Finding out you’re the most powerful witch in the world should make things easy, right? Wrong! Join Layla as she abandons her lonely existence in Oklahoma and embraces a life full of magic, love, heartbreak and danger…

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.

Stretching from coast to coast and teeming with loathed villains and beloved heroes, Descension is rich with emotion, magic and intrigue. Whether the reader is laughing, crying or falling in love, they’ll find themselves invested in Layla’s fate through the rich dialogue and emotionally driven characters that weave the web of this fiery tale.

The cover is great, so witchy. You can feel what it portrays on the cover.

The book started off slow, but I understand the author wanted to show Layla’s background and the heartache that she felt. Layla had no idea she was adopted. Slowly but sure, she found her soul mate. It’s magical how Layla and Quin found love, and their path leads to the new magical world where witches and wizards live together in harmony.
Layla is likeable. She has the qualities of a heroine in a story.

I also love Aedan and Rose’s story. I think the author should write a book about them. I was blown away.

Agro is the lovely villain. In my imagination, he must be dark, mysteriously handsome with piercing eyes.

It’s an emotional journey and I want to visit Oregon someday.
