Summary of the Book:
Even teenage assassins have dreams.
Eli isn’t just a teenage girl — she’s a made-thing the witches created to hunt down ghosts in the human world. Trained to kill with her seven magical blades, Eli is a flawless machine, a deadly assassin. But when an assignment goes wrong, Eli starts to question everything she was taught about both worlds, the Coven, and her tyrannical witch-mother.
Worried that she’ll be unmade for her mistake, Eli gets caught up with a group of human and witch renegades, and is given the most difficult and dangerous task in the worlds: capture the Heart of the Coven. With the help of two humans, one motorcycle, and a girl who smells like the sea, Eli is going to get answers — and earn her freedom.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This book was more than I expected it to be. I really love Eli and her magical blades. She is a girl who was created by a coven of witches to be the perfect assassin and she has never failed before and now she has the fear of being unmade. I did what more in the description of the world they were in and the story a little more flushed out, but I guess that could happen in the second book in the series. It was well done for a debut novel.
My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
