Serena Sykes just discovered that the mother, identical twin sister, and niece she never knew existed…are the last remaining witches on the planet. That is, except for Serena, who recently received her own limited, albeit wildly erratic supernatural abilities.
But her newfound family isn’t interested in helping her master those gifts. After all, Serena’s mother has been communicating beyond the veil with the first witch in their line, a sorceress named Zephora who hopes to return to this dimension and destroy an ancient curse that would unleash paranormal creatures across the globe.
To help guide her in this new landscape, Serena turns to her grandmother, an elderly woman suffering from dementia and the only vampire in existence, a man who has his own mysterious agenda. With less than 48 hours to prevent her family from triggering a supernatural wasteland, Serena must learn to control her abilities…if she hopes to save the world!
My Review: Serena just got a boat load of information thrown at her. She now has powers, she has a family, her family is a long line of witches, and things are just going to get complicated.
Serena can't let her mum help Zephora get into this world. Can't let her unless this wicked plan and watch it create a mess in this world. Nope, so it's up to her to stop them. She only has two days to figure out how to control her powers and actually use it right.
Serena never imagined this for her life, but by the end of it, it was the best thing ever. I loved watching Serena grow into her powers. Learning how to use them and over come everything. She is a tough character and easy to love. You will go crazy at the twists and surprises, but that just made the story even better. The author had a way of taking you into the story and keeping you there until the very lat word. An amazing must read book!
