The Golden Apple of Discord

Taralie Severin and her three sisters are a powerful coven of modern-day witches who banish mythical creatures in between classes and shifts at the police station. But when Taralie is kidnapped by vampires and converted into the undead, her sisters are ordered to execute her for crimes against the Milunfran order. Refusing, the sisters become fugitives from both their kind and vampires alike. Ignorant and hunted, Taralie becomes entangled with unlikely allies, a band of vampires in hiding from the ruling vamperic government. With this new addition to their coven Taralie must balance duty with desire while learning not everything is as it seems, their enemies are worse than she knows, and she could be on the verge of ending a thousand-year-old civil war.

My review:

To be honest I had a hard time getting started in this book. There was a lot to take in quickly and follow. You are thrown into the lives of four sisters who are half blood witches. Very strong half blood witches because they each have an elemental power creating a perfect four corner. I am not sure how schooled you are in the Wiccan religion, but four corners is good, very good.  The girls didn’t know their mother very well, she died in childbirth with her last child except Tara, the eldest. The story focuses around her a lot. She’s very powerful, a mimic. Mimics can use any persons power if they are in grabbing distance.  Tara seems to me to be a magnet for danger. It makes her character very vivid. The girls all end up being turned into vampires. I know I jumped ahead a bit but you need to read the story to get the full grasp on that part. Once they are turned they stumble upon a coven of male vampires, one who is named Alex. I really like the give and take of Alex’s character and Tara’s. I hope it is more explored in the next book. This is not a story that you jump into right away. It takes time and you need to give it some, maybe even read it in bits and pieces. It’s a good plot but not what I call a beach read. If you are looking for a different twist on Vampires and witches and are into the lore, it’s a book for you.
