Fifteen-year-year-old Callie Hall has just found out that she is a witch...and things keep going wrong. Sometimes her mind seems to make things happen, things she cannot control. She can set fire to things without a match, and when she's angry people can get hurt. Her friend Josh understands that she's a bit strange, but it is only on a dark and dangerous visit to the tunnels beneath the ruins of St Andrews' castle that he realises just how strange she really is. Something comes back with Callie--in Callie--something she cannot escape. Can Callie control her power long enough to send back the darkness before it takes over her life? Will Josh ever understand her secret?
This will be a short review, as I neither enjoyed or hated Dark Spell, it was just...there.
Fifteen year old Callie thinks her life is boring. She isn't popular, and she really doesn't have any friends, (well, not in her town) her only solace being Josh, whose from Edinburgh and keeps in contact via facebook. Me, being in Wales , knows this method very well as I have a really good friend in Canada.
