Goodreads Synopsis:

Brayden dreams for thirty nights, tortured by the vision of a beautiful woman. When Ariel Williams walks into his inn, he sees that she's the one he's been obsessed with in his night time journeys. But Ariel is fleeing an arranged marriage and keeps shyly to herself, until the worst happens and by mistake she casts a spell on a guest. Brayden works with Ariel to help her control her magic but discovers she's a High Witch - one of only three witches in the world with a rare kind of power.

Immediately the two must flee; evil warlock Julius wants to enslave Ariel - mind, heart and body. Julius and his lover the High Witch Nadia will stop at nothing to capture Ariel, and the danger threatens to tear Ariel apart from Brayden. Ariel's only hope is that her love for Brayden and her newly-discovered powers are strong enough to save them.

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I have been in a witchy book mood lately. The festive season always makes me want to go to some old favourites. This book looks like it will be an absolutely gorgeous read. The cover is really well done. 

Thank you so much to Silver Dagger Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book. Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book in exchange for an honest review. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

The writing in this book was good. The pacing and flow of the writing was good and it pulled you into the story quite quickly.

Plot Thoughts:

Unfortunately, I didn't like the plot. The insta-love was weird and made me uncomfortable. It happened way too quickly and the fact that they almost instantly wrapped in each other's arms was a little off putting. The pacing of the plot was off. Everything happened way too fast and there were certain things that could have been fleshed out. A lot of the moments that were supposed land a punch didn't. I definitely think that if the book was fleshed out more everything would sort itself out.

Character Thoughts:

Because the book was so short, the characters weren't fleshed out. We had no idea who these characters were, what made them them. 

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I really wish I had liked this story. It had the bare bones to become something more. The book just needs a lot more substance to it. It lacked depth in everything but the writing. I liked the author's writing because there was detail. Thank you so much to Silver Dagger Books for providing me with a copy of this book.

Yours in Reading,
