Rating 2.5This was a very quick read but the transition between certain scenes left out a chunk of time that didnt feel completely natural. Even with the action some parts were a little dull and I had to push myself to keep reading.The magic was fun but overall I feel like the story was missing that wow factor. It felt like the typical urban fantasy with witches, angels, and other supernatural beings. I also noticed a couple grammatical errors but nothing major. Its possible my review copy wasnt fully edited.The worlds most powerful witch is coming of age and she has been prophecized as the one who will save the world. Lucifier makes a wager with God that the worlds most powerful witch can be corrupted and sends a dark angel to seduce her. I didnt really feel the threat of the main character Fawn having to save the world. The hunters posed a threat to her loved ones but I didnt feel that intensity of being in real danger since she can transport herself anywhere.For some all powerful witch the main character decisions were realistic but what are the chances she was born on Halloween. Shes strong but not invicible and shes not perfect at controlling her magic. Shes self sacrificing and cares deeply for her family and friends.I also thought Fawns best friend Ivy was awesome. I love reading about strong female friendships and this book had a great one. I really appreciated the no slut shamming approach the author portrayed.I also appreciated the importance of family. Her best friend and her family werent forgotten once she fell in love. It was stupid for them to separate when they could be taken hostage and used against her. I also dont understand why the charm was necessary if they already have an emotional twin bond, unless their mother also has a charm but that was never mentionned. There was also some other things that confused me but I wont mention them to avoid spoilers.The romance plays a huge part in the story and I wasnt invested in it as much as I would have liked. Although I didnt mind the love interest and he grew on me more and more as the story went on. Even though he was sent to seduce and betray her Caleb does redeem himself. No ones perfect. He wasnt too controlling which is usually my main issue with love interests. Caleb let her make her own choices and protected her with out being controlling. You could tell he really cared about her.*Received a copy in exchange for an honest review*Good The Belgrave Legacy Author Zara Hoffman are Book A Reluctant Heroine A Snarky Angel A Big Mess.Fawn doesn t believe in magic But it is very real, and has made her a vulnerable target Caleb is sick of Hell When the Devil offers him a way out, he immediately says yes Can this young witch trust the dark angel assigned to romance and seduce her Or will his betrayal tear them apart forever The Belgrave Legacy is an upA Reluctant Heroine A Snarky Angel A Big Mess.Fawn doesn t believe in magic But it is very real, and has made her a vulnerable target Caleb is sick of Hell When the Devil offers him a way out, he immediately says yes Can this young witch trust the dark angel assigned to romance and seduce her Or will his betrayal tear them apart forever The Belgrave Legacy is an upper young adult paranormal romance Filled with magic, witches, angels, and demons, this story will keep you turning the pages until the very end Buy the book now, and discover a world hiding in our own..

  3. This book was received via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I had mixed feelings about this book I really liked some parts of it and others I didn t I also alternated between being annoyed by the main character Fawn and really liking her I found that the first half of the book was really enjoyable and fast paced while the second half seemed to drag on a bit I don t really think that Fawn and Caleb s trip to gather allies with the Salem witches and other covens of witches was really nec [...]


  4. DNF at 40% The writing is terrible, and conversations were awkward and didn t sound realistic The story was silly, because things like a twin bond, having a guy say he s your guardian and believing him, and then dating him don t make any sense The main character is in college but reads like a preteen I definitely don t recommend it.


  5. I received a copy of this book directly from the author publisher in exchange for an honest review.I could not finish this book I wanted to In fact, I made it further into this book than I normally do when I DNF Chapter 19 67% into the story Let me explain what happened.This book started off slow There were tedious bits of over explanation of things the main character probably should have already known before the start of the story The author had a habit of introducing new things into the story [...]


  6. Actual Rating 3.5 Disclaimer I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for honest review Ready for some magic Fawn is a witch And a powerful one, at that In fact, according to an ancient prophecy, Fawn s magic could be the strongest to ever exist and she could play an important role in the future of the world as she knows it But that doesn t mean that she wants to go along with destiny s plan for her.Caleb lives in Hell No, literally He is a dark angel who is indebted to Lucifer f [...]


  7. A Lucifer vs God story you d never expect, yet is highly satisfying What do witches, werewolves, vampires, Lucifer and God all have in common They are all characters that are woven together beautifully in The Belgrave Legacy While reading I felt drawn into Caleb Fawn s world Yeah, I know You re thinking with a witch involved why can t she just magic her way out of trouble Well, you can t bibbidy bobbidy boo yourself out of this dilemma no matter how hard you try There are unexpected twists aroun [...]

  10. Thanks to the publisher who gave me the chance to review this book via Netgalley Honestly speaking I don t know what to rate this book or how to review it I don t even know where to start Maybe on first impression Right.First impression of this book is it will be a good book It was good in the beginning while I m still learning the characters and the flow of the story It was smooth sailing and good It wasn t until around 20% of the book that I m starting to get confused.The story is way too fast [...]

  12. Boring, riddled with plots holes and skipping major plot and character development, The Belgrave Legacy was by far not one of the best things I have ever read In a world of angels and demons, there is one girl who is going to decided whether good or evil will prevail Fawn is destined to be the most powerful witch ever, and with great power comes great responsibility Wanting to sway Fawn to his side, Satan sends his best, and that best is Caleb What he didn t see coming was that Caleb might fall [...]


  13. I was contacted by the author and offered an e copy in exchange for an honest review The Belgrave Legacy was a story I beta read months back, and I was thrilled to have been sent an e ARC.This was a story of young love and deep connections While the story took place in a world where the devil existed in physical form, and where angels and witches were real, the main character Fawn still lived a fairly mundane lifeUntil she met Caleb.Caleb, on a journey of his own, was your typical bad boy turned [...]


  14. Fawn and Caleb are wonderfully interesting characters with so much potential and even the plot begs to be loved Fawn s predicament is original and demands sympathy She has no idea who she is or what she s capable of She s an unexpecting target with a big heart and discovers she does have a lot fight Caleb, on the other hand, is the perfect bad boy Caught in service to Lucifer, he s got a very dark past He s hot, and he s tough, but with Fawn, he might have met his match.The premise definitely pu [...]

  17. I liked the concept of The Belgrave Legacy and at the start Fawn Belgrave, an extraordinary witch learning to use her powers, held my attention However as the story progressed and the battle between God and Lucifer for her evolved I found myself losing attention in places While Caleb worked as a love interest and dark angel who was trying to change his path, I wasn t completely convinced about the romance and felt like sometimes the story slowed down too much or jumped ahead without really bring [...]
