Thirteenth daughter. Heritage witch. Demon slayer.Definitely not something you would catch me reading. But, I decided to try something new. Change things up. I'm happy I did. Beautifully Broken, a paranormal romance novel, had a lot of twists and turns, a non-predictable read. Sherry Soule writes incredibly good for a debut author. Being only her first published novel, I had just little expectations. Sherry met them.
They say every town has its secrets, but that doesn’t even begin to describe Whispering Pines. The townsfolk are a superstitious lot and the mystical disappearance of a local teen has everyone murmuring about a centuries old witch’s curse.
Sixteen-year-old Shiloh Ravenwolf is a heritage witch from the Broussard family, a family both destined and cursed. When she takes a summer job at Ravenhurst Manor, she discovers a ghost with an agenda. That’s where she meets the new town hottie, Trent Donovan, and immediately becomes spellbound by his charms. Yet she is determined to discover the connection between them before it’s too late.
Finally, Shiloh's met someone who is supercute and totally into her, but Trent may be the next victim on the supernatural hit list. And Shiloh is the only person with the power to save him. Complicated much?
It sucks to have a destiny, especially since Shiloh would rather spend her summer being a normal girl who worries about clothes and boys, not the supernatural. But she’s never been
normal and the stranger things become the more her own magical senses awaken.
With cryptic messages from a pesky wraith, she will begin to understand the mysterious significance of the strange mark branded on her wrist, and decide how much she's willing to sacrifice to protect the other teenagers in town.
Unfortunately, for Shiloh, not all ghosts want help crossing over. Some want vengeance.
Shiloh Ravenwolf is a descendant from a line of witches. Some good, others that dabble in the dark arts. Shiloh is on the good side, only using her magick for simple things and a protection spell. The protection spell is used against a demonic force that is trying to steal her soul and drink her blood. With that in mind, Shiloh took a summer job at the town's haunted house, trying to get answers and get closer to the guy she has her eyes on, Trent. In the end, Shiloh finds more than she thought she'll learn and uncover secrets that people would bury.
