Morgan: A Witch's Tale (book review & giveaway)
Morgan: A Witch's Tale was written by Angee Taylor. This tour and information were organized by N K Author Services. I was provided with a copy in exchange for my honest book review. All opinions are my own.
About the book:
He burst into her shop with a demon on his heels. He was asking for her help. She couldn't tell him no even if she wanted to. Protecting the city was her job. Now that she knows about the demon amassing a small army here, she has to take him down.
Will what she discovers about herself be her salvation or will it mean her death? Will meeting her soul mate during all this chaos make her vulnerable? Morgan has only days to figure out how to beat this demon and save herself, the city and her family. Will she save them all?
This wasn't my favorite witch story ever. It could have been that, while I appreciated the different character views (story telling changed voices/character perspective), switching point of view around distracted me from really finding an attachment to Morgan. I found myself wanted to like her more than I did. I also have to say that while I really liked Alex when he's first introduced... it disappointed me that his almost shy, questioning, looking for help demeanor changed so quickly into the guy who outright says he always gets what he wants. The same with Luke. He runs in looking for Morgan's help... but then doesn't quite react as expected to her leadership.
I enjoyed the story of Morgan coming into her true power and learning about herself through the story. Really... each of the characters kind of comes into their own through the book. The use of witch ancestors and blood lines to bring the story together was really interesting. And the twist at the end makes me hope we hear more from Morgan. (Or perhaps... a separate book for Lance & Art?)
About the author:
Angee was born in Houston, Texas in 1977, to an interesting family. Her mother and father separated when she was young. She lived with her mother who later remarried a wonderful man, who had a huge impact on her as she grew up. Angee has always had a love of reading, mostly paranormal. As a child, she would sneak up at late night when her mom thought she was sleeping, to read. They moved around a lot, eventually settling in Deep East Texas. Angee married at a young age and eventually divorced. She has raised her now 16 year old son alone. Angee works full time as a pre-hospital nurse and sometimes sees things that would make the rest of us have nightmares. On other days, she is blessed to see miracles. These things are what drive her to write.
Angee describes her job as- "I fight to save people's lives. Sometimes I lose, sometimes I win. It's the emotional roller coaster of that job, which leads me to writing. I'm able to put those emotions into my characters and let them out of my heart and soul."
In 2006, she was diagnosed with a rare disease, shortly after that she was told she would be on full disability in five years and most likely to be dead in ten. She's fought to live a normal life every day since and is beating those odds. She works at a demanding job, is a single mom, cares for an elderly mother, and a hyperactive dog.
