You’re not going to see it coming.
I got into this affair hoping for witches. I did not expect to feel empty after I finished it. But it turns out that this fantasy adventure is a captivating surprise just waiting to unfold.
Isis Rivera is an adolescent witch adopted by a Vicani couple named Sebastian and Selena. Together with the friend of Isis Zack, they perform magic shows sold in Las Vegas. But life takes a strange turn when Isis begins to suffer from seizures. These are also not your typical seizures. They cause destruction to those around her.
To avoid harming innocent civilians, Isis and her family travel to New Salem, a centuries-old witch shelter hidden from the public eye. Isis must decide if she should let an old enemy bring her back to her normal self or let her land attacks end her life.
Witch media fans such as enchanted And of Cami Garcia Beautiful creatures Will be fun with Journey to New Salem. The book is fun, exciting, funny, original and full of endearing characters. Zack Galway, for example, is an ordinary human magician, but his ability to do above and beyond to protect those he loves most makes him the guy we want to be around.
Then there is Valeria, the powerful villain of the series. She and Isis had fought in the past, back when she wanted to force Isis to learn to be a vampire. Valeria is no small villain. Her black and dark abilities are Scary. She does not care who she cuts to to achieve her malicious goals. She is unpredictable, violent and utterly chaotic. Rosendorf has developed here no small villain, one that you are going to love to hate.
There is also a really strong issue that is divided here between Isis and Laria regarding their conflicting beliefs about humanity. Although witches are underestimated and treated incorrectly in this world, Isis believes that witches can live in peace with humans. But Valeria believes that humans should bow to witches or exterminate. These conflicting minds remind me of the view of mutants and humans in Marvel’s X-Men world, and I’m here for it all.
This YA witch adventure belongs to the ranks of Rachel Hawkins Hex Hall And Kate Tiernan’s Sweep series. It’s a slow start at first, but things really work out when Isis and her family enter this new world. Teens deserve all the hope, magic and adventure they will get in this book.
