The review of this Book prepared by Rachael

The Blood have waited centuries for the coming of Witch, the living embodiment of magic. But Jaenelle, the young girl prophecy spoke of, is haunted by the cruel battles fought over her future power because not all the Blood await her a their savior, but as their puppet. Her guardians have healed her physical wounds, but her mind is still fragile, protecting itself with a shield of amnesia. When her memories return she must be ready to accept her fate and responsibilities that come her her power.
