In Spell My Name: A Modern Witch’s Tale by Amy Raines, a young witch awakens in a field. She remembers absolutely nothing about the circumstances that brought her to the field and neither her name nor the fact that she has any particular powers. She soon receives directions from an invisible person, identifying himself as the warlock Solomon. He helps her to help herself and warns her of the certain danger around her while also filling her in on the history of the witches and the rules governing their actions and use of magic. As she struggles to discover her true identify, she encounters a mixed cast, some friends and some foes, particularly a witch named Darlene who seems determined to kill her. Can she learn how to defend herself before it is too late?
In Spell My Name: A Modern Witch’s Tale, Amy Raines has written a fast-paced story. It is told in first person from the point of view of the nameless young witch, whose name we do not discover until later in the story. The conversational style of the author’s prose engages us readers. We are in the main character’s mind and feel her pain and confusion as she determinedly fights to find her way out of her predicament and regain her memory and her history. There is an interesting connection between the young witch and the historic Salem Witch Trials, adding to the adventure and depth of this story. Raines has an imaginative and engaging style of storytelling. For a quick and fun read about magic and witches, this book is a good bet!
