Book review:

I received the book from the author S. A. Carter and the group We ❤️ YA Books! In exchange for my honest review.
Thanks again for the chance! :D

I always been fascinated by witches and magic and this book deliver!
It's was fun, fast paced and quite enjoyable!

Elena was an awesome character to follow! She was smart, carrying, independent 16th years old girl with some kickass witch powers! I loved her very much ;D
I really liked her relationship with her uncle Jo, her dog Megi and her best friend Phoebs!

What I did miss was more of Elena's school life and the Venator.
A very cool elements to this story was time traveling! Omgosh I loved it so much! Getting back in time and see what Elena experienced it really felt like you were with her! S. A. Carter really got that though with her writing style ;) great job S. A!

There was SO many fun moment through the adventures between Elena and her uncle such as:

“Think Robert Pattinson in the throes of hunger, type of red,’ he says sarcastically, trying to lighten the mood.
I don’t smile. I start to feel sick again. I nod, not knowing what else to say. I wave them off as I head upstairs. Red eyes? Why the bloody hell would my eyes turn red? Am I turning into a vampire?”...

I was laughing out loud xD!

One thing that really had me hooked on this story was the non-romance in it!
I love YA book with romance but in this one I did not miss it AT ALL! It was cool just to read Elena growing up and learn who she was! Well DONE S. A!

Definitely read this book if you are a fan of witches, magic, time travel and just want to read a YA with no romance at first sight ;D.

  3.5/4 stars <3
