Being the daughter of a Wiccan practitioner has made Alexis Allcroft a social outcast – both in town and in school. Yet she’s done her best to not let this fact get to her. While her insecurities surface at the most inopportune times, she’s determined to walk forth with her head high in hopes of showing her classmates that the things they say don’t bother her. Unfortunately, she realizes that this is easier said than done.

Plagued by dreams she doesn’t quite understand, she starts looking forward to her seventeen birthday. Intent on drawing people’s attentions away from her, she cites a spell that ends up backfiring on her in the process. People’s secrets are shoved into the light – hers, included. Secrets, she soon realizes, that were better left in the dark.

The discovery of several crucial secrets leaves her wondering who she can, and cannot, trust. Even more daunting is the fact that she’s both a vampire and a witch. She finds this fact quite hard to accept. As is the knowledge that she wields a power unlike any other.

When her world is turned upside-down even further, she’s forced to go on the run with her trusty guardian by her side. She’s grateful for his support, even though there’s something about him that she can’t quite explain. Her family’s secrets threaten to engulf her, tearing at the edges of her trust for those she loves. As danger looms around the corner, she comes to understand that blood truly is thicker than water and that family will always be there when you least expect them to be.

I enjoyed this story immensely. The action was fast-paced and keeps a person riveted to the book’s pages. Morrigan and Misty have a unique story-telling style that’s quite invigorating and sets the stage for future books. I look forward to what they have in store next.
