by Kymberlee Burks-Miller

REVIEWED BY: Books4Tomorrow


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?


Although the new cover of “Compulsion” isn’t really my taste, the blurb did entice me to sit down and see what the story is all about.

I finished the book in no time, as the author’s writing is very simplistic and uncomplicated. She takes you into the lives of likeable characters who each discover their powers, grow as persons trough out the book; and a family whose bonds strengthen as they work together to face the dangers that threaten their lives and their very existence as a coven.

The author isn’t sparse with details on the characters’ every move, emotions and their surroundings which allow the reader to experience the warmth and closeness of the Moon clan firsthand. Lily, the main character, has a personality perfectly suited for the role she is given to defend her coven. She is strong, assertive and brave, but at times also emotionally vulnerable. Mason, who would give his life in a heartbeat to protect Lily, is every girl’s dream guy, and by himself a great reason to grab and devour this book. My favourite of course was Izzy the cat!

“Compulsion” is Kymberlee Burks-Miller’s debut novel and is an enjoyable, easy read which will appeal to the imagination of young adults across the spectrum. After finishing the last chapter of this magical book, the reader is left eagerly anticipating the release of the author’s next novel in this series.
