How I Got the Book: ARC Copy

Summary of the Book:

Magic has a price—if you’re willing to pay.

Born into a family of powerful witchdoctors, Arrah yearns for magic of her own. But each year she fails to call forth her ancestral powers, while her ambitious mother watches with growing disapproval.

There’s only one thing Arrah hasn’t tried, a deadly last resort: trading years of her own life for scraps of magic. Until the Kingdom’s children begin to disappear, and Arrah is desperate to find the culprit.

She uncovers something worse. The long-imprisoned Demon King is stirring. And if he rises, his hunger for souls will bring the world to its knees… unless Arrah pays the price for the magic to stop him.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This book is just pulled me in and I wanted to know more. Arrah is a wonderful sweet and intense character. The world around her is so interesting and there is otherworldly feeling that made me want more to happen so I did not have to stop reading. I guess the ending came to soon for me. It did not help her that her mother kept a very close eye on her and wanted her to fulfill the family legacy and she just kept failing at things. When kids start disappearing she has to do something about and goes on a dark routine to help so much about her world comes to the surface and she realizes there is more to her life and her world then she ever new.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
