Enchanted Island Series Book 1
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.
I really enjoyed ‘The Witches Lottery’ it was a fun, fast paced read. This book has all the mythical creatures you could ever want warlocks, witches, prophets, leprechauns, selkies, and even dragons. I’m pretty sure I even missed a few. So if you enjoy fantasy or paranormal reads, this book is definitely right up you alley.
I thought it was a very beautiful story with a main character that I could relate to. She loses her parents and really feels lost and confused in this world but she is determined not to give up. She has to keep living her life and take care of her brother but she finds it hard to trust anyone, with good reason because her and Drew, her brother are sent to an island to live with an aunt she has never met before. Strange things start happening and it’s up to Sophia to figure them all out.
I like that Sophia wasn’t your typical heroine, she was quirky and a little bit unsure of herself but she also finds so much strength from what her parents did for her. I enjoyed all the different mythical creatures in this book; it was cool to see them all in this element, all of them working together and as a sort of family. ‘The Witches Lottery’ had a great plot and I really found myself getting lost in the story.
It was one heck of an adventure and I found myself on the edge of my seat, dying to know what was happening to Sophia and what was going on, on this island. Oh and the ending, oh my talk about a good ending! That really threw me for a spin.
It was a great read, with fun intriguing characters, and I can’t wait to read more about them. It was really a mystifying book and I would highly recommend it!
