Spellcaster – Claudia Gray

Spellcaster (Spellcaster, #1) Spellcaster by Claudia Gray.  Published March 5, 2013 by Harper Teen. CDN $9.99 Kindle edition.

When Nadia’s family moves to Captive’s Sound, she instantly realizes there’s more to it than meets the eye. Descended from witches, Nadia senses a dark and powerful magic at work in her new town. Mateo has lived in Captive’s Sound his entire life, trying to dodge the local legend that his family is cursed – and that curse will cause him to believe he’s seeing the future … until it drives him mad. When the strange dreams Mateo has been having of rescuing a beautiful girl—Nadia—from a car accident come true, he knows he’s doomed.

Despite the forces pulling them apart, Nadia and Mateo must work together to break the chains of his family’s terrible curse, and to prevent a disaster that threatens the lives of everyone around them. Shimmering with magic and mystery, New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray’s new novel is sure to draw fans of the Hex Hall and Caster Chronicles series, and fans of the hit CW TV show The Secret Circle.(Goodreads excerpt)

Wow, where do I start? I loved loved loved this book.  I’m a big fan of anything magical or paranormal or different.  This was all three.  Big fan of Claudia Gray.  This book was intriguing and dark and sinister…all things I love in a good magical read.

The story is told from third person omniscience POV.  This is my only negative comment in this review.  I’m not a fan of this type of view.  It makes it a little harder to relate to the important characters when you flip around all the time.  I don’t want to know what the crow in the sky is seeing or feeling.

Back to the good stuff.  Despite the Omniscience I did like knowing what Nadia and Mateo are feeling, thinking etc.  I loved the interaction between these two.  It was amazing to see how they deal with each other, given the circumstances they find themselves in.  I don’t want to give anything away, but suffice it to say they have a lot of obstacles to overcome and the interaction and growth is fun to watch.

I love the originality of the story.  The magic was amazing.  I love how everything is explained and made to feel real and possible.  Did I say how big of a fan of magic I am?  Yes a little fan girl going on here.  Claudia Gray is an amazing writer and she didn’t disappoint with this book either.  I can’t wait to read the next book.

5 awesome stars for me!

Teaser Tuesday (APRIL 1)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:

Verlaine

Who was now staring at Nadia in a way that made it absolutely clear that, even though she might not have known what just happened, she knew exactly who was responsible.

She’d been caught doing witchcraft.
