AToMR Tours: Descension Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway

The Angel
After three years caring for her dying mother, Layla Callaway learns she was adopted under unusual circumstances. Following a cryptic message to seek her birth family in Oregon, Layla uproots her lonely life, quickly finding she descends from witches and wizards. Magic is in her blood, and a handsome family friend is eager to prove it. Through a ring imprinted with her birth parents’ memories, Layla’s enigmatic past comes to light, presenting possibilities and trials more chimerical than her wildest dreams.
The Guardian
Quin’s natural charisma yields plenty of witches, but he longs for the lost witch – the mysterious Layla. He's dreamed about her his entire life, envisioning the day he would lay eyes on her face and aura. When that day arrives, not only is he breathless, he’s confronted with the challenge of a lifetime – an innate need to keep her safe and forever by his side.
The Hunter
Employing fiendish manipulation and manpower, Agro uses the arcane force of others to elevate his supremacy and wealth. Nothing pleases him more than latching on to a mystical vein, and never has there been a more enticing source. The divine witch will be his.

Descension is the first book in The Mystic Series by B.C. Burgess. While tossing up blog tours with Mel, I snatched this one up-- I've been dying to read a good witch story lately, so my expectations were high. While the writing is good and the plot is not weak, I never made friends with it. And it's all just personal preference-- I'm almost positive at least 90% of you all would love this.

Let me explain-- The only reason I do not love this novel is the love story and the similarities to another set of books I did not like at ALL, so I found myself comparing the two. So my slight "blah" here is all self inflicted...

The good: Descension is a detailed story with a difficult and interesting love story, with a great twist and intriquing plot. And even though I wasn't blown away, I will definately be sticking with the series!

And now, because we love you guys, here's a giveaway!

I'm a small town girl with big dreams and a wild imagination. I'm addicted to coffee and writing. The combination is my idea of heaven. I read every day, if only to my young son, whom I hope to someday inspire with my passion for writing.
