                                                             ~My Review~ 
                                                                     4 stars

I received a hard copy of this book-and can say right off the bat, I truly love getting hard copy books to read...It's still my favorite way to experience a book! Not to mention the cover of this book is very cool! It really draws you in and encourages to want to read the book! 

This book is about a coven, in particular Syd's coven. Her mother currently being the head witch. But what's unique for them is Syd's father is a demon-meaning her and her sister are half witch, half demon. Syd is burdened with the fact that she is the heir and it will be her job to run the coven some day-in fact she spends her teenage life fighting that fact terribly, constantly wishing she was just a normal kid. Not to mention picking fights with her mother every chance she gets. 

But then the coven becomes under attack, from what no one can determine, but it forces Syd to realize she needs to help protect her family-in fact she is often the only thing that keeps then all from death many times. 

On top of all the family drama, Syd finds herself constantly dealing with high school bullies, some how attracting their ridicule and often being the center of their unwelcome attention. How she handles it all, speaks of maturity-that is when her demon doesn't take over for her. 

This is a pretty fun story about coven life and how one teenager handles it all. The story has a bit of depth to it with the mother/daughter trouble as well as the bully trouble through her school, which was nice. Far too often stories like this are written without that depth, and I believe it actually made the story better with it! 

Overall it was a great read and I look forward to seeing more in this series!

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.
