Genre: YA Fantasy
***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Seeking refuge in an ancient castle, the siblings begin down a path that will change their lives forever. Suddenly thrust into a world where handsome warriors command the power of nature and peoples thoughts and actions can be manipulated at will, Mia and Dino struggle to navigate their own allegiances and do what they know to be right, even when everything around them seems beyond their control.
I was excited to get a copy of this book as I love YA and I love all things witchy. Sadly this didn’t quite work for me as well as I would have liked.
The story idea was good and the main characters were described fairly well and there was a distinct twist towards the end which I liked which I didn’t see coming at all but it didn’t have that page turning, must read feeling that I was hoping for.
I think the problem for me lay with the secondary characters. They never really came alive for me despite having plenty of page time.
This author definitely has an interesting take on the magical work though and I don’t expect this will be the last that I read from her.
3/12 stars rounded up to 4 stars from me.
