Book Description

“Whatever you do, fight.”
Sophia’s family has skeletons, but they aren’t in their graves.
At twenty-two, practicing Wiccan Sophia Parsons is scratching out a living waiting tables in her Rocky Mountain hometown, a pariah after a string of unsolved murders with only one thing in common: her.
Sophia can imagine lots of ways to improve her life, but she’d settle for just getting rid of the buzzing noise in her head. When the spell she casts goes wrong, the static turns into voices. Her personal demons get company, and the newcomers are dangerous.
One of them is a man named Charles, who Sophia falls for despite her better judgment. He has connections that might help her unveil the mystery surrounding her ancestor’s hanging, but she gets more than she bargains for when she finally decides to trust him.
Survival in his world, she learns, means not asking questions and staying out of the immortal council’s way. It’s a line she crossed long ago. If Sophia wants to survive the council and save the people she loves, she must accept who she is, perform dark magic, and fight to the death for her freedom.
Forever Girl will appeal to lovers of paranormal fantasy, mystery, romance, and horror.

My Review

Sophia has lived with being an outcast in her town for years. She has lost all of her family and there have been some mysterious deaths around her. She has always been able to turn to her Wiccan heritage to find peace from the noises in her head. She has also been able to rely on her friends’ Ivory and Lauren, but has felt distant from them as of late.

Sophia is a likeable character and I enjoyed learning more about her throughout the book. There is a supernatural world out there that she had no clue about. With that discovery she must also learn more about herself and her ancestors so that she can deal with the new threats in her life. She was able to take things in her stride and not freak out too much and I think that’s a trait that I liked about her, because I sure as hell would’ve freaked out!! While I was learning about Sophia, we begin to see what the Forever Girl is and that was a great twist to the story, because I really forgot about the name of the book until they used the title in the story…..

Charles is a great guy too. He is very curious about Sophia and he is also very gentle with her. He doesn’t like to push her too far and allows her to come to her own conclusions on her own. They have an early connection and soon he has the compelling need to protect Sophia although he tries not to get attached to her. They both try to deny their chemistry, but it is hard to fight their hearts and I liked to watch their relationship build.

There was a lot to take in throughout this book, many types of supernatural creatures that you learn more about the longer you read. There were some gaps in the book as months would fly by and obviously nothing happened in that time. It was impossible to see where the plot was heading and I liked that unknown factor. Sophia’s powers continued to grow throughout the book and traitors and allies were exposed along the way. There is a little bit of romance in this book, which I would’ve liked to see more of.  Rebecca has done an amazing job building this story and setting it up for the action that is descending on the small group. Things are going to get interesting from here on out!! 

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

  1. Maybe there will be some more romance in the next one, because it sounds like there could be some great chemistry there.
