Book Review: A Witchy Beginning

Title: A Witchy Beginning (Scarlet Summers #1)

Author: Jessica Samuels



Scarlet Summers was just your ordinary high school student, and never knew her true heritage. Until her junior year which is when two sexy transfers came to her high school and turned her world upside down. She is a vampire witch which is rare in their world, and her best friend Annika her witch guardian will be there to watch her powers grow.

My Review

5/5 Stars

When two new transfers come to Crystal Crest, Scarlet and her best friend/guardian Annika don’t know what to think of them. Scarlet and Annika are in for a surprise.

So I liked this book. It was a sweet, easy read. Annika and Scarlet had a pretty straightforward friendship. Even when Zion and Nathan made their appearance, the two girls looked out for one another. Their relationship was easy and believable. Scarlet was a strong MC, and I found myself rooting from her from the very first chapter.

The world of Crystal Crest is an interesting one with vampires, witches, and sometimes hybrids of the two. The scenery of the Realm was described in a way that made it easy to picture everything without standing in the way of the story.

If you’re looking for a cute YA vampire/witch story to pass the time, this is a good one.

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.
