REVIEW BY: Arianna, age 12 years, 10 months


This book is enthralling and leaves you begging for more! 

My favorite character is Connor because he is laid back and relaxed, but whenever you need him, he will be there for you. 

My favorite scene is the end when Juliet drinks from the vial because it makes me want to read more! 

I recommend this book to anyone who likes an amazing sort of magic, danger, and funny friendships. This book does contain inappropriate language for younger reads. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 13 and up. 

This book's publishing date is November 28, 2015.
