But once she meets Stephen, who introduces her to what she is and what she can become because of her witch powers, her world is turned upside down and the book really gets exciting. She gets threatened by people who are scared of her new-found powers and she has to choose between her powers and the life of her roommate.
After getting a taste of what she can do with magic, she can't resist it. I won't spoil the story by telling what happens to her roommate. You'll have to read it for yourself to find that out.
She meets the Bishop Family and with their help is able to work through the acceptance of her power and becomes bound to the craft.
The book is very exciting with lots of intrigue and plot twists and it kept me turning the pages till the end.
The only thing I would have liked better is a bit more detail on the villain, his back story and motives. He could have been a bit more defined with a stronger presence throughout the story.
Knight does a great job of keeping the biggest twist hidden throughout the story so that the reader is surprised with the big reveal at the end.
With a voice that will make you laugh out loud, Knight shines in bringing her character's personalities to life.
Although there is more to be desired in the back story and a few character developments, this will bode well for Knight as the reader will follow her through to the end of her series to see if good magic will prevail and if Savannah will truly claim her power and be bound to the irresistible Stephen.
With Knight bringing magic to life in New York City, the reader will find themselves thinking maybe witches are real, after all.
"Everything happened in slow motion, my first thought was Hadley was dead for making me wear these shoes, and the second was that I was certain I was about to ruin our night out. Someone caught me around the waist and turned me around at the same time. It looked like he had just dipped me, like we were doing the Tango. People started clapping for us and a giggle escaped my lips.
"I looked up to see the person who saved me from one of the most embarrassing moments of my life and when we made eye contact it felt like I knew him. His green eyes seemed to have flecks of purple in them and his lips were wet and full. His face was chiseled; he had a sharp straight nose. An unexpected rapid fire built in my stomach and spread through my body. A blush accompanied the fire and spread across my chest and face. I stayed in his arms staring, telling myself I was in shock, until he stood me on my feet."
Savvy sees Stephen, her rescuer and hero, again in her history class. Stephen is the guest speaker on the Salem Witch Trials. His great-great grandmother was an accused witch.
Ruby Knight's The Bishop Witches, the first book in the Bound by the Craft series, is a wonderful new adult story. Ms. Knight puts the reader in Savvy's head, and chronicles Savvy's adventures with her fun and exciting writing style.
I'm sure we will be seeing more good things from this author.
However, there were run-on sentences in almost every paragraph - to a very distracting degree. The grammar was lacking. This novel definitely could use some hard-core editing to make it ready for main-stream publishing.
I also wasn't a huge fan of some of the language. Along a similar note, I felt the main relationship didn't need the rapid jump to 'home base' at the end. It could have been better-developed by the more chivalrous direction it was heading prior to that final seemingly out-of-character leap. Personal preference, yes. But, if this is YA fiction, it wouldn't hurt to convey a message that holds truer to the 'you don't have to give it up after knowing someone for 1 week' message. The entire novel, til the end, seemed to give that air, so I was a little shocked when Savvy changed her mind at the end.
In all, it was an exciting, can't-put-it-down novel with GREAT potential!
