A Marked Past By Leslie Deaton
Lyla was an excellent character she was her moms rock she tried everything she could to make her mom smile and not think about the bad things, wanting to care for her and help her mom keep on going after her dad died. So that was really nice of her. Some of the time I found her a little bratty but then again I knew why, her dad did die and now her whole life was changing right in front of her eyes.I really felt bad for her mom she was the one having a harder time recovering after the loss of her husband. And that made me sad. But I loved her she was a great character also. I felt the same way for Nathan he was so lovable, sweet and he tried everything he could to take care of Lyla he acted like he was her father and wanted nothing to happen to her cause he was the only one left who could do that.
I liked the names the author chose for some of the characters especially cause I thought the name actually suited her. Hana reminded me a little bit about myself because she was really brave and confident. No matter how much she got taunted she tried not to let anything bother her. The names for the powers they each possessed were very interesting.
I really enjoyed Caleb's character I thought he fit really well in the book and his relationship with Lyla was perfect it grew more throughout the book and that was what I loved about it. I really liked the writing style of the author and I liked that she chose to write about witches and the salem trials while adding her own twist to it. I am glad that I got the opportunity to read this book because I definitely did enjoy it
