Gabriella Lepore's book The Witches of the Glass Castle is a heart warming story of powerful witches, friends, family and finding true love. The story was well written and the characters effectively developed. I was ensnared by the story line immediately and captured by the delightfully crafted characters.

Mia and her brother Dino have just come into their powers as witches. Needing a place to further learn about themselves and the gifts that have been bestowed upon them, the siblings find themselves at the Glass Castle. However, there is an unforeseen power that wants Mia's brother, Dino.

Colt is a Hunter. A sentry of sorts for the Glass Castle. With great powers of his own, he was born and bred to hunt and kill all sorts of things witches included. Although, never is his wildest dreams did he think that he would learn to be human, really human in a way that he could love. He was born to be cold and vicious, but the day that Mia walked into the Glass Castle everything changed for him.

I loved this story. It brought about wonderful feelings of love and family. The feelings of knowing that how you are born is not a choice, but the friends that you trust is a choice that you can make. A story of coming of age, finding oneself, and living life to the fullest contain the concrete theme throughout this book. I recommend this book for sure. I can't wait to read more about this story! Beautifully done, Gabriella!

First let me say I loved this book. I mean I love when a book grabs you pulls you in and makes you want to read it all in one day. One that gives an escape from reality. One that makes you love some of the characters in the book and despise others. One that lets you see something coming but still has you saying OMG when hit happens. Yup that’s what I love in a book. Any one of them will do but this book does it all. I had my moments of laughing out loud and even cried a little (but I’m a cry baby, so that might be why). I really enjoyed this book. It was such a joy to read.

Ok on to the book and the author. One I have never heard of either till this one was released on kindle a friend invited me to the release party so I thought I’ll check it out. After all the cover is amazing and draws you in. From page one I was intrigued. I found the author did an amazing job getting you to feel and like the characters. I felt the story was well developed. The plot was amazing and I loved all the twist it took. Like I stated some things you see coming but when they do you still are like yes while others having you say no!!
This is a really good read and I recommend you pick it up today.

The Witches of the Glass Castle by Gabriella Lepore is an interesting story, there's no doubt about that.

We begin by meeting Dino and Mia, brother and sister. They, via an event (I won't mention what as it'd be a spoiler) discover they are/to become witches. To train, they're sent to The Glass Castle where many other young witches have been sent for generations to learn to discover, control and use their powers and skills.

At the castle we meet Wendolyn, an older lady, surprisingly old actually, who is in charge of training and watching over these young adults.

There are many different kinds of witches and each individual has to discover their own power for themselves. There are various Arcana, like Sententia and Tempestus.

There are also the feared Hunters who are powerful indeed. Hunters are born and bred to live, fight and serve, to protect their covens and their communities, at all costs.

We meet a couple of Hunters pretty early on in the book and not long after the initial meeting between them and Mia, she bumps into one of them again, Colt. Colt unexpectedly helps Mia (I won't say how, it'd be a spoiler).

Colt and Mia develop an interesting relationship throughout the book. Hunters as a rule are to be void of humanity and emotions to enable them to fight and hunt rivals without emotional ties to hinder their judgements. So, the relationship between the two is an unusual one. Mia brings out the humanity in Colt, which he somewhat dislikes initially, though he does eventually begin to accept that he has some kind of feelings for Mia. You'll have to read the story to understand the dynamics between these two characters.

The enemy: There is a rival coven on the lurk around the glass castle. This is where we meet Tol.

This book came highly recommended to me by a friend over on Instagram who was hosting a read-a-long, so I decided to jump on board and give it a go. I had one of Gabriella Lepore's other books on my Kindle, but hadn't managed to get around to it yet, so I was excited at the opportunity to read something of hers.

Mia and her brother Dino have their world rocked, when out of the blue they learn that they are both witches and are sent to Glass Castle for the summer to develop their abilities. Whilst Mia seems to take it all in stride, Dino struggles with it right from the very first.

Dino was a character that I found a little bit hard to like. He was incredibly harsh at times and I just couldn't understand why. It is revealed to us part way through the book, but I think I could have liked him better if I had known his reasons a bit earlier in. I think his storyline was the one that I enjoyed the most though. He is faced with the toughest of choices and the much darker path, which was the most exciting aspect of the story for me.

I liked Mia, even though there were times that she came across as quite young and vulnerable for her age. I liked her willingness to embrace the changes in her and to take the initiative to learn more and understand it.

The romance between Mia and Colt didn't have me on board from the beginning. Colt is very short and abrupt with Mia and there were definitely no warm and fuzzy moments between them in the beginning. But I think Mia was a bit like me, in that she was intrigued by Colt. I wanted to understand him better I think. He is very cocky and self assured and has no problem telling everyone how great he is. Colt is a hunter and he has no room for love.
