This is a very short story, but the author manages to pack quite a bit into a few pages. It is the prequel to a coming series and it was interesting enough that I will definitely by the books when they come out.

My review of this is somewhat mixed. I agree in part with the person that said "the plot is all over the place.... characters are thrown in". When I first started reading this I thought it was so SILLY and sounded SO AMATURE!...... BUT honestly...I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN!!!! There is absolutly NOTHING wrong with this authors writing that a good editor could not fix. The main issue I saw was organization. The story would read smoother if the plot was more organized and not so jerky. However, I imagine that editors are not cheap! Plus the fixes are so minor that it really does not take away from her work. I found even more respect for the author when I read her bio. She really seems to be an "average joe" so to speak. Which is very inspiring. It makes me feel hopeful that I too, could one day write a book. Plus, as an African American I feel proud to see that there are still African American authors who know how to write something other than erotic smut novels. Now I have something to look forward to. Plus, flaws or not, I haven't written the first book! So she's leaps and bounds ahead of me in terms of that. I can't say I would have done any better. I'm looking forward to the continuation of this book. So HURRY UP! Lol

Color me confused...this book started off with promise.  There were so many elements for a great story...death of a family matriarch, unrequited love, a secret child, love that hasn't been revealed, and more.  As the plot began to unfold as characters were revealed, as soon as the supernatural elements were firmly introduced, BAM! The story ended. MIT felt abrupt and incomplete, and I'm hoping that this is a prequel to what will be an amazing read in months to come.

This is all over the place, plot is scrambled, characters tossed in. Overall poorly done. Its a VERY short read that leaves you confused.

Very engaging characters make this story a great read. You want to find out more about the back story which you are given hints about. The story is an exciting mystery and is well written. I can't wait to read the full lenght novel-I certainly hope one will be forthcoming. I also will be looking for other works by this author. I'm always looking for good stories by black authors that incorporate a variety of ethnicities in their characters.
