Summery: Armed with kick-ass shoes, can CJ stop a maniacal coven leader, save the town, and still get Mr. Melt In Your Mouth Gorgeous while surviving the darkness coming for her?
The smoke from the fire burned her eyes, its heat caressed her skin and the taste of fear choked her. She was going to burn just as her ancestor did all those centuries ago in New Salem Village. How could she have been so wrong about everything?
Cassie Jayne Bishop grew up the only non-believer in town of Coven. When a stranger comes to the sleepy town of New Salem, everything she thought was true unraveled around her. Ethan made her question everything, even her sister’s death. Clues start to pile up and Cassie is determined to find out if the Coven was the real reason her sister died.
What she uncovers terrifies her to the very depths of her soul….
I am just gonna point out that there was a LOT of things i did love about the book, but really the only thing i had a problem is was, the whole love interest in the book. I felt like it rushed and you really didn’t get a chance to understand it all. I have never been a fan of books that start with the whole “Love in first Sight” thing.
The first chapter starts off with Cassie, She is already head of Heels for this mystery guy named Ethan. This guy throws red flags left and right. She knows she can’t trust him and his keeping secrets but to her she is in total love with this guy even when time after time it’s been proven not to trust him. And with that added comes the Love triangle…petty much the classic romance trick in the books. I have a love and hate relationship with love triangles, if it’s done right i love it, but if it done wrong i just don’t like it. In this case i didn’t like it much in this book. Cassie was so blindly in love with this Ethan guy she couldn’t see. Now if i had to pick a Team then i would hop on the Jeff Train.
Now besides all that i did enjoy and adored the story. You have Cassie and Kay, best friends since childhood. They have strange bond where they can feel each others emotions. They are petty much like sisters separated at birth. They both born on the same day and at the same time and that is petty much a hint to the awesome overall plot to the story. Cassie Has never believed in magic or anything like that, to her it’s something in a book or on TV, Total fictional. Her sister was part of the coven and couldn’t wait for Cassie to join but right before she dies she made Cassie promise to never join the coven.
The whole Town is pretty much part of a big coven with witches. They all want Cassie to join but for one she doesn’t believe and two she had made a promise. Of course the more the story goes the harder it is to stay away. Cassie is determined to find out the mystery’s of the coven and her sisters death and along the way she discovers more then she bargain for.
I love the overall story and the concept. I liked how the book twisted into something much bigger then what it started as. I will definitely read more books to this series. I might not have liked the whole Love interest in this book but the story grows more then just that and you get a big bundle of Suspense and Mystery that makes you want to read more.
Overall i am gonna give it a 4 out 5 star rating because besides the romance flaw there is amazing story and i can’t wait to read more.
About the Author
So who am I? Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.
I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.
