REVIEW – THE LAST DREAM KEEPER BY AMBER BENSON

the last dream keeper cover
In the second Witches of Echo Park novel, one coven must keep the world in balance and stand against a rising darkness.

Lyse MacAllister did not step into an easy role when she took over as master of the Echo Park coven of witches after her great-aunt Eleanora’s death. As she begins to forge the bonds that will help her lead her sisters, she struggles to come to terms with her growing powers. And she soon faces a deadly new threat. A group of fanatics intent on bringing about the end of times has invaded the witches Council—but the Council is turning a blind eye to the danger growing in its midst.

Only one witch is prophesied to be able to stop the encroaching darkness. And if Lyse and her blood sisters are to have any chance at protecting all we know from being lost forever, they must keep her safe—no matter what the cost…

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

THE LAST DREAM KEEPER is full of magic, intrigue, and action.  I love the characters and the world building. Lyse has taken over the role of leader of the coven, and she has no idea what she is doing. They must keep THE LAST DREAM KEEPER from The New World Order. This book has a lot going on in the book, and it would be easy to get lost. We get to see each members different abilities and how their lives are all intertwined. Some of the Coven members will grow and overcome their fears, disabilities and limitations. While others won’t have no visible growth, or no growth at all.The one character that has a lot of growth is Lizbeth. She has not talked in a long while, since something happened when she was a child. When she comes out of a dream and able to talk, she finds out that she is destined to become THE LAST DREAM KEEPER. I really liked this book and recommend it and the series to everyone. I give this book  4/5 stars.

DIME STORE MAGIC BY KELLY ARMSTRONG

dime store magic

Paige Winterbourne was always either too young or too rebellious to succeed her mother as leader of one of the world’s most powerful elite organizations—the American Coven of Witches. Now that she is twenty-three and her mother is dead, the Elders can no longer deny her.  But even Paige’s wildest antics can’t hold a candle to those of her new charge—an orphan who is all too willing to use her budding powers for evil…and evil is all too willing to claim her. For this girl is being pursued by a dark faction of the supernatural underworld. They are a vicious group who will do anything to woo the young, malleable, and extremely powerful neophyte, including commit murder—and frame Paige for the crime. It’s an initiation into adulthood, womanhood, and the brutal side of magic that Paige will have to do everything within her power to make sure they both survive.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

Dime Store Magic is well written with characters that are well-developed and that are able to help move the story along. Paige Winterborne is a witch and has recently inherited her mother’s role as leader of the American Coven of Witches. Paige has recently  been given custody of a 13-year-old angry witch whose mother has been known to dabble in black magic. She was kidnapped along with her mother Eve who was later killed. Lucas Cortez a nerdy sorcerer lawyer helps Paige to keep Savannah safe while keeping his hands off the delectable Paige. The sparks and looks between Paige and Lucas are very hot. Savannah is also a very powerful witch that one day will be a witch to be reckoned with. The action in this been is very fast paced. There is also demons, and vampires making an appearance. I really likes Dime Store Magic and I give it 5/5 stars.

WITCH FIRE BY ANYA BAST

WITCH FIRE BK1

After a chaotic marriage and a rough divorce, all Mira Hoskins wants is stability and normality. But when sexy Jack McAllister enters her life, she discovers that what you want isn’t always what you need.

Jack is a powerful witch with the ability to command fire and is anything but normal. As the head of a security detail for The Coven, a national organization that governs national witches, Jack has been assigned to watch over Mira. She is a natural-born witch with the ability to call the air. And although she is unaware of her talent, a group of renegade witches has discovered her existence and are determined to steal her power–and her life.

 

This is a fast paced, delicious read. The characters and story line is well-developed.  Mira is an air witch who has lived outside of the coven, and has no idea of her talent or that she is a witch.   There is a rogue coven out to get Mira and steal her power and her life. Jack is not about to let that happen, he was entrusted by the coven to watch over Mira and not let the other coven get ahold of her.  We all know what happens when fire and air gets together, they burn hotter.  Anya Bast is a great writer, and this is a great book. I recommend this book to everyone. I give Witch Fire 4.5/5 stars.
