From The Book Junkie Reads . . . Spells and Sorcery (Lexie Carrigan Chronicles, #1) . . .
Lexie was turning fifteen and she was not your typical teen. She loved watching documentaries. She did not love Twitter/Facebook, social media or was she a reality tv horder. She was not overly popular, fashion concise or other girly type minded. She was however awkward and confused. She was the perfect character for me to fall in love with.
I enjoyed Lexie and her trails and errors of learning how she really was, what she could do, and how to cope with it all. I just think that I loved Marie more. I was finding myself wanting more of Marie and her sassy. Sisters have a way of upstaging you at every turn. Even when they are not suppose to.
You have magic.
One sentence, three words, four syllables. Enough to change my life forever. And I’m not talking about the whole spells and sorcery thing.
Lexie Carrigan thought the weirdest thing about her was she preferred watching documentaries and reading the newspaper to reality TV and Twitter. But on the eve of her fifteenth birthday, her aunt and sisters drop a bomb–she’s magical.
Now the girl who never made waves is blowing up her nightstand and trying to keep from wreaking havoc on her school. When a kind stranger shows up with all the answers, Lexie hopes he’ll be able to help her control her newfound powers. But Gavon may not be as kind as he seems, and soon Lexie finds out that being magical is the least weird thing about her.
Spells and Sorcery is the first YA fantasy from S. Usher Evans, author of the Razia series, the Madion War Trilogy and Empath.
S. Usher Evans is an author, blogger, and witty banter aficionado. Born in Pensacola, Florida, she left the sleepy town behind for the fast-paced world of Washington, D.C.. There, she somehow landed jobs with BBC, Discovery Channel, and National Geographic Television before finally settling into a “real job” as an IT consultant. After a quarter life crisis at age 27, she decided consulting was for the birds and rekindled a childhood passion for writing novels. She sold everything she owned and moved back to Pensacola, where she currently resides with her two dogs, Zoe and Mr. Biscuit.
Evans is the author of the Razia series, Madion War Trilogy, and Empath, published by Sun’s Golden Ray Publishing.
