Waiting on Wednesday
"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Spellcaster by Claudia Gray. Here's the synopsis:
"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.
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."
I am a fan of Claudia's and I think this book sounds great. I'll read anything to do with witchcraft and curses and did I mention that I loved the Secret Circle? The TV show that is, I hated the books (sorry). I've had this book on my wishlist since I first heard Claudia talking about it and I'm looking forward to reading it.
Spellcaster is published in March, 2013 in the US with no news on a UK release as of yet.
