Goodreads.com Description: “Ash Sabien, a born mortal witch, was meant to be an immortal guardian, as was Soren Wade. But they were never meant to be lovers, which is why Ash fought the pull to him, sometimes venomously.
Days before the sacred holiday of the Day of the Dead a message was sent to their coven: diairoúmeno aíma enós epistrofí̱ sou.
It was a call to rise, a call to hunt what was revered by their coven and use it to stop evil. The honor of the hunt was given to Ash and Soren. When Ash rushed to tell Soren of the mystery before them the last thing she expected was to walk in on Soren with another girl. She bolted. He chased her.
Neither one of them saw the truck.
Neither one of them felt the pain.
Death came like a thief in the night.
Ash knew as she stared at the tragic scene that she’d failed her fate, they both had. She let herself feel, care—and now there was no telling what could happen because she had.
In death could they rise? In death could they finish the hunt and save more than them, more than their coven…?”

The Supernatural Chronicles: The Witches by Jamie Magee was the oddest (in a nice way) installment in the series. I was totally surprised by how this story played out.
Magee was ingenious, creating the characters. Imagine developing a character and giving her your name (Reveca Beauregard is another alter ego for Magee).
My favorite character, however, was Soren. Yes, he was distant and rather cold towards Ash. Although it wasn’t divulged, I suspect his attitude was an attempt to give Ash time to come to grips with their reality.
Ash’s character was admirable. She wanted to do the right thing by her sister, but in doing so, she was putting her own life on a backburner. It took a tragedy (and having to keep reliving it) until she realized how desperate her situation had gotten.
Most of Magee’s installation was about Ash and Soren instead of fixing The Veil. The story was intriguing and left me wanting to know more about this coven of witches.
