: : : SYNOPSIS : : :
When Eliza Rose found out she was a witch, she thought she’d be casting spells… However, it turns out Eliza is on her way to becoming a mystical assassin. But first she has to start college with her best friend Dawn Roberts and her feline familiar Jared. If you think college is stressful, try finding your best friend being seduced—nearly to death—by a venomous fairy. Something is horribly wrong, and Eliza must find out what it is. Knowing who’s who in the Mystical world can be a burden—or save her life… Murderous mermaids, seductive fairies, and manipulative elves are terrifying enough, but pure witches can become corrupt…and they’re the most dangerous creatures of all. Eliza struggles to discover the source of this chaos, but is repeatedly attacked—and saved by a shadowy figure. On a very personal note, Eliza must learn whether corruption is beginning to claim her mother. Her strongest ally might be handsome, enigmatic Donovan—but he is hiding a shocking secret… Donovan wants nothing to do with his old gang—not after the things they’d made him do. But when he meets Eliza, he’s both frustrated by her amateur skills and impressed by her emerging strength, and he feels compelled to help her grow into the assassin she’s meant to be. Every answer has a price, and there are beings born to corrupt the pure. Eliza fights to master her skills before it’s too late, while Donovan must determine whether Eliza can be saved…or if she must die to keep her out of the hands of those who would use her powers to reign over all of Mystical.
: : : REVIEW : : :
Mystical is a pretty fast paced book. It doesn’t bore you down with too many details. Where there is a red cup, say there’s a red cup. It’s that simple. Anyway, I have heard a lot of people compare this book to The Mortal Instruments series…Yes, there’s similarities.
There’s a kick ass chick who has these powers that she absolutely doesn’t know how to use and is suddenly cast into a world where mythical creatures exist right along beside you and me.
There’s the guy we root for who is able to help her understand these powers and this world she’s living in.
But that’s the majority of Fantasy books!!
Though this story line is one I’ve read before, it’s one that is tried and true. It’s a story line that you really never get bored of. Witches can’t cast spells and their broomstick is nothing like you would think it is! Michael does thrown in some curve balls and the action keeps going.
I really enjoyed the ‘average’ main character though I did become annoyed how she really never questioned things she was being told/that was happening. I feel any real person would start to get pissed off after a while. You can avoid telling me what I need to know only for so long.
But other than that, there’s this guy…then that guy..then back to this guy who you love yet hate and hate yet love but that guy is all ‘rawr’ and I just wanna gobble him up! No, romance isn’t the main story line…but I can’t resist any romance. 😉
If you love a good Fantasy, grab this book. It’s an easy read and keeps you wanting to know more. Warning: there is a cliffhanger!!!
