#Review Today is publication day for The First Wave: The Weight of Magic Episode 1 by Lana Melyan #PublicationDay #BackaBlogger #TBConFB @lanamelyan

Today is publication day for The First Wave by Lana Melyan which is the first short story in The Weight of Magic series. This is a  brilliant first instalment for this series where you  have the opportunity to get to know the characters and a glimpse into the world they live in.

I really enjoyed getting to know Nicky & Connie as they transition from normal teenage life to a life including their powers. With Gran and her much loved bookstore and a powerful warlock as a Father, these best friends are eachothers confidantes and take everything on together.

A superb first book that leads you into the series, I can’t wait to read the second book to see where this series is taking us as I felt bereft when I reached the end of this book and wants to know what comes next.


Book Blurb

I’m the daughter of a powerful warlock. Magic is in my blood.

Something bad is brewing in the magical world, and I can’t wait for my powers to kick in, so I can help the coven, be useful. But I’m nearly eighteen and still not a witch.

Where did my magic go? And why do my witch parents act so suspiciously when I come to them with my questions?

On the first day of school, I notice a guy, too old to be a student. He watches me from afar – sometimes with a smirk, sometimes with a frown on his handsome face.

The question is – what does he want from me?

My best friend Connie thinks it’s merely an innocent flirt, but something tells me that the answer is more complicated than that.

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
