Seventeen-year-old Maggie Ellmes is dogged by a case of chronic bad luck. She figures that’s just her lot in life—that is, until the psychic at Blackheath’s annual carnival reveals that Maggie’s problems are caused by more than just ordinary misfortune; she’s actually been cursed.

Desperate to shake the hex, Maggie has no choice but to seek out the help of Joel Tomlins, a rebellious classmate who’s descended from Blackheath’s most powerful line of witches. After breaking all of his coven’s conventions to help her, Joel discovers that the curse isn’t as bad as Maggie fears. In fact, it’s much, much worse.

 My Review

 4/5 Roses

Psychics, magic and hexes - oh my!

I don't tend to read a lot of books about magic and witches - it's difficult for me to stay entertained with the general plotlines. Every once in a while though, I'll stumble across one that looks interesting, and I'll give it a shot. Luckily for me, I didn't waste my time with Blackheath.

Maggie is a character I really identified with, and I loved her personality. I found her spicy and sassy, with just enough sugar to balance her out. Taking on the challenges she faced and the dark luck she'd found, showed her strength and tenacity.

The Blackheaths all kind of freaked me out, in the way I think they were supposed to. The whole town seemed completely realistic, and the gossip and intrigue surrounding the mysterious family was interesting. Joel fit right into the story, giving it the perfect rebel in the dark.

I enjoyed the story over all, and would recommend it to others. I'm glad to have had the opportunity to experience this story, and thank the author and Xpresso Book Tours for the chance to read it.

*I received an eCopy of this book, from the author via Xpresso Book Tours, to read in exchange for an honest review.
