Summary

From beloved author, director, and actress, Amber Benson...
Unbeknownst to most of humankind, a powerful network of witches thrives within the shadows of society, using their magic to keep the world in balance. But they are being eliminated - and we will all pay if their power falls... When Elyse MacAllister's great-aunt Eleanora, the woman who raised her, becomes deathly ill, Lyse puts her comfortable life in Georgia on hold to rush back to Los Angeles. And once she returns to Echo Park, Lyse discovers her great-aunt has been keeping secrets - extraordinary secrets - from her. Not only is Lyse heir to Eleanora's Victorian estate; she is also expected to take her great-aunt's place in the Echo Park coven of witches. But to accept her destiny means to place herself in deadly peril - for the world of magic is under siege, and the battle the witches now fight may be their last...

A new kind of witch

Very much the opening tale in a series, you are welcomed into Benson's coven of would be witches as they face a turn in the tide, their fates headed towards danger.
The characterisation of Lyse and Eleanora shows the maternal friendship between the two are both unified and separate. Their love for one another makes Lyse's journey into the unknowable believeable.
Add to the that a cast of women both young, old and older/ghost and you feel a powerful yet homely bond among the Witches of Echo Park.
While the action is saved for fleeting moments, you are easily submerged in Benson's world. I look forward to listening to the next instalment.

Enjoyable Light Story

This book introduces us to the Echo Park coven in Los Angeles, focusing mostly on its newest (and somewhat reluctant) member. The supernatural elements are mostly kept to a minimum, which strengthens the story itself.

Unfortunately, this is the only book of the series available from Audible (at this time), but the sequels would certainly make good airplane reading.

As a narrator, Benson is quite good with character voices and narrative voice. (I know this is true from works that she herself didn't write, as well.)

Enthralling

I was hooked with the first chapter. Enthralling. Amber added character into her own writing. it was hard to stop. I look forward to listening again.
