Love is a curse when you’re a witch.


I thought witches were myth—until I moved to a secret town protected by magic. Turns out I’m a witch, and my powers will awaken on my nineteenth birthday.

I’m sent to a magic academy, where I’ll learn about the coven and prepare to meet our goddess. It’s there that I meet Lucas, a sexy warlock with an attitude. I shouldn’t be attracted to a guy like him, but he’s a puzzle I can’t figure out—and I find that beyond irresistible.

But there’s more on my mind than Lucas. If I don’t pass the goddess’s test to awaken my magic, I’ll be banished from the coven—and lose the only family I have left.


I wasn’t supposed to inherit death magic, but here I am. They call me the Reaper’s Apprentice. I’m tasked with carrying the last thoughts of the dead to the afterlife when I die. It’s a burden that grows heavier by the day.

Most thoughts are more depressing than I care to admit… except for one. I don’t know what it means, until Nadine shows up in town. She’s the one ray of hope to an otherwise dark gift, and I quickly find myself falling for her.

But we can’t be together—because there’s a curse upon all reapers, and if Nadine falls for me, she’ll die.


Magic, romance, and adventure collide in this spell-binding new adult urban fantasy series featuring witches, demons, and reapers! Cast spells, brew potions, and fall in love with sexy warlocks at Miriam College of Witchcraft.

Fantastic and only gets better from here!

I was in the mood for a youthful refreshing read for the fall and this was more than I was expecting. You should know that this book contains a more adult nature… and I probably wouldn’t recommend it to someone too young. Knowing that, this series dives into what young adults in college behave like and and it was refreshing to say the least.
Immediately went on to read the rest of the series that are published.

So good

I loved it. It shocked me when they went skinny diving but i got used to it. And just a warning they mention sex a lot. Not for young kids. But great for teens and tweens.

Not a good YA

I thought it was a YA novel, but I was proved wrong when the author decided to write more of a smut storyline. Plus there’s a lot of language in it that I personally don’t think a person aged 12-18 should read, especially if they’re younger. It was good, the plot was good just the way it was worded in some parts was bad.
