Review: Wishes (Legacy #2.5) by Molly Cochran

Wishes (Legacy, #2.5)

ebook, 124 pages
Published April 29th 2014 by Simon & Schuster/Paula Wiseman Books 
My Source: I received a copy in exchange for an honest review
In the e-only companion to NYT Bestseller Molly Cochran’s Legacy and Poison, Katy Ainsworth learns that wishes come with consequences.

On Walpurgisnacht, where it is said that fairies abound, Katy meets a troubled fairy who must grant her every wish. But her wish for Peter to love her madly quickly backfires when he follows her around obsessively and weeps over her inattention. So Katy tries a different approach—but a wish for popularity brings about trouble as well. Can her good intentions make up for the misfortune and disappointment that seem to follow every wish? Katy must battle the magic of the Fairy Queen and her henchman to undo the spells—but can she truly repair the damage she’s done?
My Review:
I didn't feel lost, even though I haven't read this series and this book is #2.5. Of course, I'm sure I would know and understand the characters better if I'd read the other books, but I thought it was a great snippet of what the series is about. 
Katy is a witch at a school that was designed for witches, but is now mixed with regular people. The "normal" people don't know about the witches. On a special fairy hunt night, Katy finds the treasure and is granted her wishes, but learns that wishes aren't always what they're cracked up to be. I was thinking about what I would wish for and I think my wishes, as any, would only lead to problems as well. Things are the way they are in our lives for a reason. 

There were a few surprises and turns that I didn't see coming. I thought the ending was just right for this type of story.

Content: a few swear words; some fantasy fighting violence that isn't graphic; kissing, with one scene that gets a little intense because of the wish. Clean.
