I haven’t read any books prior to this where the main character is a witch. I’ve read plenty of other Paranormal books featuring Vampires and Werewolves, but not witches. What has taken me so long? This book was fantastic!!
It wasn’t your typical Witch story involving old witches with warts stirring their big black cauldrons. Trish Milburn has taken a piece of history, the Salem Witch trials from 1692, and given it a bit of a twist. She states that human’s didn’t record the history correctly, that there was eighty-nine extra people murdered at the time around the trials, so the Witches decided to rebel and draw on old and dark powers to retaliate. They raise their children in these beliefs and basically brainwash them into doing what they’ve been destined to become.
However not all of the children feel this way. Jaxina Pherson was raised with these beliefs, but after the death of her mother she started making plans to escape her coven. She ends up in Baker Gap, North Carolina, trying to live a life as a normal teenage girl, going to school, making friends and trying her best not to tap into her powers so she doesn’t attract her family.
The characters in the book are easy to connect with and I found them all quite likeable. Jax is very independent; she relies on herself and her instincts to survive. Keller was raised as a hunter and it is his job to kill all things supernatural. He is portrayed as a tough character, but he is starting to see some shades of grey when it comes to his job, causing him to question some of his beliefs.
Toni is a fun and witty character. She seems to just float through life not caring about what anyone thinks of her. She has her own style and seems to go with it, much to the disappointment of her mother! Toni and Jax hit it off early as they have similar interests. And Egan: smart and good looking who has quite a carefree approach. What girl doesn’t like a boy on a bike!!
I really was bewitched by this book!! I thought it had an intriguing plot, involving witch history in the modern world. There’s romance and action, what more could I want from a Paranormal book!
