I am voluntarily submitting my honest review after receiving an ARC of this ebook via NetGalley. In this unusual book, we meet Megge, a 6-year old girl born into a gifted family of healers with paranormal talents. Megge, frightened by powers she doesn't fully understand, has refused her place among these unusual women, unknowingly placing their future in grave danger. Megge is our narrator as we join her in her struggle to come to terms with who and what she and her family are, as well as their place in a community that both needs them and fears them. The author weaves a spell of her own as the story contains multiple subplots as we learn the family's history. Unfortunately, the pacing of the story suffers as a result, with the plot unfolding very slowly throughout the beginning and middle of the book, then rushing to a conclusion that unfolds almost too quickly. While much is revealed about the other characters, at the end of the novel, I felt that I still knew very little about Megge herself in comparison. Witchcraft is a major focus of this book, so be forewarned that suspension of belief is a must for enjoying this book. While I did not especially like this book, I think fans of fantasy and coming of age / young adult fiction would be interested in this series.
