"The one beneath is coming," Elizabeth whispered.Spellcaster written by Claudia Gray is well written and had a great story line, the characters were great - I loved Verlain - it was thrilling and full of drama. There were heart melting moments, moments that will make you cry and moments that will make you laugh out loud. I must admit I was a bit disappointed with this book, I don't know if it was because the amount of hype that was built up for it or the fact that it was made out to be the next best seller by some websites though it turned out to be a very ordinary novel. However I hope to see if the next installment is better.® When Nadia is forced to move to a different town she finds out that there is more to Captive's Sound then meets the eye there is a dark magic unlike any she's ever seen before all through the town. And when she finds out the boy she loves is cursed she will have to fight to save the town and him.
The curse is real.
Summary from book jacket:
When Nadia's family moves to Captive's Sound, she immediately realizes there's more to the place than meets the eye. Descended from witches, Nadia can sense that a spell has been cast over the tiny Rhode Island town - a sickness infecting everyone and everything in it. The magic at work is darker and more powerful than anything she's come across, and the person it has affected most is Mateo - her rescuer, friend, and the guy she yearns to get closer to, even though he pushes her away.
Mateo's family has a tormented past and it soon becomes evident that Mateo is the next member of his family to be cursed, particularly when the strange dreams Mateo has been having of rescuing a beautiful girl from a car accident actually come true.
Despite the forces pulling them apart, Nadia and Mateo must work together to break his terrible family curse and prevent a coming disaster that threatens the entire town, including Nadia's family, her newfound friends, and her own life.
