Megan Conroy thinks she has problems; she's struggling to pass math and with only one year of high school left she still has no idea what she wants to do with her life. She certainly never thought she'd become a witch.
A near miss from a speeding car triggers an inexplicable rush of power within her, leading to strange, recurring dreams and encounters with even stranger creatures. After being saved from a demon by her classmate Finn, she finally starts getting some answers. Meg, he explains, is now an awakened witch; a person whose dormant magic has been brought out by trauma. Real witches, she learns, are nothing like the broomstick-riding figures she's used to from movies.
The descendants of an ancient tribe who made an alliance with the Fae, Witani are born with magic and have the ability to see the spirits who oversee the natural world. She receives another shock looking through study abroad brochures when she finds a picture of the same standing stone from her dreams. This prompts her to choose Scotland as her destination, where the stone is located.
As she's drawn ever deeper into the secret world of magic and Fae, she wrestles with the dilemma of whether or not to tell her parents about her new life. But its not long before she has far more to worry about. Her arrival in Scotland sets a series of events in motion that will change her forever; bringing with it new friends, love, and danger.
This is he first book of Margaret Fischer’s I’ve read, and I hope there will be more after this one. It was a good read... well, okay, it was a good listen. The characters were easy to like, the details of the story, the quirkiness of it all had me enamored at times.
I mean, who almost has an accident and wakes up to be something different than you first start out in life. When Meg, the quiet, straight laced, high school student, discovers this very thing it throws her into a whole knee world. However, she’s not always good at landing on her feet. She has a hard road of ew things to learn, new people and places to learn about...
It’s a whole new world and thankfully Meg has new friends to help guide her in the direction of someone new, and a new way of thinking....
