While mourning the loss of a mother figure, Elizabeth Blake, a smart but socially introverted seventeen-year-old girl from Ann Arbor, Michigan, enrolls in an international school in the south of France to finish her final year of high school. Here she meets her true love, finds out that she is a witch from an ancient family, and discovers that her life is in danger.
Meanwhile, the Elders—the most powerful coven of witches in the world—have been tracking Elizabeth since her birth. According to an ancient legend, a battle led by “One barely born existing to lead” will cause the downfall of the Elders. Fearing that Elizabeth is the heir to this legend, the Elders try to destroy her before she can fulfill the prophecy.
With the help of her new friends, Elizabeth must travel to Greece to try and prove to the Elders that she is not a threat and to ask for their permission to exist in peace.
With the prospect of having to leave each other once the school year ends and return to their homes on opposite sides of the world, Elizabeth and her new love have to find a way to stay together. However, a rival love interest discovers their plan and causes the Elders to act against Elizabeth. As time runs out, Elizabeth must learn to use the powers she possesses to protect herself and the people she loves most.
I've always loved paranormal and fantasy romance books and I've read quite a number of books in this genre. So, when I heard about the book, Wicka: The Chronicles of Elizabeth Blake, I was quite excited to read the novel.
The book, Wicka: The Chronicles of Elizabeth Blake is a nice read for young adults or teens who love paranormal and fantasy romance books. I loved getting to know each character and the story is very interesting. It is fast paced and, as a fast reader, I finished the book in just a few hours.
The first few paragraphs of the book caught my attention and I wasn't able to put the book down. The story is captivating and I just had to see what will happen next on each chapter. I like how light and innocent this book is and how age-appropriate it is for young adults. I also like how this book has a combination of romance, humor, action and a bit of drama.
I loved how this novel brought me to a place where witches exist. Each character is interesting and I loved how Christy brought life to each character. The main protagonist, Elizabeth, is a smart and interesting girl and I like how she was portrayed. I love how she and William both fell in love at first sight and how their relationship developed throughout the story.
I was kind of sad when I reached the last page of the book because it really left me hanging. This has a wonderful story and I can't wait for the next book!
