Every young witch looks forward to her first Solstice Stones. The pride of representing her coven against the warlocks. The rush from her first taste of dark magic.
But a few short minutes into the Stones, and Lily’s lifelong dream turns into a nightmare of pain and regret. Betrayed not once, but twice, her restraint snaps—with dire consequences.
Lily is wracked with guilt and on the run from the powerful Congression, when her broken confidence is further shattered by an ugly secret from the past. As her options dwindle, Lily is forced into a distasteful alliance.
Will she be able to find her way back to the light? Or will darkness consume her before dawn's new day?
Although shorter than the others in this series, I think that this one might have been my favorite in a lot of ways. This book is active fiction, like the others, but is almost two novellas in one. The first section is Lily’s version of events, with choices for you as the reader to make. The second section is Logan’s story, with more choices to make. There is also a third section that is called “Bonus Materials” and it tells Daisy’s story of that fateful night and changes the story entirely so READ THAT, too!
This installment does a lot to answer many of the questions we had during the first two books and sets the stage for more in the ongoing Spellspinner saga. It is such a fun series to read. The active fiction aspect makes it a book that can be reread for a different experience!
Things to love…
- Logan. There is so much to this character, so much depth.
- Lily and Jonah. They are not necessarily what they seem!
- Daisy. I can’t wait for more of Lily’s spunky little sister!
Read the first two in the series, and then indulge in this one!
