    Such a fantastic story!! You really dig deep into the whole magical world and I absolutely love it. Phoebe is one of three sisters charged with keeping the Book of Sin safe. But when her sister and the book are taken she has to rely on Brandon (I don’t trust him) to get both back. Tons of action. Plus throw in the sexy element and you cannot go wrong!

    I think it is really cool Phoebe can draw her magic off of her dead ancestors. That Magic seems to come in handy more then you think. I got so upset with how alone the girls are. I would have thought that with the council wanting them to protect the book that they would at least call and check on it. Instead they send the special force to spy on them. Also, Their mom had friends but when she died they could have checked on them. I also think that out of all those dead ancestors someone should ha

    I think it is really cool Phoebe can draw her magic off of her dead ancestors. That Magic seems to come in handy more then you think. I got so upset with how alone the girls are. I would have thought that with the council wanting them to protect the book that they would at least call and check on it. Instead they send the special force to spy on them. Also, Their mom had friends but when she died they could have checked on them. I also think that out of all those dead ancestors someone should have been about to help Celeste to begin with. I am glad Phoebe found Brandon. At first I didn't like him at all. He proved himself as the book went on. I am glad he will be around for awhile.

    We went through a lot of stuff in a short amount of time. There was times where I thought Phoebe would have been better off left home. For protection. That she was going to crumble under finding out about the evil Dark Set. As they travel through the mystery of finding her sister and the book. We learn new things that take us by surprise but I think it helped make Phoebe stronger.

    So much going on in this book. There is a lot of story going on in the first few chapters. It gave me a slow start. I think it was just trying to get everything in. Once the story got going it really takes you on a road trip. We learn that no matter what Celeste has her family behind her. Even when it seems she has failed them. I am looking forward to learning about Celeste. I think her story is going to be interesting. Learning how her Magic works and what is going on inside her head. I received this ARC for a honest review.

    Entrusted with a great responsibility the Whelan sisters have dedicated their lives to protecting the Book of Sindal and when one of the sisters goes missing, along with the book, everything changes.

    Even in the face of self-doubt, Phoebe finds the courage to face her fears and finds a strength she didn’t know she possessed. I can’t wait for Rowan’s story in the next installment of this trilogy.

    It was so easy to get lost in the magical realm & to relate to the characters that DG Swank and Alessandra Thomas have created in this book, blended artfully into our own modern day world - this is a must-read paranormal romance!

    Great storyline, action packed with twists and revelations, beautifully written you can't tell it's not written by one author which is amazing!

    I’m like legit stoked for this new series. Took me long enough to read it because I kept going back and rereading it WHILE I was reading it!! I can’t say enough amazing things about this book! I loved how much history you’ve both put into this story. I love the badass women that are the Whelan Sisters.

I love how the different magical talents especially Phoebe’s ancestral magic were explained. The way the magic runs through family lines. This is going to be yet another series that has so much potential beyond a trilogy. I mean, evil never takes a break am I right?! I truly hope this series gets the attention it rightly deserves because I for one definitely want so much more!!!

    Wow! Yet another page turner by Swank! I started reading this while nursing a book hangover from another absolutely fabulous Swank book. Major kudos to both Denise and Alessandra for a fabulous first book in a gripping new series. I admit I was unsure about it because paranormal/urban fantasy isn’t my usual genre but holy cow it was good!

    I quickly felt immersed in the lives of Phoebe, Rowan and Celeste and the mystery surrounding them and the Book of Sindal. I love how different each of the sis

    I quickly felt immersed in the lives of Phoebe, Rowan and Celeste and the mystery surrounding them and the Book of Sindal. I love how different each of the sisters are from one another. Excellent character development and whoa! So. Much. Action!! And, can we talk Brandon for a minute? Phoebe’s high school crush comes back… he’s hot but do I fully trust him? Hmmm

    The book was really hard to put down… I highly recommend this series to anyone that enjoys mysterious paranormal books and witches. For those on the fence about the genre, give it a try!! I think that you will love it!

    My first read from this author is a winner! It had magic and suspense and romance and family and love and so many moving parts that I could never be bored. Phoebe and her sisters have been tasked to protect the Book of Sindal, a book of the darkest of spells. It's a task that has been handed down through generations in her family. If the book were to fall into the wrong hands, the Salem Witch Trials would look like a cake walk. When the book is taken, a blast from the past, her high school crush

    My first read from this author is a winner! It had magic and suspense and romance and family and love and so many moving parts that I could never be bored. Phoebe and her sisters have been tasked to protect the Book of Sindal, a book of the darkest of spells. It's a task that has been handed down through generations in her family. If the book were to fall into the wrong hands, the Salem Witch Trials would look like a cake walk. When the book is taken, a blast from the past, her high school crush, steps in to investigate. Can Phoebe deal with the rising evil, her blossoming feelings for Brandon and her hopes for a future with him, all while trying to protect her sisters? Read the book to find out!

    Do you like feisty witches who battle their urges while not knowing who to trust?

    How do you feel about sexy mages who battle between love and duty?

    Swank created a world of witches and mages and druids and a secret society of magical wonder. Evil was barely touched upon and yet I feel that the groundwork was paved throughout this story. I got a happy for now ending but it was obvious that there was so much more to come. Evil is rising and the Whelan sisters with hottie Brandon have their work cut out for them. I'm excited to see how it all turns out!
