Rhiannon Godfrey's birthday is coming up soon and she can't
wait to celebrate with her friends. She hasn't been at
Crystal Lake High School long so the party means a lot to
her even if it is hard to keep her Wicca lifestyle a secret
from everyone. Before her birthday, Rhee gets to go to
her first school dance with her first boyfriend, Jared.
When Jared's twin sister is in the line of danger, Rhee
thinks nothing about pushing her out of the way to save her
even if it means she will get hurt herself. However
everyone oversees the hero factor and Rhee suddenly finds
herself the subject of a nasty town wide smear campaign
against her wicca family.
Rhiannon's friend and ex crush Matthew arrives on her
family's doorstep saying he wants to move in. Taking off
from the institute of Parapsychology means that Matthew has
Dr. Edwards and Mrs. Richards not far behind him. They
want him to return to the institute but Matthew has other
ideas. He can't remember about his past and thinks that
the pills the Doctor is making him take are the problem.
However if he doesn't take them he gets extremely painful
headaches, but if that is the price he has to pay to find
out what really happened to his parents and why they gave
the Doctor full custody of him as a child then that is what
he will do.
The connection between Rhiannon and Matthew is so strong
that she starts seeing what really happened to Matthew as a
child. Seeing his memories with her telepathic abilities
helps them both slowly put the pieces together. But will
it be too late? Someone is trying to keep the past a
secret and if they don't find out who and why soon it may
be too late.
This young adult story is the sequel to Her Wicca, Wicca
Ways. The first book really set the scene and now this
second book is building on the story and making everything
more and more interesting. With so many nice characters
this is a joy to read and with a great plot filled with
mystery, suspense and a lot of paranormal aspects woven
into it, this is a story that keeps you guessing and
interested right to the end.
I hope there will be more Rhiannon Godfrey books in the
future. Traci Hall writes a thrilling young adult novel
that adults will also enjoy.
