Review ~ Cauldron Bubble by Wendy Knight

“You’ve just always been the powerful one. I’m the smart aleck.” 
“We’re the same. I’m night, you’re day. You have to have both to have life.” 
“You can hide in the shadows.” 
“And you can shine like the sun. This prophesy is about both of us.” 

Destiny doesn't think she's anything special. The daughter of an outcast witch. Her twin, Fate, is her best friend, so that's awesome. They're experts in love potions and selling them to crazy high school kids.

So they can buy more shoes.

But that all changes when their school is attacked by warlocks—warlocks who want her power for their own. The attack launches her onto the path the stars have chosen for Destiny, Fate, and their long-lost father.

Oh, and Quin.

Quin, who's the son of a witch, only tolerating Destiny's presence because she can save his mother. Except along the way, that all changes, and he realizes Destiny is everything he never knew he wanted. The only problem is she thinks if love can be made from a potion, it can't be a real thing.
If they survive this, he's going to prove her wrong.

Jewelz Review~

"... little pink bubbles hummed to the surface, rose and danced across the ceiling. One popped..."

Cauldron Bubble tells the story of twin witches, Fate and Destiny. The girls are potion witches (as opposed to warrior witches) who live with their mother away from the rest of the coven. The twins delight in creating a variety of potions, including a love potion that has managed to get them expelled from school on three separate occasions.

Quinn is the son of a warrior witch - he has no powers of his own, since only women can be witches. When Destiny and Fate arrive at his school he can't help that Destiny turns his head. She's beautiful and brilliant. No one was better than him at Chemistry... well, until Destiny arrived. The silent competition and animosity between the two is almost palpable. Until the warlocks attack the school leaving Quinn's mother near death and Destiny severely injured.

The result is the twins, Quinn, and a few other companions embark on an epic adventure to save the world from the evil warlocks. Battles are fought, a "destiny" is followed, families are reunited, and love conquers all.

Cauldron Bubble was a true delight.

FYI ~ clean read with mild language and violence

About the author~
Wendy Knight was born and raised in Utah by a wonderful family who spoiled her rotten because she was the baby. Now she spends her time driving her husband crazy with her many eccentricities (no water after five, terror when faced with a live phone call, etcetera, etcetera). She also enjoys chasing her three adorable kids, playing tennis, watching football, reading, and hiking. Camping is also big: her family is slowly working toward a goal of seeing all the National Parks in the U.S.

You can usually find her with at least one Pepsi nearby, wearing ridiculously high heel for whatever the occasion may be. And if everything works out just right, she will also be writing.
