Title: Reckless Magic
Author: Rachel Higginson
Series: Star-Crossed Book 1
16 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 and the last private school willing to accept her.
She is focused on just getting through graduation until she realizes Kingsley is not like the other private schools she’s been to. The students may be different, but so is she. And after meeting Kiran Kendrick, the boy who won’t leave her alone and seems to be the source of all her problems, she is suddenly in a world that feels more make-believe than reality.
To top it off, she is being hunted by men who want to kill Kiran and her best friend Lilly is taken away to a foreign prison. Eden finds herself right in the middle of an ancient war, threatening everything she loves. 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 mystery, 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.
This book was so fun and I went right back to it every chance I got!
This book was so good and I’m really excited that there are a lot of books in this series with a bunch of adventures to come.
I actually listened to the audiobook version of this, which was really nice because I could listen to it while I was cleaning, getting ready, or doing some type of craft.
I really liked the characters in this book and how everything turned out. It definitely keeps you guessing and I’m looking forward to the next book.
I have a feeling that I’m going to finish this series so fast. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a good fantastical romance.
