Synopsis:

A demigod who can kill with a touch. It’s an ability that must be kept secret, even from those trusted most.

Finding out that she was a witch was strange enough, but now Nicole must face the realization that she has the rare power to kill with just a touch. No one can know her secret — not even Blake, who she’s had undeniable chemistry with since first moving to town.

Now Nicole, Blake, and the three others with elemental powers must stop a series of monsters that they previously believed to be dead from rising once again and destroying the mortal world. The creatures they face on this journey will be more dangerous than anything they’ve encountered yet. Will they all survive the quest? And how long will it be until Nicole is forced to use her ability to kill in front of everyone, revealing the true darkness of her powers?

Review:

Ugghh.. this would not end. It took forever to finally get to the point. It wasn’t boring, just really long. Honestly, so much happens that I caught myself wondering if it was going to drag on to the next one. There are a lot of things that I liked:

No useless secret keeping. I love how Nicole didn’t drag out her secrets for books and books until it piled up and exploded in the final one. This time, the heroine actually got the courage to confess about everything that happened in the last book. Guess what? People didn’t freak out or turn on her. They understood, and we moved on. Freakin Finally. An author who understands how normal brains work.

Nicole and Danielle, two girls who hate each other. Yet, they have a deep conversation about important things, joke and are respectful towards one another. There was no silly accusations about stealing each others man. Like they both understood that everyone made their own decisions and they didn’t need to hate on each other. Again, Freakin Finally. Two mature women having an intellectual conversation. No drama.

Blake not being an annoying male lead who gets hurt and over dramatic over silly things that male leads normally get dramatic over.

So why three stars?

  • Silly plot where the characters are made dumb to miss the obvious only to make Kate look like the intelligent one for getting it.
  • Tooooo loooong
  • The ending was rushed
  • No character growth or development
  • Love whining

Yes, I will be reading the sequel…there’s some evil character that’s about to come and create some trouble..and I’m here for it! Plus, I’m waiting for Hades to make an appearance!!
