Thanks for writing such a great review. I was going to dismiss this book as just a YA novel, but you speak so highly of how much it interested you and might be appealing for adult readers as well. I'm going to have to reconsider.

These are my type of books. As ive read in your review, it's the first book and just 212 pages. I wonder, is it a cliffhanger? I am so excited to read this!

Congrats on the great review! This seems like an interesting book! I liked the mention about it having 'appropriate' descriptions. I think I'll enjoy reading it! Some fantasies are fantastic!

Sounds very interesting! A bit cliche maybe, but as long as it's written well that's okay. Good job on the review!

To me, it felt a lot different than anything I had came across. It was written well! Thanks!

I like books about witches and the paranormal. I hadn't heard of this book before reading your review. I think it sounds I testing and will have to add it to my TBR. Thank you for the review.

Writing young adult material is always a challenge. On the one hand, you need to appeal to the young reader. This can often involve large emotional swings. On the other side is the struggle to become an adult and control those same emotions. Sounds like the author did a good job. Thanks for the review.
