Lacy Patrick And The Wizard Of Darkness

Hello everyone. I am a big fan of reading. Although I don’t get nearly enough time to do it these days there is nothing I love more than to lose an hour or two while cuddled up with a good book.

I read a wide range of authors and am always happy to add to my list of favorites. Im recent years a writer I have come to love is my lovely Twitter friend and fellow blogger Deborah Stansil. Debbie writes brilliant short and long stories, usually horror themed with the most amazing twists. I was intrigued therefore when I found out Debbies latest book was slightly different. Aimed at the young adult market, Debbie has written a book fantasy  about witches and wizards.

Lacy Patrick and the Wizard of Darkness

“When Lacey Patrick dreams of a hot stranger, her whole world turns upside down.
What she learns fill her with dread – not only must she process her whole new identity, but she must also find a way to save herself and her loved ones from a dark force that is stronger than anyone has seen before.
Who can she trust? How can she stop someone so powerful?
Time is running out and Lacey has to find the answers to those questions, and quickly – before it’s too late.”

Lacy Patrick is a very normal teenage girl, trying her best to juggle life in high school, boyfriends and best friends. Finding out that she’s a witch and the only person able to stop the most powerful wizard of their time is one more ball to add to the mix.

Debbie aways shows a very real  insight into the way people think and feel in her writing and this book, although targeted at a younger audience than usual is no different. It tackles themes of teenage loves, friendships and jealously  alongside the main fantasy storyline.  In her search for the wizard of darkness, Lacy finds herself exploring her relationships with friends and even her own motivations at times.

Being a book aimed at young adults, I found it a very easy read. Perfect for a lazy sunday afternoon’s reading. For the most part the story developed in a pleasing  but predictable way, but I am glad to say there is  a little Debbie-esque twist at the end of the book just to keep readers on their toes.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book and will be recomending it to my teenage niece to read over the Christmas holidays.

Are you a fan of fantasy books? Have you read any of Debbies stories?

    I really enjoy reading too, but its often something that gets neglected when life gets busy! Always interested to find great new authors and I really like to read book reviews too 🙂 My favourite books tend to be non-fiction, but I like easy, fast moving fiction too and this book sounds intriguing so thank you, love a good twist! #mondaystumble
