Tales of Aradia The Last Witch – Volume 1 by L.A. Jones
About the Book:
Unknown to the humans who hung innocent people at the Salem Witch Trials real witches of the hidden race were killed for fear of exposure. There was not one witch whom survived the genocide of the Salem Witch Trials or at least that's what all the vampires, werewolves, fae, shape-shifters, and other members of the hidden race all thought. But one day a girl named Aradia moves to Salem, MA and all that changes.
About the Author:
L.A. Jones is a twenty-four old college student from Bethesda, MD. She has a mother, father, and a sister who is also in college. Her greatest passion is her writing, and hopes it will give as much joy to her readers as it does for herself. Tales of Aradia the Last Witch is her first book series. You can contact her on Tales of Aradia's Facebook page.
I loved the beginning of the book when Aradia appeared to such a sweet couple. The first part of the book was enchanting. As the story line grew and expanded, it took off in many directions and I found keeping the characters straight a little tiresome. I feel this was due to the grammatical errors, having to figure out what the word was, and then having to re-read the sentence.
The book also contained too many grammar and punctuation errors that were easily found and corrected.
Keeping in mind that the book was YA, I think young females will enjoy the adventure and personality of a kick-ass girl like Aradia. We would have loved to have her talents when we were young. The book does have potential. I am not rating the book because I am finding that YA is not my favorite genre and I would be biased if I did so.
