This is a long book so if you are after a book to really get your teeth into this one might do the trick. It has a bit of everything in a magical fantasy world you enjoy to read about. The author was very descriptive with her words and had you visualizing the items or places in her book. The first half of the book was very good and I enjoyed it the most but I found the second half a bit hit and miss both the story plot and flow of the story. Eva character was so strong and powerful at the start and by the end, I felt she had changed too much from the hero the author wanted us to have.
But saying all that I was glued to the end to see what would happen to only find out there is more to come. I received an ARC copy of this book and this is my honest and voluntary review. The story is told by our heroine, Eva she tells us that she is a witch and can live for hundreds of years, her job is to protect humanity from demons and other dark forces from taking over and controlling earth.
