Nineteen-year-old Mercy Habernackle is a witch gone off the rails. Causing problems with the law in her hometown, she's faced with two options. Go to a correctional institution or get shipped off to witch boarding school, or as her mother prefers to call it, finishing school. Choosing the latter, Mercy's mother, Linda, drives her daughter cross country to the Paranormal Institute for Witches, situated high in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains in cozy Aspen Falls, Pennsylvania.

I really enjoyed how this story flowed. It grabbed me and sucked me in right from the start. I'm not a fan of cliffhangers. The narrator did good though something's could be improved upon in establishing identities for the different characters. I look forward to the next book in this series.

I have no complaints as I follow this series and this book did not disappoint! The relationship between parents and children was sad and I really felt their loss.

Charlie Rhodes life has taken a turn. Not only is she working her dream job, but she’s also taken on a dreamy co-worker and is officially dating the office security chief. Yeah, she’s still trying to wrap her head around it, too. She doesn’t have much time because a high-profile incident in Florida means the team is on the hunt, and this time the likely culprit is none other than a prehistoric shark that’s been extinct for millions of years.

Before she can celebrate the good news, a terrifying bounty hunter kidnaps her mother. In a race against time to save her mother, Kate runs afoul of a dragon, and even worse, the most feared creatures in existence: the dreaded forest gnomes. To top it all off, she discovers long-lost magical family members who maybe should have stayed lost. Kate is finally a witch - but it just might kill her.

As far as the story went I got a little bored with the storyline. I normally love listening to YA books but I feel like this was a little more for younger teens. Not sure if this is one of the narrators first books or not but I could hear her taking in breaths which was slight but still noticable. Also, not sure about the room it was recorded in but it didn't sound like it was well prepped for recording. I did like the narrators voice and would not mind trying another book narrated by her.
