The Council is the governing Coven over the Land of Five, a region entirely inhabited-and split apart-by witches with varying powers. Lilith Lace, a witch thought to be born powerless, happily resides in Ignis, the Coven of Fire, until she suddenly develops telekinesis, an ability only seen in some witches born in Mentis, the Coven of the Mind.

Lilith is an eighteen year old who grew up believing she was unequipped (had no magic), injured as a child by magic causing her to be labeled a cripple. Lilith's inner dialogue makes it sound like she needs all this help because of her injury but it's clear that while she has some limitations she's ambulatory all by herself, so this was weird to read.

As Lilith's class nears the time for their Arcane Ceremony Lilith discovers she has telekentic powers. She doesn't have a lot of control over her powers, and her testing on animals really made me dislike her initially, and it took some time before I began to warm up to her.

She grew up on Ignus and should have pyrokentic powers not telekentic and she's freaked out how her friends, family and coven will react to her power not being the same as her covens.

Lilith's Arcane Ceremony reveals more about her than she expected at the same time a rival Coven wishing to take down the current ruling Coven attacks one of the Council. This event is the start of Lilith's journey down the rabbit hole. It will lead to her finding out more about her world, the fairies and her past.

This first book in the trilogy will leave you with more questions than answers, There's some suspension of belief items for me that kept pulling me out of the story but it does have some interesting characters. This story will leave you hanging so if you don't like that sort of thing you may want to wait until the next installment has been released so you can have it ready to read as soon as you finished this one.

I received a free copy of this book through Booksirens, am voluntarily leaving a review. More of my reviews can be found at https://wyldheartreads.wordpress.com/

I've read a number of books by this author and I have to say I've enjoyed them all. The council was equally as captivating as Krantz's other works. I'd classify it as a young adult read, but I think most ages would love this magical tale.

Features a strong leading female role coming into her own, a whole lot of magic, and witches all shrouded in mystery. I'll be reading the rest of the trilogy! ( )

Read this. For the love of Gods, read this now. Put down whatever paranormal read you have in your grasp and pick this one up. Now.

With echoes of Harry Potter books and Debrah Harkness' All Souls series, it's fantastic. It's amazing. It's heart wrenching. What are you doing reading this review? Get this book and start reading now.

Thank you to the author for the ARC and opportunity to read this novel. ( )

The Council, by Kayla Kratz immediately drew me in with its complex world-building and loveable characters. Lilith's past has always been a bit of a mystery, but on the day of a special ceremony, the pieces begin to fall into place.

Lilith was a wonderfully crafted character. I grew to love her sarcastic and rather blunt way of interacting with others and was grateful for those brief moments where I got to see how vulnerable she truly is.

Clio, best friend to Lilith is a quirky and humorous young flame adept. Their close friendship which bordered on romantic made for a charming change from the full on romances that seem to dominate most modern young adult titles.

The author has crafted an intricate plot that will keep you guessing as Lilith navigates her growing powers and sense of responsibility. I read through with wild abandon, never wanting to set this book down for a moment. There was some beautiful imagery in this novel and I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

Rated 5 stars. ( )

When I started this book, I thought it might turn into Divergent with witches, but boy, was I wrong. It's so much more than that.
Lilith comes from parents with no powers, but she lives in Ignis, one of the sections of the Land of Five, that deals with fire power and hopes to develop those powers. Instead, she has telekinesis, a power which generally resides in inhabitants of Mentis. She also has had a painful leg since childhood, the result of a magical accident with fire. However, the more she probes, the more she finds that the 'accident' wasn't what she's always been told. Her powers are a mystery too.
Lilith is feisty and brusque, but extremely interesting as a protagonist. She's very strong-willed, but not always morally right in her stands. When she is dragged into the Council, the ruling body of the Land of Five, she must develop her powers amid conflicting loyalties to her old friends and new associates.
I'm anxious to find out what happens in the next book. I'd recommend this book to lovers of paranormal, witches, fairies, and magic. ( )
