I find stories about witches to be really engaging reads, and if you throw a big kind of creepy old house in the mix, that automatically makes things even better, so I was excited. What excited me more was the fact that all of the witches in the Tomlins family were men. I think there are a very severe shortage of young adult witch stories feature male witches.
Maggie and Joel both started out a little whinny for my tastes, but both of them grew on me. There is certainly not insta love in this story, because Maggie and Joel seem to hate each other. but once they started talking the gap from bickering to crush was jumped rather quickly. It is one of the reasons that I think this story will appeal more to a younger crowd rather than an older one. The story is a quick read that moves at a very brisk pace. It kept me engaged to the very end, and I cannot wait to see what the author is going to do next with it. I want to know more about the golden light around Maggie, so I hope that comes up again.
In the next book, I want to see more of the back story of Maggie and Joel. It was briefly mentioned that they used to hang out during the summers, but we didn't really get to dive into why that stopped. I would like to see that explored a bit more. And there are lots more magic to come as well.Read more ›
I was instantly sucked in to Maggie's world, where the people of the small town of Blackheath know there's something weird about the Tomlins boys- rumors run rampant that they are all witches. When Maggie is told by a fortune teller that she has a hex on her, she goes to the only person who may be able to help her. Joel Tomlins. Childhood friends who drifted apart over the years, Maggie and Joel work together to figure out what the mark on her is and get rid of it.
I love Joel. He has this intriguing quality of being self-confident, yet at the same time not really sure of his, and Maggie's, feelings. Maggie is a really great character who's a good person, but also has a crafty side to her that will do what needs to be done to get what she wants. I found her likable and entertaining.
I became completely absorbed in this book and immediately one-clicked the sequel, Blackheath Resurrection, as soon as I read the last sentence. Though I have a ton of books on my kindle carousel waiting to be read, they're gonna have to wait. I NEED to find out what happens next!
Maggie and Joel used to play together as kids. As they grew up, they grew apart. Everyone in Blackheath knows that the Tomlin family are witches and no one cares. No one is fearful of the family and the Tomlin'd don't flaunt their magic to others. It is just a normal boring town or so everyone thought.
Maggies and her best friend Isla head to the local carnival. When the fortune teller accuses Maggie of being cursed, she is taken back. The only person she can think that would ever hex her is her old friend Joel. When she confronts him, he swears he didn't hex her, but will help her break the curse. Things go from bad to worse when another witch family shows up and decides to "recruit" a human to become a witch hybrid. Now, breaking the curse on Maggie has become Joel's only concern as he uncovers her curse is actually a mark. He finds that he still truly cares for Maggie but the thought of her being "recruited" to another witch's coven seems unbearable.
Can Joel protect Maggie? This story is very interesting and I very much enjoyed seeing how it would all work out.
Maggie Ellmes is a teenage girl living in the very small village of Blackheath where she goes to Blackheath High School and is also living there (it's not only the local high school but is a boarding school as well). You see her parents are kind of neglectful when it came to raising her and her grandparents are to old to care for her. Maggie has been living at the school for a while and she knows Joel Tomlins and everyone in the whole town knows that all the Tomlins are witches. One night Maggie is told she is cursed and that is when the story begins.
I love when stories are told from alternating view points (especially love interests) and that is what is happening in Blackheath, the story is told from both Maggie's and Joel's pov. How both see different sides of the story and the reader knows how they feel about each other before the characters figure their s*** out. Also this takes place in the fall, my favorite season and has a carnival. I have recently discovered my love for books that have a carnival scene, if done right I totally infatuated with them.
Maggie is a decent character but there is nothing about her really stands out for me. She really is written as just an average teenager which is weird but not. Blackheath is written like how this world is but with just touches of magic in them, nothing real big, so I guess in that since is would be normal for her to be just an average girl.
Joel however is the one who is more interesting.Read more ›
