Melhara by Jocelyn Tollefson (Book Review #117)


This review was written for Online Book Club

“I rate this book 2 out of 4 stars.”

This book was an “OnlineBookClub.org Book of the Day.”

The story begins with Kyra being a witch. She is happily married to James and has a boy named Xavier. Kyra is very close to her family. No one in particular besides a few that Kyra trusts, know about her real powers. Her brother, Axel and her friend, Alexis, also happen to be a witch. She constantly has these weird dreams and is not sure why. In an unfortunate event, Kyra is kidnapped alongside her family. She is then blackmailed to do as she is told by an immortal demon, named Alastor

The story begins with Kyra being a witch. She is happily married to James and has a boy named Xavier. Kyra is very close to her family. No one in particular besides a few that Kyra trusts, know about her real powers. Her brother, Axel and her friend, Alexis, also happen to be a witch. She constantly has these weird dreams and is not sure why. In an unfortunate event, Kyra is kidnapped alongside her family. She is then blackmailed to do as she is told by an immortal demon, named Alastor or else she will lose everyone in her family. Kyra makes an ever-lasting deal with him. Alastor has to protect her family from any possible harm, and so she joins him.

Alastor and Kyra begin this adventure of destruction, chaos and spread evil throughout the world setting they are in. Alastor teaches Kyra how to use her magic in ways she never knew before. Kyra changes and the powers she possesses is released onto Alastor’s ultimate goal, eradicating the government, changing good to evil, corrupting the system and, creating a new version of The Purge.

Kyra’s family have to save her from what is happening.

This is a thrilling ride of continuous events that sum up a very engaging science fiction story. Melhara, is full of surprises and the messages of love, compassion, sacrifice, and self-doubt is filled within the content of the book. The world setting is described very well, and the casting crew was relatable. Every character has a backstory and is connected with one another. I enjoyed the family orientation of the story and the hidden message within the book was admirable. Sometimes holding back on your abilities and potentials can really turn you inside out. Having self-control and making a choice to be what you are is better than being scared and hiding from it.

There is sexual content within the book making it not suitable for a younger audience. The ending was strong, and I found the plot to be novel.

I highly recommend this book, and it was a pleasure to read. I look forward to reading more by this author.
