Review Source: Author
It’s two weeks before Triss turns 18, and her world is about to change into the most magical one imaginable as she readies herself to enter The Witch Avenue Order... that is until her mother’s disappearance. Instead of celebrating her transformation, she finds herself spreading rose petals into her mother’s empty grave.One of the things I really enjoyed about this first book was that not everything was revealed right away. It was a quick read, but that doesn't mean that we weren't introduced to characters and enough storyline to remain interested. What we did get was... hinted at and discussed, but not in so many details that you'd feel overwhelmed.
When Logan, her best friend from junior high, moves back to town for college, he vows to help her find the answers she so desperately seeks surrounding her mother’s disappearance. As they begin uncovering clues, it becomes apparent that the life of white magic they both grew up loving is not what the majority practices, and their lives are in danger.
With a haunting feeling that her mother may still be alive, she begins to hear a call to the wilderness. Triss realizes that in order to find the answers she needs, she must learn the ways of her ancestors and become the hunter, not the hunted before it’s too late, and she becomes part of the lonely souls.
Triss, as still a young girl, remained consistent throughout the book. Though her emotions were in an upheaval with her mother's disappearance, she was still a character that I found myself really liking. She wanted the truth and was willing to do what needed to be done to get it, but realized that she also couldn't do it alone.
Karice gave a really great setup to the series and I'm definitely interested in finding out what else happens. Like I said at the beginning, you're given a chance to wonder where it's all headed and I really liked that. Your given some answers to the mystery and get a better understanding of Triss and Logan, which, in my case, kept my interest throughout.
I definitely can't wait to read more from this author.
