    Review coming soon! Loved this book!! Casted is a fresh take on Witches and Covens. I was drawn from the first sentence all the way to the very last. Magic, romance, mystery, and a heaping dose of action, keeps you on the edge of your seat. Jade, a young girl cast out to live in the shadows, meets up with Rainy and Jessa who give her a somewhat semi-normal life. But like every heroine destined for greatness, the past catches up with her. After being attacked and meeting a mysterious man named Dagge Review coming soon! Loved this book!! Casted is a fresh take on Witches and Covens. I was drawn from the first sentence all the way to the very last. Magic, romance, mystery, and a heaping dose of action, keeps you on the edge of your seat. Jade, a young girl cast out to live in the shadows, meets up with Rainy and Jessa who give her a somewhat semi-normal life. But like every heroine destined for greatness, the past catches up with her. After being attacked and meeting a mysterious man named Dagger, she discovers she is from a long line of powerful Witches. The Original Coven. But that's not the worst of it...she is also being hunted. Jade has to learn who she is and who she can trust while running for her life. Seems easy right? Wrong! Because then comes Edge-Jade's hot new love interest who whisks her off her feet and sets her mind on fire. He not only becomes her biggest problem, but also the answer to her problem. I don't want to give anything away so I will leave that somewhat confusing. The twists and turns Sonya Loveday has expertly written will leave you on your toes trying to guess just who and what is behind the mystery of Jade's past. The world she has built and the relationships between the characters are easily believable and leave you wanting more. Loveday's wit shines through her characters and I can't wait for the next! This is a MUST read!

    The world is falling apart, never being able to stay in one spot for too long, or risk getting caught by a mysterious group of enemies that want to see you dead. Living in a state of constant fear, never knowing who is going to be around the corner when you walk down the street, never knowing which day is your last is terrifying enough without having any living family members or even knowing who you are anymore. It's enough to drive someone crazy, and that's not even including the magical powers The world is falling apart, never being able to stay in one spot for too long, or risk getting caught by a mysterious group of enemies that want to see you dead. Living in a state of constant fear, never knowing who is going to be around the corner when you walk down the street, never knowing which day is your last is terrifying enough without having any living family members or even knowing who you are anymore. It's enough to drive someone crazy, and that's not even including the magical powers that haven't reared their heads yet. Powers? Yes, powers. Jade was running from someone. She didn't really know who, and nobody could tell her who either because her family was dead. At least, she figured they were dead since she never had them in her life for as long as she could remember. She wasn't alone forever though, because she was saved from a life of loneliness by two women who would become her best friends, Rainy and Jessa. For months, it seems like things are going to be okay, that whoever is trying to find Jade won't be looking for her anymore. But one day their peace is shattered, and someone ends up finding Jade, someone who opens the door to a whole new kind of drama. Jade ends up finding out that she has magical prowess, and it becomes even stronger when she ends up reading for a mysterious book with a woman in the book, literally. It's like she is telling Jade what to do, which spells to perform, all that jazz. But can Jade really handle everything that this mystery woman is telling her to do, and is everything that this woman shouts in her head "good", or does this woman have her own agenda against the Triad? This book was such an amazing story to read. It takes a while for me to find good books about witches and magic, and this one definitely did not disappoint me. I really loved Jade and just her attitude and character. Of course, there were times when she would freak out like any normal person would, and that would of course be extremely frustrating to read. Despite her freak outs, and despite her doubting her abilities sometimes to the point where I wanted to shake her and tell her to get over it, she was an amazing character to relate to, and I couldn't help but root for her. I still have to read the second book, but I know that it won't disappoint me.

    4.5 stars 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!

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!

    Casted has a very interesting storyline. Jade has been on the run for years, she's just not sure who it is she's actually running from. When she finally stumbles on some answers, she finds out they only lead to more questions (which happens a lot). She's a spell caster and just doesn't know it. The evil bad guys are after her because - well no one really knows yet. Her friends' lives are in danger. And she can't use her magic because its been bound. Her life is now quite exciting and adventurous Casted has a very interesting storyline. Jade has been on the run for years, she's just not sure who it is she's actually running from.

Her life is now quite exciting and adventurous as they try to unlock the key to her magic and her memories. There's a couple of love stories involved, but none of them really stood out as special to me. That was OK though since they weren't the main topic of the story. There is another character named Jude that has a few big roles, and with such similar names I kept mixing him up with Jade at first. The characters were a mixed bag for me. Jade, Edge and Dagger were very memorable and really stood out. The others at times blended together into one massive side character. Jade's to best friends became mixed up with another she met part way through. Some of the romances came out of nowhere. It seems like they may have been added just to keep people from getting jealous over other relationships. Since they weren't the main topic of the story it was easy to overlook most of them all together. This book could have been a little better. My copy had some formatting errors and some typos that really threw me off a few times. As I said earlier, the story was very interesting. There is much more to come and the characters are fun and easy to relate to. I wish I had seen a little more about the bad guy, Lorenzo. He seems to be playing such a huge part in their plans, but our actual time with him is very short and at times it felt like he might not really exist. - See more at: http://hotofftheshelves.blogspot.com/...

She worked magic figuratively and literally with this book. She took something that is written about very often and really turned it into a completely original and captivating story. It deserves far more than 5 stars, but that is all I can give so it will have to do. This is one of those books that has just the perfect amount of action with its romance. Yep, you read correctly, action. Its got it in spades and ti fits perfectly with the storyline. What this book also has is a wonderful love story. One of those that really gives you that catch in your chest while your reading it. That “Click” feeling that tells you this book is THAT good. I got it. So will you. The characters are great. I couldn’t get enough of them. All of them, not even jsut the main few, but all the supporting characters are really what pulled it al together. You become part of this world and are magically enveloped into it. With a fantastic plot line and wonderful characters, the book is sealed with exquisite writing. Some of it I just had to re-read for the pure fact that it was so captivating I wanted to relive it. Now the ending. Sonya and me must have a little talk because I think it is completely uncalled for to leave me with such a HUGE cliffhanger. How you gonna leave a girl hanging like that? So lets give her lots of support and show her how much we want this next book, because if the first is any indication we are going to be blown out of the water.

This book was enthralling from start to finish and I was totally immersed in the story. It was unique and put a fantastic twist on witches and wizards. The characters were all so wonderful; with strong, feisty girls and smoking hot guys, I couldn’t help falling in love with each and every one of them. I felt every emotion that poured from the pages, and I cared so deeply for the characters that I was cheering for them every step of the way. There was never a dull moment as Jade and her friends faced hurdle after hurdle, trying to figure out exactly what was going on whilst fighting the dark forces that threatened to destroy them. It was exciting to read as Jade learned to harness her powers. She struggled to keep her wits about her with the constant distraction in her head, and my heart broke when that evil woman manipulated her, as well as Edge, stealing their precious moment of intimacy. I was so happy that they were able to overcome it all and their true feelings were the key to the mystery spell. This book was never predictable. The magical elements were fascinating and I was awed by Loveday’s imaginative writing. She has created a work of perfection. Mystery, magic, action, adventure, kick ass characters, and plenty of romance – this book has it all. I cannot wait for the next installment, because that ending…ARGH!! I need book two now! Casted is, without a doubt, a top contender for my favorite book of the year. Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this book, you will not be disappointed.

I wasn't feeling any connection for any of the characters, most especially not for Jade our heroine. She wasn't necessarily annoying or bugged me, I just didn't care about her and couldn't really tell you much about her except some facts. There was a depth missing there. I guess she did annoy me a little with how she quickly she trusted people (like Jessa and Rainy). It felt a little bit suspect, what with her being on the run for unknown reasons since she was young. As for the paranormal aspect, I found that it was kind of laid out in facts too, and I just wasn't enchanted. I wasn't clamouring to learn more. And occasionally I found myself kind of confused -- almost like there were pieces missing that would have helped the story flow better (for example when Dagger all of a sudden tells Jade about being there with the vial...when? Was this when her parents died? Why did he all of a sudden bring that up? It didn't feel like it flowed naturally from what they were doing or talking about). So yeah. Just not a book for me. It's too bad too, b/c I won it. For some reason I feel an obligation to finish books when I don't buy them for myself, you know? Oh well. On to the next!

She didn't know why all the bad things happened to her and finally met two girls who she settled down in an a cottage with. Her friends were Spell Casters, Jade was not, or so she thought.

She has a book absorb itself into her mind along with a mystery woman who was from the Original coven. During this time she is in even more danger as the Triad want the book, so not good news for Jade as the Triad are now killing coven members all over the world to find Jade. Can Jade get the book and woman out of her head? Will she escape the Triad? You will have to read it to find out. Wow I loved this book, it flowed at an even pace, there was never a dull moment and when I had put the book down I was left wanting to read more, so I did. The detail in this book was fantastic and I felt like I got to know every character really well. What a great debut and start of the series from Sonya Loveday.

This was a fast-paced, action, thrill with witches and romance that kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. It was so smoothly written, it is hard to believe this is Ms. Loveday's first publication. I'm willing to bet she has a drawer full of stories somewhere. We can only hope she decides to share more with us! Warning: this does end in a cliff-hanger (I literally cried "nooooo!" when I read the last sentence), but DO NOT let that keep you from reading this book. It will be worth the wait to see what comes next!

Can she trust him? or is he working for the other side? only time will tell. They must stop the evil Triad from finding the sacred book and taking over all the covens and using Jade for their evil schemes.

    Love the fresh take on covens and witches this is a great series that has lots of twist and turns that keep ya guessing from one chapter to the next. It has a nice love intrigue in it, evil characters and of course magic. This is a great debut novel and i am definitely on board for book two

    Perfect I was immediately absorbed in this book and attached to the characters. Very well written and I can't wait to pick up the next one to see what happens.

    With a blurb like this (not to forget the amazing cover!), how could I turn down the chance of receiving a copy from Sonya? Let me tell you how my reading went…. Started reading late night and had to stop after only 10% done. It had been a long day, and I had my youngest home that day, due to some fever.

Started reading late night and had to stop after only 10% done. It had been a long day, and I had my youngest home that day, due to some fever. So I was tired, but needed something to take my mind off things – and decided to start reading Casted. Turned out it was EXACTLY the kind of distraction I needed. Next day: two kids home sick, which all parents out there know means running around the house making sure everyone get what they need, leaving little to no time left for much else. Right up to the point when lunch was closing in. Both my kids wanted pancakes – and seriously, so did I. I decided it would be an excellent time to try out my multi-tasking skills, and ran for the kitchen with my kindle. The result? Most of the pancakes were perfectly made, a few slightly crispy – more than intentional. LOL But damn, I just couldn’t put Casted down. When the kids finally got tucked in, I turned right back to Casted and read until late night. My eyes were crossing, my head hurt, and I was soo tired, but it was worth every second. I can’t possible explain to you how much I love this book. To follow Jade from being a timid, scared girl, to a woman who will stand down for nothing, who will fight to her death for her friends and loved ones. See how she tries to work and tame her magic, to control it, her desperation of being linked with Elinor (the woman in the book), her fear and anger towards the Triad for what they have done to her family, to herself and to countless others – all to get their hand on a book. And honestly, that book is…well, it’s creepy. Not only is Elinor bound inside the book, but some of the spells inside its pages….Phew… If they got in the wrong hands, they could cause more than havoc! I enjoyed the connection between Edge and Jade, and the fact that he gave her space enough so she could try and understand what was going on between them, come to terms with a lot of the things going on around her. See, Jade didn’t know she was a witch. At all. Her mother bound her powers to protect her, which was all good and well, but things like that usually backfires. The ending is a bit of a cliffhanger, and I will be waiting “patiently” to read the second book, once Sonya is done with it – AFTER she’s done with her SUPER SECRET project (which I don’t know a thing about *cough,cough*). Sonya creates a tale that draws you in and ensnares you without you even realizing it. Her writing style is captivating (yup – so make sure you’re loaded with everything you need in reach), complex with new twists around the corner (so don’t feel safe reading Casted) and is pure magic. Seriously, if you’re looking for a captive story about witches, determination, stubbornness, magic, love, action, battle between good and bad (with all kinds of grey), interesting characters and fetching storyline – don’t look any further. Casted will certainly give you everything you’re looking for – and much, much more! And to tell you the truth… I can’t believe this is Sonya’s FIRST book. It is insanely good!!!

    This is a paranormal book, the first in the Casted series. Yes, you defiantly have to read the second book Spelled. I recommend this to ages over 15, especially those with the hunger for a little magic. This book is about witches or casters. There are several characters in the book, but Sonya Loveday describes them in detail so I was never confused. I really enjoyed the relationship Jade has with her friends. I also understood her needing answers. I also loved how Edge doted on her. This is a st This is a paranormal book, the first in the Casted series.

There are several characters in the book, but Sonya Loveday describes them in detail so I was never confused. I really enjoyed the relationship Jade has with her friends. I also understood her needing answers. I also loved how Edge doted on her. This is a story about Jade, she has been on the run most of her life. She knows dangers follows her and she can never let her guard down. After being found by some friends whom are secretly casters, she settles down safe, for a couple years. Well she knew danger lurked around the corner and one day it found her. She finds herself in a situation, and absorbs a spellbook along with Elinor the witch bound to the book. The Triad, she learns are the ones hunting her down, will have more of a reason to find her when they know she has the book. As if her life wasn't complicated enough. During all the chaos she meets Edge, and feels an instant connection to him. The major problem is... he is part of the Triad, the very ones whom are trying to kill her. She doesn't understand her feelings for him, well until he explains that they are preordained. Edge and her friends teach her to defend herself against the Triad. Now if they could help her protect herself from the woman in her head. Little does she know the plans Elinor has in store for her. Jade will soon learn the solution to her problems revolves around love. Will she figure it all out before it's too late? Will she ever learn to trust him? Accept that they are destined to be together? Time will tell. favorite passages: "Dreams are born on wings of hope." "She was thin, almost willowy, with silky blonde hair and soft, crystalline eyes." "You have the look of a old soul. Is there anything we can do to help." "Some horrors run deeper then others and take more time to work through." "Sometimes it felt like I lived with a hippie and a hellion." "Give me a second to appreciate that I'm not dead, please." "It reminded me of days when I had nothing better to do than sit by the fire and read." "I was kind of in awe of the little spit fire." "I gave her a silent high-five." "You're like ten Witches all neatly packaged into one little body." "His face, chiseled like a statue come to life." "Listen, you over dramatized Batman, we have no other choice." "Layer upon Layer of grief blanketed me, until my chest heaved on silent sobs and my legs buckled." "His life was on the line and he'd wanted us to be a bunch of cape-wearing superheroes." "We Found Love in a Hopeless Place." "Fireworks exploded under my skin from his touch. " "I closed my eyes and the pages ruffled as I fell asleep." "That's me the Lethal Librarian," I said, chuckling at his bark of laughter." "The spunk, as you say, comes from hating the likes of you."

    4 stars (contains mild romance, nothing overly descriptive.) As one of Sonya’s first books you can see where she got her start writing action scenes. Though Casted is not as suspenseful as most of the books in her Six series end up being, it’s still full of tension, action, and even some romance. I found most of the characters fun and very likeable. This book moves along at a pretty fast pace and never left me bored or wondering when something exciting was going to happen.

The only warning that I can give is that it ends on a cliff-hanger and you’ll probably want to have Spelled on hand before reaching the end of Casted.

    I love this new book!! I am so excited that the author offered to let me be a part of her blog tour for the second book and I loved every part of them both! It’s a wonderful story of a girl finding out the truth about her past and learning to live with it, while finding herself in the process. It’s got mystery, romance, lovely witchies, some awesome magic, and an epic ending that will knock your socks off and have you salivating for more!! I am completely captured by this story. Jade was homeless I love this new book!! I am so excited that the author offered to let me be a part of her blog tour for the second book and I loved every part of them both! It’s a wonderful story of a girl finding out the truth about her past and learning to live with it, while finding herself in the process. It’s got mystery, romance, lovely witchies, some awesome magic, and an epic ending that will knock your socks off and have you salivating for more!! I am completely captured by this story. Jade was homeless when she was found by two lovely ladies. This then leads to her learning about her past, what she is, where she came from, and everything that’s lead her to this point. She’s smart, she’s quite resourceful, she’s amazing when she needs to be, and you’ll learn as she does that she’s quite powerful! She’s now learning that she’s no longer on her own, and though it takes a while to fix her previous attitude, she loves each and every one of her new friends, enough that she’d give her life for them. And her relationship with Edge is FANTASTIC!! She doesn’t just jump on in, she takes it all in. I LOVED this. She really has a good head on her shoulders, and though she makes some mistakes, she’s still pretty awesome. There a great new look of witches and wizards, and who’s the good guy, who’s the bad guy and who’s really with whom. There is so much action, especially as Jade starts learning things, and people start chasing after her. You learn as she does and that’s so exciting. And then you get to go on quite an adventure. And the bad guys really don’t give up, and they break out the big guns. It’s amazing. And scary. The plot is so interesting and when things really start coming to life, you’ll be just as shocked as Jade. Unpredictable. And I will definitely be jumping into the next book ASAP! A very well done beginning to a great new series! 5 MAJORLY MAGICAL PAWS!!!

    I have wanted to read this book since the first moment I set my eyes on the beautiful cover. Well let me tell you this book was amazing! I was hooked from the very first page and the story kept getting better and better. I love it when a story pulls you into the pages and becomes a part of you. I always feel so emotional when the characters go through something traumatic, almost like I am expreriencing it with them. That to me is a sign of a great book and Casted fits that description perfectly! I have wanted to read this book since the first moment I set my eyes on the beautiful cover.

That to me is a sign of a great book and Casted fits that description perfectly! Jade is our leading lady who has been on the run ever since she can remember. Lucky for her she met Jessa and Rainy, two of the funniest friends that help keep her safe and give her a sense of belonging and family. Things get crazy when the leader of the Triads find Jade's location, sending the girls on the run. The group helping to protect Jade gets larger and a lot more yummy when Dagger and Edge join the group. The danger factor escaltes when Jade absorbs the spells from an ancient book and a woman trapped inside the book fights to be freed. There is so much more, but I honestly don't want to spoil the fun you will have uncovering each new piece to this astonishing story. Casted is so well written and has a fresh and unique twist on witches and covens. I loved every second I spent reading this book, but when the end came I let a few choice words slip from my lips. The ending leaves you dying for more. Thank goodness I have Spelled, book 2 in the series. I have to know what happens next. I highly recommend this book. Sonya Loveday rocks this book!

    I have read a lot of fantasy books of different sub-genre based on powers or abilities of some sort, but Sonya Loveday’s Casted takes the cake!

This book ended on a SERIOUS cliff hanger and I for one cannot wait to see what happens next… Honest to God, the last chapter threw me through a loop, my fingernails…gone… Side note: I did notice a few areas where there were missing words or misuse of words but the story is so compelling I was able to overlook this and believe Casted is well deserving of the 5 stars. Spelled is the second book in this series and is also available on Amazon.
