When Nadia’s family moves to Captive’s Sound, she instantly realizes there’s more to it than meets the eye. Descended from witches, Nadia senses a dark and powerful magic at work in her new town. Mateo has lived in Captive’s Sound his entire life, trying to dodge the local legend that his family is cursed - and that curse will cause him to believe he’s seeing the future … until it drives him mad. When the strange dreams Mateo has been having of rescuing a beautiful girl—Nadia—from a car accident come true, he knows he’s doomed.As many of you might know, I'm a big fan of witch books, and I feel like if there is one character we don't see enough in YA paranormal literature are witches. So, naturally, whenever I hear about a witch book, especially one hailing from as big a name as Claudia Gray, I get rather excited.
Despite the forces pulling them apart, Nadia and Mateo must work together to break the chains of his family’s terrible curse, and to prevent a disaster that threatens the lives of everyone around them. Shimmering with magic and mystery, New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray’s new novel is sure to draw fans of the Hex Hall and Caster Chronicles series, and fans of the hit CW TV show The Secret Circle.
Though I am yet to read Gray's Evernight series, I simply adored her werewolves on the Titanic novel, Fateful, which was probably in my top five favorite reads of 2011. (2011, ha! Who remembers that year?), and I'm especially interested to hear her take on this story. Oh, and not that it's a big deal, but that cover is simply divine!
