High school sucks. It doesn’t matter who you ask; jock, cheerleader, computer nerd, or band geek, they will all say the same thing: It’s a nightmare. But Casey is still wondering how she got the short end of the stick. Just a Sophomore at the prestigious Luthos Academy for Magical Beings, Casey already knows more about heartache and fear than any almost-sixteen-year-old should. Orphaned and left to be raised by the Academy, she spends her days training to become a Guardian, but that dream is looking dimmer with every day that passes.Unlike the wand-waving heroines in all her favorite books, Witches in her world don’t cast spells, they are born wielding the power of nature: water, fire, earth, or air; powers Casey never developed. She’ll be lucky if they even allow her to take her final exams.

She is top of her training class, but that doesn’t keep her from being looked down upon by every other being at her school. All Casey wants is to be given a chance, instead she finds the only life she’s ever known targeted by an unfathomable evil. Thrust into the center of an age-old prophecy, a war is coming with Casey at the reins.

Will relying on her hard earned training be enough for her to make it out alive?

My Thoughts:

I was sent an Ecopy by the author in exchange for an honest review.

When E.M. Rinaldi contacted me to ask me if I wanted to review her book, after reading the synopsis I just couldn't reply fast enough. I love fantasy books especially if they have witches in them and this book did not disappoint, I was hooked from the first page all the way to the end; I just can't believe this is a debut novel it was so well written. 

I loved that the Witches in this book don't cast spells, but control water, fire, earth, or air instead it’s a breather from your typical witch. Casey was such an amazing and strong character I loved everything about her. She kicked ass and didn't take crap from anyone and I love that in a female character. This book is really well paced and I loved it wasn't too slow or too fast and just kept you interested and turning the pages. One thing that was very well done was the romance there is just enough, it doesn’t take over the story at all and I loved that the author took the time to build the relationship and did not make it insta-love.  I absolutely loved everything about this book and can't wait to get my hands on the next one, especially after the ending and twist Rinaldi hit me with; I NEED to know what happens next! If you're in the mood of witches, faes, vampires and tons of action, look no further this book is it and I highly recommend it.
