#BookReview: I’m a Gay Wizard (Gay Wizard #1) by V.S. Santoni






Synopsis: You try magic once and it sticks to you like glitter glue . . .


When Johnny and his best friend, Alison, pass their summer holidays dabbling in magic, they never expect it to have consequences. Sure, it’d be great if they could banish bullies or change their lives for the better, and what harm could come from lighting a few candles and chanting a few spells? When they cause an earthquake that shakes Chicago to its core, they draw the attention of the Marduk Institute, an age-old organization dedicated to fostering the talents of young wizards.

Once there, Johnny and Alison are told they can never return to their previous lives, and must quickly adapt to a new world shimmering with monsters, fraternities, and cute boys like Hunter and Blake. But when they’re pulled into an epic, supernatural fight that could cost them both their lives, Johnny and Alison find strength they never knew they had as they battle for love, acceptance, and their own happy ending—all with the help of a little magic.

Rating: ⭐⭐
My Review: I wanted to love this one. It reminded me of Carry On and Harry Potter but sadly it just didn't work out.  I loved the themes of LGBT but the execution of this story just didn't work.  It was bogged down by bad language and so many triggers that I couldn't stick with it.  So sadly this one was just not for me.
