This is Savannah’s book. I was so excited to read it, and it didn’t disappoint me AT ALL. It was everything I expected from her and more! I don’t want to put a spoiler warning on this, so I’ll try to be careful not give too much away.
At this point, Savannah is 21. She has been working for Paige and Lucas for 5 years, and now they are away on vacation and Adam is away at a conference, and a case comes up that sounds easy and safe enough for her to investigate her first case by herself. She follows Jessie, who’s a friend of Lucas’, to a nearby town to investigate the murders of three girls that seem to have a supernatural connection. While there she finds a group of women living in a commune and whose leader might be a suspect for the murders, another witch married to the main suspect in the killings, one of the victims’ brother who comes from Dallas to investigate and actually goes on a date with Savannah twice, a witch hunter who they thought would just be a legend, and many more adventures.
What I liked: Savannah’s personality, as usual, she’s straight-forward, spunky, fun, confident and just adorable. She’s my favorite heroine in this series now! And she riders a bike! Adam’s relationship with her is so cute! I loved hearing all the phone calls, the teasing, the memories of vacations they’ve had together and things they do for each other. And how she keeps burning his clothes with the sparks from her fingers! I liked Michael also.
There was a lot of action and mystery in this book! The story kept building and twisting and getting more complicated, with more possibilities as we went along.
And the greatest thing is I never would’ve thought the way things turned out in the end! I started suspecting, but for different reasons. Savannah has to battle with being Eve’s daughter or doing the right thing. And the caring that Adam shows for her at the end *tender* He was there for her, protected her, risked his life for her, yelled at her, confronted her and didn’t let her get away!
And the actual ending… Oh.My.God! I have to read the next book as soon as it comes out, and that’s not soon enough, to find out what’s going to happen.
