Summary: (from Goodreads)
Anna Winterson doesn't know she's a witch and would probably mock you for believing in magic, but after moving to the small town of Winter with her father, she learns more than she ever wanted to about power. When Anna meets Seth, she is smitten, but when she enchants him to love her, she unwittingly amplifies a deadly conflict between two witch clans and splits her own heart in two. She wants to love Seth, to let him love her – but if it is her magic that's controlling his passion, then she is as monstrous as the witch clan who are trying to use her amazing powers for their own gain.

The Story:
You follow the main character Anna, who moves with her dad from London, till a small city called Winter. They move into this big house in the middle of the forest, also known as the witches house.

My Opinion:
I really liked this book. Though not much happened in the beginning. I never lost my interest in this book. I chose to give it 5 out of 6 stars.

Because you fall in love with the characters and the story is told in a kind of a realistic way.
It´s really well written and you can totally follow Anna´s feelings and thoughts.
Which is what I really liked about this book :D
And I really look forward to reading the next book, to find out of what will happen next :)

And I just need to say it. WOW this cover is awesome :D I really like it :)
The best part of the book was definitely the romance part :)
