The Witches Lottery (Enchanted Island 1)



Title: The Witches Lottery
Author: Krystal George
Rating: 4/5

Goodreads Summary:
When Sophia and Drew McKibben's parents are killed in a tragic car accident, they are shipped off to live with an aunt they never even knew existed. Believing that they are moving to a privately owned island just off of the coast of Mystic, CT to live alone with her, they are surprised to find a sort of under-aged bed and breakfast.

Sophia draws the attention of one of the locals, Falen, immediately. He always seems to know exactly what she is thinking, and to her frustration, everything she does seems to amuse him. When a newcomer to the island brings with him a sense of deja vu, she begins to ask herself the ultimate question: Am I going crazy?


Sophia's world starts to unravel when she notices her own brother acting just as abnormal as the rest of them. When she begins to realize that the life she left behind looks even more bizarre then the one she was forced to leave it for, she's faced with a decision to make: embrace the new life that has been given to her, or drown in the past. Either choice brings with it more secrets and deceptions to unearth. The problem now is that the two worlds may actually be more intertwined than she thought.

My Review:

I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review, I had actually signed up to read book 2 unaware that they were a series so the author being so great she sent me both so naturally
started with this one.
Sophia and Drew are shipped off to live with an aunt they never knew on Enchanted Island and the mystery that follows them and surrounds the Island was what kept me reading, the author had a way of being mysterious yet informative so it had me wondering and pushing on. I read this book rather quickly and I found it cute and exciting.
I liked the explanation for Witches lottery and just so you know I had a guess but I was WAY off oh and the books explaination was way better. I liked Sophia but I didn't feel a strong connection to her she was a little off in my perspective, Falon on the other hand I LOVED, he was carefree and funny and as much as I love a dark and brooding man it was nice to see something different. 
The ending was a bit shocking some things I expected but a few things were very surprising to me. Overall good book and I am excited to more on to book 2 and find out more.
