Summary of the Book:
After losing her parents in an accident only she survived, Hannah is desperate for answers. Haunted by the events of that tragic night, she struggles to move on, yearning for some deeper truth about her loss.
But when it comes time to turn a new page and move cross country for college, she vows to leave the past behind. After all, Bellcliff University is a thousand miles away from the ghosts nipping at her heels.
Yet when Hannah accidentally awakens a handsome witch from a hidden cave near campus, she realizes he isn’t the only thing stirring out of slumber. Hannah has roused all magic…including the devil herself.
As if spells, curses, and college jitters weren’t enough, this witch claims to know Hannah from four centuries prior—and their connection is more than casual.
Thrust into a world of sorcery and monsters, Hannah must fight to keep the magic she’d unleashed from claiming a price far too steep for her to pay.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have to say that I enjoy Hannah. She is a character that is herself and she standout from the crowd. She is a young woman who is trying to go to college and dealing with the death of her parents just a year ago. There is magic, school stuff, and a past that just will not rest. She felt a pull that lead her to a cave where a witch is awakened. It is an interest story and a good example of YA Paranormal.
My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
