3.5 stars: Spellcaster (Spellcaster series, #1) by Claudia Gray

"When Nadia’s family moves to Captive’s Sound, she instantly realizes there’s more to it than meets the eye. Descended from witches, Nadia senses a dark and powerful magic at work in her new town. Mateo has lived in Captive’s Sound his entire life, trying to dodge the local legend that his family is cursed - and that curse will cause him to believe he’s seeing the future … until it drives him mad. When the strange dreams Mateo has been having of rescuing a beautiful girl—Nadia—from a car accident come true, he knows he’s doomed.

Despite the forces pulling them apart, Nadia and Mateo must work together to break the chains of his family’s terrible curse, and to prevent a disaster that threatens the lives of everyone around them. Shimmering with magic and mystery, New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray’s new novel is sure to draw fans of the Hex Hall and Caster Chronicles series, and fans of the hit CW TV show The Secret Circle."

Published March 5th 2013 by HarperTeen. I listened to the audio book format of this book.

I honestly don't have much to say about this one, because it seemed to be for a younger age group than what I normally read. If I didn't know when it was published or who it was by, I would seriously think that it was an R.L. Stine Fear Street book. So I give it points for the nostalgia factor, plus it did hold my interest. I just wanted something deeper and a bit more grown up. 

I also want to add that the narrator for the audio book is fantastic!
