Started – 19/8/12

Format – Kindle e-book

 

Synopsis – Fifteen year old Alana Weatherbee leaves home for the first time to study at the School of Shines of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Finding herself the school outcast, she gains acceptance by becoming champion of the Labyrinth Games in spite of her teammates, the school bullies. Then Alana meets Logan, another outcast and, together, they fight to save their world from the evil Book of Spells.

 

My Thoughts – I downloaded this book as it was free on Amazon and it really sounded like a book that i could get into.

 

This book is about Alana Weatherbee who attends the Shines School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She becomes part of a team to take part in a series of games. Its here that she meets Logan who becomes her boyfriend and they take part in an adventure.

 

Now this all sounds so promising but unfortunatly it just wasnt. To start with i just couldnt get over how simular this book was to Harry Potter, which could be a good thing, but in this case it just wasnt. The whole school setup was so simular, the headmaster was almost a carbon copy of Dumbledore and the Labyrinth games was very simular to the Triwizard Tornament.

 

Also the book just seemed to give a very basic outline of the plot and then not go into anymore detail, it was almost like i was reading a draft of the story. This book had so much potental but unfortunatly it just didnt interest me.

 

I didnt understand the relevance to Logan at all and what benefit he had on the story. I didnt understand the book of spells part either.

 

This is a book that i didnt enjoy at all and maybe i should start to read reviews on Amazon before i download a book again.
