The Embrace Series, #1

Embrace is a fast paced, heart pounding, magical story. I haven’t read many books that center around witches especially male witches but I can tell you that I want to read more of them now.

This story was very well written in my opinion. There is just enough mystery to keep you guessing and the relationships between all the characters was amazing. I also thought the author did a great job describing the magic and spells that the group used. Some books just throw you into so much that I tend to get lost so the little “lesson” in the middle of the book was great. I could really get a feel for the type of witchcraft they were using. The story was so intricate that I have to say I never saw the twist coming and that is huge! I would have never pinned the villain on who it actually was and I thought that whole twist was brilliant.

The characters were amazing as well. I really loved that they all cared for each other and looked out for one another. The romance was very sweet between Madison and Issac. I appreciated that the author made a point to have Madison question her love for Issac seeing as how they barely knew each other. That to me was a very mature thing to do and I am glad that it was in the story

This was an awesome debut! I have been in a YA slump lately and Embrace was just the book to pull me out of it! I really enjoyed this story and I am really hoping that there will be a sequel!
