About the Book

A school for Witchlings…

The ultimate choice between Light and Dark…

Where the price of a mistake…is your soul.

Sixteen-year-old Summer doesn’t expect her new boarding school to be any different than the rest: a temporary stay, until her uncontrollable magic gets her thrown out again. In her mind, there’s no point in getting too friendly with anyone. That is, until she notices Decker, the boy who will become the Master of Night and Fire on his eighteenth birthday.

When she learns that this special school has attracted others with magic in their blood, she is hopeful that this time around, things may be different. Besides, she can’t deny her interest in Decker, and when he rescues her one night from the dark forests of the Rocky Mountains, their connection is instant.

Yet a relationship with Decker may prove to be Summer’s downfall, forcing her to choose between Light and Dark, life and death, love – and their souls.

One choice. One soul. One price.

My Thoughts

What can I say.. I absolutely loved this book.

Do you believe in having a soul-mate?

The one person in this world, that completes you.

Summer was orphaned at a very young age. She was always having problems fitting in at her schools because she was “different”.  When circumstance brings her to a school for kids like her, she still struggles to fit in but succeeds in making some new friends. When things go bad she has to make decisions.. Is she strong enough to find the light?

Or will she falter and fall to the dark?

There are rules. For both light and dark.

Those who break those rules are forced to reckon with the Masters for both sides. They just happen to be really handsome TWINS. When summer meets Decker the boy who is to become Master of the fire and night on his 18th birthday, she thinks maybe she has finally found her place in this world. And as it sometimes happens fate steps in the way.

I could not put this book down, I love Lizzy’s writing style. She never disappoints me. This was the first witch book I have read that had this take on things. I really enjoyed the characters and their interactions with one another.  There is a definite cliffhanger at the end, but this is book one in a series. I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series  Autumn Storm.
