Book Description: Her mom’s a witch, her dad’s a demon and she just wants to be ordinary. But, when an insidious evil comes after her family, Sydlynn Hayle has to choose to be the normal girl she craves or step up, embrace her magic and save her coven from disaster.
Although Sydlynn Hayle pretends as much as she as possible that she is normal, the truth is she is a witch, Not an ordinary witch; but the daughter of the Demon Lord and the leader of the coven. Being born to the most powerful witch and the demon, Sydlynn has more responsibilities in the coven. But, Syd wants nothing to do with the coven nor her powers. She can't wait to reach the age of 18, so that her parents can take her powers and let her be normal. She is bullied at school and things get nasty for Sydney, when Quaid shows up and her mom says she is promised to him for marriage, when she was a child. When Syd just wants to move away from all of this, there is some danger to her coven and many of them get hurt. Is Sydney going to accept finally who she is?
When I started this book and went on with this book, most of my thoughts were like "Sydlynn is so self-centered, ruthless and a total idiot". All those things were connected to being a teenager. And the problem is I can relate to it. I know how it sounds, but don't tell me that you haven't crossed that path. I definitely did. And Syd has lot of faults..true, but the story is all about her finding the power to accept her true self. The characters are very beautifully brought out, leaving no room for doubts. And I felt close to almost all the characters.
The plot is the main strength to this book. It was so thrilling that I can't put down my Kindle. It's quite confusing to leave the book awhile and do my regular chores. I keep thinking about the book and want to go back to my bed, curl up and just read. This book was just super-amazing. Why haven't I heard about this series before now, seriously stuns me. And the author has written like 20 books in this series. This book is going to be on my favorite list for a very long time.
