I was offered the opportunity to review Amaretto Flame the debut novel by Sammie Spencer. The main character, Olivia, is an extraordinary witch of nineteen years, who is to be the next high priestess of Eagleton Coven. Her powers are destructive, something which bothers her a great deal. She lost both of her parents when she was young and was taken in by Ivanna to be raised with her own kind. Everett, Max, and Sylvia are her coven siblings, and she and Everett are inseparable.
Which makes her banishment to a human town that much more difficult. Olivia is expected to live as a human, something she’s never had to do before. She gets a job at a bar and makes friends… with humans. It’s something she never thought would happen. Apparently, we aren’t as bad as she thought. Enter hottie musician Jackson Vance.
I loved this book. There were twists and turns and nothing was quite what it seemed. The characters were well written, and I enjoyed them all. They complimented each other well. The story unfolded in a way that kept me guessing. I only figured out the twists just before Olivia did. This book definitely doesn’t disappoint.
Olivia has spent her life learning about her enemies, the deadly Venator - including how to kill them. What she knows nothing about is whiskey, playing poker, or rugged, copper-haired musicians. As punishment for a small 'crime,' Olivia is sent to a safe house in a human town and forced to live as one of them for a summer. There, she meets the charming Jackson Vance, and her real education begins. She soon discovers that she's being hunted, and figuring out why means she uncovers a secret that threatens to end everything she's ever fought for.
And now… what you’ve been waiting for… the winner!
