There are witches in Charleston!
This review is from: Witches in the Holy City (Holy City Series) (Kindle Edition)
PRODUCT REVIEW: 18-year-old Lorelei Moskowitz thought she would have a normal college experience, but even she believes that normal is overrated. So it doesn't come as any big surprise when she finds out her cousin, Julie, is dating a warlock who may or may not have a dishonest, hidden agenda. Using her witchly powers, Lorelei decides to make sure Julie doesn't get hurt, but she can't do it without the help of Ethan; a 150-year-old warlock in the body of a twenty-five year old. The two of them form an instant friendship as they stalk the streets of Charleston, South Carolina keeping an eye on Julie and her mysterious beau. It doesn't take Lorelei long to fall for Ethan, and eventually, she makes a shocking discovery about the mother she's never met. A discovery that puts her life in a whole new perspective.
"Witches" was an interesting story. I liked the characters, especially the main characters Lorelei and Ethan. The author was unable to decide if Lorelei's sister was named Julie or Anne ( an editorial mistake perhaps?) but she was also an interesting character, being one of the few non witches/sorcerers in the story. I really found it ironic that the non magical character of Julie was the 'perfect' sister. Julie was beautiful, smart and fun while Lorelei, the witch, was not as pretty, not as smart and not as much fun. The interaction between Lorelei and her love interest, the sorcerer Ethan was fun to read. As the product review promises, this is more than a simple love story involving witches. There are some very interesting twists and turns. The ending is quite unexpected and leaves you wondering "what happens next?" As this is the first in a series, I expect several of my questions will be answered in the next installment.
Overall, I found this to be an enjoyable and quick read. I look forward to more from this author. I give this book 4/5 stars
