Book Review: Marked for Them (Witches of Rose Lake Coven #1) by Lia Davis

Kindle Edition, 124 pages
Hiding out in a mental institution isn’t glamorous. I call it surviving.

I’m blissfully unaware of the world outside the walls—and spell—that hides me. Until the ghost shows up with talks about his friends being marked by a demon. Oh, but not just any demon. The same one who has marked me and wants me dead.

My Father.

Fearful daddy dearest would be my next uninvited guess, I make the choice to follow the ghost to his four, very alive friends. To my relief they want my father dead as much as I do. One thing I’m not prepared for is finding out that Zane—the alpha wolf shifter—is my mate, and the demon mark links the five of us—ghost included—together on a deeper level than I thought.

Teaming up and facing the demon stirs up passion and dark secrets none of us are ready to face.

So the cover of Marked for Them features a leather-clad buxom blonde standing in front of four jacked dudes. Four guys, one girl; I liked those odds. I was in. The premise goes like this: Reese is half-demon, half-witch. Her father, a power demon, marked her for death. Seeking human recruits to help in the effort, daddy demon marked five teen boys as well, demanding they submit to his will, hunt and kill Reese. As the teens grow into men, they thwart the demon and face deadly consequences. Through paranormal intervention, Reese joins with the men, a witch and alpha shifter among them, and comes to find they’re fated mates. All. Of. Them.

Hot, right? The story ended up being rather lukewarm. While the premise is great, the character development and romantic tension fell a bit flat for me. Relationships, characters, and scenes of romance are hastily developed. The story also ends in a cliff-hanger; definitely not my preference. I feel with a slower roll out, Davis could’ve more fully developed a pretty compelling concept. I’m not giving up on the Witches of Rose Lake Coven. I’d still like to see what kind of magic this interesting little coven creates.
