#SpelledTour Book Review

Title: Spelled
Author: Kate St.Clair
Publication Date: April 1, 2014
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal
Misfortune seems to follow the Sayers family. Georgia has tried to reestablish normality since her mother died, and she’s no closer to escaping her strange past when a mysterious fire destroys the only other high school in her tiny Texas town.  
Georgia is thrown into the company of Luke, a cryptic senior who brings her face to face with the truth about her heritage. Her loving, perfect mother created her family for the singular purpose of birthing five of the most powerful witches in the world, capable of terrifying magic.  
Now that she knows the truth, can Georgia keep her siblings safe? Who is behind the dark cult that’s after her family? And does Luke know more about her powers than even Georgia does?
My Review:
All I can say about this book is WOW! It has everything in it that you could possibly ask for in a Fantasy, Horror, Romance and Mystery all thrown into the mix! I don't know exactly what you would call that kind of book but this one can fit any of these descriptions depending on what chapter or even what paragraph you are reading.
Georgia is the oldest child and when they start a new school (something they have to do ALOT since things happen and people get suspicious) she meets a boy named Luke with whom she has feelings for, both good and bad. If she is having a good day, she likes him and if she is having an awful day, well, let's just say it's best he stay away, especially since she is starting to uncover her hidden talents that her mother passed down to her.
All five children have certain gifts that they don't know about and because Luke knows about them, he decides to help them practice and learn how to handle them without getting themselves hurt.
If you love YA Fantasy books, then this should be at the top of your list!
Happy Reading!
