Where do you go when your heart has been ripped out?
For Anna there is only one answer; into her past, where the truth about her mother, her power, and her real identity lie hidden.
But as Anna delves deeper into her history, she begins to fear that the truth about what set her mother running may be darker than she ever suspected. With the witches of the world on the brink of war, Seth gone, and her friend Abe wanting more from her than she can possibly give, Anna is in crisis.
As the clouds around her gather, Anna is torn between friends, family and rival tribes of witches and – at the last – between love and magic.
What I thought:
And this series come to a close! Thankfully, everything gets wrapped up, which is what I was hoping for. We also finally find out more about Anna’s past, her mom, and what she needs to do. If you liked the first two books, definitely finish the series!
Anna finally does embrace her magic side and becomes stronger, but there are still a few parts in this book where I thought she was making stupid decisions. For instance leaving her loved ones to go away so they wouldn’t get hurt, but you can guess that they did anyway. And she keeps doing it, thinking she’s doing them a favour! Her selfless-ness was probably a good thing for a character to have, but she does it so much that it was annoying after a while, and kind of expected too.
The action and magic use and fighting was awesome though! I loved that some words were included for some of the spells, and although I have no idea how they were pronounced it was still fun! This part is what made the book so awesome, even with the main character issues. But in the end I still found myself wanting to keep reading and although Anna had some bad moments, I still enjoyed most of her journey.
This series was fun and full of magic and adventure, and I really enjoyed it. I just wish Anna was a little bit different at times, and there wasn’t so much romantic tension because she doubts herself or other people and doesn’t know what she really wants. Anyway, go check out this series!
