This book has been blowing up my Amazon account for awhile now and I could not resist checking it out. It was advertised as the next Harry Potter, so I delved into it with high hopes.
This story is different from Harry Potter. Aside from the fact that the main character is an orphan with magical powers and there is a point system at her educational institution, the story is original and should not be compared to something else.
I have never read Forrest before, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a new author that I enjoyed reading in one of my favorite genres.
The story was easy to read, magically entertaining and all the characters were unique and intriguing. I also appreciate that the potential love interests are a VERY slow burn.
At this point in the series, I have no complaints. It was a pleasurable reading experience and I look forward to seeing what happens in the next installment.
If you are looking for a mysterious and enchanting read then check out this story.
You can find the story on Amazon in multiple formats.
Synopsis: When a rogue 19-year-old witch is recruited to help guard an ancient magical Bestiary, a breath-stealing journey begins…
Being an empath has its advantages.
Harley Merlin can sense people’s emotions, among other things. It’s how she snagged her first job pinpointing cheaters at a casino.
But she has no clue where she got these freakish powers because she spent her childhood jumping from home to home in the foster system, and her father left her with nothing more than a cryptic note.
Then she crosses paths with a terrifyingly real monster. Which is when a mysterious and annoyingly arrogant young warlock named Wade Crowley steps in, introducing her to a hidden world of beasts, magicals, and covens riddled with secrets—as well as clues about her murky past.
Whether she likes it or not, this new world is where she belongs. But after a disturbing twist of events, Harley quickly realizes that her past is darker than she could ever have imagined.
And that someone in the coven is out for her blood.
With the help of Wade and her new friends, she must figure out who the traitor is and why they’re targeting her… Before the human and magical worlds dangerously collide.
