Mrs. Hall had been Elizabeth’s mother figure and she had loved her and was grieving also. Up until two weeks ago grade eleven had been great. Elizabeth had been at the top of her class, her soccer team had just won their championship, and socially elizabeth was fine. Elizabeth and Gyn did everything together other than sports.

Elizabeth fell in love with William and he with ehr. Elizabeth then learns she is a witch and from the powerful Harlow family. She also learned there are Elders are trying to kill her. She has to meet the Elders and convince them she means no harm to anyone.
I enjoyed reading this book. I loved William and Elizabeth together and how they interacted with each other. I really liked the plot but this did drag for me. At times. I really liked how the author related legends and family histories in this book. I choked up at times and chuckled at times also. While reading this I hated the ending as it was basically a cliffhanger and I hate them!!! This book had: witches, evil elders, murder, danger, first love, going to an international school, a prophecy, power, and romance and so much more. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book. It would have been a 5 if there was no cliffhangers and I do recommend this book as long as you know about the cliffhanger and don’t get disappointed as well as annoyed by it.
