the mysterious Layla. He’s dreamed about her his entire life, envisioning the day he would lay eyes on her face and aura. When that day arrives, not only is he breathless, he’s confronted with the challenge of a lifetime – an innate need to keep her safe and forever by his side.

The Hunter
Employing fiendish manipulation and manpower, Agro uses the arcane force of others to elevate his supremacy and wealth. Nothing pleases him more than latching on to a mystical vein, and never has there been a more enticing source. The divine witch will be his.

‘Descension’ has been loaded onto my Kindle for several months now but I have been unable to read it due to being so busy 😦 so when the opportunity came to join the blog tour I thought ‘hell yeah’ and so Layla and Quin entered my life!

Admittedly it was a slow start, Layla has had a quiet life, but all her tragedy has been squeezed into three years, with her mother’s illness and subsequent death. Following her 21st birthday she receives a surprise phonecall from her mother’s lawyer who suggests a meeting where he hands her an envelope from her mum, containing a letter about her true beginning in life and with enough money for her to travel and search for her real family.
The clues she has been left lead her to a coffee shop in Portland and to Descension’s leading man Quin. He knows Layla, because he lives near her grandparents and he has dreamt about her all his life. However he knows that the information he shares with her  must be given gradually because Layla is in danger and is safest surrounded by people who can protect her.
‘Descension’ was a very easy book to become involved with, as B C Burgess constantly reminds her reader of her characters’ emotions. The scenes in which Layla relives her parents memories are long but necessary for the story and be warned that you may need a box of tissues nearby!
I really enjoyed the way in which the very symbiotic relationship between Layla and Quin is portrayed. They both need each other, both emotionally and sexually but Layla is also learning about who she is from Quin, and Quin has never felt so deeply for a woman before. I am interested to see which direction B C Burgess will choose to take their relationship and will it destroy or will it flourish?
I loved the characters of Layla’s grandparents who are so full of genuine love and care that I just wanted to reach into the book and hug them!
B C Burgess has created a world inside ‘Descension’ of magic, romance and family with a fundamental sense of fear and danger. A must read which should 
be followed with the sequel.
