BOOK REVIEW: "Persecution (Dyphillum #1)" by Elizabeth Montgomery

They were exiled from their clan. Made to leave the only home they ever knew. They knew the curse would kill them if they didn’t leave. Isaac erased her memories to give her a better life. 
Only Cecily can defeat the hunters. Isaac swore his heart to protect her. Julian swore his life to protect her. But in the end will it be Isaac and Julian that needs saving?

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Vampire-witch hybrids. I've read books about those, but .ever quite like Persecution.
The title is pretty much the plot: Cecily has to escape persecution from...what? That's what I want to mention first in this review. You think you know who's hunting her, but there's a pretty big twist that even I didn't see coming! Mrs. Montgomery has a vivid imagination and great skill.
The characters are each fun. Oddly enough, I found Cecily, the lead, to be the most flat out of all of them. Issac is protective and kind, and will probably be your next book boyfriend. Isobel is not around as much, but even she's got a lot of spunk. there is a character I want to see more of! He is by far my favorite with his snarky attitude.
The plot was extremely fast-paced, and I think I read this in an hour. It kept you reading page after page, never slowing down.
My only complaint would be a slight lack of detail. The emotional moments go by too quickly and I'd like to have had more of the background detailed when Isaac explains it to Cecily. It's so interesting I don't think I could get enough of the fantastical elements.

4/5--can't wait to start the next book!

Purchase Persecution via Amazon!
