Rise by Sierra Cross

Sierra Cross
(Coven of Fire, #1)
Publication date: June 15th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Urban Fantasy
I closed the door on magic long ago…the day it made me an orphan.
Ten years ago, the Coven of Fire sacrificed their lives—my mother among them—to hold off an overwhelming demonic force. Now it’s back.
As a poorly-paid bartender, how can any of this be my problem? But Callie, another orphan of that battle, swears I’m the key to reviving the coven. And there’s an incredibly sexy guardian stranded on my couch who’s promising to help me stop the demons and keep the veil between the realms standing.
One problem: I’ve never been able to use magic. Our local bad boy warlock assures me I have the talent, but even if I did, we don’t have enough witches to complete a coven. The only way to survive is to pull together this pack of magicborn misfits, who have more secrets than spells, into a makeshift coven.
Can we—three untrained witches, a sarcastic warlock, and an overly intense guardian—take back the city…before the demongate falls and the forces that killed my mother destroy us too?

My Review:
Rise is book one of the Spelldrift: Coven of Fire series by Sierra Cross. For me it was a heck of a kick off too, I couldn't put it down. From pretty much the first paragraph this book had lots of action. Alix is a very likable character. I loved her attitude. Alix is very sensitive and tender hearted, just don't piss her off.  Sierra  Cross has done a great job with this series, I am on the look out for more of this series.

Alix was left an orphan at the age of 14 when her parents were killed in a bus accident, at least that's what she was told happened to them. Her Aunt has raised her since and has tried to give her a good life, or has she.

This book is filled with twists and turns and I feel like if I tell you about them I will spoil the story so this review is intentionally vague.
