Sydlynn Hayle is a half witch, half demon who just wants to be wholly normal. She's biding her time until her 18th birthday when she can renounce her magic forever and be ordinary. Problem is renouncing her magic probably means cutting ties to her quirky family. And they mean a lot to her. Even if they DO force her to move cities far too often.

So she's in another small town with another batch of cliches like the cheerleader bully. But this time Sydlynn has had enough of it. It's going to be different now.

Throw in two love interests in the form of the coven's newest addition--Quaid--AND the bully's ex-boyfriend--Brad and a huge betrayal, and you have an exciting story.

For me this book got off to a slow start with a little too much emphasis on Sydlynn's angst. But as the story progressed, I read faster and faster, eager to reach the end. I would have given it four stars if there'd been more of a love story (because I LOVE romance).

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Author Bio:


Patti Larsen is an award-winning middle grade and young adult author with a passion for the paranormal. But that sounds so freaking formal, doesn't it? I'm a storyteller who hears teenager's voices so loud I have to write them down. I love sports even though they don't love me. I've dabbled in everything from improv theater to film making and writing TV shows, singing in an all girl band to running my own hair salon.

But always, always, writing books calls me home.

I've had my sights set on world literary domination for a while now. Which means getting my books out there, to you, my darling readers. It's the coolest thing ever, this job of mine, being able to tell stories I love, only to see them all shiny and happy in your hands... thank you for reading.

As for the rest of it, I'm short (permanent), slightly round (changeable) and blonde (for ever and ever). I love to talk one on one about the deepest topics and can't seem to stop seeing the big picture. I happily live on Prince Edward Island, Canada, home to Anne of Green Gables and the most beautiful red beaches in the world, with my very patient husband and four massive cats.
