~New Review~

Tales Of Aradia
The Last Witch
Volume One
by: L.A. Jones
Unknown to the humans who hanged innocent people at the Salem Witch Trials, Real witches of the hidden race were slaughtered on the belief that they had betrayed the hiddens to the humans.  Not one witch survived the genocide, or so it was believed for more than three hundred years.  Until one day a girl named Aradia moves to Salem, Massachusetts, and all that changes...
~My Review~
Aradia is found by her adoptive parents Ross and Liza in the wilderness.  From the moment they adopted Aradia ,they know something is special.  As Aradia grows up she finds that she can do magical things that no one else can do. 
     Aradia is not your typical teenage girl.  Her parents move Aradia to Salem, due to a job transfer for her dad.
 She dreads a new school, but soon will find out she is entering a world of vampires and werewolves. Among these worldy creatures, there are many hiddens around Aradia.  At first she has no idea;  She also has no idea what she is.
Aradia's dad is the DA to whom of which comes in to try and help solve a murder.  Aradia has powers to see things that have happened in the past and wants to help her dad solve the murder.
As time goes on Rai (Aradia), makes friends and realizes the school she is now attending has some very peculiar things happeningHer and her new found friend Roy, and her love interest Dax, go through out the story trying to figure out who is responsible for the murders. Along the way Aradia also discovers she is a witch;  The last witch!

I have mixed feelings on this book.
There were parts to where it would grab my attention and I would be very entertained.  Then I would come to a part to where it would drag on and explain much more than needed be.  I would easily get bored and it took me longer than usual to finish this book.  Don't get me wrong, I loved the story line L.A. Jones put together.  It just didn't hold my attention the way I wanted it too.
There were a few editing issues, but nothing to make a huge stink over.
In my honest opinion, it is one of those books that an individual would have to pick up and see for themselves.  There were so many lighthearted and humorous moments.  Aradia is a beauty to love. You have my opinion, but I also think you should judge this book for yourself!
I give this book 3and a half NarlyNut stars
