You know I really didn't like Paige in the second book of this series so I wasn't expecting too much from this book when I started reading it. Of course, I was wrong to be so passive about it because I absolutely loved it.
Paige is unexpectedly thrust into the role as guardian/caregiver/parental figure/friend/teacher to an extraordinarily talented 13 year old witch, Savannah. They both have had to deal with their own fair share of loss and disappointment. And they're just trying to work through these new adjustments together. Paige is also head of the Coven, although the Elders of the group seem to be treating her as if she is an imbecile. With all of these things to work through Leah is back on behalf of a demon who claims he is Savannah's father and he wants custody of her. Paige immediately knows something is up and refuses to give up Savannah and things of course get out of control from there. With some unwanted help from an unsuspecting source, Paige is determined to keep Savannah from harm.
Paige and Savannah have both lost their mothers in the past year. They've both have had to deal with some things that people should never have to deal with. And yet, they pull together. They argue and butt heads but I really love their relationship. It's not easy, it's not always fun, but they pull through and you can see that they really care about each other. Savannah needs Paige. And as much as Paige thought she was "doing right" by taking Savannah, Paige needs Savannah too.
Unwanted help comes in the form of sorcerer and lawyer, Lucas Cortez. Paige has a hard time trusting him because he's a sorcerer and his past comes into the picture to break down Paige's trust where it had just been built up. It's interesting to see him become a dynamic in this story. There was a love story between him and Paige that I thought kind of came out of left field at first but as it progressed, I really liked them together.
This book is pure madness. And I loved every page of it. Honestly, if I could just continue on with a series with this group, I would be happy. I know I'll probably see them throughout this series but still I ended up loving them so much. I can't wait to see where they end up and how Savannah turns out. I highly recommend this series so far and I can't wait to read more.
