After a tragic incident with a Ouija board, Callie was sent to live with her aunt in New Jersey. Now, six years later, she’s back home with her mother, grandmother and friends. Callie is a witch who has yet to grow into her full powers, but it’s predicted that when she does, she’ll be a force to be reckoned with. For that reason, her father, a power-hungry coven leader who has been estranged from her for her entire life, wants to control her. Her mother and grandmother are determined to prevent this.
Then, Callie meets a boy, a handsome, enigmatic boy, who stirs unaccustomed feelings in her. She senses that there is something unusual about him, and is reluctant to tell him that she’s a witch. Of course, when she learns that he’s an Immortal, a race of beings who live forever, and who are forever battling other Immortals to gain their power, she’s stricken. But, when her father and his minions decide to move on her, she finds that, despite the belief that witches and Immortals are like fire and water—they don’t mix—she must turn to Thomas for help.
Charmed and Dangerous by Debbie Herbert is a fanciful paranormal coming-of-age novel with intrigue, epic battles, and romance, and while it might have been originally written for a young adult audience, anyone can enjoy it.
