Serena Sykes just discovered that the mother, identical twin sister, and niece she never knew existed…are the last remaining witches on the planet. That is, except for Serena, who recently received her own limited, albeit wildly erratic supernatural abilities.

But her newfound family isn’t interested in helping her master those gifts. After all, Serena’s mother has been communicating beyond the veil with the first witch in their line, a sorceress named Zephora who hopes to return to this dimension and destroy an ancient curse that would unleash paranormal creatures across the globe.

To help guide her in this new landscape, Serena turns to her grandmother, an elderly woman suffering from dementia and the only vampire in existence, a man who has his own mysterious agenda. With less than 48 hours to prevent her family from triggering a supernatural wasteland, Serena must learn to control her abilities…if she hopes to save the world!

***Jaime – #NerdGirlJay’s  Review***
Family secrets, curses and a spunky lead female make this book a definite must read for any new adult/sci fi fans!

Serena discovers she has family that she never knew exsited. A mother, an identical twin sister and a neice. And they are the last remaining witches on the planet. Well, besides Serena. They are family after all. But they have other plans and have no intention of helping Serena learn how to use her gifts. Her mother is more interested in helping the first witch in their family tree, Zephora, return to the world and destroy a curse. A curse that would let all sorts of paranormal creatures run around on earth.

Serena is a great lead character! Spunky, strong, fearless, snarky. I felt kind of bad for her with all the things she went through in the book. She had a lot to deal with, especially after just finding out she was a witch! And finding out you have a mother who wants to basically set loose Hell on Earth has to really suck.

The story is full of twists and turns and keeps you hanging on until the very end!
