Mark of the Witch

Mark of the Witch by: Jessica Gibson
Magic flows through Jillian Proctor's veins as surely as blood, but so far her life outside Boston has been peaceful. William Morgan blows into Jilly's life like a hurricane, unleashing her magic and sending her out of control. Unknowingly, William brings an enemy who only wants to posses the power of the witch. Jilly must learn to harness her magic before she loses it - and everything in her life is destroyed.

“You may as well come out,” she called. “I know you’re in there.” Both girls scanned the trees for any trace of movement.

Finally, off to their left, a figure emerged from the thick brush. It was a man neither of them recognized. He was short and wiry, with bright red hair and freckles. Jilly thought he was almost too adorable to be afraid of. Almost being the operative word. He came to a stop about six feet in front of them and held up his hands in a gesture of peace.

“I don’t mean you any harm,” he said, reiterating the gesture. “I’m only here to set up a meeting between you and Sabine,” he said as he nodded his head in Jilly’s direction.

“And what if I don’t agree to this meeting? Will you mean us harm then?” she asked as she slowly rubbed her palms together. She felt the familiar reassuring tingle in her fingers.

“Sabine doesn’t want you hurt. She just wants to talk, but if I have to hurt you I will.” He walked a step or two closer. The look on his face was anything but friendly.

“I’d stay where you are if I were you,” Jilly said forcefully. “You really don’t know me.” She rubbed her palms faster. Her palms and fingers were glowing by now.

The man looked at her and shrugged before charging toward her. Jilly put up her hands and grabbed his arm; he went down fast. She kept a hold of his arm until she felt the warmth in her hands start to fade, and yelled for Caroline to make a run for it.
 My Review:

A whole whopping 5 Stars

I bought this book for my Kindle app on for my phone.

I have been sick for the last few days so I wanted to settle up with a book to read and I have been dying to read Mark of the Witch.

I absolutely loved this one!!!  This kept me enraptured from beginning to end! It has been the fastest I have read in a long time. (I have been sick and told everyone to leave me the heck alone ahahah.)

We follow Jilly Proctor who gets her witch powers at age 13.  Her twin sister, Caroline, wanted nothing to do with them. 

Jilly and Caroline at a young age had to endure of a loss. In which causes the sisters to go their separate ways.

Heartache and cheating brings them back together.  Caroline ends up welcoming her powers.

A mysterious man, William, comes into Jilly's life.  He has been searching for her for years, and when I say years think like years that Edward has been searching for Bella.

Unfortuantly William has an ex chick that even though they have been over for hundreds of years, the broad can't leave the man alone.  Therefore, going after Jilly to try to get him back. 

They have to prepare for battle against the ex chick, Sabine. 

One ends up with a knife plunged into their chest, falling dead to the ground.  (of which I was NOT expecting!)

Kudos to Jessica!! I truly enjoyed your book and I can't wait for the next one!!!
