Samara Cavanaugh has grown up in a world filled with magic users. She’s used to bizarre and peculiar. But when a stranger checks in at The Bella Luna, the bed and breakfast her family owns, the strange occurrences in Granite Falls escalate.

Many people are leery of Levi, their new guest. He claims to be in town doing research but Samara’s friends aren’t so sure that his claim is as innocuous as it appears to be. When two of her classmates disappear, her friends seem convinced Levi had a hand in it.

Those closest to her have been keeping secrets from her. Those secrets put everyone close to her in danger.

Suddenly, her unrequited crush on her best friend, Tristan becomes the least of her troubles.

4 out of 5 (really liked it)

I received this book from YA Reads as part of their blog tour in return for a fair and honest review.

This book is full of brilliant characters that immediately draw you into their personal stories and give you a vested interest in what happens to them - even the ones that don't make that big an appearance.

A brief history to give you an idea is that the world is split between humans and... not humans. The witches are split into two - the Lumia who practice white magic and the Striga who practice black. The black were more powerful but the white were more numerous. So a balance is sort of there.

This story starts with Sam (Samara) crushing on her best friend Tristan who is unaware of her feelings in that way. Her two friends, Fin and Daphne, are aware of it though and frequently give her pep talks and advice. A gentleman called Levi turns up at the B&B where Sam lives and starts asking questions around town which make a lot of people uneasy. 

The story unfolds at a steady pace, drawing you into the story, wanting to uncover the mysteries surrounding Levi, Alex and Tristan to name just a few.

I really enjoyed this story as it took me away into Sam's world. I love Tristan and - without hopefully ruining it for anyone - was on the edge of my seat at the end. This is a trilogy so you are left with a cliffhanger at the end but it was very well done and came to the natural conclusion.
