For me, this book was a good take on witchcraft. You had your good and bad as well as your battle for light and dark. For Victoria, all she ever wanted to do was to hurry up, graduate high school, and get into Uni. Her family, for many years has had a bad name for themselves. Family members dying of unknown causes and just possible suspicious activities that are out of the norm. She’s been picked on for many years, she just wants a clean break.
After the death of her grandmother, she starts to unravel her capabilities. But with knowledge comes with a lot of practice. However, with the practice comes the possibility of bringing about the darkness. Can Victoria quickly learn the craft in order to save her friends? Or will being new to the practice cause more problems?
With many characters in play, this author did a great job in keeping everything and everyone in the correct places. The story line was spread out really well and was also different in your typical witchcraft stories. It was a great mix of everything. Looking forward to how the continues in the next book!

Thinking the traditional publishing route was the only way to go, I spent weeks researching how to prepare my manuscript for submission to the big publishers. Then something wonderful happened – during my research I stumbled across the world of indie authors. I was excited about the fact that I could publish my novel all on my own. I learned everything I could find about indie publishing and prepared my first novel for the virtual bookshelves. Since then I have also published a collection of short stories, as well as my latest YA urban fantasy trilogy.
I enjoy reading and writing science fiction, fantasy, horror, and thrillers. I love everything to do with aliens, demons, the paranormal and the unexplained, ancient mysteries, and pretty much anything else that's strange or just out of the ordinary.
I live with my husband on the Gold Coast in Australia. When I’m not writing, I’m reading, going for long walks on the beach, or I’m busy untangling the many story ideas inside my head.
