Book Description:

Stella’s college life transforms from sweet to rancid when her boyfriend asks her to do the unthinkable. How did she end up holding her best friend’s future in her hands? Anything she does will trigger the disastrous conclusion. If that isn’t bad enough.

Add in a lunatic minister, a demi-goddess, and a walk through another dimension full of vindictive shrubbery and wildlife. It’s far from the typical freshman year.

Available at Amazon
*I was provided a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Stella is not your typical college girl. She has a lot on her plate and even more to think about. 
This book was a short read, and it moved along at a steady pace. We learn a lot with Stella about her past, and mostly her insecurities. 
I feel that the book has a lot of unrealized potential. Stella is incredibly juvenile in her actions as well as her thoughts. She never really sees her good side and she is always accepting less than. 
When she makes the choice at the end of the book, #NoSpoilersHere, I felt it came out of nowhere. 
She makes several references to her Wiccan faith, but doesn't seem to practice it nor does it impact the story until the very end.
All in all, this is an ok book. I would have loved to see more, but I don't feel let down either. 
It touches on a lot of serious topics that I would hope are at least delved into for Book Two.

About the Author:
Rayna Noire is an author and a historian. The desire to uncover the truth behind the original fear of witches led her to the surprising discovery that people believed in magick in some form up to 150 years ago. A world that believed the impossible could happen and often did must have been amazing. With this in mind, Ms. Noire taps into this dimension, shapes it into stories about Pagan families who really aren’t that different from most people. They do go on the occasional time travel adventures and magick happens.
