Synopsis:

Apples and oranges, dogs and cats, everybody knows witches and immortals don’t mix.

A young witch, Callie, returns home from exile after a traumatic Ouija board incident seven years earlier. She falls for classmate James MacLauren and struggles to keep her magical abilities a secret from him. Then there’s the even trickier problem that her rogue warlock father and his coven will kill anyone who prevents Callie from joining them in dark magic. Someone like James . . . 

But James has a secret of his own. He’s part of a hidden race of immortals living in the Appalachian hollows and the last thing he needs in his life is a witch who could imprison him with a binding spell. 

But it will take all of his superhuman physical strength, and all of Callie’s extraordinary magical skills, to survive when two covens and an army of immortals engage in battle. Should they fail, they face either death or utter domination by the power of dark magic.

Review:

DNF @ 24%

I promised I wouldn’t DNF this but I had to due to the lack of caring.

I couldn’t connect with the characters. The heroine is suppose to be nineteen and in a junior college. What it really read like was the heroine is seventeen and still in high school.

I can’t tell if this was suppose to be YA or NA. I tried to stay interested but when the other book I’m reading had a better plot story in the first 6% than this did in the total of all I read, got a problem. I don’t mean to say that as cruel just saying how bored I was.

This may have worked for someone but not for me.
