Spellcaster

Well, although I thought that this premise will be okay but I was just so bored from reading it and that really it could have done it so much better.

Nadia, she was okay at first. Then eventually, it just became impossible to continue reading and I went to skim. It seemed that there was no clear goal as to why she was chasing Elizabeth, nothing personal. But she just felt there, she just loved Mateo. And her family feel like background props when it will have been more interesting if they were more utilitised.

As for her friends, yeah I really don’t care about any of them. At all. The villain was as interesting as a piece of cardboard, and she was a witch who was revived over and over. And really, she has almost no motive. And she never really reveals anything about herself that will make this interesting at all.

And the plot, I really didn’t know what it was meant to be. More about Nadia’s mother, and also Elizabeth. But I feel as though her mother just was there to make her trained, when it will have been better to explore her mother’s past. Which is likely to be more interesting. Rather than having some school queen be a witch, who gets revived over and over, although it is explained. But it makes little sense why it should be in the first book. Or makes little sense why Nadia will be chasing her.

And so, you can see that I really didn’t understand the need of this book. Since I was bored, and terrifically underwhelmed in it. I can’t really bring myself to recommend it at all.
