The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina meets The Craft when modern witches must save teens stolen by an ancient demon in this YA fantasy-thriller debut.

Dan and Liss are witches. The Black Book granted them that power. Harnessing that power feels good, especially when everything in their lives makes them feel powerless. During a spell gone wrong, Liss’s boyfriend is snatched away by an evil entity and presumed dead. Dan and Liss’s friendship dies that night, too. How can they practice magic after the darkness that they conjured? Months later, Liss discovers that her boyfriend is alive, trapped underground in the grips of an ancient force. She must save him, and she needs Dan and the power of The Black Book to do so. Dan is quickly sucked back into Liss’s orbit and pushes away her best friend, Alexa. But Alexa has some big secrets she’s hiding and her own unique magical disaster to deal with. When another teenager disappears, the girls know it’s no coincidence. What greedy magic have they awakened? And what does it want with these teens it has stolen? Set in the atmospheric wilds of California’s northern coast, Sasha Laurens’s thrilling debut novel is about the complications of friendship, how to take back power, and how to embrace the darkness that lives within us all.

My thoughts:
A Wicked Magic follows Dan and Liss on their magical journey to become witches. After discovering a mysterious Black Book, they decide to take the leap and carry out a spell to turn themselves into witches… but their excitement quickly turns to something much much darker. When Liss’s boyfriend goes missing during a spell gone wrong and the girls hit a bump in their friendship, can they both put aside their feud to save him? Or will he be lost forever?

WOW. This book was such an amazing read! I could not put it down for one minute 😍 A Wicked Magic is described as The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina meets The Craft, and boy it did not disappoint! CHOS is one of my favourite shows and it really reminded me of it. This book also reminded me of a book I read last year, Sanctuary by V.V James.

The friendship between these two girls was so strong, even though they hit a very bumpy road in the beginning, they came back to each other in the end. Alexa was by far my favourite character! She has such a complex past and I loved getting to know her character 😄

I just want to take a second to mention the possible trigger warnings in this book. These include self harm, suicide, depression, obsessive behaviors, alcoholism, anxiety, abduction and child abuse. These are really heavy subjects, so please be warned before reading. More information can be found on the authors website x
