All roads lead to Auburn. Stories about witches have always been an area I've felt conflicted. Mainly, because I'm enormously picky about them, and tend to get irritated at stories created with ridiculous superstitions and stereotypes. The synopsis for this book caught me quickly, and luckily, this book is amazing. I haven't encountered a story of witches quite like this one before, and haven't enjoyed a story about witches as much as this one. Between the completely tragic family dynamic and circumstance, to the fierce personalities of all the characters, there is so much depth to get lost in. There were many main characters, especially with the rotating POV between the mother and daughter duo the story ultimately centers around. While they are the main women telling the story, they aren't the complete focus, which was refreshing. The story revolves around all seven of the mothers and daughters group, and eventually all eight. They each had strong bonds to all the other women, and together, made a group strong enough to take on anything they came up against. The men were also tremendously important, even ones who weren't actually in the story any more. Really, none of the story could have happened without them, and their strength added a bit of grit to the otherwise women-dominated story. I enjoyed the male characters quite a bit, and was glad they were each given such diverse personalities. First and foremost the story is definitely a romance, although it is free of explicit content, which I loved. The paranormal aspect is a close second, and a major element, but the focus definitely seemed to be one several layers and threads of romance going on. It did get quite messy at some points, and wondering when all hell would break lose is a big part of what kept the story going. The pace was set fairly well, although at times it seemed as though we were sped through important junctions, that could have used more color and focus. Overall though, the story was good, and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I can't wait to see what happens in the second book, and hope to read it soon. Either way, I will definitely be reading the rest of the series as soon as I am able to. If you enjoy paranormal romance, this is definitely a series for you. *I was given a complimentary ARC eCopy of this book, from the author, to read in exchange for an honest review. ~Rose @Desert Rose Reviews
