A sister kidnapped.

An impending war between Heaven and Hell looming around the corner.

A Grand Witch who has no idea what she is.

The Prince of Darkness’s obsession in claiming her.

Two sinfully gorgeous men pulling her in two different directions.

As the owner of the coffee shop Déjà Brew in Savannah, Georgia, Anna thought her life was ordinary. That is until her sister is kidnapped by a demon, prompting two handsome men to march into her life unexpectedly. Valen, the sinfully gorgeous, overprotective werewolf who is Anna’s sworn guardian and Roman, the most handsome and powerful Warlock in the entire Netherworld.

Suddenly, her world is stripped of everything she knows and replaced with frightening news about who she really is - a powerful Grand Witch. Now, it’s up to her to draw out her dormant magic, rescue her sister and stop an impending heavenly war threatening to eradicate the human race all while staying alive.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I was drawn in by the cutesy cover. Unfortunately, the book doesn’t seem to fit the cover. The summary is more accurate than the cover, but even that doesn’t cover everything.

There is just so much going on in this book. It’s a case of too many ideas shoved into one story. This makes it clunky and disjointed, with some parts being skimmed over, and others having too much detail, without there being an overall smooth flow.

The part that had the most promise, and was the most disappointing, was Anna’s training. The premise is that when she turns 30, whatever her powers are then, that’s the strongest they will ever get. So when she learns this, she starts training. Good idea, but she picks things up too fast for the story to be enjoyable. There is no struggle. She tries something, and is better than great at it. For everything. It’s just not interesting when everything is easy like that.

Overall, I didn’t enjoy the story. The idea was good, but it was just too easy, and too inconsistent. I really wanted to like the story, and there are several good aspects to it, but it just fell flat for me.
