Tamsin Greene comes from a long line of witches, and she was supposed to be one of the most Talented among them.

But Tamsin's magic never showed up.

Now seventeen, Tamsin attends boarding school in Manhattan, far from her family. But when a handsome young professor mistakes her for her very Talented sister, Tamsin agrees to find a lost family heirloom for him. The search—and the stranger—will prove to be more sinister than they first appeared, ultimately sending Tamsin on a treasure hunt through time that will unlock the secret of her true identity, unearth the sins of her family, and unleash a power so vengeful that it could destroy them all. This is a spellbinding display of storytelling that will exhilarate, enthrall, and thoroughly enchant.
Who wouldn't read a book with this amazing cover? Well, the book is as awesome as how the cover looks like. It's an amazing book! I loved it from start to finish! Tamsin was a great protagonist; brave and determined...but also a little naive. That's what I liked about her. The family dynamics that the author develops is elaborate, and at the same time, simple. All the family members of the Greene family was developed and unique.

MacCullough's writing style was smooth and flawless. The language was rich, but also suitable for a teenager's POV. Another aspect of the book that really stood out, was the relationship and dialogue between the characters. MacCullough was able to let the reader get a feel of how everything works, through dialogue and distinguishable actions.

Overall, I loved this book! I recommend this to everyone! You will enjoy it and won't regret reading it.
