Men come and go, but magic is forever...right?

Wrong. After a few months of letting witchcraft slide, Jane Madison discovers that not using her powers has her rapidly losing them. Meanwhile, her warder is avoiding her, her familiar has moved out, her mother is abandoning her again and her grandmother is...getting married? With her world turned topsy-turvy, Jane is at her wits' end trying to set things right. Staking everything on a last-ditch spell that backfires spectacularly, Jane is left full of questions. Will her powers return? Will she find true love? Will she talk her grandmother out of orange and silver bridesmaids' dresses?

What magic does the future hold for this modern girl?

Jane has been neglecting her talents and discovers that what isn't used can be taken away. I disliked David and his unwillingness to be honest about the growing feelings Jane and David have for each other. I feel like he was responsible at least in part for the trouble Jane gets into. But the magical crisis brings Jane closer to her mother and grandmother in important ways and she is able to claim her power and love in lasting ways. ( )

Synopsis: It’s six months after Jane Madison has survived the test set for her by the coven and found that she is indeed a powerful witch. She has taken that time to focus on her ‘day job’, that of reference librarian. When her mother calls and asks to borrow some runes, Jane finds that her bags of runes, as well as her personal magic books are moldering. As it turns out, since she hasn’t used her magic, it has nearly vanished. Now she must decide if she is to take the steps necessary to regain her magic, or if she is going to let it, her warder, and her familiar all go. To jump start her powers, she creates a anima to start energizing her magic, but loses control of it. Once again, she meets the ‘man of her dreams’ and finds he falls short of what she needs. Jane’s grandmother and her mother get their familiars, and they all work together to get Jane’s magic back. Jane discovers that using their powers together creates very strong magic. Finally Jane realizes that she’s in love with her warder, David.

Review: Another piece of brain candy. ( )

I enjoyed this book. The plot was not the strongest but I still found it entertaining. I so wanted to see how it ended so that kept be reading through the slow parts.

This is one of those books that is a light read and can be finished super quick. ( )

While it would not do to take this series seriously, especially with regards to the arcane, it's a fun set of books.

Jane is a well-rounded and complex protagonist, and the other characters are well-drawn as well. In this one the plot threads go a bit wild, but are resolved reasonably well. Jane's relationships with her friends, family, and co-workers are interesting and complex.

Now, on a purely magical note- I figured her Big Spell to exercise and thus regain her powers would go off when she and her warder and familiar called the quarters widdershins. (Also- WTH about the quarter attributes??? The directions are not consistent with either the classical or the physical elements in her region!) Now, in the book this is not the problem... but if Klasky wants to use a few elements of ceremonial magic and/or witchcraft, it might behoove her to get a couple of the basics right!

Still, it's a fun novel, with a lot of character growth and development on all sides, and big changes at the end.

Recommended for fans of magical chick lit. ( )

I liked this book as well as the others but the ending was very abrupt. ( )
