Glory is from a family of witches and lives beyond the law. She is desperate to develop her powers and become a witch herself. Lucas is the son of the Chief Prosecutor for the Inquisition—the witches’ mortal enemy—and his privileged life is very different to the forbidden world that he lives alongside.
And then on the same day, it hits them both. Glory and Lucas develop the Fae—the mark of the witch. In one fell stroke, their lives are inextricably bound together, whether they like it or not . . .
I wanted very much to have this book take me away like another Harry Potter. The premise and description were intriguing and witch books being my thing, I dove right in. Let me start out by saying this book was a challenge. It was a very slow read and I found myself getting extremely bored and anxious. I wanted more of a hook and was a bit disappointed. This book requires patience and is not a quick read.
What I liked:
The witch story line was interesting, as was the modern day Inquisition.
What I didn't:
The story fell flat. There was no hook to grab the reader and at over 400 pages, I felt myself growing irritated and had to put the book down.
