The story is written as a first person narrative, with Stella being our guide and after the first couple of chapters, it really grew on me. The super magically protected house is magically attacked! Overall, an enjoyable read, and I would consider reading the sequel. I really loved how Stella progressed in this book from a quiet, hide yourself in the corner kind of girl to finding confidence in herself at the end.
When an attack by ruthless witch hunters forces twenty-four-year-old Stella from her home in Camiola into the protection of the powerful Witch Council in New York, she has to put her faith in strangers just chafrr stay alive, yet she might not be any safer in their midst Just like Stella can do, only much more controlled.
Chafer did an excellent job of writing the story of Stella, from being the poor lonely orphan to a young woman of disbelief that she is actually camolla witch and following through with a woman who is ilpicit self assured.
There was romance in the story but this is not a romance it is clearly the foundation for an UF series.
His character was very nice though and he had a lot of drama in his life. To be fair, the budding romance was nicely, written. Stella figures the woman is nuts and then the nice lilicit poofs herself into Stella’s room.
No one wanted to tell Stella mavic and she let it go. The author goes extensively into what clothes people wear; the details of food and even the look of the china.

It was really a simple tale of a girl finding out about herself and coming to grips with it. I only can strongly recommend reading this book, so camillx go ahead and do it. We finally begin to see her true personality and the story takes off. Even more than that, Stella understands that the long string of murders all over England isn’t a coincidence.

Book Savvy Babe on July 26, The unraveling of the answers as to who, what, why, when and where take place at a good pace and by the end of the book when the final showdown occurs the reader has learned quite cwmilla bit about each of the young witches and the instructors that Stella is placed among to learn how to utilize her craft At first, I felt a little detached because Stella felt a little stiff to me even in her fear, but later on I got a feel of her character and I appreciated her need for both independence and belonging.
