After years of helping run a museum in the City of Witches, Harper Landry discovers that magic is far closer than she ever imagined.
On the run from a trio of brothers who want to resurrect an evil past, the coven will discover their bloodline is old, powerful—and deadly. From high school to hell, follow them as they realize that nothing is harder than being a teenage witch.
I loved this book! Any book that has a reference to Harry Potter early on is good in my books! (“Turn to page 394.”)
This story was unlike so many YA fantasy stories that are popular today. They often have a girl living in poverty who is suddenly brought to live in a castle (Red Queen, The Selection, Throne of Glass). Though this story is fantasy, it follows a different format.
The pacing of this story was great. The four girls were introduced gradually, so that we get to know them individually. Their story was logical. I had some questions by the end, but this is the first in a series so hopefully they’ll be answered in later books.
I really enjoyed this book! I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series. Check it out and tell me what you think!
