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

“My mind absorbed everything in the spell book I clutched tightly to me. Pages ruffled inside of my head, urging me to remember things and then to forget them. Voices chanted with tempo rising at the breaking points of pain until the book vanished and words to an ancient spell scribed across my arms. Each stroke brought blood to the surface, imprinting words I could not read; words that would forever change who I was.”

Jade had spent the majority of her life running from the Triad. A powerful group, who would stop at nothing to obtain Jade and the missing spell book for leader, Lorenzo’s, nefarious plans. And now that she has absorbed the highly coveted magic contained inside the missing book, there is nowhere left for her to hide.

With the help of her friends, Jade steps out from the shadows and learns how to fight back. But no one is prepared for Elinor-the woman bound inside of the book that’s trapped in Jade’s mind. Now she not only needs to protect herself from the Triad, but from what’s hiding inside her mind as well. 

Jade never expected the answer to it all would revolve around love.

Edge is dark, mysterious, and a sworn member of the Triad. He also hides a secret past that threatens the thin line he walks between good and evil. Lives are at stake when Jade and Edge’s two worlds collide. Can Jade learn to trust him when he says he is her pre-ordained and vows to do everything he can to protect her? But more importantly, can she trust herself and the woman in her mind?
