Namesakes by Miriam Cumming is A Wicce Novel. Medusa isn’t the prettiest girl in school and, desperate to reverse a curse, she turns to Wicca, joining her best friend’s coven. Wicca gives Medusa what she has been looking for and draws her deeper into a life of peaceful ritual and magick. UAI scores are high and everyone is happy until a rival coven kicks into high gear. Curses that cannot be traced to anyone begin springing up and cyber-bullying is rife. The police are helpless, which means Medusa and her new friends have to take the lead and stop their rivals before any more lives are torn apart. Can they stop them in time and what lengths will they need to go to?

Namesakes: A Wicce Novel by Miriam Cumming is a unique story and a refreshing addition to this genre. The storyline is something new and the action starts on the first page. The plot is steady, paced well and never drops into any dead spots, and it covers several issues that face teens and young adults in today’s society. The characters are really well-developed and the main protagonist is a strong character, likable and easy to relate to. You won’t lose your way here; the story runs a straight course, full of excitement and action and you won’t want to put it down once you start reading. It really is nice to read something so new and fresh in this genre and I hope there’s more to come from this author.
