A YA witch/wizard adventure with a hint of supernatural
on 15 February 2012
A YA witch/wizard paranormal story with an unexpected twist or lapse into the supernatural along the way. I think it will appeal to younger readers also and luckily the writer has kept the content teen clean. I think some of the superfluous details could have been omitted to make it stronger, for example detailed accounts of going from one room to the other or scenes that added nothing to the plot. Other than that it was a pleasant venture into a teenagers world in which Portia is suddenly introduced to the fact she is a witch and the boy she likes is a warlock with a dark past. I didn't think the supernatural element, which becomes apparent at the end of the book, did the storyline any good, but I have read stranger things.
