Review of Shattered into Beautiful by Mel Ballew

Bide the Wiccan Law ye must

In perfect love and perfect trust

Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill: An’ ye harm none, do what ye will

What ye send forth comes back to thee

So ever mind the law of three

Follow this with mind and heart

Merry ye meet

Merry ye part



A Surviving Soul Novel
Her Magick is destined but true love forbidden.

After beautiful Sylver Kyllienne Brady meets death at the hands of her boyfriend, Roland Parks, she transcends into Summerland. There, she reunites with her mother and finds her soul mate, Zander. Pulled back to the earthly plane, she must embark on a journey of discovery. She uncovers a truth. She is the descendent of a long lineage of powerful Witches. She must learn to control her power, protect the family’s Amulet and Book of Shadows. Sylver has no idea what awaits her. And, this is only part of her discovery.

Lives unravel as secrets are discovered and mysteries unfold.

Everything changes when she meets Zander Emmett –a vampire. Zander is gorgeous, exotic, sexy and unbelievably wealthy. He is also the one person a witch, such as Sylver, must avoid. Their love is forbidden but their souls draw them together like a magnet. Their bodies ignite, passion soars and their souls are left discovering, not only each other, but their destiny. His life holds secrets and enticing mysteries of his own that propel the parallels of their worlds to climaxing heights.

Will their colliding worlds separate them? Will Sylver embrace her destiny? Will realizing what is expected of her and falling soul-fully in love with Zander – the vampire she is forbidden to love just leave her breathless?

Or, will she forever be Shattered Into Beautiful?

Let’s start by talking about the oh so gorgeous cover! It is mystical, erotic, and intriguing. Seeing a triquetra always sparks my interest as I am of Wiccan faith, but this book will be loved by everyone!


I enjoyed this book so much! So much, in fact, that enjoyed is not a strong enough word. The characters were relate-able  it was well-written, the story was fantastic, and it was a perfect combination of romance and humor. While a few parts felt rushed, I still loved the whole thing! I can not wait for the sequel! Hopefully, one day I will be able to have an autographed paperback copy in my collection to cherish.
