Devastated by the loss of her mother, Triss throws herself into uncovering clues surrounding her mother’s disappearance. When the Witch Avenue Coven turns their back on Triss, she realizes she’s caught in a world that is ruled by Lonely Souls. But who is controlling them?
Recognizing the herbal lore she grew up learning will do little to fight against the underworld, she is relieved when her best friend from childhood, Logan, returns to help her find answers. When they begin uncovering secrets from her family’s past, she learns her mother might not have been the only target.
But as Triss falls deeply for Logan, she discovers her family isn’t the only one with secrets and his may be deadly.
Where to Find Danika Jayde:
A great read, had me hooked from the first chapter. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. The fact that the main character Triss’ mother has disappeared from the very beginning had me enthralled with the story, and the idea of the Lonely Souls captivated me from the moment Triss had her first encounter with the unnerving beings.
When the return of Triss’ childhood friend Logan re-enters her life, the internal struggle she has with her mixture of emotions I found to be quite relatable. Her dealing with the potentially romantic encounters and still trying to focus on the important things in life was something I think was well described._
There were situations that weren’t all that surprising in their outcome to me, for instance certain characters that were apparent in their intentions, but others that I didn’t even see coming with how their lives intertwined with Triss’.
The character building itself was quite well done with the main characters, for instance when it came to the description of Logan’s eyes changing at certain times of conversation and situations, but I feel more could have been used to build the personalities of the supporting players, but was good enough for characters with minimal parts.
If there is anything that I would have changed, and this is only slightly, is the seemingly continuous mention of Triss’ distaste and worry of Logan’s sway to Dark Magic. In my opinion it could have been done in a different matter that didn’t feel like that friend that continuously says the same point over and over again trying to get it across and more like a struggle of trust.
The part that Triss’ father comes to play in the plot of the story has me curious as to his true intention towards both Triss and her mother and makes it so that I can't wait to read the rest of the series.
