This is a brilliant foray into paranormal romanceand Wiccan practices. This stunning beautiful masterpiece drew me in from thefirst page as the book touched on many aspects of my solitary Pagan path. Theauthor is a practicing Wiccan; her book introduced the reader into thedifferent facets of the Wicca religion. Basic concepts were touched upon in thebeginning of the book, weaving the Wiccan element with romance masterfully. Itwas a refresher on some of my own practices so I enjoyed it immensely. Some ofthe things that were shared in the book were astral travel, tarot cards, spellcrafting, Book of Shadows, the God and Goddess, reincarnation, and Summerland.It’s almost like you are actually reading a Book of Shadows in the beginning.
The average reader may be put off at first withthe alternative religion references but if they have an open mind, they willthoroughly enjoy the flow of the book. As the story continues, you find yourselfreally rooting for Trenton and Cassie’s budding romance and feeling pity forthe villainess.
This is granted a 5 fairy rating for the blend ofromance, Wiccan practices, and paranormal. I am highly anticipating the nextbook in the series.
