For a series foundation book, I thought it did a really good job setting the stage for the story to come. I really like the characters and I like the setting...Rome! There were some deep and well written philosophical parts to the story concerning the battle between light and dark...the author told that story in an exciting scene in the book and it worked well for me. I can't decide if I'm team Lennox or team Ballard, but I want them both to be in Halsey's life. I want to see Halsey's story ...more

I just read this. It's sort of a blend between supernatural romance books––Twilight, etc.––and the way Young Adult novels––Harry Potter––are written. It's kind of slow to begin, but then it just picks up, up, up! I loved it!

Also, a sequel is in the works, which promises more magic and supernatural surprises! Five stars.

I thought the story line was really good I like that she was kind of on a hunt to solve a mystery about herself. I wished that there was a little more detail about her discovering who she was and what her powers were. Other than that it was a decent read.

2.5 so round up to 3.
Overall review: Meh. The book had a stellar plot line idea but had an iffy execution of it. There were major plot holes as parts of the story were not clearly explained.
The writing was less than stellar. It seemed juvenile to an extent but the author did have some redeeming excerpts. I found the author to be.. What's the word... philosophical? No, thought provoking at points in the story, however these points were too few and far between for my taste.

There were redeeming

Half of the first page hooked me. I'm in love with this story and I'm only on page 5! Wow...I want to speed read and slowly savor each page at the same time.

As I said, I was hooked from the first page. I found Halsey and her friends and frenemies to be quite believable. I truly appreciated and enjoyed the lack of swearing and the fact that the focus was on the story and not on trying to make every encounter sexual.

The Wiccan Diaries stays true to the Wiccan beliefs (as so far as they get into
