Review ~ In Shadows of Magic
In Shadows of Magic
~ BLURB ~
Mandy McKinney lives the charmed life. She is beautiful, athletic, popular, dating the hottest jock in school, and certainly doesn't have any time for her loser twin sister. But Mandy also has a secret. When the truth is unveiled, her world is twisted upside down, and her very life is at stake.
Mandy's twin sister, Brianna, has never had any success in the dating department. When Brianna finally meets the guy of her dreams, it turns out that he has secrets of his own. Dangerous secrets. Just her luck.
The twins are about to be swept away into a world of beauty and power beyond their wildest imaginations where nothing is what is seems, danger is lurking in the shadows, and their only chance of survival is finding themselves, and each other, once again.
~ REVIEW ~
I haven't read any teenage witchy magic lately so was looking forward to reading this, and thankfully I wasn't disappointed. There was so much more to this book than just teenage witchcraft, including family, love, jealousy, self-esteem and friendship. I'm sure when I re-read it again I'll pick up more that I didn't notice, on different levels. Despite being twins, Mandy and Brianna really couldn't be any more different. Both have some magic in them but neither has any idea of the darker side of the magical / supernatural world, and the dangers in store for them as their secret is uncovered. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, from start to finish, and loved the unexpected nature of it. The author did a great job with the character development and descriptive nature, making it easy to picture the whole story as it unfolds and left parts open for it to continue.
