The story starts of with Ethan's funeral, Darren's brother, who at the time was a normal high school student until he started seeing weird things happening around him that he could only see. Unaware of what was happening to him, he decides to ignore them, but it was hard to do so when his grandfather start telling him what he is and what he is destined to do. The story takes off from there, and it beco...more
With a book cover showcasing a boy playing with fire, I sort of assumed the protagonist would be somebody who had already mastered the art of fire magic …

I was wrong.

Darren leads a relatively normal life. He is a basketball team player. He has a few good friends. He likes to have fun and he has a pretty girlfriend. Life on the outside seems good but he knows his parents are still mourning the death of his big brother. When he discovers the secret compartment in his big brother’s room and retriev...more

'Bewitched' is the first book in a young adult fantasy series that follows the main character, Darren, as he learns the truth that his grandfather has been trying to tell him for years: that witches and warlocks exist and that he is right in the middle of it all. Aside from still dealing with his older brother's death, his family, and school, now Darren must decide if the hot and mysterious new girl at school - Samantha - is a witch and which side she is on. Darren's grandfather finally reveals...more
I have to say, I thought this book was pretty amazing. The cover was pretty cool, and I thought that it may be the best thing, but the story upped it by several notches. Just a warning for everyone who loves a good book.

Bewitched is about a boy called Darren who is your average high school guy. He plays basketball, has a girlfriend, very average. His brother died. Darren finds out that his brother died fighting witches and he's supposed to fight them too.

Only his grandfather has health issues a...more

This is an amazing story. Full of Magic and twist and turns, full of action, and secrets and many surprises. It sure left me wanting more. It’s very well written too.

The complexities of the characters really make this story very intriguing for sure, and very exciting to read. The author uses great detail and history, which is twisted some, but made it all very believable too. That ending really made me wish book 2 was here now.
I think the world Mark created was very exciting, full of witches, de...more

Check back here on April 6 onwards for my tour stop of the book, also featuring a giveaway with 7 chances to win a copy of this book!

It's been a while since I read a witch or wizard book, the last being SPELL BOUND by Rachel Hawkins back last year in 2012. Then when I got an invite for this book and saw the blurb (and, erm, the gorgeous cover), I was pretty psyched about the book! That being said, I definitely got my fix for a good witch-type of book, though I still had a few issues with th...more

Mark Jay Harris did an outstanding job writing this book. It was a really interesting read. It grabs your attention from the beginning. He is such an excellent writer.

This book brings a new perspective into the world of witches. You could never tell what was going to happen next, it was so unpredictable. You can count on this book to add another twist into the plot and leave you wondering.

I love Darren he is such an amazing character, but not my favorite, but he does come in second. Mike is my f...more
Bewitched was an awesome read! The Young Adult genre has really blown up lately with a lot of paranormal based stories. Bewitched deftly navigates the paranormal genre. In Bewitched, we meet Darren. When we first meet him he is attending the funeral of his older brother. During the funeral he experiences some weird sightings that only he can see. It’s a few years later that an incident during a basketball game throws his world for a loop. He begins to believe the stories his crazy old grandfathe...more

DNF at 35%. Not badly written, and interesting characters but this story just didn't interest me.
