Things are changing for Audrey, and not in a good way. She goes to school one day with the nagging feeling that her mother is in danger. When she goes home, she is greeted with her supposed cousin Sadie. She tells Audrey that her mother is gone to deal with a family emergency. Audrey is skeptical though, because she has never met any of her mothers side so can't see how her mother would up and leave without telling them. She has no choice but to accept it till she can talk to her mother and find out whats happening. Add in strange occurrences at school, things happening by themselves, a hot boy and diary entrances and you have a recipe for a winner!!
First things first, I loved the recipe entries!! Be them cooking ones or spell ones, I thought it was a unique and fun way of doing it, plus you may learn a new recipe from it :) .
Character wise, every single one of them was well thought out and developed. Audrey is a smart, no nonsense girl who loves cooking and chemistry. She was witty, brave and strong. Meg is Audreys' sister and I loved their relationship. To Audrey, Meg has everything, she is a musician and gets all the guys but that doesn't stop Audrey from looking out for her and trying to protect her. We have Sadie, who is the "cousin". She was like a cool aunt to the girls, which I loved. She was only a few years older than them so could easily relate to them. Then we have the awesomeness that is Julian. There are sparks between him and Audrey but he affects her in ways she cant explain. He was such a sweetheart too though. So loyal, caring and nice.
The plot moves along nicely and I loved finding out about Audreys' powers alongside her. Audreys' heritage was fascinating and intriguing. The bad guy was well developed as well and at a certain part I thought he was truly evil, but then something developed that made me think that he isn't as he seems.
In all this was a witty, quick and thrilling read. I pretty much loved everything about it and can't wait to read more from this author. It's definitely one that everyone should check out.
Natalie Duke was perfect for this book. She had pep when needed and really brought the sass out in the characters. She brought Audrey to life and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the story.

I think this is a well written story. I could not stop listening. Natalie Duke did an excellent job of making the story come to life inside my head. I can't wait for the sequel to come to audio format.
