Uncaged Review – Maiden by C.L. Marin

Maiden
C.L. Marin
Young Adult/Paranormal

Tara secretly wished her estranged father would want her around, so when he unexpectedly contacted her, she agreed to get reacquainted. That wish turned into a nightmare.

She learned that she is an Authentic Witch—the Maiden of the Moodus Coven—and the key to obliterating the black magic Haddam coven. Tara’s mother took her into hiding when she was small in order to keep her alive but the Haddam’s found her. Now Tara must trust the help she’s found in her three close friends, one mystifying new love, and a father she barely knows as she fights for the life of her mother using a power she doesn’t yet understand.

And one of those trusts might cost Tara her life.

Uncaged Review: A terrific debut novel – with well developed characters and great world building. The pace is spot on and the author keeps you on your toes – if you think you know what’s going to happen, you may be surprised, and figuring out who the good guys are and the bad guys are, are not as cut and dried as you might think.

A bit of a cliffhanger ending, but just enough of one to want to pick up the next book in the series.
