I absolutely loved the first book and was looking forward to reading this one. I actually reread book 1 to make sure I was refreshed on all that transpired.
I want Callie back from book 1. I felt that this woman who inhabited her body in this book, did not do her justice. I am supposed to believe that this is an intelligent woman. NOT!!! This Callie seemed like she didn’t have a mind of her own. I understand that all of this is new to her, but goodness, she supposedly studied some of this stuff before she even knew she was a witch. Oh, and why oh why, did she have to be attracted to every new man that crosses her path? Desperate much.
Overall, though I did think it was pretty good, but this story is almost too similar to Deborah Harkness’ series, A Discovery of Witches.
~Both characters work at a college, where the find out what they are
~Both lost their parents when they were young
~Both were warded by their parents to hold in their power
It’s like someone gave them a list of things and said write a story featuring these items and we will see who does it best. Well, I have to say as of this book Deborah Harkness is the winner, but who knows, maybe it will be turned around in the next book of the series.
I am going to faint if it ends up including time travel, because as of now that is the only likeness missing from my list of similarities. .
