User Review: Of Witches and Warlocks: The Trouble with Spells by Lacey Weatherford

Of Witches and Warlocks, is a series of books written by my favourite author Lacey Weatherford. She is an amazing and talented writer, not to mention a wonderful wife and fantastic mother to six, yes six children. How she finds the time to write as well I will never know, but I am grateful she does.

Lacey has created a strong, role model worth, protagonist called Portia Mullins. Portia is an ordinary teenager, living an ordinary life until she reaches her sweet sixteen birthday. Instead of being given a dress or some frivolous gift, she is told she is a witch. A very powerful witch at that. She is a descendant form a long line of witches and warlocks on her father’s side.

Her Grandmother is the high priestess of a coven, in which she meets Vance Magnum. A leather clad, motorbike riding bad boy. Who turns out to be more than her soulmate, they are meant to be together.

The chemistry and romance is breathtakingly deep, as Portia struggles to balance love, life, magic, family and being a teenager.

What I love most about the fact that Portia was a witch, was that she was a real witch that can do some really cool magic. Not just, mix some herbs together and cure a cold. She can move things, blast things and just about anything. However, she needs to learn them and more importantly learn how to control her powers.

Their bond is put to the test when Vance’s past catches up with him. Will they survive it? Sparks will fly and not just between Vance and Portia.

This book is refreshing, different from the others out there. I would rank this book one of the best paranormal young adult books out there. It appeals to readers both young and old. I will read it over and over again. You won’t be disappointed.
