The Six Days (2014)

The Six Days

Jamie, Callem and Danny had been left behind by their mother since childhood. 15 years later, they discovered the truth behind their mother's disappearance. the lighthouse had always been a ghastly place for the town, many version of stories were told since it never light up. but one night, it mysteriously light up. the very night they found out about their origins, Danny was kidnapped. with limited knowledge about their witch mother, Jamie had to go into another world through the lighthouse to save his brother. desperation drew the brothers into the political war between the Council of Witches and the rebel group Jamie's mother had led.

i received a free e-book from the author in exchanged for a review. the book started out being an easy read, however approaching the second quarter where they ventured into the witch world, i started losing interest, especially with the political war. the explanations seemed to go on and on that i had to force myself through it with the hope that i will reach the part where the story will finally grab me again. as much as i love the supernaturals, i couldn't grasped the beauty of scenery or buildings, or worst, armies. fortunately i did manage to reach the part where everything seemed interesting enough, making the wait worthwhile. with so many characters in the book, it was most intriguing who Nia would ended up with. at first it seemed obvious that it would be Jamie, but soon it became a puzzle when others were involved.
