Book Review: Wiccan, A Witchy Young Adult Paranormal Romance
Today's review is on Wiccan, A Witchie Young Adult Paranormal Romance by Michelle Leighton
Wiccan is the first installment in Leighton's Wiccan series and is off to a fantastic start. An exceptional suspense thriller thrown in with love and a paranormal twist.
Mercy Holloway is an 18, almost 19 year-old college student with a peculiar "gift". She can see murders that have happened in the past if she walks over the place that they happened. Though this "gift" has been difficult to live with she try's to live her life as normally as she can. One day, on her way to school she has a vision of a woman being strangled. She accepts this as par for the course of her life until she sees the girl who was murdered sitting in front of her very much alive.
Wanting to do something to prevent her classmate from being murdered Mercy goes to the police. While the first officer brushes her off as a freak he hands her over to the young Detective Caleb Grayson. Though at first he too doesn't believe her.
Now something has changed. Mercy is now having dreams about women being murdered. With no one else to turn to she contacts Grayson. As time goes on and other murders happen, he can no longer dismiss the fact that she is right. He also can not dismiss his growing feelings for her.
Though there were some errors that were not caught by the editor, the book was extremely well written and had me guessing up until the end.
4 of 5 stars
