Not long after they start to explore their newfound abilities, they learn that a powerful warlock is heading for their town.
I was hooked from the second page of this book and didn't want to put it down! This is one I will be recommending to readers, especially those that like Spirit Animals. I can't wait to read the second book in this intriguing and captivating series!
