The Spellcaster's Grimoire

The Spellcaster’s Grimoire by Mark All is a paranormal romance book.  Maynard, Georgia was founded by witches over 200 years ago.  It was built on a crystal that the witches draw on for their power.  Patricia “Trish” Sinclair is thirty-seven years old and has written two books.  Trish has used her mother’s grimoire as well as spells from other witches for her two books called The Spellcaster’s Grimoire I and II.  Trish has run out of material for her third book and does not know what she will do.  She casts a spell for inspiration when Benton Moorcraft comes to her with a knife sticking out of his back.  Trish put information in her last book about the crystal and the coven’s grimoire and now Kate Cavanaugh wants it.  Benton is the Keeper of the Grimoire and refused to tell its location to Kate (so she stabbed him with the Knife of Truth).  With his dying breath Benton tells Trish to get help from Aidan McCarthy to get past the wards on his house to find the grimoire.  Benton makes Trish to new keeper or guardian of the book.

Trish then hears banging on her front door.  Kate has arrived and Trish had better get going.  Instead of heading to Aidan’s house for help, Trish goes to Sondra Patton who has wanted to be the leader of the coven for a long time.  Sondra is home along with two of her friends and fellow witches, Gay Nordan and Nancy Cotswold.  Trish is a witch but she never really learned how to use her talents (when she did not get something the first time, she would give up).  Trish’s mother was a good witch who used her powers to help and heal people.  Instead of helping Trish, Sondra gives her the help of newbie witch, Rain Devereaux (how is that helpful).  Then Sondra and friends go off to choir practice.  Do they not realize that if Kate steals the book and the power from the stone, that Sondra and friends will be powerless (as well as age rapidly.  They have been using the stone to keep themselves living).

Trish, Rain, and a reluctant Aidan go off to find the grimoire and stop Kate.  Their adventure goes on throughout the whole book.  Of course, let us not forget the arguing between Kate and Aidan because of sexual tension between them and then the kissing (did they forget about the grimoire and stone).  The Spellcaster’s Grimoire started off good but went downhill quickly.  The book focused more on romance than paranormal activities.  I give The Spellcaster’s Grimoire 2.75 out of 5 stars.

I received a complimentary copy of The Spellcaster’s Grimoire from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  The review and opinions are strictly my own.

Thank you for  checking out my latest review.  I am currently reading I'll Be There For You by Kerry Barrett.   I hope you have a wonderful weekend and Happy Reading!
