Fawn Belgrave is a seventh generation witch and she’s one of the most powerful witches. Her powers come to her at her sixteenth birthday and after that she’s afraid to uses them. There is a prophecy about Fawn where she can save the world, but she doesn’t believe in this. She live her life without using her power, but one day she met Caleb, she doesn’t know who he is but she’s attracted by him. Caleb is Lucifer’s right hand, and he must corrupt Fawn so Lucifer can use her powers for himself.
Fawn has a twin brother; Alec, in the Belgrave family the power goes to the woman but Fawn and Alec are close to each other’s. Her best friend is Ivy, she’s also her roommate and she’s a little obsessed with men and sex. Fawn is a good girl, she’s going to school, never miss, she loves her family and Ivy and she never do a bad thing. She’s afraid of her power since her sixteenth birthday but Caleb is here to changes things.
Caleb is so intense, I like this character, he is well describe and I want to let him hug me and I think it’s the devil side in him that attracted me so much.
I also like Ivy even if I suspected whom was Ivy, it is always good to be right and to like what the author proposes us.
Lucifer and God himself are so amazing, they are so powerful but they play games like kids with the life of others people and I really think they can do that. It could be the real life.
This story is thought well, I like the characters and their interactions. I like the evolution which the author gave to Caleb and I find that his relation with Fawn is pure. Fawn irritated me a lot sometimes, all right she was betrayed but at one point, it’s necessary to recover from it and to listen to its heart. I like Ivy, she’s a great friend and she gives good advice. I like Alec too, he’s a protective brother and I like when he talks with Caleb.
The dialog between Fawn and Caleb are fun and I like the way they interacted together. Some people would say that Fawn is a naïve girl and yes but she’s also strong when she has self-confidence. This happens when she is with Caleb because he makes her trust herself and on the other side, Fawn allows him to find a little his lost humanity.
The story is developed well and I like very much the way Zara describes the characters, that makes them more real.
I was really transported by this story which even if it’s not perfect, it’s a very good discovery.
