Mara Pryce never imagined that her life was anything but normal and then a strange gray-eyed young man appears at her graduation. When he vanishes without a trace, she’s convinced he’s a figment of her imagination. Then he appears again and shatters her whole world.
Mara is an enchanter, part of an ancient line of Wiccan power, and a war is raging—one of good and evil—between the Enchanted and the Iniquitous.
The Iniquitous want her dead and it’s Theodore’s job as her protector to keep her safe.
When Mara and Theodore arrive at a safe house, where Mara will remain hidden while learning about her powers, they find that the real threat might be a little closer to home than they want to believe.

My First ARC!! How exciting *mini gush moment*
I was so craving a romance when this book came in, which is crazy because I don’t even really care for romance like that? And it doesn’t hurt that the cover
models attracted my eyes. Now, I wasn’t expecting my mind to be blown, but I was expecting to enjoy it. Which I did (yay! 🙂 ).
Keeping it short: Mara, after graduating, finds out she’s a chosen one destined for something great. Her protector takes her away to come into and train her powers because the Inquitious want her dead. If you’re here for a romance, I feel you’ll like it, though the drama over why they couldn’t get together does get tedious after a while. But, I did like the two characters Mara and Theodore.
Despite the fact that she is the “chosen one”, Mara isn’t just all perfect and good at what she does right off the bat. She puts in work which is a breath of fresh air. Her voice was also very likable and she was quite funny, making me chuckle on a few accounts, but there was too many uses of the word ‘cackling’. I mean, EVERYBODY was cackling, no one ever just… laughed. Theodore was also okay, but again, his whole logic on “we can’t be together so I’m going to be hot and cold’ was annoying at time. However, despite his inconsistent moods, you can never doubt that he cares and loves Mara. Of course, there was the cliched mean girl after the love interest, but it wasn’t enough to get on my nerves.
I think my biggest problem was the fact that she’s dating someone, yet they kiss on more than one account. I mean, I feel she would’ve definitely left her boyfriend if Theo wasn’t being all wishy washy. They did Winston dirty- I actually liked him . Overall, it was a fun read with a pretty cover to quench my romance thirst (damn I’m dramatic today).
