Portia Mullins had always lived the life of a normal teenager, up until her sixteenth birthday. She is then informed by her grandma that she is actually a witch who is a descendant from a long line of witches and warlocks. After overcoming her disbelief she finds that being a member of the coven comes with one great perk in the form of the school’s handsome bad boy, Vance Mangum. Vance and Portia have an immediate connection as a budding romance begins, only to be threatened by turbulent skies on the horizon as Vance’s checkered past rears its ugly head to haunt them. Portia is forced to use her untried powers in defense of everything she loves in a desperate attempt to hold on to the one thing that really matters in her life.
My dear blogger friend Susan Mann from the UK introduced me to this series which I am sure will prove to be a big success. Fans of the Sweep Series by Cate Tiernan will love this book. The story starts as Portia realizes she is not who she seems. Sweet sixteen holds many secrets. Best of all is the sudden and shocking attention of Vance…man on a motorcycle with a tough boy edge. He is majorly swoon worthy ladies. You’ll find yourself drawn to him as his past unravels and his relationship with Portia is challenged by more than one force. Together Vance and Portia explore their heritage and lean how to use their powers all the while feeling something watching them and waiting. Hold on for an action packed magical adventure with roots in the past and present.
Lacey Watherford does a great job of keeping this book clean for teens and teaches youth about true love and trying to avoid leading others lives to darkness. The characters are endearing and fun to get to know. Her pages are packed with surprises and twists of plot that will keep you engaged. A short and fun read, I am looking forward to the rest of the series!
