Serena Sykes just discovered that the mother, identical twin sister, and niece she never knew existed…are the last remaining witches on the planet. That is, except for Serena, who recently received her own limited, albeit wildly erratic supernatural abilities.
But her newfound family isn’t interested in helping her master those gifts. After all, Serena’s mother has been communicating beyond the veil with the first witch in their line, a sorceress named Zephora who hopes to return to this dimension and destroy an ancient curse that would unleash paranormal creatures across the globe.
To help guide her in this new landscape, Serena turns to her grandmother, an elderly woman suffering from dementia and the only vampire in existence, a man who has his own mysterious agenda. With less than 48 hours to prevent her family from triggering a supernatural wasteland, Serena must learn to control her abilities…if she hopes to save the world!
Firstly I would like to thank the lovely Sydney Bristow for kindly providing me with a copy of “Nightwish” to read and review.
I am more than thrilled and looking forward to reading the next instalment of this, little-cherry-on-top-of-the-tree-book, I totally FLOVE anything paranormal – winner winner, chicken dinner 🙂
In Nightwish we meet Serena Sykes, a graduate who recently finished her degree from college and was brought up by her grandmother (who unfortunately more recently was diagnosed with Dementia) due to her real mother high-tailing it out of there when Serena was just a baby…tut tut tut
But what happens when the life you thought you lived wasn’t the complete truth?
What happens if you find out the one person you trust the most has betrayed you deeply?
And what happens when you find out that there is more to your life than you new?
Serena just got a boat load of information thrown at her.
She now has powers, she has a family, her family is a long line of witches, and things are just going to get complicated.
As Serena tries to come to terms with this knowledge, she realises that her grandmother is not quite herself, could the dementia be getting worse at a faster rate?
Or could it be foul play supernaturally?
I found Serena to be a tad naive and lost, but hey if I had my world turned upside I think I’d be the same.
Serena only has so much time to learn her powers, stop Zephora and deal with a witch of a mother and sister who are far more powerful than she.
The storyline was a very good start, definitely a getting to know you and your world scenario but with plenty of twists and turns to keep you on your toes.
