Gwen Harper left Pendleford thirteen years ago and hasn’t looked back. Until an inheritance throws her into the mystical world she thought she’d escaped. Confronted with her great-aunt’s legacy Gwen must finally face up to her past. The magic she has long tried to suppress is back with a vengeance but gift or burden, for Gwen, it always spells trouble. She has to stay – she has nowhere else to go – but how can she find her place in the town that drove her out after branding her a witch…?
This book has such an interesting premise. I love books that hint at magic and so this was right up my street.
I liked Gwen from the first page (she was a great protagonist,) and I immediately wanted to know what had happened to her and what was going to happen. Cameron was a great love interest and, to me, he had a slight ‘Mr Darcy,’ air about him.
The plot had great twists and turns and when I thought I had the story figured out, the story would go in a different direction and surprise me. I didn’t want to put it down and the further I got into the book, the harder it was to stop reading.
Also, with it being set near Christmas, I feel all christmassy (which is alright by me.)
A wonderful debut novel and I’m looking forward to reading the next one.
The Language of Spells is available via Amazon.
