I am not even really sure where to begin. There was so much I liked about this book. While I am going to try really hard not to give any spoilers that will impact your enjoyment of this story, I can not guarantee that I will not inadvertently over share. I apologize in advance, if I do. This is the first book in a trilogy about a woman who discovers she is a witch, as she is helping to bring down an evil organization. I know this sounds like many witch story arcs, but this story is anything, but typical. It incorporates familiar lore with new lore, making for very interesting characters and plot twists.

I'll tell you what I liked about it:

* Devan is a character I could easily relate to and care about. She is strong, yet vulnerable. She cares about others and often puts their needs before her own, but is never a door mat. While she is struggling with a horrid past, she uses it not as a weakness, but as the strength she needs to move forward and make things right.

* This book has witches, vampires, a faery-witch, a shaman, dhampirs, and a sheoque.

*I love that the characters are in their mid-thirties (or older - hundreds of years old ;0)). So many of books in this genre have young adult aged characters and I loved having characters closer to my age.

* You finish the story feeling like the story is complete, yet wanting more. There is no "I can not believe the author ended this here and now I have to wait months/a year to find out the end of the story" angst.

*Neither the love story nor the mystery/adventure overshadowed the other. It is a nice blend making this a good book for people who love romance as well as those loving the suspense of a good vs evil conflict.

As an avid fan of Paranormal Romance, this book gave me everything I was looking for. The story is a fresh twist on witches and other paranormal beings and the plot was never dull, keeping my interest from beginning to end. I really enjoyed the banter between the characters, especially Langston. The mentor/sidekick quickly became one of my new favorite characters. Ms. Hardin does a great job telling Devan's story. I am very much looking forward to her next book. This is an author to watch out for!

This book was fantastic and held my interest until the end. Olivia Hardin's writing style is excellent and her storytelling abilities are great! I loved the chemistry between Devan and Kent and all the secondary characters were fun! I can't wait to read more of this series!

Overall a decent read. I spent a little too much time at the beginning trying to figure out what was going on, since the story starts rather abruptly. (I know, I know... hook the reader and all that.) Maybe there was too many things going on and not enough time to process anything from the start.

I did like the characters, but at times they felt a little younger than I think they were supposed to. The premise of the novel is intriguing, but I felt the ending conflict was done a little too easy, or something.

The writing was good and the story line fairly unique, so I am still interested to see where the series heads though!

I really did enjoy this story. Ms. Hardin has a writing style that really fleshes out her characters and is a master at filling in the scenes. This is one of those stories that plays out in your head like a movie.
This is a story about a woman that has seen some strange things happening and is shocked to find out that she can do some strange things also. The vampires are buying children with magical gifts to use as blood slaves in order to strengthen themselves with their blood. Devan finds out her father and boyfriend are in the business of brokering these sales. They find the children and sell them to the highest bidder. Disgusted that she actually assisted in cruising orphanages with Robin, her college boyfriend, Devan goes out to find help to stop her father. She comes to finds out he's a little fish in a huge pond. She meets Kent, Langston and their group who all have strange powers, only to finds out she is the strongest of them all.
I made the mistake of reading the series following this series (For the Love of Fae) first and fell in love with the characters. Even though I had a hard time understanding them at first. Now I see why, I needed to read this story to understand what was happening.

"Witch Way Bends" made an okay free read. It did have an original and rather interesting plot. The writing style was decent. However, the character development was lacking so I really didn't connect with the characters as much as I would have liked. The pacing of the story was pretty good and there was action. There were also a pleasing variety of supernatural creatures. I really didn't fill the chemistry between Devan and Kent and at times Devan kind of got on my nerves. There are a couple of intimate scenes but they were so nondescript that the story actually would have been fine without them. Everyone just isn't cut out to write love scenes. I considered reading the next book in the series but at 3.99 for 128 pages I think I'll pass. Besides, I simply wasn't impressed enough by this book to sent 3.99 on the next one. Moreover, the plot in the next "Novella" appears to focus primarily on Jill Devan friend turned vampire and I'm not that interested in her story. I did like Devan's friend Rooney. His antics and comments added a bit of humor to the story. I think that "Boomchikawowow" will stay with me for a while! LOL There were quite a few editing errors but for the most part I managed not to be too distracted by them. The story didn't end on a cliffhanger per se, in that the main villain in this story was dealt with, but questions regarding Devan's ancestry did remain unanswered.

However, when all was said and done the story just didn't leave me completely satisfied. It's difficult to explain what I mean. When I finished reading the book I was simply done I didn't feel anything, e.g. no elation at the outcome, no stupid grin on my face, no excitement,no slight warming of the heart, no feelings of sadness b/c the story ended, or excitement to post the review so I could read the next book. None of the emotions that typically linger when I reached the end of a story that has truly captivated, enthralled or thrilled me.
