Good Reads Synopsis
|When teen witch Ivy MacTavish changes a lizard into her date for a Halloween dance, everything turns to chaos. And when no one is powerful enough to transform him back except Ivy, it sparks the rumor: Like father, like daughter. Ivy has heard it all before - that her father, who left when she was seven – was involved with the darkest of magic.
Making the rumors worse, someone uses an evil spell book to bring back two of history's most nefarious killers. Ivy's got a simple plan to set things right: find the real dark spell caster, steal the book, and reverse the spell. No problem! But she’ll have to deal with something more dangerous than murderous spirits that want her and her friends dead: the school’s resident bad boy and hotter-than-brimstone demon, Nick Marcelli. Nick’s offering Ivy more than his help with recovering the missing book – he’s offering her a way to ditch her scaly reputation as a lizard-lover. Demons are about as hard to handle as black magic, and as Ivy soon discovers, it’s going to take more than a lot of luck and a little charm if she wants to survive long enough to clear her status as a dark witch, get a warm-blooded boyfriend, and have her former date back to eating meal worms before the week’s end.
It took me a little while to start this book after I received it but finally got around reading the book this week. I liked the entire world created in this book.
Ivy a witch in her try to capture the attention of the boy she likes is driven to turn a toad lizard in to a real boy which comes back to bite her in the ass, not literally of course. When her magic is hard to un do, Ivy is accused to becoming more like her father. Ivy and her friends are on to the mission to solve the mystery of who has The Book Of Lost Souls, a book that resurrects the dead. The story kept throwing off too many suspects and I kept guessing who actually had the book.
Nick Marcelli a demon and quite hard to resist when his charms is thrown in the mix in Ivy's life. Making Ivy confuse to which boy to actually choose.
Overall a good book, I liked it and was hooked on it till the end although there were some very cheesy lines and I really really didn't expect a teenage boy to be that much.. ah well cheesy. But very cute nonetheless.
I give this
