I loved this book since the first page and I’m glad it’s the first in a new series!
Ava is smack dab in the middle of a prophecy that could be the start of a war that would change the paranormal world and bring about peace.
With every page I read, more was revealed and I had to keep reading. The world-building is great and the characters are well-written. For the first part of Ava’s life, it’s been pretty normal. She’s relatable that way, too. The thing is, she knows that there maybe supernatural or paranormal beings in the world. I won’t give away any spoilers–you’ll have to read the book to find out how she figures it out–but let’s just say it’s very close to her. It doesn’t hurt that her best friend has the power to see visions. Ava is thrust into a world that she knew almost nothing about but instead of panicking, she vowed to do the best she could and learn her magic with the help of her mother. It’s up to Ava to fulfill the prophecy and make her mother proud. You’ll have to read the book to find out how this all shakes out.
Its a cliffhanger and I almost didn’t mind–which is good for me since I’m not fond of cliff-hangers. That said, the plot is well-written and kept my attention. I wanted to know more about these characters because they are detailed and likable even the villains are interesting.
If you want a book that will keep your interest, then this might be the book for you.
