Rebecca soon learns that her mother’s death was not an accident and that she was the intended victim. An ancient god has marked her for death and without the help of her new magical friends she is doomed. She has to learn how to defend herself—and learn fast. Rebecca’s Initiation will keep you guessing from beginning to end.

Rebecca has to go live with her grandmother after losing her Mom in a car accident. Her grandmother, Naomi, introduces Rebecca to a world of magic, with faeries, gnomes, elves, dragons… Meanwhile, Rebecca learns her mother’s death was not an accident and that she was the intended victim. An ancient God is out to destroy her. Now Rebecca has to learn how to defend herself, and fast.

This book was a short read, but it packed a lot. The characters are great, in particular Rebecca. My favorite part of the book, though, was the relationship between Naomi and Rebecca. I enjoyed seeing them bond as grandmother and granddaughter.

Very fast-paced, with a great cast of characters, this is a delightful YA book.


  1. Thanks for the nice review. I just wanted to say that Rebecca’s Initiation is free on Amazon this weekend. The next book in the series, Rebecca’s Destiny, is available for pre-order and will go live on Monday, Nov. 30.
