Publisher's Summary

"You've just always been the powerful one. I'm the smart aleck."
"We're the same. I'm night, you're day. You have to have both to have life."
"You can hide in the shadows."
"And you can shine like the sun. This prophesy is about both of us."
Destiny doesn't think she's anything special. The daughter of an outcast witch. Her twin, Fate, is her best friend, so that's awesome. They're experts in love potions and selling them to crazy high school kids.
So they can buy more shoes.
But that all changes when their school is attacked by warlocks - warlocks who want her power for their own. The attack launches her onto the path the stars have chosen for Destiny, Fate, and their long-lost father.
Oh, and Quin.
Quin, who's the son of a witch, only tolerating Destiny's presence because she can save his mother. Except along the way, that all changes, and he realizes Destiny is everything he never knew he wanted. The only problem is she thinks if love can be made from a potion, it can't be a real thing.
If they survive this, he's going to prove her wrong.

Awesome... Just Awesome!

Fate and Destiny are twin potions witches, one light and one dark. They live with their mother, outcast from any coven, and create their own love potions to sell to their classmates. Their aunt, a warrior witch, occasionally shows up to request new potions to aid in the fight against the warlocks. But what Fate and Destiny don't know is that all the other potion witches have been killed, and without their backup the witches are slowly losing the war.

The girls start at a new school and Destiny rubs Quin, a popular football player, the wrong way. Quin just happens to be the son of a warrior witch. One day, warlocks attack their school, and Destiny joins with Quin to fight them. Both of their mothers are injured as a result of the battle. Quin, Destiny, Fate, and Fate's boyfriend Damien need to find a way to save them, and to fight off the warlocks determined to take their magic.

I think this book just made me fall in love with the paranormal fantasy genre! There's a lot going on in this book, a war between the witches and warlocks, fight to save their mothers, reconnecting with old family, learning about the witches' history, and the new romance. Despite all of this, it was written with a good natural flow and pacing, with no large info dumps. I was intrigued from the beginning and couldn't stop listening to it. The world the author created is fascinating, and I really wanted to learn more about it.

Any book that had me laughing out loud in the first paragraph is a winner. Fate and Destiny were awesomely snarky. They had this great banter between them that anyone with a sister would recognize. They're just incredibly likable, and the bond they shared with their mother was really special.

The narrator did a great job, she was easy to listen to. She did perform a different voice for male or female characters, and also gave Fate and Destiny distinct speaking voices. I thought it fit their personalities well. There weren't any jarring notes, and she narrated smoothly and never pulled me out of the story. I received a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Amazing Teen/YA Fantasy about Witches!

YA/Teen Paranormal Fantasy is my favorite genre. This book was awesome and I enjoyed everything about. The characters were well developed and interesting. I was totally absorbed with the story from beginning to end.

The narration was excellent and brought the story to life.

This book was packed with action, suspense, betrayal, misunderstandings, and love. Destiny and Fate are great witches with a big job ahead of them...

I'm looking forward to the next book. I'm glad this one did not conclude with a cliffhanger but I'm getting the next book soon. I really enjoyed this author's writing style.
