Blurb: Shapiro has a secret she’s desperate to keep—she’s lost her slayer powers. As the new guardian of the Encyclopedia Magicka, Val expected the books to give her powers to replace those that disappeared after she lost her “V card” to Shade. But the encyclopedia exacts a price for every spell, making the job of guardian a tricky proposition.
   When a rogue demon kidnaps Val’s roommate Gwen and Micah, leader of the San Antonio Demon Underground, Val is plunged into the middle of a Solomon’s Choice. The rogue wants the dangerously potent Encyclopedia Magicka in exchange for her friends’ lives; the succubus leader of the Demon Underground in Austin is demanding the books be destroyed rather than let them fall into the wrong hands and wants Shade for herself, swearing to do everything she can to prevent Val’s turning over the books.
   The kidnapping isn’t the only crisis Val faces. She’s been betrayed by Fang. Demons and vampires are disappearing. The vamps of the New Blood Movement are forcing Val to keep the terms of her agreement to work for them to combat this new threat.
   The Demon Underground is challenging Micah's leadership, and everyone is depending on a now-powerless Val to set things right. Val needs all the help she can get. Even if it means forgiving Fang and spending time with a dangerously sexy cowboy-vampire.
   Wow, poor Val just can't catch a break, it's always just one disaster after another! If you're a fan of this series, you won't want to miss this one, there are just too many climactic turning points with the plot.
   There are some crucial changes to Val & Shade's relationship. Val also has another change in her role in the Demon Underground (I don't want to give too much away). She also has some changes to her relationship with the vampires in the New Blood Movement. I really like where the next book seems to be heading!
    It did take me until about halfway through this book to really get into it, but I actually liked this one the best out of all the books in the series, and I think it's because Val seems to be growing up more in this book. Val always has so many responsibilities thrust upon her shoulders, that it is hard to remember that she is only eighteen years old. This book is no different, but I think she is finally starting to grow up some and take the responsibilities in stride.
   Parker Blue has really became such a great author throughout these books and I've been glad to see her grow as a writer. This one is my favorite to date and I can't wait to see what happens to Val next! All in all, a really good book!
