I will definitely buy the next one.
I really enjoy the story and the characters. Stella is courageous, strong willed and completely believable. She questions things, including herself due to her lack of family during her upbringing. She has that honest naiveté that is refreshing. Stella's powers and character grow throughout the story surprising herself and those around her. As she learns to control her magic, her confidence in herself grows and is able to get beyond some of her past, right before it is thrown back at her.
The other characters that become her friends and foes are solid and some are pretty scary. Marc is moody and yet friendly. Evan is strong, mysterious and loyal. Étoile and her sister Seren are very powerful witches who befriend and try to protect Stella. Kitty teaches Stella about friendship, shopping and being a girl.
The places were extraordinary, from London to New York to the Beach house and on to Wilding so vivid the descriptions. I enjoyed the way the author familiarized the locations and made these the places that normal people would live along the supernatural beings.
I found myself immediately drawn into the story. I thought the storyline was well done. There were a few grammatical errors that could have been avoided with a little more editing. However, the errors didn't disturb the flow. I was completely sucked in and can't wait to begin the second book in the series.

More than three hundred years after the most terrifying witch hunts the world has ever known, it's happening again.
Young witch, Stella, has to put her faith in strangers just to stay alive but she might not be any safer in their midst than from the danger she is running from.
There is more than one dark secret in her new family: Étoile's sister is spoken of in fear and sadness; Marc is supposed to be a powerful witch but is missing his magic; where does the owner of their safe house vanish to every day and why does Evan have the eyes of someone not quite human? There is only one secret that someone will do anything to keep quiet, but whose secret is it and will Stella have to pay the price for silence?
Stella Mayweather has been sent from pillar to post most of her life after losing her parents at the tender age of five... Never staying in one place for long due to strange occurrences which cause her foster families to quickly pack her up and ship her back to social service workers. After finally turning eighteen Stella moves out on her own and makes her way as best she can... Now at twenty-four Stella has settled into a routine of living in one place, going to work each day and coming home each night without much variance from day to day... Suddenly attacked one night she is thrust into a nightmare from which she barely escapes when a strange young woman appears at her flat and whisks her away before she loses her life in a fire set by her previous attackers when they find her at home...Read more ›
As an adult, she shuffles herself from job to job and avoids making connections of any kind. She's lonely and recognizes that her life holds little promise of change. We quickly discover she's in danger and in order to stay alive she'll have to embrace the part of herself that she has always avoided.
The reader is taken on an adventure as Stella learns what the "strange occurrences" are, who the Brotherhood is and why they want to kill her, and most importantly as she learns to trust and open her heart to friendship and the possibility of love.
The story is written in first person narrative with Stella as the narrator. She's strong, practical, and deals well with all the things life throws at her. She's a down to earth character that is easy to connect with. I became her personal cheerleader by the end of chapter 2.
This book is fast paced and has great supporting characters that have mysteries and stories of their own.
There's a blend of suspense, mystery, magic, romance, and fantasy.
