SHELBY PETRIE'S REVIEW OF ~CONJURE by LEA NOLAN~ (YA)



Conjure follows a 14 year old girl--Emma--who stumbles upon a mysterious curse that ends up sucking her into the world of hoodoo magic to save the lives of both her brother, Jack, and her love interest, Cooper. As the mystery continues to unravel, the reader begins questioning the character's outcome. The magic in Emma's world was detailed enough to keep the reader intrigued and thirsty for more.
I found Emma's voice to be very believable for her youth and the author paid attention to every detail when it came to scenery and the magic that Emma was forced to learn to save those she loves. The romance was innocent and light, which is refreshing for the readers who just want to devour a good story without the gushy scenes getting in the way of the plot.

Overall, I found this to be a very good book and I can't wait to read the next one in the series!

  1. I can only wish we had the technology we have now back in the day when I was younger. I do not know how many books I would have devoured. I am trying to encourage my younger nieces and nephews to free more.
