Review- 3 stars
After and event in Merry life she decided to put her magic aside trying to forget about it but of course she can’t do that when she learns that an ancestor made a deal many years ago that now Merry has to practice magic to save the people she loves.
I really don’t know how I feel about this book i have mixed feelings, i felt like a lot of it was repeated and really slow also some bits were unnecessary for me. However i did like Merry’s relationship with her brother Leo who sticks by her even goes past the covern. There mother is always away for work but when she does find out what is happening she is angry about it which is understandable as she didn’t think this would happen.
Merry is like every other teenager except she has magic, I didn’t really like her to be honest with you. Throughout the book we learn that she used her magic the wrong way towards her friends. Leo has his problems to deal with but he is protective over his sister which i did really like, he sticks up for her and helps her with everything. He pushes her with her magic like her Grandma who is the head of the covern.
By the end of this books it is not just Merry that is affected but also Leo. Would I read the sequel to this book? I’m not sure i did like this book but i don’t think i enjoyed it enough, i don’t know i think it is going to depend on my mood when i am buying the book but after reading the synopsis of Goodreads it does actually sound interesting.
