Who Better to Send after a Serial Killer than a Bunch of Preteen Witches?

This was very likeable. Likeable cast. Likeable world. Likeable plot. I am hopeful that the next two books in the series will deepen the plot whilst still building upon this fascinating world.

A Unique Story

This book is an absolute must read for anyone that enjoys fantasy, magic or mythology. It was captivating and very well written. Can't wait to read the next book!

A pleasant surprise!!!

Absolutely loved it and I can’t wait to get into the second book. It is it's own book with it's own identity and gives it no justice to compare it to other books. I initially did not know what to expect with this book, but once I completed it I was pleasantly surprised and I would definitely recommend it to anyone else.
