Book Review: Spellcaster (#1)

Spellcaster (Spellcaster, #1)Spellcaster by Claudia Gray
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I picked this book, I didn't realize that most of the characters would be in high school. I wasn't sure if I could identify with that age group, but I kept on listening because I was curious how the author presented magick.

She presented it well, and differently. The spells weren't theatrical, but powerful in a subtle, frightening way. I won't spoil things here, but the ingredients and the way Nadia, the main character, assembled them was unique.

And I shouldn't have worried about the age group; it dealt with themes we deal with at many different stages in life: not fitting it, being abandoned, and knowing you have to do something very difficult to save others.

I'd definitely recommend it for young adults, and suggest that this isn't the only age group that would appreciate it.
