Silver Mountain is more than just a small rustic town tucked within the evergreen pine forest. It’s a supernatural hotspot–a nexus of raw energy hidden within the forest.
In the seventeenth-century, an all-powerful witch called Rionach the Dark ruled the Celtic nations with an army of enslaved werewolves. In order to restore balance between Light and Dark, the Trinity of Light was summoned to vanquish the Dark Witch and end the Battle of the Dark Ages.
Seventeen-year-old Quinn Callaghan lives in the small, rustic town of Silver Mountain. Its location may be rural, but it is home to an ancient pine forest that surrounds a supernatural hotspot–a nexus of raw and powerful energy.
When a charismatic witch from Ireland, and a mysterious guy with a secret of his own are drawn to the area, Quinn finds out that she inherited her rare abilities from a revered ancestor. Could it be that she shares a bloodline with the Original Trinity? Nearly 300 years later, the Darkness is returning to Silver Mountain, and the Trinity must stop it.

Quinn lives in the small town of Silver Mountain. Her mother told her that she is a witch but then tragically dies. But Quinn is doing pretty well with her father and her best friend, Annabelle. But then one day a stranger comes into her favorite coffee shop and makes her paranormal senses go wild. Quinn wants to know more about the brooding young man and why he sets her off. But Wren is just the first step in the battle with an ancient evil to come. I loved this story. Quinn is so realistic, a great kid but has things she is working with like trying to control her abilities. Annabelle is a great friend and I felt bad when she had to stay behind to stay safe. Wren is the good looking stranger and I was afraid that there was going to be another insta-love thing going on but I was so happy when it didn’t happen. This is a great YA paranormal/fantasy story and my first from Brittany Elise. I love the world building and how everything was coming together. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series and see what Quinn and Wren get up to next. I can’t wait to read more from Brittany Elise. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
With magical chills, thrills and mystery, this read pulls in and produces a solid adventure for fans of YA supernatural excitement. Quinn is a witch, and the only supernatural in the small town. With the death of her mother, she has no one to look to for guidance but does pretty well on her own thanks to a loving father and a super best friend. All's normal in Quinn's life...as long as she doesn't accidentally touch someone's blood and receive a vision about their future...until another supernatural walks into her favorite coffee shop. There's something strange about him, and she's determined to figure out what especially since he attends her high school and won't leave her alone. But the mystery surrounding him isn't her only problem. Thanks to her vision, she has to decide whether to hide and keep her powers at bay, or use them to help someone and risk more than she's ready to. From the first page on, this story grabs and sits. Quinn is a lovely girl, who is unsure of herself yet very down-to-earth and likable. She's kind, not a complete push-over, and not a looser or misfit either. She's very easy to relate to and keeps a fairly level head. The characters surrounding her are supportive and have their own personalities, while others are cliche. But it works out wonderfully to bring across a pretty convincing high school social life. There's a wonderful thread of mystery from the very beginning, and while some things are somewhat predictable, others weave through unexpected places. It's not action pure but still holds a great pace as the author allows the characters to develop while keeping the surrounding questions in a wonderful state of tension. While it take a bit for the 'evil' to appear and it was as intense as I expected, it was wonderfully paced and lays the ground well for the next book in the series. Fans of witches, werewolves and things that go bump in the night mixed with teenage life in all of its drama and extremes will enjoy this read. And I can't wait to see where book two will take Quinn and her friends next. I received a complimentary copy, was surprised how much I enjoyed reading this book, and decided to leave my honest thoughts.
