This was pretty something.It was a different take about witches with a historical mix, both I didn't know I would like. I thought this was highly original; from the characters, settings, and sorcery. Though this was a more juvenile read for me, the events kept you up on your toes. Jordan was a great heroine and the ending was kind of a bummer so I was happy to know there will be a sequel because I was really hoping she and Rowen will see again. Okay, the ending was exhilarating and fun that I thought she was about to be saved since it was this (pinch forefinger and thumb closely together) close to be caught but it just had to fly. Bummer, I tell you. So many characters, so many things happening all at ones but somehow everything and everybody correlates. ARC for review from Netgally.
