Merry is an average teenager.
She’s also a witch. She is trying not to be, but she is. Then Jack comes into her life and she can’t help falling under his spell. One problem – he’s part of an evil, centuries-old curse that Merry now has to break. If Merry has lost her heart, will she lose her life too? Or can true love’s kiss save the day?
Being a witch is dangerous – but being in love is even worse.

Wow! What can I say other that WOW to describe this book?
So let me give you some background about this book. First of all there are witches in this book. Not scary-going to scary your children type of witches, but rather, I-wish-I-was-a-witch-this-is-so-cool type of witch. There is also a great love story in this book.
Meet Merry, short for Meredith, who just like the rest of us during high school, is trying to be normal and get through the day. Leo, is her beloved older brother who lives to protect his sister and Gran, the grandmother. Merry cursed since the day of her birth, learns after years of secrets that she must face a true evil. No one else can face this evil but her, no matter what she tries to do.
Faced with unexplainable evils that want to cause her and the rest of the world pain, Merry must decide what to do. With limited knowledge about the situation, limited magical ability and a mother who is more absent than good, Merry is on her own.
This book is filled with love but not a sappy kind of love, but a love that makes your heart melt. The writing in this book is great. With the potential of spoilers and unwarranted knowledge in the book that makes you think that will ruin the rest of the book for the reader, sisters Elizabeth and Katharine Corr do a splendid job in balancing a book to make sure that you get just enough information and not enough to make sure that readers continue to read the book.
If you like suspense, witch craft, an epic across the centuries love story and a sibling relationship that will make your heart bleed, than this is the book for you.
Go out and do yourself a favour and get a copy of this book and if you are anything like me, you will finish this book in 3 to 4 days. This is an epic book and I can’t wait for the next one.
I give this book 4.7 out of 5 booky stars!
