When magic, romance and family secrets collide, the result is spellbinding!Miranda Kane has always felt like a screw up–at least when it comes to her ability to wield magic. Her only sanctuary is Shadow Falls camp, where she’s learning to harness her powers as a witch. But thanks to her shapeshifter boyfriend who called it quits and ran off to Paris, both her heart and powers feel broken.
When she unexpectedly lands a top spot in a spell casting competition in France, she flies out with her best friends Kylie and Della. But her trip takes her straight into the heart of a dangerous supernatural mystery–and a heated romance. What Miranda doesn’t expect is for her investigation to unleash shocking revelations…about herself, her family, and her arch enemy. Now Miranda must step up and show everyone that she’s a witch to be reckoned with….before it’s too late.
NOTICE: THIS IS A NOVELLA FOR THE SHADOW FALLS SERIES. THERE WILL BE NO SPOILERS, BUT YOU MAY BE CONFUSED IF KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE SERIES
I received an ecopy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
What I find really interesting about this novella is that it's like a novel. Sure, it's short, but most novellas are only filler. They are intended to give more info, get inside of a different characters head, or just make the wait for the next book more bearable. All of these are probably true of this book, but unlike most novellas, there was an actual plot and conflict.
This novella focuses on Miranda and I'm quite happy that we finally get to hear things from her perspective. Miranda has to compete in a spell competition and surprises herself with her success. As it turns out, Miranda is in danger. Someone has already killed off two girls in the competition and Miranda might be next. If that wasn't enough, she also has to deal with her ex-boyfriend Perry, another boy who might want to be in the picture, and some unexpected revelations.
I really think that this was such a great addition to the series! So much happened and while it's up to choice whether to read this, I feel like so many important things happened! So, all in all, I recommend this novella to any Shadow Falls fans!
Now, I'm hoping that Miranda is going to get her own series!
Meaning: A new favorite!
