EBOOK ♪ Small Town Witch (Fae of Calaveras, #1) ♋ Opel-rallye.de

I read 2 of the 3 books in the series and found them to be a decent read in the YA genre with a whole lot of fantasy thrown in Writing about and handling teenagers is rather difficult, but the author manages to bring out their characteristics with perfection.The writing is simple and the story line is interesting with a setting in a small town where both magic folk and humans co exist The humans know about the vampires, sorcerers and others and even go to school with them There is a lot of fun and everything seems perfect in Rosamunde s little world, right up until she starts to ask questions This leads to a shattering of her previous perceptions and changes everything, turning her world upside down What do you do when the world as you know it is not actually how it is The story on the whole is entertaining and fun with its serious moments An enjoyable read, the story is well introduced and light in the first book, then takes on a slightly serious tone with adventure and exploration thrown in.Read it to know Rosamunde is a witch, so is her mother It s not so unusual, at least not in Madrone, a gold rush town where faeriekin abound Rosa, as her friends know her and her sister Akasha go to Crowther Private Academy, the Jr and Sr High School for magikin, few humans, even witches or scorcerers go there In Rosa s class there were only 5 humans.Her family gets along very well, almost never arguing, or fighting about anything Even her friends think they are exceptionally nice to each other Rosa is at that age where she should start dating, but really, she s never wanted to Just the thought of dating makes her blush She slowly starts to realize that there IS something odd about her family I won t spoil the story, but what she finds is a real shocker A great book to start a series, good for middle school and up,some mention of LGBT issues, but not the main focus of the story I can t wait to read about Rosa and her friends.

I would read the second book if there was one D This story is perfect for the young adult but it will also keep anyone older interested You see things throughout the story that gives you clues about what will happen in the end but not enough to give away any surprises Rosa is one smart young lady who has some very loyal friends I love the mixture of magical characters There is a kitsune, a human daughter of vampire, children with Fae and human bloodlines and witches The story moves along very nicely If you want to see what will happen next, there is another book to follow If you don t, you can stop here and only be left with one lose end Well worth reading. I liked reading this book Small Town Witch is a town with an array of paranormal beings The story was quite good Rosa, a teen witch, has a difficult task ahead of her Her friends help her deal with the situation and aid in what needs to be done The characters are all great Well written Recommended Rosamunde is a sixteen year old witch living in small town Madrone, Northern California In the world of this story, humans and magical creatures, or magikin, coexist in relative peace, with a series of laws and rules regulating the magical beings activities Rosamunde herself is a regular human who made a pact with a fae in order to obtain her magical powers and follow in her mother s footsteps She s eager to learn advanced spells, but her mother, who has been teaching her for the past three years, thinks she s not ready, much to Rosamunde s frustration.Magic isn t weird in this world In fact, at Rosamunde s private school, sorcery and magitek are electives she attends faerikin parties with invisible floating dance floors and many of her friends have some magikin blood in them.I found the setting fascinating, and all the little imaginative details really brought Madrone to life in my mind I was enchanted and I didn t want to leave On the other hand, the characters are all drawn vividly, with their very real problems and intriguing personalities that ground them even in this world where magic is the norm Rosamunde herself is a great character, strong and smart but real, and her voice, which narrates the book in first person, rang true I loved the other characters too, especially the faerikin Ashleigh and Glen, the kind of human girl Heather who s basically me , and the enigmatic, charming fae man who changes names from day to day.The book grabbed me from the first page, and I devoured it whole in two days The plot has plenty of surprising turns and exciting moments, all driven by realistic characters who act in ways I could always understand, if not always sympathize with The first part sucked me in with its charming picture of life in this small, weird town But slowly, sinister hints started to appear, leading to the exciting and dramatic conclusion and keeping me glued to the book throughout It ends on a slight cliffhanger, leaving the way open for sequels, which I will most definitely read.
