From the very beginning I was captured with the story. You have two young women who seem normal but there is more to them than just being a female. They are a bit different than other people. There is something in the air with them, and people can see it or feel it radiating off of them.  For some reason they can get men to be tempted by them by just walking on by. Devan and Janesa became friends in school, and they are inseparable. If you see one then the other one is close by. They can not find happiness with others. The girls get jealous, the boys stick around until Devan or Janesa dump 'em. It's a cycle but one that you see both of the girls constantly struggling with.  Now you do get thrown in the past by letters that get read. These letters are important because you find out who Devan and Janesa are related to. Now while reading the letters it got kind of boring for me, even though I knew the letters were giving me information. I got a bit bored reading about who was marrying who, this one had a child or 8 children. This person died. And I really did get the significance of it all but I started to lose my interest.  The author did do a good job bringing the present and past together. There were no gaps or trying to figure anything out. I can say the twist involved that Devan and Janesa are a part of I didn't even see that coming and it was pretty cool how it all played out. The ending wasn't much of what I was expecting. There is a fight scene or a magical fight scene how ever you want to see it. I expected more of a BAM! Not a simmer of something. The girls have to end what has been started for centuries and the being that they fought has been around for a long period of time. And so I figured more spells or more magic casting something. Not one thing and then it is all hunky dory.  Overall a really good witch story. The story draws you in and keeps you wanting to find out who Devan and Janesa are or at least what they are. I do like this author's writing style and how she can tell  a story so I will be keeping an eye on her for future books.

Do two halves really make a whole? Two families joined together by a single moment in history, separated for over four hundred years. Both families being watched over by employees of a hypercritical woman, for generations upon generations and why?  Because they possess a gift that she wants to extinguish.  Mystery, revenge, anger, and confusion possess these two families for over four hundred years and threaten to continue. That is, until Devan and Janesa become best friends in high school. That is when weird events become apart of their lives. Clueless to what is going on Janesa and Devan are imparted upon the knowledge of their past, by the very man who during this generation is supposed to find them and eliminate them before they reproduce any more heirs to their gift. Nick, though hired to follow and eliminate these two girls, wonders if they are really as bad as all the files he has been given from the past  four hundred years states. Going against his employer Nick hands over the files to Devan to help her understand what has been happening to her and her best friend and maybe even why.   Told from the present with Janesa and Devan ,as well as letters from the file from over the past decades their story unfolds in front of your eyes. Leaving you to wondering as to why these two families are followed so thoroughly and make your own decisions as to what is good and evil.  A great story for those of you whom love a mystery, witches, and suspense.
