This book kept me glued to my kindle from start to finish. It was very suspenseful and I could not put it down! Perfect reading for a rainy day on vacation when it was too dismal to leave the hotel room (smiley). I had purchased it awhile ago but just got to it now (October 2013).
There was alot of depth and character development going on and I liked the not overplayed message of good/evil/Christian values. It was not overdone or sappy at all (I'm Christian). The plot kept me on the edge of my chair and I was glued to the very last page, not knowing how it would finish or who Kenzie would end up with.
I just purchased 2 other books by this author, so I hope she writes more teen suspense novels that aren't totally centered around romance. Either way, good luck to her. She definitely has talent (IMHO).
Rhiannon introduces Kenzie to witch craft by using a Ouija board to talk to the spirits, they instantly start talking too Wesley who knows about Kenzie's past offer to tell her about her father. She purchases her own Ouija board to talk to Wesley when Rhiannon isn't around and that is when things go wrong. She starts having horrible nightmares, so she stops sleeping, and thinks that Wesley is her father as he pretends hiding his true nature.
This book is the first in a series I plan to read over the next month. The synopsis hints at something powerful but doesn't give a clue exactly what we are going to expect. It's a fast paced book that kept me wanting more. I wanted to know who Wesley really was, what he wanted and what would happen to Kenzie. She's hasn't had the best life, things have been rough she has a past so this was a chance for a new start it's fun to watch Kenzie progress as she dabbles in witch craft. I like her as a character, I feel that she is well written and easy to relate too. It's a interesting story, a unique twist on personal demons but this one just happens to be really evil.
This has some Christian themes in it and I think that the story interweaved them easily, keeping the suspense and mystery in perfect harmony. I found myself glued to the pages (my kindle actually) to see what was going to happen to Kenzie next. This girl has a knack for trouble. But I was intrigued on how she handled things and how it ended at the end.
Definitely is left open for the next book, I can't wait to read it. A great YA series, loved it!
Can't wait for Entice!
In fact, the book starts out like other supernatural books and then sneaks in the Christian themes and contents until they are the central theme. I think it's unfortunate that young people may buy the book for one thing only to be preached to unexpectedly. Makes me feel like the author wanted extra people to buy it, because obviously the market would be smaller for Christian themed supernatural stories. That made me extremely uncomfortable.
Also notice that most of the 5 ratings are from people with one review, makes you wonder if someone might be padding the ratings?

As a YA book, it was good but I find the description misleading when it doesn't describe something...Read more
