From Goodreads.

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 love Claudia Gray’s books! I read her Evernight series before I started blogging and I still suggest them to readers today! Lucas and Balthazar will always have a soft spot in my heart. But I have to say move aside boys because there’s a new Claudia Gray character and he’s moving in! His name is Mateo and he’s a beautiful (I mean super-hot), tortured, cursed, soul. And he is so sweet and loving he takes my breath away!

Ok enough about Mateo let’s talk about this story! I was so thrilled when I heard that Claudia was going to write a witch story! I mean she has already taken on vampires, wraiths, and werewolves on the Titanic and they all rocked so I knew this was going to be amazeballs too! And yep peeps IT SO WAS!!!!!

Claudia has written another amazing story with vibrant characters in a beautiful setting with a backstory that just screams “I need a novella!” and her MC Nadia is as kick ass as her other heroines. She’s so brave that she’d rather be hurt herself than others around her and I admire that about her! I also fell in love with Verlaine (yep girl crush big time) the reluctant BFF her parts in the story had me cracking up and smiling and I can’t wait to find out more about her history in book 2! Oh speaking of I can’t wait for book 2 lol!

Ok so to leave with a parting passage I normally go with the swoon but since I loved Verlaine so much I just had to share this one!

“It’s not going to happen for us,” Nadia said, trying to push aside the swell of anger within her. “So forget it. Never mind. Don’t be freaked.”

Verlaine had evidently gone from beging excited at the possibility to relieved that it was unlikely. “Ok, I get it, you were just—giving me the ‘in case of emergency’ speech. Like on a plane. They always tell you where the life jackets are, and show you how to calmly put on the oxygen masks—like if those masks fell out of the plane ceiling you wouldn’t all be screaming bloody murder.”

Nadia had to laugh. “Yeah, pretty much.” She pointed with her whole hand, flat like a blade, the way stewardesses did. “That way is the emergency exit.”

“Got it. Okay, so—show me what you got.”

  2. Definitely Balthazar! The actual Evernight series was just okay for me, and I always felt like Balty got the short end of the stick, so I was glad he finally found love :)

  3. I've honestly only read one Claudia Gray book, Evernight, which I don't remember liking that much. Still, it was a long time ago, so I might give it another shot. Or, more likely, I'll try Spellcaster. I love that it takes place on the Titanic, and that there is a hot boy involved. And the quote is awesome! Awesome, awesome review. :)
