Nera is a normal teenage girl living in Ireland, or so she thought until she discovers the family secret.. now her world is forever changed.
Descended from a long line of witches, she discovers she is the one who has to stop the curse that has taken the life of every girl before her.
And if that isn't enough, she must learn to use magic from the man called Bones. He is the son of Mari, Queen of the Witches...and a god. It is Bones who has been entrusted to teach her the skills she needs to stay alive, which wouldn't be so bad if he didn't have an uncanny knack for pushing her buttons.
Can Nera succeed and resist the charms of the man who gets under her skin at every opportunity?
About Ari Harper
Ari Harper never wanted to grow up.
To offset the limitations of aging ungracefully, she created her own set of unique worlds where she can be and do whatever she wants.
Gods, witches and demons surround Ari while she spins her magic, doing mainly what they tell her to do. Given a chance, she prefers to work amongst chaos, which is good because she is constantly surrounded by children, all clamoring for attention. Some of them end up in her stories, some of them even get to die grisly deaths or be cast away to another realm.
My Thought's on Witchling
Mystery, friendship, adventure, and witchcraft is everything that I love about a great fantasy romance. Witchling is the first book in the Curse of Kin Series. The story is written in first person following Nera, who is this spunky girl that’s not afraid to tell you what is on her mind. She finds out early on that she’s not exactly who she really is. I really enjoyed the characters that Harper created, both Nera and Bones. Holy cow did the sparks fly right away between these two.
Overall, I think Harper did a phenomenal job and not only creating the characters and telling their story but also with great detail.
I give Witchling 4/5 Stars
