OK I'm debating between 3 and 4 stars for this one and I decided on 4 because I enjoyed reading the entire book.....that is until answers were revealed. Revelations provided did not match the portrait painted of characters in this book. I was looking for, anticipating, expecting a logical explanation for Mercy Alban even thought maybe there would be a '6th Sense' kind of twist. That Mercy's mother and grandmother were witches who raised her from the dead; that's a little too far out for me I guess. I read over other friends reviews and it seems like I'm alone with my opinion. Don't let my thoughts dissuade you from reading this book. You may love the ending!! I enjoyed the budding romance, the characters, the setting, the entire book.....until the end. Maybe you will love it!
