It’s been a long time since I last read a book about witches. And I find themes about witches definitely one of the exciting themes in the world of literature. I had a great time reading this book and I find myself quite absorbed with it. The plot is very fast paced and it didn’t bore me to wait for what will going to happen next. Actually there are a lot of secrets and mystery buried in the storyline, and the exciting thing that spiced the story is when each secrets are being revealed and the mysteries are being solved. The time travelling is one of the coolest thing or talent they could do. The plot is more on the contemporary and I love the scenes in each of their time travelling.
At first I thought that it will be mostly about spell casting and potion making but I was much intrigued to find out that it’s mostly based on the talents of the Greene’s family members. Plus this book shows the tight relationship and ties of each family member. Although at first Tamsin is a little bit afar from her family thinking that she is a misfit, but as the story goes on, she found out how her family really cares bout her and value her. And I love to see how Tamsin learn to value her sister.
I liked the half part of the book where the secrets are starting to reveal itself that lead to a smooth climax of the story. Although at the ending it revealed that the loose ends to the story are not yet fully solved so I’m expecting to know more in the sequel plus I want to see the relationship of Gabriel and Tamsin develops. Overall it’s a great book.
