4 1/2 Stars
Have you every wondered what it would be like to wake up and find you have magical powers? What if the people in your nightmares, both good and evil, were real? If you find these questions enticing, this book is for you.
The main characters are strong willed teenager girls going on sixteen. The problem is that they will receive magical power they know nothing about on their birthday. Strange dark men are chasing them, and they have to find out why. Character development is consistent as the girls learn what it means to work as a group, and be part of a coven. The responsibility of a nation falls on their shoulders, and each one rises up to the occasion with what they have to offer. They also have a fairy and sprite queen, tagging along.
Ms. Webb starts with tension and maintains it at an even keel until she reaches about the middle. She turns up the temperature, and keeps it rises from there. There is no swearing, although there is some violence, but it isn't over the top. The boy/girl thing is absent, although who knows what will happen in book two. While this story has a satisfying end, it does end with a cliff-hangar.
