Book Review: Boundless Magick by Lowvee Cole




Boundless Magick by Lowvee Cole
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Date Published: October 31, 2013
Publisher: Self

Seventeen-year-old Abigail Stone lives in exile on present-day Block Island, magically binded because of her family's unseemly past. But, one night, during a freak stable accident, her powers mysteriously return. 

Abigail has enough trouble grasping the idea that she can suddenly make magic. She doesn't need the added complication of facing capital punishment for severing a Council-enforced bind. Luckily, the Council spares Abigail's life. However, they cannot ignore the dark and dangerous force she has spawned in their world with her crime. They order Abigail to the sixteenth-century Wiccan kingdom of Adehya. There, they secretly train her to defeat the evil she conjured, which now threatens to destroy the cosmos. 

The Council's plan is shattered when Abigail falls for an off-limits prince. Their forbidden romance leaves Abigail at the mercy of the only entity that can help her fulfill her destiny: a vengeful Wiccan goddess who wants Abigail dead.

Boundless Magic is first in a five part series by Lowvee Cole. Abigail has a lot thrown at her within this book, as a result, so do you while reading, but it doesn't feel like an information overload. It was well paced and well thought out. I loved how it mixed a little modern day with a little historical and some fantasy too for good measure. This will make it appeal to a wider audience. I'm typically not a fan if books with a lot of witchy-ness in them. Especially when they are heavily into the who earth, wind, fire, water stuff.. snore. Thankfully, there was very little of that within this book and much more action to keep me entertained. I was Team Nikolas pretty much from the beginning. One thing I didn't understand about Abigail was how she could enjoy doing some major making out(it didn't give detail, but it insinuated it was pretty hot and heavy) with a guy she didn't really like while being totally into another guy. That bothered me and made her seem shallow to me. Otherwise, I enjoyed Abigail as a main character. There were a lot of twists, and you're never completely sure who to trust. There were a few things that felt a little Harry Potter-ish, but not enough to effect my liking or disliking of the book. This was an entertaining and engaging story.
