Posted also at my blog: The Book Twins | YA & Adult reviews
From the bestselling author, Melissa de la Cruz comes a brand new series, but instead of vampires, we have a family of witches.
We're introduced to the Beauchamp Family. Joanna, and her two daughters, Freya and Ingrid. Each woman has their own share of powers, and problems that come with it.
After Freya gets engaged to Bran and then meets his dashing, sexy brother, Killan, she forms a striking connection with him she can't seem to shake.
Her sister, Ingrid seems to have her own share of love problems when it comes to local cop, Matt Noble, his interest in her is obvious to everyone but Ingrid and she just might push him away before she even realize her own feelings for him.
Amongst all the love problems going on with the girls love lives, Joanna discovers there is a dark and evil presence lurking in their town and she is the only one who will be able to stop it.
After being tired of being restricted in not being able to use their powers, the girls get to the point where they don''t care what happens to them, using their abilities is who they are and they will not be stopped in doing something that feels natural.
Mystery, love and magic makes this book a great story that will make you believe anything is possible.
I really loved Freya, Ingrid and Killian. The villian in the story I didn't expect, but almost felt like a relief in some way. Things from the beginning made sense as you got to the end and the puzzle begun to piece back together.
Joanna is also a good mother to the girls. She has lost her husband and son to unknown situations, so she feels she has to protect the ones she has left.
And of course a cliffhanger to die for and makes you itching for book 2.
