Publisher's Summary

"Twilight meets Harry Potter." Fans of magic, mystery and romance will fall in love with book number one in the Amazon Best-Selling Star-Crossed Series!
Sixteen-year-old Eden Matthews has been in and out of private schools for the last two years. She can't seem to stop herself from closing them down. Kingsley is her last chance to finish high school. Only Kingsley isn't like the other schools she's been to. The students are different. But, then again, so is she. After meeting Kiran Kendrick, the mysterious boy who seems to be the source of all her problems, she is suddenly in a world that feels more make-believe than reality.
When her best friend Lilly is taken away and Kiran's life is threatened, Eden finds herself right in the middle of an ancient war that is so much bigger than high school. She alone has to find a way to save her best friend and the boy who has captivated her heart.
Reckless Magic is an intricate story about adventure, magic and forbidden love. Eden Matthews is an unlikely heroine determined to save the world and be with her one, true love before it's too late.

Very good!

I purchased this book because it was described as a cross between Harry Potter and Twilight, two of my favorite things! While not as life changing as either of the above mentioned, still very good and I will continue on to book two.

An amazing beginning

What an extraordinary beginning to what promises to be an extraordinary story. Eden is such a strong character. I loved every minute of the story. I can't wait to start book 2.

Bailey Carr did an amazing job narrating the story. She had some great accents and the inflections in her voice were on point.

Overall it was a great experience listening to this story!

Want a rubbish teenage romance /Harry Potter take off? Absolute rubbish!!!

I would never write a review without listening to/reading the whole book, so made myself do it while gardening. Dire- poor grammar, childish use of multiple adjectives, obsession appearance, hair and designer products, so much repeated narrative you can predict the next words- that it “made my blood boil.” Think it would give JK Rowling a good laugh or reason to start a lawsuit.
Two good things about the audiobook were- I got it for free and the story was so repetitive, if I got to the wrong part after a break, it didn’t matter!The worse thing about it is I can’t give it no stars.

Needs SERIOUS editing.

The premise is fine, it could be good, but sadly isn’t. Trying to be twilight in a Harry Potter setting and failing to hit either mark at all.

I was made uncomfortable by the misogyny of the prose - idiot girl needs men to save her continuously, none of whom deign to offer her any explanation as to why. There is a lack of emotional depth to any of the characters, and the lead male is completely unlikable, treating the lead female extraordinarily badly throughout. I realise this is a children’s book, but this is not a healthy model of relationships to be presenting to anyone.

A personal issue: There are some phrases that cropped up repeatedly that must be American vernacular, which I found grating:
‘On accident’ and ‘could care less’.

None of this has made me eager to listen to the next book, which is disappointing as I am a committed HP fan and enjoyed Twilight too.
