Have you ever wondered what could be hiding in the shadows?

Well, for eighteen-year-old Zahara Faraday, she doesn’t have to wonder. You see she comes from a lineage of Light Witches, those who have chosen to help protect and serve between the supernatural world and the human world. The only problem is Zahara, like her father Solomon, is as human as a human being can be whereas her mother, Mia, and her Aunt Catalina, were born as Light Witches. As a family they hunt down rogue supernaturals—creatures who harm humans or who have committed an act against their kingdom. 

Zahara’s hunting skills are usually kept dormant since her parents would prefer she live life as a normal human girl without knowledge of the supernatural world. She plans on doing just that—except when she finds a couple being attacked by fairies, she has no choice but to step in. Before she can return to pretending to be blissfully ignorant, Zahara encounters a problem she isn’t the least equip to handle: Bryan Hamilton, the good looking new co-worker she has to help train. In a heartbeat, her best friend, Becca King, has set her up on a double date with herself and her new crush, Rekesh Saint-Louis, who happens to be the most powerful leader of the biggest Imago Coven in South Florida –supernatural creatures with the ability to control water . . . and suck out human souls. 

Zahara has no time to focus on how she’s going to explain her double date with her best friend and the enemy they have a tentative truce with to her parents because soon one of the members of Mia and Catalina’s coven is found murdered with a strange tattoo of a snake with wings carved into his arm.

Zahara is then thrown into a whirlwind battle with an angel determined to have revenge against God, an Imago coven she doesn’t think they should trust, and slew of dream-eating fairies and powerful Nephilims, hybrid children of angels and humans, more than happy to rip her to shreds.

Normal just got a deadlier definition.

I love discovering new authors and cant wait for more books by Annabell Cadiz, the writing was well crafted, and characters developed nicely with the plots twist and turns that just kept me hooked. This is a paranormal trilogy to look out for and get your hands on it asap!

Lucifer follows Zahara a young girl who comes from a family of powerful Light Witches. Zahara is human unlike her mother and aunt, who carry the power. But an incident awakens a hidden power within her making her the perfect target for the very powerful Lucifer. Lucifer has a plan and Zahara is the key and he will stop at nothing to have her. Luckily for her, she has her powerful friends and family to protect her but at what cost and who can she trust?

Zahara is not your average type of girl she can handle her own in a fight. But her family is very insistent on her acting like she’s a normal girl even when she gets her powers. She’s the type of girl who never runs from a fight and will do anything and everything to stop the bad guy aka supernatural. She along with her best friend Becca are both very stubborn and get themselves in lots of sticky and dangerous situations. Becca was my favorite with her crush being a somewhat enemy, but a girl like her can change a guy? Right?

Bryan is a co-worker of Zaharas and someone who is hiding plenty of secrets. He is also the love interest and thank goodness for a well paced romance. It didn’t feel rushed and I enjoyed his character twist, along with working along side Zahara and her family.

Lucifer, I liked that as the reader we get both sides of the story from Zahara and him. I loved watching Lucifer pull together his plan and in the end the major shocker that connected everything. I didn’t see it coming at all! He’s the perfect villain. The readers are first introduced to him in the very beginning, which brings out why he wants vengeance years later. Cadiz did a great job with his side of the story and bringing to life a powerful man determined to get what he wants.

Overall this was an excellent debut novel and I’m definitely hooked! I can’t wait to see what Zahara and her family will do and what Lucifer’s next step is. A lot happens, the action and magic just keeps on going, I was pleasantly surprised with where this story went. Readers looking for an action packed, suspenseful, well written paranormal novel don’t need to look any farther, this is the book for you.

This is a Young Adult books with a mix of Urban Fantasy and Paranormal magic. Fans of the Angelfire series by Courtney Allison Moulton and Brodi Ashtons Everbound series will love Lucifer by Annabell Cadiz.
