The Omars, divided after all these many millennia into animals clans, were descended from Om and Omi, and were mortals. Although gifted in diverse magics, they refused to use their enchantment for personal gain, or to take vengeance upon others, and kept their lives as witches a secret. The Odish, by contrast, were descended from Od and Odi, and although fewer in number than the Omars, were terribly powerful, for they had devoted themselves to becoming immortal, preserving their lives at a terrible cost, and using their magic unsparingly, in the pursuit of their own ends.

But when her beautiful and vivacious mother, Selene, went missing, she was suddenly catapulted into a world she never knew existed: a world of women, wild magic, and wolves.

Had Selene been kidnapped by the Odish, led by the terrible Countess, and her lieutenant, Salma, who were intent on harnessing her power as the scepter-holder? Or had she gone willingly, in exchange for wealth, beauty and youth, thereby betraying the Omars? Or would Aunt Criselda, and the other Omar matriarchs, convinced of her guilt, get to her first? First though, the good. I really liked the ideas behind this story, and the mythology that Carranza constructed for her witchy world.

The overarching story of O and her descendants, specifically the burgeoning conflict between good witch Om and bad witch Od, is strongly reminiscent of a similar mythology used by American author L.

Smith, in her Night World books. In the Night World universe, two ancient witches, Maya and Hellewise, gave rise, with their very different philosophies and actions, to two separate magical races: the lamia, or vampires, and the hearth-women, or witches. According to literature, you slaughtered more than six hundred young girls in your Hungarian castle".

Was the similarity entirely coincidental? Or were both drawing on some other source - perhaps mythological? This is a world of women - not just run by women, but of women, and as far as I was able to ascertain, men had little to no role in it. There are plot lines left dangling - just who is Christine Olav, and what is her relationship to Selene? Finally, the language itself - and here I am not speaking of the storytelling choices, but of the construction of the text - was poor.

I tried to ignore it, the first few times I stumbled across an odd or incorrect word choice or the omission of a word that was needed , but finally it became apparent: there were serious style issues here. Powers increase in "size," rather than strength difficult to imagine, with such intangible qualities , Odish schemers "instigate" a human assassin from the shadows, rather than manipulating her: these kind of errors and they are frequent , even if they slipped past the translator, should have been caught by an editor, surely?

These issues, of writing style and translation, all detracted from my enjoyment, although not enough to make me want to stop reading, given my interest in the story. She is confronted with the shocking truth: her mother is a witch and the chosen one who will end the ancient war between two feuding clans.

This translation however felt a bit stilted. Sometimes the wrong words were used and I had trouble reading this book because of it. For such a short book I was also bored way too often. I had no other priorities and was still checking the length of every chapter. I even stopped reading in the middle of some chapters. It did get a bit better near the end of this book, but I was never fully engrossed.

You could say this book has two plot twists, although I am not sure if one was trying to be a twist. Let me tell you that the only person surprised by these twists was the main character. In the last 10 pages something was explained that was already obvious from page It was stupid to make that some kind of plot twist.

I want a character to learn and grow, not to be able to defeat her teacher within two weeks. And that she became beautiful within this story and that everyone wanted to hang out with her, for that reason. I also hated all of the characters. Mood and style seemed to change from chapter to chapter.

I suspect that a lot of this was due to a lousy translator. Perhaps this is a wonderful book. I thought the plot and characters had a lot of potential. But in the end, it is a failure, at least in I alternately liked and hated this book because the writing was so uneven.

But in the end, it is a failure, at least in English.
