Sixteen-year-old Sydlynn Hayle is the daughter of a powerful witch and a demon lord of the seventh plane. The trouble is, she just wants to be ordinary. Syd struggles to survive the minefield of her new high school while being torn between her attraction to football hero Brad Peters and the darkly mysterious Quaid Moromond. When her coven comes under attack, Syd is forced to face the fact she is a witch and only her power can save her family’s magic.

My Thoughts

A beautiful coming of age story about a young witch who just wants to be normal. Like many of us at her age Sydlynn Hayle struggles with all the problems and drama that high school can bring. As well as dealing with her attraction to football hero Brad and mysterious Quaid.

I loved this book and thought that it brought a magical yet relatable tale to life that many people will enjoy. Sydlynn is a great character and I liked reading her story and loved her “voice”. Her secondary characters were really well written too. As far as the boys go I have to say that I tended to lean more towards Quaid, but that is just my opinion. Decide for yourself and check out this great novel!
