Casted – Book Review

Casted – Book Review

The world is falling apart, never being able to stay in one spot for too long, or risk getting caught by a mysterious group of enemies that want to see you dead. Living in a state of constant fear, never knowing who is going to be around the corner when you walk down the street, never knowing which day is your last is terrifying enough without having any living family members or even knowing who you are anymore. It’s enough to drive someone crazy, and that’s not even including the magical powers that haven’t reared their heads yet.

Powers? Yes, powers.

Jade was running from someone. She didn’t really know who, and nobody could tell her who either because her family was dead. At least, she figured they were dead since she never had them in her life for as long as she could remember. She wasn’t alone forever though, because she was saved from a life of loneliness by two women who would become her best friends, Rainy and Jessa. For months, it seems like things are going to be okay, that whoever is trying to find Jade won’t be looking for her anymore. But one day their peace is shattered, and someone ends up finding Jade, someone who opens the door to a whole new kind of drama.

Jade ends up finding out that she has magical prowess, and it becomes even stronger when she ends up reading for a mysterious book with a woman in the book, literally. It’s like she is telling Jade what to do, which spells to perform, all that jazz. But can Jade really handle everything that this mystery woman is telling her to do, and is everything that this woman shouts in her head “good”, or does this woman have her own agenda against the Triad?

This book was such an amazing story to read. It takes a while for me to find good books about witches and magic, and this one definitely did not disappoint me. I really loved Jade and just her attitude and character. Of course, there were times when she would freak out like any normal person would, and that would of course be extremely frustrating to read. Despite her freak outs, and despite her doubting her abilities sometimes to the point where I wanted to shake her and tell her to get over it, she was an amazing character to relate to, and I couldn’t help but root for her. I still have to read the second book, but I know that it won’t disappoint me.

Rated: 5/5 Stars
