Rating: 4.5 stars
“My mind absorbed everything in the spell book I clutched tightly to me. Pages ruffled inside of my head, urging me to remember things and then to forget them. Voices chanted with tempo rising at the breaking points of pain until the book vanished and words to an ancient spell scribed across my arms. Each stroke brought blood to the surface, imprinting words I could not read; words that would forever change who I was.”
Jade had spent the majority of her life running from the Triad. A powerful group, who would stop at nothing to obtain Jade and the missing spell book for leader, Lorenzo’s, nefarious plans. And now that she has absorbed the highly coveted magic contained inside the missing book, there is nowhere left for her to hide.

With the help of her friends, Jade steps out from the shadows and learns how to fight back. But no one is prepared for Elinor-the woman bound inside of the book that’s trapped in Jade’s mind. Now she not only needs to protect herself from the Triad, but from what’s hiding inside her mind as well.

Jade never expected the answer to it all would revolve around love.

Edge is dark, mysterious, and a sworn member of the Triad. He also hides a secret past that threatens the thin line he walks between good and evil. Lives are at stake when Jade and Edge’s two worlds collide. Can Jade learn to trust him when he says he is her pre-ordained and vows to do everything he can to protect her? But more importantly, can she trust herself and the woman in her mind?

I had been desperate to read this book since the author asked me to help reveal the cover and then I saw the cover and got to read the synopsis! This book was so amazing! I normally don't really like books about witchy type things, but Casted was amazing! It really did blow me away from page one! I thought that it was written very well and for a debut novel was brilliant! The plot of this book was amazing! I got really into it and it held me attention all the way through! There were also plenty of twists and turns to keep it interesting! Most of the twists and turns I didn't see coming! The plot was an explosive one with lots of actions scenes as well! I love a bit of action in a book and Casted had plenty of it! There was also romance in the plot as well! I love the romance! It was written so well and I could really see the amount of love some of the characters had for each other! The characters were just as amazing as the plot! Jade was the main character and she went through so much during the course of this book! She went through a lot of changes as well! I adored Jade! She embraced the world she'd been thrust into and she did everything she could to succeed! I connected really well with her as well! Jade was the sort of character I love! She took her role seriously and she would do anything to protect the people she loved! The love interest for Jade wasn't who I was expecting it to be! I was expecting it to be Dagger, but it actually turned out to be Edge! I was really disappointed that Jade's love interest wasn't Dagger too be honest! That is actually the reason that I took it down half a star! I know it says it's Edge in the synopsis, but I didn't click onto it when I was reading the story! I then thought that there was maybe going to be a love triangle between them, but there wasn't! I'm happy that there wasn't a love triangle though as there was so much going on in the book! Edge was the sort of character that you don't really want to like when you first meet him, but his sarcasm is so funny that it makes you love him! Edge was so cute with Jade! I loved how protective he was of her and as a couple they were amazing! I originally thought that this book was a standalone when I first started reading it until I got to the end! It has a cliff-hanger that I didn't see coming at all! I'm really looking forward to seeing where the next book is going is going to go and luckily I've read the first four chapters of it! The cover for Casted is stunning! You don't realise how well it actually suits the book until you've read it! Big thank you to Sonya for an ARC of Casted and also for sending me a signed copy!  

Author bio:
Sonya Loveday, first and foremost is a reader, an avid one. It is of that love that brought her to the realization that this was the answer to the nagging persistent feeling that ‘there’s got to be something more’.
The dream came alive in 2009 when she purchased her laptop and began the tedious step of becoming a published author.
When she’s not reading, she’s writing. When she’s not writing, she’s reading. And when she’s not doing either of those things she’s sleeping, shuttling her children back and forth to school, letting the dogs and cats in and out of the house for the umpteenth time in the last hour and dreaming of a clean house.
