Patrick Swayze and Baby

Action, plot twists, and finally romance for Jackson and Bettina. Love all the pop culture references they make me chuckle. Please never put that Baby in the corner. Clever and unexpected twists with Tim and B's parents. There were a lot of plot threads left from previous books most were woven together. Couple left though. What was Joseph's trying to accomplish with the dark magic and what actually happened to Tim in the old lands? And to be nitpicky why did Hope have be a

Chandelle really brought out all the big guns with this one. Once you start reading this book, you will lose yourself in the story. The emotions, the mystery and the magic will draw you in and leave you breathless and gasping wanting more. It's just amazing how each and every character has grown through each and every book that I now feel like a part of the Coven and a member of the family. I really enjoyed seeing the Tennessee from the very first book. While I know that he has been through a ...more
***** 5 Awesome Stars *****

It's hard to believe that B's season is over. I know she and Jackson will be back in the next set of The Coven series, but still. I absolutely love everything about these stories. I say it over and over again. Action packed, cool magic, loads of characters you can't help but love, these books have it all. Great wrap up to this storyline and nice lead in to next. Can't wait!

100% Recommend!

Best book Chandelle has written so far!

This ending was epic! Chandelier loved how you added stuff in this one that we discussed in your Facebook group. I laughed out loud so many times! In this book Bettina really comes into her own. Even though by the end of the book she still doubts herself, however I love that because it makes her more human. I can relate to her better. Bettina & Jackson finally get to see each other after learning they are soulmates. Jackson's reaction is priceless! The

Questions finally answered...Amazing!!!

I've said this time and time again, Chandelle is by far one of my favorite authors. She delivers such amazing stories each and every time. I'm really going to try to do this with little to no spoilers. This book literally picks up where we left off in the last story. Jackson discovers his mate is in Eden but he has no idea who it is. But we do #Bettson. There are so many different twist and turns in this book, that at times you may feel like you're in an

Sit down and put on your seatbelt, you are about to go on a ride! The action starts with the first page and continues to build. This is the fifth book in The Coven: Academy Magic series. Each book has been leading to this point.

Jackson is about to meet his soulmate. He really wanted it to be Bettina but since she doesn’t have a glyph, it couldn’t be her. He will

“Spellbinding ” “Powerful” “Shocking” “United” That is the Coven. Chandelle LaVaun has created a series that I could say is like A cross between Mortal Instruments and Shadow Hunters with a pinch of Harry Potter. However I really believe she has created something so unique of her own that it stands out on its own merit. It’s one of the few series that had me waiting in anticipation and I got so excited when a new book came out that I needed to inhale it there and then. The concluding book of ...more

What a book! A brilliant ending to the season but definitely not the end. Chandelle has a way of creating perfection in her characters and story that will have you stuck in the covens world for weeks. There is absolutely nothing I could say that could give this book the justice it so deserves. It's a perfect book! The story ends in a beautiful way where you feel millions of emotions. The way chandelle has built this story up, creating so many characters you'll love and endless possibilities for ...more

******** May Contain Some Spoilers ********

I will try my absolute best to keep spoilers to a minimum or completely out of my review. Sometimes it can be hard to do so.

Holy monkey babies! I'm flabbergasted. Chandelle always has the most amazing storylines, but this one is special. Chandelle went above and beyond any expectation I had for this book. Emotions run extremely high. The whole Bettina and Jackson had me so
The Secret Witch was everything I wanted and hoped for. I had to read it straight through - I could not put it down, and had to reach for a handful of tissues several times. As advertised it really was epic: it had everything you could want in a finale - adventure, friendship, loyalty, family, tears and heartbreak and of course mystical, magical, heartstopping battle scenes with all forms of magic.

This was also a satisfying confirmation of Bettina and Jackson's romance story arc. By the end I

Epic finale

Wow what a final book. This author always takes us on an emotional rollercoaster but this time wow just wow. This book had so many ups and downs I would be laughing at something funny with tears still running down my face from the previous scene that had me crying. I absolutely loved this story every book has been well written with a story that just kept me turning the page, and eagerly awaiting the next book. This one took it to the next level the way the story was finished was

I was overwhelmed by this book

I was given this book for free and here is my unbiased review. There are a handful of story tellers out there that are able to hold you spell bound in a book. This Author is one of them. She has been weaving her spell from Book 1 leaving intricate details throughout the series making us pant with anticipation. All the questions answered and everything revealed it was a master piece in it's creation. Bettina was strong, courageous and clearly a super witch. I enjoyed

This is a MUST READ!!!

This is the final book in Bettina's Story. If you don't know who Bettina is then please stop and read the first book of Tegan's Story to get caught up.

IF you're caught up in the series and you want clues as to what will happen or want to know if it is an EPIC finale, let me just say...YES YES YES!!!! Just like Harry Potter this is a book I will be re reading forever, Chandelle did it all for us, she filled in the blanks, surprised us and gave us happy tears because let's be

So, so amazing!

Bettina and Jacksons story continues with The Secret Witch and it is EVERYTHING I thought it would be and so much more! It is definitely one heck of an absolutely freaking amazing and completely addicting ride and I could not get enough. My emotions were seriously all over the place with this one and I loved every minute of it. These two are so perfect together and have been through a lot as has the coven and I just adore how they are all fiercely loyal and protective of each

HEA & Adventure

Ugh... this book! Such a beautiful ending for Bettina & Jackson before season 3. Since Chandelle has graciously stated The Coven will be continuing their exploits in a third season I am over the moon happy to waiting to read more about their adventures. I love these characters so so much and I’m not ready to say goodbye to them!
If you haven’t yet, I highly recommend reading The Coven series to learn more about the High Priestess and Emperor and their journey to self

I really love Jackson and Bettina and have wanted them to find their happy ever after since they first met. They really have had to fight to be together.

This fifth book in the series (and the end of this particular series) really delivers some big surprises. It is sad and uplifting at the same time. The relationships among the characters are what bring such heart to the story.

It really brings closure to the current situation and I am looking forward to the next series that will continue to

Yes yes yes!

What a full circle! These are the type of stories I live for! I love how much this book made me laugh out loud. Not even halfway into the book I was laughing, crying and gasping my nerves were SHOT! I didn’t think I’d be able to handle this book with so many characters but I grew to appreciate each one that’s introduce and I love that this world will continue. I can’t wait to see where the adventure will head to next!

Hope is not lost

Great conclusion to this second set in the series. I am SO in love with these characters. The personalities and dynamics are so amazing. Some time I feel like I am stuck mid mind between Teagan and Bettina. I can see some of it coming, and I am just sitting back and waiting for it to unfold to see if I fit all the pieces together right. This series has mystery, action,drama... it hits you in ALL the FEELS!!! Can't wait for the next set in this series!!!!

Wow when Chandelle said this was her longest book she wasn’t kidding. Wow so many emotions packed into one book and I’m so happy I’m here for it. Started the Elemental Magic series in April when I was on maternity leave and was immediately hooked. Sucked that it took B and Jackson so long for their HEA but I’m an instant love kinda girl- like Teagan and Tenn. Loved everything about it.

WOW what an epic finale!!! This series has been incredible. You have Bettina our kick ass heroine and Jackson our swoon worthy hero who have nothing but problems to face but hey that’s life I guess!! There’s Angels and demons, witches and magic, romance, revenge and so much emotion that you will find yourself laughing and crying and if you haven’t read this series yet then why not???

Excellent ending to Season 2

She has done it again. Another enthralling episode (or several depending on your perception) for the Coven. Several big reveals happen and most are things readers have been attempting to figure out for awhile (at least one since early season 1). Greatly looking forward to what happens in the next season and whose story is primary.

Im giving this book five stars! Chandelle never disappoints! This series just keeps getting better and better!

It made my day reading this!!

OMG... all wrapped up with a bow, but so much more to know... what’s gonna happen with our soulmate couples, when is death and the tower coven members coming... hope is not lost... I need another box of tissues and a restart on the book... you cannot put this down.

Absolutely love it !!!!

I love the last book!!! The Haven and Hope part was a bit confusing, but I loved how it ended!!!! I suspected that Tennessee was Haven before this book, so I’m glad I’m right. I’m also kind of curious: did Emersyn and Deacon finish their soulmate paring? Cause technically, they met each other earlier than Bettina(Hope) and Jackson.

This is my favorite book of Chandelle's entire series. Oh my, with all the hidden past's secrets coming out. I had to re-read several parts over and over to make sure it all fell into the right places of my brain. This wrapped up so many little plots with full satisfaction but left us ready for the next chapter to start. A must read for fans of this full series.

Ohhh my God! This book was the most emotional book ever I think. I can't even imagine! Gut-wrentching tragedy of a family. I'm so happy to get my theories proven right! Chandelle you know how to put our emotions through the ringer! But so worth it!!! I'm so excited to see what else comes from this world of The Coven.
