Uncontrolled magic can kill but it may also save people in Columbus. But, this story is more than just magic, though it is magical! Family, friendships, desires and so much more come into play as Brittany tries to figure out her place in life and her magical abilities. Her struggles to be independent are combined with her desire to be part of a coven. Her natural magical abilities are at direct odds with her knowledge. The new threat in Columbus is actually hundreds of years old. If this sounds confusing, it isn’t. The characters come to life and are easily likeable. Brittany and Everett have a special relationship that is hard to exactly explain. However, both characters grow and expand as the story evolves. This is a spin off book from another series but definitely stands on its own even though the other series bleeds into this one. I enjoyed this book without having read the other series. I was left wanting more so I can’t wait to read the next book. This is a terrific paranormal story that young and old can enjoy.
