Overview

Seventeen-year-old Baltimore Land just wants to be normal, but magic has other plans.

I don't consider myself a witch, that's my parents' thing. I've never really believed in magic either. Sure, I tried it a few times. Fell for the whole "magic happens" thing. But it didn't happen to me. No amount of rhyming stopped my parents from moving me halfway across the country. Not one spell stopped me from being labeled the town freak.

And worst of all, no matter how many times I begged the Universe to bring my twin back, I was ignored. Until now.

He's back all right. And in a magical bind of his own. Not the magic-won't-work-for-me kind either. In fact, it's working a little too well. Too dark. Too deep.

It turns out our entire family's magical roots run just as deep and my brother didn't end up where he is by accident. So I'm going to help him. But magic isn't really on my side. Nope. Once I finally get the craft under control, I'm expected to abandon the one person in the world who's closest to me, just to save myself.

I really enjoyed this story.  I haven’t read a lot of witch / magic stories, and I found this one really held my interest the whole way through. The story is told from the point of view of Baltimore.  She comes to discover some unsettling things about her family and her own abilities with magic.  Her brother has also discovered magic, and he seems to have fallen in with the wrong crowd.  Baltimore sets out to learn to use her magic skills in an effort to save her brother from Joslin’s clutches.  She is a bit impetuous, repetitively attempting spells with little to no practice only to end up with disastrous results that she needs rescuing from.   I found this aspect of her character a bit frustrating, but I could understand her concern for her brother’s safety. Baltimore is staying with her Grandfather during all of this.  She learns of his connection with magic, and about how her Grandmother died.  Some old friends are also caught up in these events.  One is Ramon, a young man who apparently has visions, and Nate who was present at the séance, but was placed there for her protection.  There’s a hint of romance developing between Baltimore and Nate, but it’s only just beginning by the end of the book and I look forward to seeing how that evolves.   The plot is full of action, danger, and hidden secrets that are revealed to our main character.  I thoroughly enjoyed the writing style and  this world of magic the author has created.  Although most of the plot threads are tied up at the end of this installment, the author has left just enough of an opening for the story to continue in book two.
