Book Review On Devlin’s Descendant by Felicia Tatum


Warning: There are a few spoilers in this review.

Devlin’s Descendant is book three in the White Aura series about a sorcerer family with an evil curse.

This book doesn’t disappoint, and I loved the new developments in this tale.

The story begins with Aiden’s capture. The Crimson Calamitous who is a wicked sorcerer kidnaps Aiden and had once used him as a vessel. He warns Aiden about using his body again to get what he wants. Aiden is surprised to discover Scott’s brother Sebastian is working with the Crimson Calamitous by allowing him to reside within his flesh.

Meanwhile, Scott and his younger sister Sadie tell their grandmother about Devlin’s descendant. Grams is just as shocked as they are on who it is, and she vows to help them find a solution to this heart wrenching problem.

Aiden’s captor releases him with the promise of coming back to possess his body. Everyone is happy when Aiden appears at Scott’s house–especially Sadie.

This is one of the developments that delighted me . . .

Sadie and Aiden.

The more I read this series, the more I’m loving Sadie’s character. She turns sixteen in this book, is becoming a powerful sorceress, and she’s sassy. I love how she is.

Aiden gives subtle hints about his feelings towards Sadie, but she keeps denying how he makes her feel. She even gets annoyed with how her body reacts when he’s nearby, like butterflies in her stomach. It’s cute, and I love Sadie’s demeanor in trying to brush off her growing attraction towards Aiden.

Towards the end of this story, Scott, Olivia, Sadie, and Aiden are forced to take a trip to the mountains where deep inside the Sorcery Council awaits their arrival. When they confront this group, they’re taken aback by one of the members and shocked by the information given to them. I loved this unexpected surprise and the other one that follows when the four of them are back home. This last one is freaky, and I’m looking forward to finding out what’s going to happen next.

Felicia did a great job in keeping this story interesting and has the wonderful ability to keep surprising me along the way. :)
