#BookReview: The Fascinators by Andrew Eliopulos






Synopsis: A magic-infused YA novel about friendship, first love, and feeling out of place that will bewitch fans of Rainbow Rowell and Maggie Stiefvater.

Living in a small town where magic is frowned upon, Sam needs his friends James and Delia—and their time together in their school's magic club—to see him through to graduation. 

But as soon as senior year starts, little cracks in their group begin to show. Sam may or may not be in love with James. Delia is growing more frustrated with their amateur magic club. And James reveals that he got mixed up with some sketchy magickers over the summer, putting a target on all their backs.

With so many fault lines threatening to derail his hopes for the year, Sam is forced to face the fact that the very love of magic that brought his group together is now tearing them apart—and there are some problems that no amount of magic can fix.

My Review: Welp I bet you can guess what I am about to say.  That this one that was pegged as The Raven Boys meets Simon in Love ya that is not what this is at all.  The writing was good at best, the characters were subpar, the magic system was not all that well done either. I would say it was kind of like Harry Potter but not all that good.  The plot was kind of really slow as well and overall I just wouldn't recommend this one. 

Also I would rate this more for the middle grade crowed vs. young adult. 










Review

"The Fascinators is a potent brew of magic, romance, betrayal, and the transformative power of friendship--bewitching!"
