Welcome to the second day of Shayne!
Today is the review of the prequel of Maggie Shaynes Portal Series: The Legacy Of The Witch and another chance to enter the GIVEAWAY!!!!

"Once upon a time, there lived three witches…."
As a child, Amarrah loved her grandmother's stories of three witches who were members of the king's harem. But they were more than just stories. Amarrah knows she was there with them…and now their legacy, along with an ancient box that once belonged to them, lies in her hands.
Charged with keeping the box safe, Amarrah is heartbroken when it is stolen from her while she moves to America. Years later, she is shocked to see it on TV and is determined to get it back. Tracking the artifact leads her to Sergeant Harrison Brockson, a handsome soldier who stirs memories of a man she knew centuries ago in ancient Babylon. Is Harrison the key to finding the box—or could he be her destiny?

Everybody, say it with me! awwwwwwwwwww
If you're looking for a quick read with some intrigue, danger, passion, a healthy dose of magic and that warm fuzzy feeling that bubbles up in your chest, then this book is for you!
Love through the ages? Yes, please!
Hot soldier boy? YES! please! (Sorry Jeremy)
This delicious little bite gives away the perfect amount of intrigue for the Portal series. It sets you up for the following series while telling its own story at the same time.  It creates a story within the story, and made me do a little happy dance after reading.
I LOVE happy dancing ;)

The characters were loveable, and even tho it was a short story, they still made an impact. I seriously don't know how Maggie manages to do that, its forever elusive *falls over*
 I loved the little bits of 'hehe' moments strewn throughout, like this!
'In the nineties women in the U.S. had become like male lions, the bigger the mane, the more status they had.  And hers was massive.  Or she was from Texas.'

BUT, the remaining anxiousness that is burning within me is: What happened to everyone else?
Well, I guess I'll find out soon enough! On to reading Mark of the Witch I go!
Come back tomorrow for another review and another chance to Win!
