it was amazing

Syd's story continues in book two with her having progressed from the weird kid to a girl with her own "posse" of friends and not one but two boys in the wings. However when Syd thought she had problems because she had no friends, she finds popularity breeds another kind of problem. Syd is still fighting who she really is but the battle has become more external this time. For the first time Syd is offered a way to be "normal" by turning her back on who she is. But Syd's strong family loyalty puts her at odds with her own need for normalcy. She realises being just like the other kids comes with a price and also does not mean your own problems disappear. Throw in the problem of finding two boys interested in her and her life becomes a series of twists and turns.
This is the second book in a series but is a book on its own. Syd's voice is the strong thread that binds the whole story. Her views on life shade the story and her own personal battles are spun out into a family battle. Syd really starts coming into her own in this book. She is becoming the independent individual she fights to be. But Syd is also realising that the people we choose to love and fight for can shape one as much as your own identity does. The story bolts into a climax that will have your heart racing as everything is thrown at Syd and her family in an age old battle between good and evil. Patti Larsen pulls you into the story of The Hayle Coven that is as multi-layered as her characters are. In this book you start finding out more of who the Hayles really are. The story is now no longer just Syd's story but the story of her family, the Hayles. Blend this in with a romantic triangle and a constant battle of wills in each of the characters and you have the batter for a delicious story of magical intrigue.
Will Syd choose her own need for normalcy over family loyalty? Will Syd choose the normal boyfriend over the magical one? Read this second book in The Hayle Coven Novels to find out.
