Spectral - Shannon Duffy Jewel and her family have been moving from place to place all her life. In each destination required a fresh start complete with change of names. All she knows is what her parents have told her: escaping the mob. One night she overhears a conversation which changes how she perceives things, and finally finds out who she is. A Spectral: Like the ultimate witch. She also gets to meet a boy, Roman, who says he is her guardian. There is more than meets the eye where Roman and his coven in Italy are concerned. Thing is, although getting involved with her is forbidden, he's determined to protect her from anything and anyone who poses a threat. He does a very good job, and even suprised me a couple of times. Definitely a guardian worth having around. :)

Overall Spectral was a great read. To see Jewel discover who she is, who she can trust, how she eventually accepts who she is. The book takes you from Florida to Russia and eventually Italy.(to one of my favourite seasons. The Carnival, which is something worth seeing in Venice)
There is also a love triangle: Chase, Roman and Jewel. It was good to see her follow her heart on that one :)
