It’s not everyday you learn you’re the incarnation of magic.
After learning her birth mother sought the help of witches to conceive her, fifteen-year-old Crystal’s previously unwavering faith is shaken. God hasn’t been answering her prayers like she thought – she was.
Crystal’s limitless magical potential is put to the test when her boyfriend’s mother is in a life-threatening accident. Surely God won’t mind her using magic to help people, but the miraculous outcome leaves Crystal wondering what she is capable of and worrying that her magic will damn her to Hell or, worse, prove she has no soul to condemn.
After her aunt is threatened, Crystal sets out to master her power, but flying and conjuring fireballs attracts dangerous attention. A witch hunter kidnaps her boyfriend, and shamans and witches hunt Crystal, desperate to use her to end a centuries-old war between the supernatural races. Her magic is an uncontrollable time bomb. If Crystal can’t figure out what she’s capable of, she won’t just fail to protect those she loves and end the war – she might start the apocalypse.
God . . . and magic! Those are two things you normally don’t find mixing together in books. It seems to be an unwritten rule that you can’t have magic if your story is faith-based, and vice versa. But for those of us who are faith-based and still want to read a good story about magic, this is a refreshing change! What a great read!
This book was the first I read by Nicole Zoltack and I wasn’t really sure what to expect (new author and all). I was really intrigued by the idea of God AND magic. Then, as I read on, I was curious what would happen with Crystal, her friends, and the witches. By the end, I was on the edge of my seat, anxious and eager to find out how the book ended. Now, I can’t wait to pick up the next in the series and keep everything going!
I liked Crystal’s character quite a bit, actually. I wasn’t sure I was going to at first but in the end, it all worked out. With everything she was thrown, I think she held her own pretty well. Strong main character. Nicely done.
