Synopsis:
It’s two weeks before Triss turns 18, and her world is about to change into the most magical one imaginable as she readies herself to enter The Witch Avenue Order... that is until her mother’s disappearance. Instead of celebrating her transformation, she finds herself spreading rose petals into her mother’s empty grave.

When Logan, her best friend from junior high, moves back to town for college, he vows to help her find the answers she so desperately seeks surrounding her mother’s disappearance. As they begin uncovering clues, it becomes apparent that the life of white magic they both grew up loving is not what the majority practices, and their lives are in danger.

With a haunting feeling that her mother may still be alive, she begins to hear a call to the wilderness. Triss realizes that in order to find the answers she needs, she must learn the ways of her ancestors and become the hunter, not the hunted before it’s too late, and she becomes part of the lonely souls.

Review

A teenager losing a mom just right before a very special occasion is no easy feat and this was what happened to Beatrice. She was clueless with what happened, they didn't see the body but they did the funeral service anyway. Lost and in denial, this is when and how her adventures started.

It is a very fast paced book and I love it! It keeps you from getting bored. The author avoided beating around the bush and went straight to the facts. I also love how the author incorporated the teenage love story with the goal of knowing the truth. It was a struggle between giving in to what they feel or putting it aside in search for truth; and using good practices versus black magic.

Logan, Triss' best friend, is just one of the juicy characters. He's funny and sweet and dark thus mysterious and very exciting! I fell more in love as I went deeper into the pit. He's hard to read so you really won't have any idea what's coming. Actually, this goes the same to the whole story and not just to Logan's character.

Triss on the other hand, is very cautious with her emotions. But I really love how her walls tumble down every time she's with Logan. I love that the author did not make, even a shy, the protagonist stupid. She's witty, funny and really honest with her feelings. And they seem to be just the perfect couple

I couldn't help myself somehow relate this to Harry Potter. They use potions and wands and chants, but story is totally different. And again, not a single moment in this book that I got bored.

This book is packed with love, sorrow, happiness and excitement and I can't wait to read the next installment!
