You will not want to put this book down...
The book is as the title says, a book about a schools namely Norma Jean's school of Witchery. It helps young witches expand their knowledge of the craft and the history surrounding it as well as martial arts. I want to go to this school.
Rose has been able to write as a teenager as the main character and it is nice to have a rather mature and not petulant teenager. Well done.
I was automatically drawn in from page one and the story keeps you spellbound (ha see what I did there).
Jewel possesses some rare magical talent and decides that she must keep some of it to herself whereas her adopted parents suggested keeping other parts quiet for now. Jewel on starting at the school is drawn in to an attempted assassination plot on her new friend and she for one wants to helps foil any further attempt. She is already behind as she started the school year late due to the death of her parents. Jewel also finds romance in the shape of Elgon.
Jewel has been given a magical fae necklace with magical charms from her godmother the winter queen. These charms go a long way to helping keep her safe and Jewel somehow manages to dream new charms into existence.
Such an exciting read :-))
The necklace with charms is a gift from her god mother, which I had no doubts would be a piece of equipment that would do some real good through the novel, and it did.
What I expected and got were two different things, Jewell feels a bit lost at the school at first, but she soon meets some other interesting students and fast makes some friends, Wyatt and Riley. However she's still very guarded over her abilities and that comes off as a little weird at first, but then reasons to the why do unfold in a really natural way, we learn more and more about her and the whys. Being late to the school because of her parents, still pretty much a grieving young woman, but not a snotty or bratty teen like I've read in most other books. Jewell is literally a gem amongst other kids, she was deep and giving.
Some of her classes are interesting, especially the self defence. Both written extremely well and with a light sense of humour, you can seriously get into these characters just from how well they're developed. All of them are interesting and whole. Really enjoyed the banter and the fight, even if it got her in trouble.
Despite the trouble and not wanting to out her abilities she does a pretty good job of letting everything slip. Each chapter is a great follow on, leading Jewell on a fab adventure. I won't post anymore spoilers, but to say it's a wild ride and a book you just won't want to put down.
I am very interested in seeing what happens with Jewell and her friends in the next book. You've got a fan. Thank you very much.Read more ›
I've been wanting to read this for ages, and with it being the Indie Book Club's book of the month. I mean, that cover is pretty fantastic; plus it's about witches.
I really enjoyed this. It follows Jewel as she gets used to life at a new school. After spending her time with her foster family (who all happen to be awesome and powerful), Jewel she gets to discover her strengths and weaknesses in comparison to the rest of the witch high school community.
Jewel was a fun main character. She is very self-sufficient and capable no matter what is going on; but she is also friendly and loyal to those around her. I found it refreshing that she is popular in her new school, that she attends and brings these groups of people together that hadn't been that close before, and they all get on fantastically. She's a magnet for those around her, regardless of what clique they should be in.
Jewel is amazing at martial arts and doesn't waste her time boasting or being overly-humble. She gets on with her training and enjoys learning everything she can.
Her friends are all interesting, and a love interest in Elgon, who is supposed to be a Chris Hemsworth look-a-like (I approve).
If I'm being picky, I sometimes felt like the friends and background characters were all interminable, and it was hard to recall which name belonged to which person.
The plot rolls out, with the first half establishing the school and dynamics in a fun way.Read more ›
