Let's start with Arkadia Castner. Arcadia is self-absorbed, believing herself to be the most popular and beautiful girl in her school. She also happens to be a horrible witch. Unable to control any of her spells no matter how hard she tries. Finding herself in a situation where she only has several months to pass her Paranormal Safety Exam (PSE) or find herself banished to the Isle of Shadows for eternity she lashes out at everyone who is close to her.
When a strange, new boy comes into her life she has no idea the adventure that is about to begin. Bohdan is a Dragon shifter that has moved into town. With one look he knows that Arkadia is his soul mate. However, things are never that simple. Someone in Arkadia's life wants her dead. And will stop at nothing to accomplish.
I really enjoyed the journey of watching Arcadia come into herself. Finally not only loving those around her but also the person that she truly was. She went from a spoiled brat to someone that you would truly want in your life. I loved Bowdan from the start. He was so sweet and determined to make Arkadia his. To protect her no matter what.
It was a sweet, quick read. I will be on the lookout for the next book in the series.
The story itself is entertaining in that the halfway house that the characters live in is for young paranormal's who are having a bit of difficulty with their "gifts", their powers so to speak. There is a young witch, a young vamp...who faints at the sight of blood (not good for a vampire), and twin werewolves. The young witch, Arkadia is at best a full fledged teenager with all that encompasses, along with her problem with her spell casting. In other words, she's a mess. Enter into the house Eloise, the house mother and things do get interesting, especially for the young witch who is, of course a typical teenager and "bucks the system" every chance she gets. But Arkadia has had a hard life up until she was placed in this home, which lends itself to part of the reason for her temperament.
Arkadia has friends, para's themselves with the exception of Violet who appears to just be a normal human teenager. Now, enter into the mix, the hot great looking young ice hockey player Bohden and things really start to get interesting. Arkadia's reaction to this young man is puzzling as she actually faints from his appearance in her classroom. Eloise has a suspicion that this could be because he is her "mate". Arkadia blows this off, but soon finds herself drawn to him. She recalls feeling the unreal pull when he passed by her in his truck, but never understood why. She feels that he is a para but does not know what kinda of para he is. Now, throw in that Arakdia dates the mayor's son one night, a spell backfiring, a spell fixed but with residual side effects, a dead girl, an accusation of murder and things pick up and start to really get interesting.
The characters are well written and very well defined. Arkadia is a beautiful young witch with her spell problems. Bohden is strong, built, hot and he is definitely set on Arkadia. The supporting characters are wonderful in their own ways and I can't wait to see what their stories hold.
This book is quite light and entertaining with enough suspense to keep you turning page after page to see what happens next, who did it, and where/how it all will end.
Great read and I highly recommend it, not only to YA audiences but to everyone.
Rating : 5 Stars
Well, well, well, what a gorgeous book. I absolutely recommend this one ….
This is the first book in the Halfway House series by Dzintra Sullivan.
We start out meeting Arkadia, a pretty young girl who really seems to have no idea about how her witchcraft is supposed to work. She messes up spells and is in dire need of some maternal direction. In steps Eloise, a gorgeous den mother of the halfway house where Arkadia finds herself. Eloise is lovely and being a telephath she is able to see into Arkadia’s mind and read what she is thinking and feeling. Arkadia desperately needs to improve her magic skills and pass her PSEs otherwise she will be banished.
Of course, no good paranormal romance would be complete without the hero, Bohdan, who is a dragon. They both realise fairly quickly that they are a perfect match and Bodham helps her to look forward to a future.
I love, love, love Bohdan’s character, he is hot, sexy and handsome, oh and did I mention hot (literally). I would love a little Bohdan in my life. Arkadia’s character grew thorough out the story, and she was absolutely the star of this book.
Excellent debut novel and I honestly cannot wait to read the next in the series. I give this book five bright shiny stars. I can thoroughly recommend the read.
