From the opening line, “The spell wouldn’t stay on the shelf.”, I was completely hooked. The elements of magic come alive in this brilliant book. It is completely new and different from other books with a magical element. Rayne is an apprentice spell breather, being taught by her mother. Unfortunately, spells do not come easily to Rayne and sometimes disaster strikes.
Rayne finds herself alone and in trouble after spells start going wrong. She must find her mother but she will need to leave the safety of her world. She takes her friend Tom with her but the road is paved with danger. There is much they need to learn and they must work together. This unfamiliar world will test their strength, friendship and courage.
I found myself unable to leave Rayne and Tom, so read late into the night. There is so much brilliance in this book, full of surprises, magic and love.
There is also enough at the end to leave you wanting more.
What more could you want?
