Fawn and her twin brother Alec are turning sixteen. They come from a long line of witches but only Fawn will become a witch. She is the seventh generation, and there is a prophecy that she will save the world. Of course you know this means that Lucifer wants her, so he approaches God with a bargain, if I can turn her bad she's mine. God see a way to save someone else's soul in the process and agrees. Enter Caleb, an angel of Lucifer that is assigned to seduce Fawn, but nothing goes according to plan. The Belgrave Daughter is the story of family and love, of trust and redemption, of sacrifice and faith. Lucifer may be the great trickster, but he is up against more than he bargained for in the Belgrave family, because when you attack the daughter, you get the whole family. Zara Hoffman does an amazing job of conveying the emotions and feelings of the characters in a true sense, making them feel like something you or a friend might have actually experienced.

The Belgrave Daughter is set to be the first is a series called the Belgrave Legacy, so there is the promise of seeing these characters again in future books. The characters easily and quickly become part of you and you want to help them, to hold their hands and tell them what to do. I know that I cried right along with Fawn throughout the book. Zara Hoffman writes like she has been there and that these are her own experiences, so they feel real. You can relate to the characters. This is a young adult novel, and I felt it was perfectly suited for teens and young adults. I feel adults would even enjoy the novel as I did. I have no problem passing this book on to my own teenage daughter to read.
