The author also incorporated some nice twists into the magic. For example, Trish casts a locating spell to find the ancient book. She heads into the kitchen and pushes the bottle of wine. It opens up a secret passage leading to a room that contains the book. Overall, I was very impressed with the magic. Kate has clearly been dealt a series of bad hands in life and it is easy to see how she has become the witch that she is.
I also liked that she took care of herself and she had a snarky and sarcastic sense of humor. There are several moments in her POV where I laughed aloud. The romance between Trish and Aidan started off really believable. The first time they kissed was completely out of the blue.
They suddenly just went for it. I guess it was because they were in a life and death situation, but it seemed unnecessary. They would take turns whining and soothing the other, only for the character to whine again about the same thing in the next chapter. This got old fast. I felt like a shrink listening to a couple help each other through their problems.
Less of this would be had been better. Lastly, I think the relationship progressed too much in such a short space of time. Final Verdict: A fast-paced book filled with magic. Apr 24, Gayle Pace rated it really liked it. But when deadly, faceless creatures pursue the snarky ex-witch, she must call on her powers again.

Her sources are a local coven, which seems to have made everyone made except Benton Morcroft. He wanted it kept secret. Instead she heads to the coven member Sondra Patton with Kate right behind. This book is rather fast paced and definitely a page turner. It is an urban fantasy with four not so perfect individuals in a coming of age story.
Trish is not at all confident while Rain is too confident. Aiden is a sop due to an ugly magical incident he shared with Kate years before. Lots of action with a little romance thrown in. You might want to start out with Mystic Witch. The Mystic Witch is an another urban fantasy with a battle between light and dark. The book is quite fast paced and a page turner. If you love past pace and fantasy then these two books are for you.
Pick both of them up and you won't be sorry. If you're from down South around Atlanta you will really enjoy how the author used landmarks in the story. It makes you feel like you are right there even if you have never been there. I would give this book 4 Stars.

When they inadvertently allow Kate Cavanaugh, the bad witch of Georgia, to obtain the grimoire, all three must pool their resources; Trish must focus on improving her abilities, Rain aides in remembering the necessary spells to bring everything together, and Aidan must pull warlock skills back out of his hat. Allowing Kate to obtain the book and fulfill her agenda will mean the destruction of the local coven, injury and death of large numbers of local residents, and Kate wielding more power than any one person should ever be allowed.
I wasn't sure about the book at first. The writing at the beginning of the novel didn't seem to be fluid or smooth. Some dialogue transitions seemed rushed or uncomfortable. However, I didn't give up it takes a lot for me not to finish a book. I'm glad I stuck it out.
The Spellcaster's Grimoire by Mark All, Paperback | Barnes & Noble®
The writing style leveled out and the story flowed much better. Trish is a very unlikely heroine. She's a plagiarist - which is a writer's worst nightmare. She's a liar - she writes the book as though she can perform all of the spells held within. She has absolutely no self-esteem and is full of self-doubt but as the story progresses and she comes face-to-face with Kate, she's forced to pull on what little magic ability she has.
Doing this strengthens her powers until she completely breaks out of her shell not only as a person, but as a witch as well. Aiden is a non-practicing warlock with issues concerning his past and the general nature of most people. He learns that not all people afforded great magical abilities will inherently use them for evil purposes. He also realizes that practicing magic, within boundaries, is okay. He becomes the protector of Trish and Rain, all while trying to figure out how to fit in his little plan regarding the grimoire you'll have to read the book to figure out what I mean.
The budding romance between Trish and Aiden is a bit quick in my opinion, but I guess if you're not sure you'll be alive the next day then kiss 'em while you can.
She is a very evil person at the start of it all; however, as we move through the pages we learn a little more about her past. She is certainly a product of her environment, which in her case isn't really a good thing. Rain is the Gothic sidekick that the coven gives to Trish as a helper to protect the grimoire. She isn't that great at magic but her ability to read spells and remember them forever is astounding. This talent does come in handy at times.
She has a sort-of hero worship thing going on with Trish, having read Trish's published works and memorizing each and every spell that the book contained. She, along with Aiden, stand beside Trish as they stare down the enemy and try to protect the grimoire, the coven, the town, and possibly, the entire world.
All-in-all this turned out to be a very entertaining novel. There is action around just about every corner. Once I got beyond the writing issues I had with it at the beginning of the book, I actually found that I was drawn to it and didn't want to put it down. View 1 comment.
The Spellcasters Grimoire
Aug 15, Diana Offbeat Vagabond rated it it was amazing Shelves: witches , paranormal-romance , magic , fantasy , urban-fantasy. She is a best selling author who has written books about witchcraft. She is in a town of witches, her mother was a witch, but she doesn't have her mother's talents. Or does she? When Trish's second book is released and talks about the powerful spellcaster's grimoire, she gets some unwanted attention to say the least.
It's going to take one hell of a spell to save the day. Luckily, the universe owes Trish a few favors. Help Centre. My Wishlist Sign In Join. Be the first to write a review. Add to Wishlist.
