Lies and secrets abound in Dianna Hardy's novella, The Witching Pen. Elena discovers there's a lot more to her than she was ever told. With demons trying to seduce her in her sleep and her suppressed feelings for Karl trying to surface, she doesn't know how to stop her world from crumbling around her.

Elena is a thirteenth generation witch. At a young age, her mother told her being a witch comes with responsibilities; she will not be able to have a normal relationship or sex.

Nathaniel haunts Elena's dreams and watches her from the dark until he makes his true intentions known. With the help of friends and family, Elena will uncover secrets as well as a way to prevent a demon portal from happening.
The product preview for this book is good but I don't think it does this book justice. I thought the story would be a certain way from reading the preview but it turned out to be a great start to a good series. The book had a certain simplicity to it in the beginning but later on as the story progress the characters and plot spoke volumes. The characters were all interesting for me. Katherine, Elena's mother seemed a bit cold but has a few secrets of her own. Amy and Mary are very important characters, as I believe their stories will be next. Pueblo seems to be a possessive and sexy demon and I think his story with Amy will be interesting. Karl is Elena's best friend. I have to admit I was not sure what to think of Karl but scene after scene he became sexier. After Karl's ordeal with Elena before and after, previous scenes started to make sense and came together. His role within the story was truly an unexpected surprise and added some excitement for me. Gwain was an interesting character as well; I just wanted to point that out. Saying what his role is will probably give away some of the plot. Lastly, the Shanka demon, Nathaniel, he is a villain need I say more.
I enjoyed the book and l'm looking forward to book 2 to see where the author takes Amy and Pueblo's story.
Story: FAIR to GOOD
I purchased the next one as soon as I finished with the first and also got the Prequel "Wilted" I can't wait till the the third book is out... hanging in suspense. I can't say enough how happy I am to have found this Author.
I will recommend this over and over to anyone looking for a good read. This is a must have for sure.
I can't wait til the next installment to see where this fantastic story is going.
What an incredible mini-series these books would make. I can only hope someone is pitching this somewhere as a film project.
