Compulsion Review by: Kymberlee Burks-Miller

After Lilyann Moon's grandmother dies under suspicious circumstance,she and her eleven young family members are thrown into the world of witchcraft and the paranormal. A world they know nothing about, and need to learn fast! Lily's the most powerful witch in over five centuries, but she's untrained and uninitiated. 

Now the vampires have found out that the Moon line didn't end with her grandmother and they're coming to claim their prize, Her Blood! The only bright spot in this nightmare was meeting Mason, but is she in love with the enemy. She's in a race against time to save her coven! Will Lily survive with her heart and neck intact?

My Thoughts:
Well I have to start by saying this year has started off with a huge bang for me with the books I have been reading as of late.  They just seem to get better and better, every book I pick up to read are fantastic, and this book is right there with the rest.  I was on facebook one night and one of the other bloggers had a post to show this fan page some love, so I went over to check it out and the cover for this book caught my eye.  I liked the page and read the blurb for the book which drew me in some more. Now I love anything to do with witches and anything paranormal so this was right up my alley.  I emailed the author and asked if she could use another review and she said yes and emailed me a copy of her book and we were off to the races. 
I had a feeling it was going to be a good book, but, what I didn't realize was it was a GREAT book with a great story waiting to unfold for me. When I started I thought ok a nice easy read with a good plot, it completely took me off guard and became an awesome read with a fantastic plot, awesome characters and a book I just could not put down.  It starts with Lily, just your average everyday ordinary young lady going to college, she has a huge family, an awesome bestie and a Grandmother she loves greatly who lives on a farm.  All is well in her life going along with her day to day routine until she gets a phone call from her dad telling her her Grandmother has passed away.  From that moment on, absolutely everything in Lily's life changes, including meeting a handsome man, Mason, in a line up for coffee after almost running him over with her Jeep, she didn't kill him don't worry, good thing too cause from his description Mason sounds very dreamy.   

At the reading of her Gran's will from that point on everyone in her family, their lives all change, they find out that they are all witch's and they only have so much time to figure out their powers, grow them and learn how to use them as the wards their Gran has set are coming down and need to be built back up, if they aren't built back up the evil vampires are waiting to kill them all, all except Lily, they want her and her powers. 

It will take all the family's searching for the answers they need to figure out their powers, how to use them and to solve the family's past in order to defend themselves against the evil vampires now threatening their lives. Gran leaves Lily notes along the way to help them, but the rest is up to them.  This is an amazing book, filled with action, it will have you thinking along the way with the Moon family in their search for the answers they need to keep them alive, and a very sweet love story mixed into the book. I love how family orientated this book is, to me family is always most important.  Kymberlee has written a wonderful novel with an amazing plot that keeps you guessing, cheers the whole family on and keeps you turning the pages and won't let you put the book down until your done.  If you are looking for a book just like this, this should be the one you pick, you will not be disappointed.   Enjoy everyone!!!!
