I want a Marcus. All to myself.
Now that that's out of the way, I will continue.
I adored the plotline and concept of this book. In full disclosure, I am a huge fan of books with witches in them and this one ticked lots of boxes for me.
Girl who doesn't know she's a witch? Check.
Strong, silent, hot guy who doesn't care? Check.
Evil witch set to destroy girl who doesn't know she's a witch? Check.
Oblivious parents? Check.
Random family member who knew all along? Check.
Possession of friends by evil witch? Bonus Check.
Creepy haunted evil hotel? Bonus check.
Characters with past lives they knew nothing about? Bonus check.
The only criticism I have about this book is that I felt the major plot lines took waaaaaaaaaaaaay too long to develop. There were so many revelations in one spot so far deep in the book, I feel like some of them got buried and weren't given enough thought. Sprinkling some of them throughout would have made the final chapters much more intriguing and would have made the reader more engaged. Instead, we're hit with numerous many things at once.
I will recommend this book to students who enjoy paranormal and/or horror books.
