Clara is a witch, but not just any witch. She is an Everwitch, the only one in the world. Throughout this book, Clara takes us along through her highs and lows, trying to find her true purpose in the world, taking control of her magic, and debating whether or not her special magic has been a blessing or a curse. The incredible descriptions of setting in this book really transported me into Clara's shoes, stepping into her world and following her journey. I also loved how this book was not just your stereotypical witch book - there were no spells, no strange potions or drawings - the witchcraft and magic that is mentioned in this book is completely different than any of the other witch related books I have read. This magic is more about internal feeling, and it makes the book so much more intimate and is able to get us readers closer to the main character. This book suits many different types of readers - those who like romance, action, adventure, and those who are interested in witchcraft.
About This Book
For centuries, witches have maintained the climate, their power from the sun peaking in the season of their birth. But now their control is faltering as the atmosphere becomes more erratic. All hope lies with Clara, an Everwitch whose rare magic is tied to every season.
In Autumn, Clara wants nothing to do with her power. It's wild and volatile, and the price of her magic―losing the ones she loves―is too high, despite the need to control the increasingly dangerous weather.
In Winter, the world is on the precipice of disaster. Fires burn, storms rage, and Clara accepts that she's the only one who can make a difference.
In Spring, she falls for Sang, the witch training her. As her magic grows, so do her feelings, until she's terrified Sang will be the next one she loses.
In Summer, Clara must choose between her power and her happiness, her duty and the people she loves... before she loses Sang, her magic, and thrusts the world into chaos.
Practical Magic meets Twister in this debut contemporary fantasy standalone about heartbreaking power, the terror of our collapsing atmosphere, and the ways we unknowingly change our fate.
