"Horrid" by L.C. Ireland

Delta Delaroe and her 6 sisters have been cursed by a woman known as the Horrid Witch. It seems that their brother Elias has stolen something from the witch and she wants it returned. If it is not, each night one of the girls shall disappear when the moonlight touches their skin at the stroke of midnight. No hint is given as to what was stolen from the witch, and after the 7th night all of the girls will have disappeared.

With seemingly no other options, and no idea what it was that her brother had stolen, Delta makes a deal with the Horrid Witch in an attempt to save herself and her remaining sisters. She trades her soul in exchange for a service to the witch and is given an enchanted dagger that will kill anyone it so much as scratches. If she succeeds in killing the person that she has been sent to use it on within 3 days, Delta and her remaining sisters will live. If not, the countdown continues until either the item stolen has been returned or all 7 sisters have ceased to exist.

I enjoyed reading this Young Adult Fantasy tale. It was very well written and well edited. I did manage to guess the ending, though that might have more to do with it being intended primarily for a younger audience, though just as enjoyable to someone my age as to the young adults for whom it was written. I would gladly recommend this book to anyone and am very much looking forward to reading the rest of the series once they have been released.
