Hello everyone and welcome to my stop on the Elements of Power Blog tour. You can also find my bookstagram post over on my instagram page. Make sure you check out the bottom of this post for a GIVEAWAY!
Lets get into it!
About the Book:
The Council of the Harvest Moon was established to maintain peace among thewitches, fairies, vampires, and mermaids of the United States. However, old feuds diehard and as the powers of fairies wane with the destruction of natural environments, thewitches rise with a rigid societal structure designed to assert their supremacy as themost powerful supernatural beings in the modern world.
As the descendant of two prominent New England witching families, Khlorie Lethestone’s life was destined to fit intothe neat, color-coded boxes established by the American Continental Coven (ACC). When it is discovered that Khlorie has powers beyond that of a typical witch, she is sent to Spindlewick College, a secret institution designed to help witches develop non-conforming gifts into tools for the greater good of witching society. Once there, she meets the attractive, but distant Perry Prentice, who is assigned to help her understand her gifts. But becoming one of the most powerful witches in the world means that you are watched closely, and Khlorie learns that there are secrets she must keep hidden to survive.
This isn’t like other witch books. Instead you have a world where witches and such are known. There is a rule of law as well as an underground. We start the book with a girl who just wants to know her future. We can all relate to that! From there we go on an adventure where neither us nor Khlorie knows who to trust. There are tons of twists and turns. Add in magic and a small amount of swoon and this was a good read.
The book itself isn’t too long and therefore lends to a nice easy read. The plot isn’t hard to follow either and you find yourself more enjoying choosing who to trust instead of trying to figure out the world building.
Overall I enjoyed this book and think any fantasy lover would find it a good read.
