Publisher's Summary

Paige Winterbourne is a witch. Not that you'd notice - no warts, no green skin, no cute little wiggle of the nose whenever she casts a spell. No, most of the time she's just a normal 23-year-old girl; works too hard, worries about her weight, wonders if she'll ever find a boyfriend. Okay, so she does have an adopted teenage daughter, Savannah, who wants to raise her black witch of a mother from the dead. And who is being stalked by a telekinetic half-demon and an all-powerful cabal of sorcerers. But other than that, Paige has a really ordinary life. That is, until the neighbours find out who she is, and all hell breaks loose. Literally…

I'm biased

I'm biased, because I've read this book so many times already, but it's always just as good!

I didn't like the narrator because she made Savannah sound like a 3 year old instead of a teenager, and Lucas sounded like a hoarse old lady. Although I will say that she did a real good Paige, and anywhere that wasn't characters, her voice is soothing and she has a talent to make you feel what the author has written. If the situation is dire, she makes it clear. Skillful narrator, but voice-wise not for me when it comes to the characters.

The story itself is for lack of a better word, awesome!
Suspenseful and intriguing, first time I read this series I just had to continue with the next book, and the next asap because it's just so good. The only remark I have is the ending. Not because it's bad, but it's very abrupt. Allt this stuff happens and then it's over and the last 8 minutes of the story is the "what happens next"-part. It should have been longer, a little more detailed.

Real struggle to finish

There wasn’t anything about the main character that I actually liked, which is obviously a huge stumbling block for any book. She just bumbles around life not having a clue what she’s doing and making stupid decisions. Then on top of that, there’s no chemistry between the two main characters. I just about managed to listen to the whole book but nearly gave up so many times.
