Power of Three


Power of Three (Daughters of Hecate – 3) by Meredith Medina

Being a vampire isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Am I really supposed to just wait tables and sling beer to punk kids for the rest of eternity? I don’t think so. Considering it wasn’t my idea to end up immortal in the first place, this is definitely not the spoopy life I had planned for myself. I’m tired of being told what to do by people who don’t know what the hell they’re doing either and it’s obviously time that I took matters into my own hands. I need to get the hell out of this city and figure out what I’m supposed to be doing for the rest of eternity.

Lacey Duncan didn’t ask to be a vampire, and when it comes to being immortal, it’s not surprising that she’s feeling a little unprepared, and maybe even a little abandoned. It’s not easy having a punk rock superstar for a mentor. Ophelia Turner is settling back into her own life, and with the added bonus (?) of having a new witch to train, she’s also been given control of Haven, the coffee shop she’s been working at for the last five years. Feeling more than a little left out, Lacey is determined to find her own path, and maybe even sort out her own place in the world. If that means leaving New York for a little while? So be it.

The only problem? Finding a new mentor isn’t like swiping left, and sometimes, the price of admission is too high.

Power of Three is a standalone Urban Fantasy novel featuring witchcraft, ancient witches, a few vampires, and a healthy dose of attitude. Follow the misadventures of Opheila Turner and her friends with the Daughters of Hecate.

My Review

4 Stars

Lacey is having a hard time being a vampire. Her mentor is no help, she feels trapped as a barista, and she wants to know more about being a vampire. Mais is obsessed with the book she saved from the fire and wants to learn more about the witch in it. Both girls decide to head to New Orleans to find the witch and some guidance. But the girls find themselves in trouble and Fee rushes to try and save them.

So the only book I have read in this series is the second book Moonlight Burns. I love how the story continues from there. Although it has been said that these books are standalones I do recommend reading them in order. I was not too lost in the last book but having read that answers some questions I had in Power of Three.

I feel for Lacey, she needs to learn how to be a vampire but has been cast adrift. I think she really needs to find some vampire female friends. I was worried about what she was going to get herself into by hunting down the old ones. Then there is Maia, she is clearly obsessed with the witch from the book and ever the wander ready to go on the road trip with Lacey without too much thought either.

Then there is Fee. She is still working through the issues from her past and struggling. She is having trouble with both her boyfriend and the girls but she is trying to be better working with the three of them. Of course she is the leader and rushes to save the girls in New Orleans.

I like this series and am curious about what is going to happen in the next book. I will be going back to the beginning and catching up on how this series started. I do recommend starting at the prequel Witchmark is you plan on reading this series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

I would like to thank Ari at Candid Book Reviews for the opportunity to read and share this book.
