Review: The story takes place in Salem with a family line of witches with strong magic, the Proctor family. I did find the beginning of the book took off really fast as we got a glimpse of the twins Jillian, or as she is referred to throughout the book as Jilly and Caroline. We learn how they first came into their magic at age 13. Caroline really struggled with the fact of being a witch and decided she didn't want any part of it which made the girls drift apart.
The book did a couple more jumps through the years until we arrived to the present day and met William, who is an amaranthine, he lives forever. I liked the girls right away but there is just something about William that I don't like, feel like he is keeping something more from Jilly.
The writer put a lot of thought into the witchcraft and spells, which were really interesting to read as they trained to fight off an evil character after them. I also love how it was part of everyday life, nothing hidden from most people. This was a really quick read but a really enjoyable story. It was pretty low key on the love scenes, YA novel.
If you want a fun series to read check out Mark of the Witch! I am looking forward to the next book, I have heard will be out this fall/winter!
