About the book:
A witch raised in a cage of darkness... 
Savannah Cross was born into a life of isolation and abuse. 
As a child, she witnessed her parents perform acts of malevolent evil, and now feels permanently tainted by their dark deeds. 
When a coven discovers a tear stricken child, 
wounded on their elders lawn, they offer her a sanctuary she has never known. Savannah spends the next several years shattered, continuously looking over her shoulder, waiting for the darkness to claim her. 
On her 16th birthday, 
Savannah’s life takes a drastic turn. She is consumed by overwhelming power that forever alters her emotionally and physically. 
She must choose between two loves; the one who taught her to smile or the darkly seductive stranger who tempts her towards another path. 
Savannah must decide between the coven that was her haven 
and another one vying for her initiation. Just as Savannah begins to grasp what fate has in store for her, an evil looms over her loved ones; coming to claim an unbreakable debt. 
How will she survive the greatest evil she has ever witnessed… long enough to have a choice to make?

My thoughts:

I loved this book! It was thrilling from page 1. This book was really interesting and the story quite well written. It was never a dull moment and I thought it was interesting how she struggle with her feelings and the confusion for they brought when she found she is attracted to two guys one Light and one Dark. But the truth is of course so much more complicated than that. 

There is a lot happening in Savannah´s life in this book and even though I loved the story, the ending was a bum. I really did not like the ending but if the sequel fix the ending then I am okay with it. I really like Savannah. She is such a strong character and so is her friend Willow even though it takes the whole book for her to realize that.

It was a great read that I recommend for others to read.
