Book Review! Gypsy Heart by Juliana Haygert

Gypsy Heart (Gypsy Heart, #1) by Juliana Haygert
Genre: New Adult Fiction (Paranormal/Fantasy Romance)
Date Published: March 12, 2018
Publisher: Carter & Bradley Publishing

She's no ordinary gypsy ...

If twenty year old Mirella could just pretend she wasn’t a gypsy for one second, maybe her life wouldn’t suck. But turning off her enhanced sixth sense isn’t something she can do. 

When she’s attacked by mysterious masked men, questions and fear rise. And the answers probably lie with Mirella’s mother, the same woman who she hasn’t spoken with in over a year. Their reencounter is unpleasant, as is learning the truth that Mirella is more than just a gypsy.

She’s a Tzigane, a line of very powerful gypsies, and because she doesn’t live in a secured enclave, she’s an easy target for the Alchemists—a group obsessed with Tzigane’s magic. 

Her mother and two enemy enclaves fight to teach her how to control her magic, when all Mirella wants is to go to college and go out with the guy she’s crushing on—while ignoring the trail of bodies amassing around her.

But living free brings danger to her friends’ lives, and Mirella will have to choose between continuing to pretend to be normal or letting her inner power take over to engage in a century old battle where the price might be her own life.

**First published with Creatures boxed set on Aug 15th 2017.**

Gypsy Heart is the first book in the Gypsy Heart series by Juliana Haygert. It was first published with the Creatures Boxed Set. 

I wasn't sure what to expect with this book, because aside from the stereotypes of fortune telling and thievery, I know very little about Gypsies. So, the premise intrigued me from the start. I'm not sure if the Tzigane and all the abilities and magic surrounding them in this story come from actual Gypsy lore, but it sure was interesting. Mirella has been kept in the dark about most of her heritage her whole life. Her mom is to blame for that, and boy do I want to slap her mom around. I mean come on! It's beyond time to start talking! Mirella has some attitude. Sure, she made some bad decisions, but she didn't let anyone push her around either. I enjoyed both of the enclaves, and their members. If I had to choose which one to join, it'd be tough. There are pluses and minuses to both. Just like everything in life, I suppose. I'd love to see them united. As for the guys... I have to say I like Artan quite a bit, but Theron isn't too far behind. I don't know if this is going to be a love triangle of some kind, but I like all involved so far. Gypsy Heart was very fast paced from the Alchemist to the romance and everything in between. I found myself getting caught up in Mirella's world quite easily, and it was very hard to leave it when the book ended.
