Author: Cassandra Larsen
Summary: This was not what Emerson was expecting for her 17th birthday. She expected a brand new car, a gift from her boyfriend, and maybe a big party for her. She was not expecting to be admitted in a coven of witches. She also was not expecting to find answers to her mothers “suicidal” death. Em doesn’t think that her mother really killed herself but people might think that she is crazy. She might think that she is crazy but when she meets Caiden she now sees he is far more crazier than her. He is the one who told her about the coven of witches. How he is a witch, like Em’s mother and now Em. The coven of witches weren’t so sure if Em was going to be a witch or not. Her father is human but her mother is a witch. They all thought she wasn’t because she didn’t gain her powers on her 14th birthday which is the age where witches get their powers but instead got hers on her 17th birthday. As Em begins to see this world of witches she keeps asking herself what really happened to her mother. Now more than ever she is seeing that maybe it wasn’t her mother that killed herself and somebody else did. This book really did surprise me. I am not a huge fan of witches and this book really made me rethink my thoughts about witches. The first two books in the series were great and now I can not wait to see what this author has in store. Even though it was a great book, it also was a very short book. Other than being short I would say to give this book a chance.
My Review: I really enjoyed reading this book. I thought this world really was quite creative and I enjoyed reading about it. As you know sometimes I could really like the story and not like all the characters. This is what happened in this book. The only character that I actually was really intrigued by was Caiden and some of his friends. I got annoyed really easily with em but as she progresses I started to like her more and more. The people that I really did not like were Sebastian, Olivia, Josh, and Ethan. As soon as I read the Sebastian was Em’s boyfriends I stated that I did not like him. ( I ship Caiden and Em #Cemerson) Olivia and Josh on the other hand took me a while to hate. More Olivia than Josh because Josh is just so hateful towards em and that already gives me a reason to not like him but Olivia was her best friends so em should have backup when things go wrong. When Olivia doesn’t back em up then that is when I really felt annoyed and didn’t want to hear from her. Ethan….. I have a love/hate relationship with him. he is one of Caiden’s best friend. He is super protective towards his friends and especially his girlfriends. Who happens to be friends with Em. So Ethan tried to keep his girlfriend away form em when they just wanted to be friends and Ethan didn’t let her do that so i don’t know about Ethan. Other than the characters I really enjoyed the setting and the story behind it. So I would say to give this book a shot, it might just surprise you.
