I received this book from Enticing Journey in return for a fair and honest review. This book starts with a bang as there is a fire in the cellar. Mia is the one who caused it although she has no idea how but it is her brother, Dino, who is suffering from it. Her mother and aunt take it all in stride and explain that it's about due as they're witches so off to the Glass Castle they go. Now Dino is in a lot of pain, which is excellently explained, and he portrays the pained, grumpy, disgruntled teenager to perfection. He does make friends though and is very good friends with Blue aka Buttons (who is simply brilliant!) Mia makes friends with a girl her own age called Kizzy who is a seer. Mia doesn't know what she is and almost feels jealousy of Dino although she knows how much he is hurting. So put these two together with a group of other witches, throw in the danger of the unknown and you have a fantastic story that will draw you in and keep you turning the pages WAY past your bedtime! I loved the relationship between Mia and Dino - it was so typically familial. Deep love and yet there is still irritation, jealousy, envy and even hatred, they're all there. A short mention of Colt - he is the love interest of Mia and of course, he has to be a hunter. I loved Colt! He is such a brilliantly written character - a perfect mix of being a bad-ass, so arrogant it makes your teeth itch but then a hint of vulnerability that makes you want to hug him. The plot line is well paced and the story and backstory is very well written. Nothing feels rushed about this book, everything seems to develop at the perfect time. Mia is only 16 and as such, some of her reactions had me shaking my head but it wasn't long before Colt came along and sorted things out. Really enjoyed this and would recommend without any doubts. Looking forward to book 2.

Gabriella Lepore's book The Witches of the Glass Castle is a heart warming story of powerful witches, friends, family and finding true love.  The story was well written and the characters effectively developed.  I was ensnared by the story line immediately and captured by the delightfully crafted characters. Mia and her brother Dino have just come into their powers as witches.  Needing a place to further learn about themselves and the gifts that have been bestowed upon them, the siblings find themselves at the Glass Castle.  However, there is an unforeseen power that wants Mia's brother, Dino. Colt is a Hunter.  A sentry of sorts for the Glass Castle.  With great powers of his own, he was born and bred to hunt and kill all sorts of things witches included.  Although, never is his wildest dreams did he think that he would learn to be human, really human in a way that he could love.  He was born to be cold and vicious, but the day that Mia walked into the Glass Castle everything changed for him. I loved this story.  It brought about wonderful feelings of love and family.  The feelings of knowing that how you are born is not a choice, but the friends that you trust is a choice that you can make.  A story of coming of age, finding oneself, and living life to the fullest contain the concrete theme throughout this book.  I recommend this book for sure.  I can't wait to read more about this story!  Beautifully done, Gabriella!  Hero -  4.0 stars Heroine - 4.0 stars Steam Level: 3.0 stars Plot: 4.0 stars Cliffhanger: N0 Would I recommend this book: Yes!  If you want a story to uplift your soul, then read this book!  You won't be disappointed! Would I read other books by this author: Yes! Gabriella has a gift of writing.  I look forward to reading more from this author. ***Received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review***
