“It’s warm, humorous, emotional, heartfelt, and full of magic.” —Carrie Vaughn, NYT bestselling author

An understated and quiet novel about the transformative power of the theater. Unassuming in its fantastical elements, this is about a woman with an unsettled past affecting her present and the intersecting coincidences that move her toward the future. Maggie is relatable and her journey compelling.” —RT Reviews

“Beautiful characterization, graceful storytelling, secrets galore, an achingly tender love story, and yes, magic. Plenty of magic! There’s plenty to love about this wonderful, unusual book…. Spellcast is as close to perfect as it gets for me.“ —My Bookish Ways

A charming fantasy novel….A slightly bittersweet but appropriate conclusion left me wanting more, in fine theatrical tradition.” —Locus

“A charming emotional read that tugged at my heartstrings…. The deft mix of magic and pragmatic interpersonal problems create a mesmerizing read.“ —Night Owl Reviews

Spellcrossed is contemporary fantasy, but the contemporary parts ground the fantasy. Magic and the otherworldly are present, but everyday human connections are the real glue of the story.” —Specific Romantic
