I am interested enough to give the next book a try.  I wasn’t really drawn into the story like I usually am.  I hope the next one can reel me in!

– Spoilers passed this point.-

Nadia doesn’t like to have to move from the big city to B.F.E., but she was willing to in order for her family to get a fresh start.  Almost to their new town, she feels the magic and tries to make sense of it.  By the time she does, it’s too late.  Her grimoire slams into the barrier causing the car to flip into a ditch.

Luckily, her family survives with relatively minor injuries.   But that is where she meets him first.  Mateo had pulled her from the car while her father attended to her little brother and called 911.  He was beautiful and he seemed to recognize her.  How could that be?

Mateo was on the highway that night.  He was in a class with her at high school.  He was there when she got lost after running off after being caught practicing her craft.  He was the one who brought her cell phone to her when she didn’t even realize it was missing.  He seemed to be everywhere coming to her rescue.  And yet, he seemed not to want anything to do with her.  What the hell?

Mateo knows he is doomed to insanity as the family curse begins with prophetic dreams about the new girl.  Every dream he sees her dying and doesn’t want that. He has to stay away from her for her own good.   Only he can’t.  She’s everywhere and he can’t help himself.  He wants her.

Nadia might not be able to make sense of Mateo (guys, go figure!), but she knows enough Craft to sense that evil is in this town.   Something big is coming.   But, what or who is it?  Will she be able to stop it?


My Rating: ☆
