Mia’s life is thrown through a loop when she discovers her family secret — that she and her brother Dino are witches. After they are sent away to study their craft, they begin down a path that will change their lives forever. Suddenly thrust into a world where handsome warriors command the power of nature and people’s thoughts and actions can be manipulated at will, Mia and Dino struggle to navigate their own allegiances and do what they know to be right when everything around them seems beyond their control.


Brother and sister find out they aren't who they think they are. Their lives change when they find out they're witches and they have to go live at the Glass Castle, a place where witches go to learn to use their skills. Dino and Mia have different powers and learning what they are will come easier to one than the other.
 This story is written really well, the relationship between Dino and Mia is realistic, the typical brother and sister way, funny comments and irritation.
 When Dino becomes distant to Mia, she decides to look around the castle, getting herself into danger with the alternate type of witch to herself. Hunters although part of the castle, are trained differently, to be almost animalistic. Danger seems to follow Mia when she starts to have meetings with Colt, one of the hunters. He is sure of himself and thinks seeing Mia is  pointless, nothing for him to gain and wrong. He is very funny though and his sureness just adds to him being a very attractive character. So when he helps Mia she finds herself falling for him.
 While all this is going on, Dino is having meetings with someone. These shape the story into the drama of Dino finding himself,  will he go with the temptation of power?
 The characters in this are brilliant, each having been thought out, worked on to the point they appear real. This story is full of twists and turns, it's interesting with not a part being boring. Something is going on around every corner and i can't wait for more books by this author.
