Book Blurb

The Spellspinners of Melas County is a fantasy YA romance series about a witch, a warlock, and their fight for their forbidden but prophesied love.

Once soulmates, the witch and warlock covens of the California coast have been estranged for a century. Raised to hate each other, their teenagers meet in the Solstice Stones, a magical battleground where they draw energy from each other to maintain their balance. 16 year olds Logan and Lily have spent years training for their first Stones…only to discover just days before that the enemy may not be what either of them had thought. 

In Witch’s Brew, Lily is torn between her feelings for Logan and her coven’s need to know who—or what—he is. The young lovers race against time, their distrust for each other, and the powerful influence of their elders to unravel the mystery of their pasts before their future is destroyed. 

This is an Active Fiction title

My Thoughts

WHATTTTT!! WHYYYY?? would you end it like that?!

I like reading books with witches but I don't really go looking for them. So glad I stumbled upon this one. Really liked the magic aspect, the conflict between the warlocks and the witched, their history and their politics. I really liked how *easy* the magic actually was, none that weird crap about how magic is so awesome, but then you use it and poof you are done, like a one-time magical wonder. It kind of reminded me of the T.V show Sabrina in respects to the use and ease of magic.

Loved all the characters, even the evil-witch Caemillia (cause I just that ending had written her all over it) and the villan Jacob who is seriously creepy and disgusting. Then there is the bubbly Daisy, and the frenemy Orchid, because honestly she has yet to inspire actual trust. Speaking of which, also don't trust cotton candy haired Jonah, there is just something about him that isn't right. I loved the interactions between Lily and Daisy, and Lily and Logan, super-hot Logan *sigh*. I definitely approve of how the romance is developing, it's obvious they like each other but they are still holding back, like they should be.

What I wasn't so keen about was the choosing how the story went. It really upset me, mostly cause I felt like I was going to miss something at the time and it felt like a really big decision about how the story would go and I really just don't like to choose D:

But all in all, anyone who even remotely likes stories about witches, this is a definite must!
