Invoking Nonna (Triple Goddess #1)
By Sage Adderley
Published December 20th, 2013 by Sweet Candy Press
Genre: YA, Paranormal
4 stars - Interesting new series!Maggie Sloan is a free-spirited teenager growing up in rural Georgia. Unlike her peers, Maggie is a witch and so is her mother. In addition to normal teenager rites of passage, she must learn about her family lineage and witchcraft. Her mother, Laura, keeps a tight lid on their family secrets - like the mysterious life and death of her grandmother who passed away before Maggie was born.
Practicing the craft will test solid friendships and introduce Maggie to new realms. While seeking the truth about herself and her family, Maggie is faced with danger from churchgoing classmates who will stop at nothing to make sure she is found out. Laura and Maggie strengthen their bond through witchcraft and work together to overcome their enemies. Are their magical gifts enough to keep them safe?
Invoking Nonna was an intriguing and unique read. Although some of the topics in the book have been used before, they are written in a totally different way.
I enjoyed how Adderley was able to inform the readers about the Wicca religion. For example, Maggie wasn't just a girl learning how to perform spells. Maggie learned about the actual Wicca religion and learned how it should be used for good and not evil. Speaking of Maggie, I thought that she was a pretty great character. She was a typical teenage girl and grew up throughout the book. There are quite a few characters in this book and we get to learn about a few of them personally. The view points switch between Maggie, Laura, Laura's mother, Maggie's best friend, and another girl, Gillian. I thought that this was pretty interesting and helped us to learn more about each character and their actions. I especially liked reading about the grandmother and her past.
Invoking Nonna is a great first book in a series and I am excited to see where the series goes. This book is filled with some suspense, mystery, and even a few lessons. The characters were great and some were a little frustrating. :) It's an interesting read and will have you wanting more. Invoking Nonna is a book that I recommend you check out!
