(Port Lewis Witches #1)
Ryder is a witch with two secrets—one about his blood and the other about his heart. Keeping the secrets hasn’t been a problem, until a tarot reading with his best friend, Liam Montgomery, who happens to be one of his secrets, starts a chain of events that can’t be undone.
Dark magic runs through Ryder’s veins. The cards have prophesized a magical catastrophe that could shake the foundation of Ryder’s life, and a vicious partnership with the one person he doesn’t want to risk.
Magic and secrets both come at a cost, and Ryder must figure out what he’s willing to pay to become who he truly is.
Warning: Scenes of bloodletting and death (and resurrection) of an MC.
- Too brief to put down
- Ryder's sister is really cool
- Ryder's family is also very accepting of him and his many contradictions…*
- There are secrets coming out all over the place in this book
- A non-binary character was included in this story**
- Hip deep
Mood Upon Completion
- Very few typos
- Decently hot
- Decently sweet
- How everyone seems to think that just because they have magic they have the right to meddle in other people's business
- ...but as soon as his friends find out his biggest secret, they want nothing to do with him; kind of the opposite of what usually happens in M/M stories
- It feels like I'm jumping right into the middle of a story
- After it's made clear that Ryder and Liam are interested in each other, there seemed to be a lot of unnecessary angst; Liam wants a relationship, but Ryder is still hesitant
- I wish that we learned more about Liam's background; there wasn't much room in this book for him
- Weakly emotional
- Drug use (consensual, marijuana, main, one, present)
- Character death (major, one, present)
^I don’t quite get the symbolism of the 5 moons, though.
*Ryder has a lot of conflict within himself – physically, magically, and emotionally
**There aren’t many books out there at all with trans protagonists who have adventures like this. So often, the stories are focused on their trans-ness and not the rest of them – similar to how gay romances tend to be centered around coming out or rejection/bigotry. That’s not all you guys are, so why aren’t there more books that reflect this?
