I bought this on sale for $5.00. Good thing, because the books are very short-- not worth an entire credit.
The main protagonist is a high school girl and I usually don't mind that, but she is very boring. Not much personality, confidence or anything to say. The author spends too much time on the monotonous moments of high school. Maybe if I was a pre-teen, this would be exciting, but this type of YA lit doesn't translate to adults.
That said, I gave the second book a shot, hoping the series would pick up the pace. Unfortunately, it did not. Worse, all the books end on a cliffhanger. It's popular these days, but it's a cheap trick. I want a full novel in itself.
Also, the narrator is stiff. She sounds like she's reading the story for the first time. She does a great Irish accent in the second book, but it's not a great performance.
I didn't hate the series, but I certainly won't finish it.

First in this series of a Wiccan coming of age story. It's interesting, if teenagery and angsty. It restoked my interest in Wicca and I liked the story. I'll probably read the next one!
