#Review: Mystical – Michael Weekly
Eliza Rose is a witch, though she prefers to believe that she’s anything but that. She yearns for a normal life, one where magic doesn’t surround her. Deep inside, she knows she’ll never have what she yearns for the most. But that doesn’t stop her from trying to live the life she’s always wanted to live.
Michael has written a story that grips the reader from the moment they open the book. Eliza’s life is surrounded by shadows and secrets. Though she does her best to understand what her mother has been keeping from her for years, it’s hard for her to accept the fact that she’s a witch. In this day and age, witches are a thing of the past. Until her life takes an unexpected turn, it’s then she starts to believe in the unknown.
We find ourselves immersed in Eliza’s plight, meeting a slew of characters along the way. I like the way Michael has turned the lore surrounding elves, mermaids, and fairies around in such a way that it makes you want to know more about why these creatures are so evil. His twist on all things witches is also quite intriguing.
Though Eliza starts off as a clueless teenager, unsure of what she should be doing when it comes to her magical powers, she grows into who she becomes. She has a difficult life to accept, but she does so knowing that things will eventually turn around. I’m looking forward to more of what Michael has in store for Eliza and the rest of her magical world.
When Eliza Rose found out she was a witch, she thought she’d be casting spells…
However, it turns out Eliza is on her way to becoming a mystical assassin. But first she has to start college with her best friend Dawn Roberts and her feline familiar Jared. If you think college is stressful, try finding your best friend being seduced—nearly to death—by a venomous fairy. Something is horribly wrong, and Eliza must find out what it is.
Knowing who’s who in the Mystical world can be a burden—or save her life…
Murderous mermaids, seductive fairies, and manipulative elves are terrifying enough, but pure witches can become corrupt…and they’re the most dangerous creatures of all. Eliza struggles to discover the source of this chaos, but is repeatedly attacked—and saved by a shadowy figure. On a very personal note, Eliza must learn whether corruption is beginning to claim her mother.
Her strongest ally might be handsome, enigmatic Donovan—but he is hiding a shocking secret…
Donovan wants nothing to do with his old gang—not after the things they’d made him do. But when he meets Eliza, he’s both frustrated by her amateur skills and impressed by her emerging strength, and he feels compelled to help her grow into the assassin she’s meant to be.
Every answer has a price, and there are beings born to corrupt the pure.
Eliza fights to master her skills before it’s too late, while Donovan must determine whether Eliza can be saved…or if she must die to keep her out of the hands of those who would use her powers to reign over all of Mystical.
