Book Description:

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.
 
My Thoughts:
 
I wasn't sure if I would like this book or not in the first couple of pages, but, the more I read, the more the story grew on me and I found myself rooting for Syd and hoping somehow she would find peace or at least a way to live her life the way she wants to some degree.
 
I think all of us don't want to be told what to do or whom we have to marry, so it was a shock for Syd to find out things had been promised when she was just a baby and she wonders why on earth her mother would honor such a commitment that was made a long time ago, especially to a family that left the coven in disgrace the last time!
 
If you love YA Fantasy, this book is going to be right up your alley! It's packed with drama and everything flows, so that the story is told in a way to make you believe it and want to keep coming back for more. 
 
This book is Book 1 in the series, so I am hoping I get to read the rest of this series because I really loved all the characters and now I am hooked and what to know what happens to them!
 
Happy Reading!

This sounds like a good read. I like that she wants to be "normal" but, in the end, must fulfill her families heritage. :)
