Blog Tour: Desecration: The Wizard Queen at Sixteen by Hadley Holt


In a hidden world of wizards where only men hold the power of magic, one girl arises with the power to change everything, if she isn’t killed first…
Adriana Victoriana Evangelista (Addie), daughter to the High Chancellor of the Wizard’s Council, has always been the perfect wizard girl. She never questions why men possess magical powers and women have no power at all, magical or otherwise. Male wizards blend into the modern human world, leading huge
corporations while wizard women are sequestered away.  
On her sixteenth birthday, Addie discovers she possesses magic. Under wizard law, she is a desecration. An ancient prophecy surrounds the emergence of a girl magic-wielder, the wizard queen, who is destined to bring about the downfall of the wizard-kin.
Addie has long had a forbidden crush on a human boy who lives in the wizard stronghold, Rory Devlin. As she delves deeper into the dangerous mysteries surrounding her own destiny, she suspects Rory might be more than just human.

Addie’s fate sends her straight into the path of a powerful and evil sorcerer, but the worst danger of all may come from right inside her own home.

About the Author:
Hadley Holt, author of paranormal, and fantasy YA (Young Adult) has always loved to write. She also nurtures an incurable fascination with all things supernatural and fantastical. From a young age, she imagined stories about dragons, wizards, witches, ghosts, shape-shifters, vampires, and other magical creatures. As
life often does, it blessed Hadley with family - a hunky husband and amazing children, and with family came a rewarding career. Hadley spent many years in the not-so-magical world of finance and mortgage banking, but the stories were always there in the back of her mind, demanding to be set free. 
Thanks to the housing market crash, Hadley finally realized her dreams. She now breathes life into her magical tales of reluctant young heroes finding their inner power to stand up against terrible creatures and even more terrible odds.

Meagan's Review:

I absolutely loved this book!!! And now I've also become a huge fan of Hadley's. This book pulled me in from the first page and I couldn't put it down. I am a huge sucker for love and romance, but I LOVE fantasy. Wizards and magical worlds and that is what Hadley created in this book. You can't help but fall in love with it. 

Our story starts us out with our main character Addie. She's turning 16 and everything in her world is going to change drastically. In the world that Addie lives in the men hold the magic powers and the women don't. Putting it simply. This society is also a men do whatever an the women do as they are told. They are to be seen and not heard. I'd have trouble fitting into this society....magical powers or not. However, when Addie does turn 16 she discovers she does posses magical powers. And of course there's a prophecy that for tells things about Addie and a girl possessing magical powers. It tells of a wizard Queen and what she must and will do. However, during this time Addie tries to hide her powers; especially from her family. However, when family sucks you have AWESOME amazing friends and that's what Addie has. Between Izzy and Hugo I'm not sure who I loved more. 

Then we come to Rory. *sigh* Rory is extremely hawt!!  Rory is the so called human that lives in the wizard world. Rory and Addie have an amazing attraction to each other and of course it's forbidden so it pushes you to want them together even more. However, you begin to question if Rory is truly human and then it makes you wonder what he could possibly be. Beyond this you keep guessing until the very end what is going to happen. Every time I thought I was pretty sure Hadley went nope and changed directions and kept me on my toes. That right there is one of the best compliments I can give to an author. To have a story that isn't predictable and keeps the reader guessing because those stories make the best stories for years to come. I can't wait to read more of Hadley's work and I highly recommend this book.
