A Marked Past: The Mercer Legacy - Leslie Deaton
Lyla and her mother move to Salem after the sudden death of her father. When they arrive, Lyla finds out that their family has many rumors about being witches. Upon finding out the truth from her uncle, Nathan, Lyla must focus on how to face the person responsible for her father's death. I liked the plot. It was a different take on witch stories. I also loved that it stemmed from the Salem Witch Trials. I didn't really care for the main character, Lyla. I couldn't connect with her at all, and wanted to knock some sense into her most of the time. I loved Hana though. She was likable and thought things through before acting. My only big issue was that I felt there were too many scenes that didn't need to be included. Otherwise, it was a great story line. 3/5
