Title: A Question of Faith
Author: Nicole Zoltack
Genre: Coming of Age, Paranormal
It’s not everyday you learn you’re the incarnation of magic.
After learning her birth mother sought the help of witches to conceive her, fifteen-year-old Crystal’s previously unwavering faith is shaken. God hasn’t been answering her prayers like she thought–she was.
Crystal’s limitless magical potential is put to the test when her boyfriend’s mother is in a life-threatening accident. Surely God won’t mind her using magic to help people, but the miraculous outcome leaves Crystal wondering what she is capable of and worrying that her magic will damn her to Hell or, worse, prove she has no soul to condemn.
After her aunt is threatened, Crystal sets out to master her power, but flying and conjuring fireballs attracts dangerous attention. A witch hunter kidnaps her boyfriend, and shamans and witches hunt Crystal, desperate to use her to end a centuries-old war between the supernatural races. Her magic is an uncontrollable time bomb. If Crystal can’t figure out what she’s capable of, she won’t just fail to protect those she loves and end the war–she might start the apocalypse.
A Question of Faith is a great read. Crystal learns everything she ever knew is not as it seems. She must rethink her life and everything she has learned when she discovers where she really came from and what she really is.
I found the mix of faith and science fiction to be a great plot driver. The book was well-written and engaging. I had trouble putting it down once I picked it up. Crystal is a likable character who you will find yourself rooting from. Her intentions are golden, even if she has trouble controlling what is inside of her.
A slightly different twist on paranormal/sci fi with engaging characters and a story driven plot. You won’t want to miss this one.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
