Wow! I’m actually really surprised how much I really liked this book! When I got to the end of Spellcaster, I wasn’t quite sure if it was going to be in a series, but I’m thrilled to find out that there is going to be a series…because I’m seriously eager to find out what happens with the characters.
The very first scene in Spellcaster starts off with something crazy happening. I was totally caught off guard that something like that would happen right from the start. If the beginning of the book could start off that way, then the end just has to be pretty awesome, right? Well my assumptions were correct! The ending was pretty awesome.
Spellcaster is different than most of the other books I’ve read because it moves back and forth between the POV of the protagonist Nadia and the villain. So the difference with this book is there is not a whole lot of surprise. The benefit to seeing the story in the POV of the villain is that you know that she’s extremely crazy! She’s right up there with the all-time ultimate of all evil villains.
Personally, I loved the character Verlaine the best. So I was super happy when we got a couple POV scenes with her character. I would love it a lot if the next books in this series have her character throughout because I would love to learn more about her.
Overall, Spellcaster is a really quick and fun read. It reminded me why I love Claudia Gray’s writing style.

I enjoyed listening to this book, and finished it in no time.
Not too slow, not too fast narrated; the story continues at a good pace. Sometimes some parts of the story are recapitulated later on, which is not particularly necessary to be able to keep up with the story. But as these recapitulations are not very extensive, they do not intrude.
The story is told from several perspectives, following each other smoothly.
