Whisper of a Witch by Suza Kates
Shauni Miller and a whole bunch of other witches, who never knew they were witches, have been called to an island. They're mission is to destroy an ancient evil. First, they must become a coven to undertake this task. While there, Shauni Miller meets sexy guy Dr. Michael Black. How will he react to Shauni's destiny?
This book has a lot of characters which are all basically introduced in the first few pages of the book which made it difficult to keep all of the straight until at least halfway through. The characters are somewhat interesting although there's a lot of typecasting and for some reason everyone is gorgeous.
There quite a few cliches sprinkled all over the place for the way magic works and feels at times a hodgepodge of a lot of different myths. Also, there are random descriptions that felt like they were put in there because the author felt like it was something cool to say or had always wanted to put something like that in a book.
As a romance novel this is great. The plot is much better than most. As a fantasy novel this is rather ho-hum.
There will likely be a book for each of the witches in the coven with a sexy man to pair with each, but that's just my speculation. There is no formal word on sequels.
