The future queen awakens…
Newly single mother Stevie Lewis divides her time between raising Charlie, running a store with her best friend, and avoiding the meetings of her mother’s Beaufort Historic Society. Although her life has its challenges, it’s altogether average. Just the way she likes it.
When Vanessa, a ruthless dark witch, launches an attack against young Charlie, Stevie’s simple life derails, and her long-dormant powers awaken. A 300-year-old secret is exposed, revealing her destiny to one day rule the clandestine community of witches who hide in plain sight.
Now she must master her own magical powers before it’s too late. Because Vanessa’s on the warpath, and only Stevie can stop her.
This is the story of Stevie and her struggle to protect her son Charlie, who has autism. She needs to protect him from a coven of witches that have set an attack on Charlie. She learns of her own powers and a secret that is 300 years old that will lead her to her destiny.
Stevie’s relationship with her autistic son Charlie is an interesting component to the story. We learn much about how she deals with him as well as how he thinks and relates.
Stevie must also contend with an ex husband and has several other people in her life.
I loved that readers are transported and get to delve into the exciting area of the supernatural, as author Lessey writes it well.
Set in the town of Beaufort, the descriptions of the scenery and characters are very vivid and well written. I felt like I was there and part of the story. A delight for the imaginary senses. This is a fast exciting read as the plot develops and moves forward quickly. The past is interwoven with the present so well, I was impressed by the authors ability to bring the two together in a meaningful important way.
The interesting characters are well written and developed. I loved their personalities, quirks and wit. They are all integrated into the storyline with precision and aptitude.
I loved “The Coven” By Chrissy Lessey. I couldn’t put it down and turned the pages quickly wanting to know what will happen next. This is an exciting read filled with twists, intrigue and witchcraft.
But it is also warm and down to earth as Stevie lives her life with her son and the others in her life.
This is an extremely well written book. You can tell the author has experience in writing. There is clear direction with the plot and the characters are woven in nicely. The storyline itself is imaginative and creative.
Over all “The Coven” is an excellent book worth reading. With a slight cliffhanger of an ending, we are looking forward to Lessey”s next installment in the series.
