Overview

When Melantha Caldwell turns sixteen on Valentine's Day she will come into her spell-turner powers. It should be the happy event she'd looked forward to her whole life, but at the moment she could care less. A sorcerer has killed her mother and magic doesn't seem to be working for her anyway, so Mel would rather have nothing to do with magic ever again. She just wants to be a normal fifteen year old, living a normal life in Ottawa, doing normal things like going to high school, and having a boyfriend. But a social life is not something Mel's Gran will let her have.

So when an elf from the Magic Council arrives to ask Mel to help him catch her mother's killer, Mel tells him she's not interested. But in the asking, the elf reveals that Mel attends the same school as the son of the killer. This has her intrigued because the boy happens to be the wimpiest kid in school. When the elf offers to take away Mel's overbearing Gran so she can get the job done, Mel agrees. It's finally her chance to live a normal life, and all she has to do is get inside the sorcerer's home. If only it were that simple . . .

The elf leaves Mel with a guardian-- the most annoying creature on the planet: a talking cricket. The boy Mel hopes to make her boyfriend suddenly takes on a super jealous streak. And if she doesn't get the job done, a curse will be upon her. Literally. What's more if Mel doesn't catch the sorcerer, he will succeed in his plan to remove magic from all spell-turners, and as much as she hates magic, Mel knows she can't let the sorcerer succeed or she'll lose everyone she cares about.

    Solid writing and strong world building. Pacing was a little slow towards the second half of book. Overall, I recommend this book and look forward to more from this writer.
