Series: The Vilincia Coven #1
A coven of witches hidden by a small town. The secrets buried deep in the past are finally breaking ground. The third generation of coven kids are now faced with the task of fixing the mistakes of their ancestors. With time running out, can they save the world from their past? Or will they die trying to save us all?
So I'm a fan of Witches and Paranormal. As soon as I read the summary of this book, I dived at the chance to read it. It truly had a interesting summary and I was intrigued to see what sort of adventure and twists this story would have.
We are briefly introduced into the Vilincia world, given a little back story on the coven that involved 8 families. Set in a more modern day and age, we have our main protagonist Cole Taylor - his destiny is to become the god to protect mankind. Cole is assigned a Watcher who would observe and protect him for 2 years before leaving. This Watcher happens to be the daughter of one of the families part of the coven that were cursed many years ago, and the girl Cole falls in love with.
This is a very fast paced and easy read. I breezed through the book in no time at all and found myself enjoying it an awful lot. There are a lot of characters that made the book fun and enjoyable. There is magic and dark elements that made it gritty and thrilling and despite the grammatical errors, I really liked it. It is very different to anything I've read and Cole makes a very strong protagonist. (I also loved the fact that he wasn't some hormonal teenage boy, he was very sweet when it came to his relationship with Whitney!) His friendship with Benson was admirable. I loved reading their scenes and watching their friendship grow even stronger. They make a great pair!
I would have liked if some scenes were a little longer as I felt more could have been said. We get quite a lot of jumping from scene to scene and it's pretty quick too. Nevertheless, I still enjoyed it. There is so much mystery and action, a bit of everything really. Lots of romance too! It's just a really fun and exciting book! The twists are never-ending and I really look forward to reading the next book. I recommend people give this book a try!
(Huge thank you to Jennifer for kindly sending me a review copy!)
About the Author:
I’m a mom of three and I love to write! I have a devoted husband who puts up with all my writing. When I’m not blogging or writing I’m curled up reading or playing with the kids. I am a stay at home mom and have to keep everyone happy. It’s a lot more complicated than it sounds. While I love reading children’s books to my kids I love to read and write about paranormal romance. Even the strange and unusual find love too and I like to pretend I live it.
I love to sing and have been known to play bass guitar from time to time. I do spend a lot of time helping out at the school my children attend. I love to play and what better way than to run wild with the minds of an elementary school. I love to create new things and bring happiness into the classroom. Although I could swear sometimes the teacher’s wish I didn’t cause chaos from time to time. Outside of school I spend a lot of time watching my kids play sports, yes I’m a soccer mom! I love it!
