~Review: The Witches of the Glass Castle by Gabriella Lepore~

Sixteen-year-old Mia's life is turned upside down when she uncovers her family secret—that she and her brother Dino are witches. 

Seeking refuge in an ancient castle, the siblings begin down a path that will change their lives forever. Suddenly thrust into a world where handsome warriors command the power of nature and peoples thoughts and actions can be manipulated at will, Mia and Dino struggle to navigate their own allegiances and do what they know to be right, even when everything around them seems beyond their control.

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

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!
