Lottie’s parents hang on, convinced an old magic will protect them and their family home. All magic comes with a price. Lottie fears if the magic is real, the price will be her own life.

 

 

My Review

4/5 Stars

Lottie is happy in the town of Delta. As her 17th birthday approaches, she’s introduced to her great aunt, Flora, who for mysterious reasons, does not leave her home. When the government comes in, interested in breaking the nearby reservoir, they leave the residents no choice but to leave. Lottie refuses though, confident that there are outside forces in control. Forces that will keep her and her family safe no matter what.

Like other Jordan Elizabeth books, this story packs a real punch in just a couple hours. The plot was intense, and Lottie was a relatable character. The ending of this novella makes me curious as to what book two could have in store.

Narration fit the tone well.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
