Contemporary American Novellas

Written by Kate St. Clair

Genre(s): Contemporary Fiction

Misfortune seems to follow the Sayers family. Georgia has tried to reestablish normality since her mother died, and she’s no closer to escaping her strange past when a mysterious fire destroys the only other high school in her tiny Texas town.

Georgia is thrown into the company of Luke, a cryptic senior who brings her face to face with the truth about her heritage. Her loving, perfect mother created her family for the singular purpose of birthing five of the most powerful witches in the world, capable of terrifying magic.

Now that she knows the truth, can Georgia keep her siblings safe? Who is behind the dark cult that’s after her family? And does Luke know more about her powers than even Georgia does?

Julie Angel's Review

The best good versus wicked witch story since the Wizard of Oz

Georgia is an average teen, who struggles to overcome her mother’s suicide and outrun the rumors swirling around town that her mother was a witch. She spends her days caring for her four younger siblings. After a local high school burns to the ground, her school gets an influx of new students that throws her life into a tailspin by the name of Luke.

This hot, brooding young man awakens parts of her long buried. Parts that were better off buried until Georgia and her siblings find themselves in a fight for their lives. Georgia and her siblings must embrace the rumors and accept the truth if they are going to survive.

The book is filled with clever twists and turns that left me reeling. It is a fascinating piece of paranormal blended with a real place and very real teenage issues. The characters are engaging and the tension keeps you turning pages until the end.

I don’t usually go for novellas because I prefer longer well-developed stories, but I enjoyed this one. My world will be a brighter place with more installations of the same, so that I might satisfy my curiosity.
