In terms of reading for leisure, 2016 hasn’t been a good year. In total I read a whopping 2 books, hence the lack of reviews on the blog. I read Coffee by Little Angels by Port Elizabeth author Nadine Rose Larter and the new Harry Potter book. This JT Lawrence Grey Magic review will be short, as I don’t want to write about any spoilers (or at least any big spoilers).
Due to my reading hiatus, I struggled to get into this book. I literally carried the book everywhere with me, in an attempt to read it. When the cover started peeling and a chunk of pages fell from the spine, I knew that it is now or never. So when I went on an impromptu trip to East London in January, I took the time away from distractions to read and managed to get it half way done. I managed to finish the book on another road trip to King William’s Town.
JT Lawrence Grey Magic review
Raven is a thirty something, modern witch living in Gauteng. She has a website and a very active twitter account. She’s a modern witch who runs into trouble with the law. She’s kind of hardkoppig, (afrikaans for stubborn), which leads to a lot of her misfortune. If she just had to listen to people, she would have spared herself a lot of misery. But at the same time, there wouldn’t have been a storyline if she did and she wouldn’t then have grown as a person.
I feel like this book should come with a warning for adult content. The scenes pop up unexpectedly and are quite explicit. Seeing that vampire and witch stories are currently quite popular among tweens and teens, one might pick up Grey Magic.
Without revealing too much of the story line, this is my review of the book.
