BOOK REVIEW: Old Magic by Marianne Curley

Ordinary school life changes for Kate when Jarrod moves to town and joins her class.  Outside of school Kate has magical gifts and quickly realises Jarrod has magical capabilities.  Problem is Jarrod is completely unaware of his own talent or how to control it.  

In trying to help Jarrod understand his own powers Kate has the opposite effect of alienating him.  Several disasters later Jarrod gradually comes round to the idea and soon they discover his misfortune is in fact down to a family curse created hundreds of years ago.

With the help of Kate’s grandmother they attempt to try and get rid of the curse.  But will their skills be enough against the Old Magic of the past.

Old Magic takes you on a journey risking both Jarrod’s and Kate’s life.  Told from both perspectives Old Magic is a great read.  I would definitely recommend particularly for teenagers and any fans of Twilight.  

Available to buy from WHSmith at the moment for £5.24 (RRP £6.99)
