Read full description of the books:
I loved this book. It is book one in the "Resident Witch" series, and sets everything up nicely and probably means I have to buy the rest of the series... It deals with some issues that could be triggering, such as sexual violence and bullying, but there is nothing explicit, and in today's climate especially, it is important to face these things rather than hide from. What I both liked and found disturbing in equal measure in a YA book is that there was really no moral compass. The characters were real, made real mistakes and had real flaws, and there was no retribution or learning curve, just like real life. Alice, the main character, for example, chastises herself for not wanting to have sex with her boyfriend, fearing what he'll think of her, the way a teenage girl might, but there is never the realisation that it's her body and her choice, the thought is never addressed again.
Trouble, the main love interest is also morally dubious, and I didn't like him, but I'm told that most women do, so, maybe that's just me. Heh. I failed to understand the attraction, or the love. So far this review sounds negative, and I don't mean for it to be. It was a fast paced urban fantasy with demons, shifters, witches and more. Well written and the scene is well set, I will definitely be going back to see what happens next. The lack of any real moral message gave me pause, and as I read on I kept hoping that maybe there would be one at the end. As with life, there wasn't. Nonetheless, a thoroughly enjoyable read and I will return to the series.
