Don't let the classification of young adult stop you from reading "The Grimoire Chronicles : Veil between Worlds" By Sally Dubats. This is a story for all ages, even I was a bit skeptical after reading the first few pages but soon found out that this author had written a fantastic fantasy story! The novel is told from Cassie's POV, like other normal teens she is trying to find out where she fits in. But she is a witch and comes from a line of witches so that in itself makes it difficult to "fit ...more

This is a very enjoyable book, it is very readable and the principal characters are well-rounded and easy to identify with. I was left wanting to know more about what happens next. The only thing I can't understand is why it hasn't been published by a traditional publisher yet?

The characterisation within this book is very good, especially for Cassie and Trenton and to a lesser degree for Iris, Holly, Mouse, Jean-Luc and Aunt Faye. It would have been more satisfying if the book was a bit longer a

Summary :
Halloween looms, and the Veil Between Worlds thins. Seventeen-year-old Cassie heads home from school and meets Trenton, a beautiful boy with an enchanting voice. Darkness blankets the encounter so Cassie forgets she ever met him. . . and what he did to her. For other girls the lost time would be the end of the story, but Cassie is Wiccan and she uses her intelligence and authentic witchcraft to remember the truth. Her spell sets in motion a mind-blowing adventure that takes

The following review is copied from my blog, here.

The Grimoire Chronicles: Veil Between Worlds is the first book in what will be a series of 8, each of which will focus on a different sabbat (the holidays that Wiccans and other Pagans celebrate). This one takes place at Samhain, ie. Hallowe'en. The main character, Cassie, is a Wiccan, who uses her witchcraft to find out why she's missing part of her memory, and how that's connected to the mysterious and attractive Trenton.

The Grimoire Chronicles: Veil Between Worlds, is not your average YA book!

The MC, Cassie has descended from generations of witches. She is intelligent and from the very start of the story she has an understanding of the Wiccan religion but like a typical teenager is somewhat unsure of herself and fears others do not accept her for who and what she is.

Although I am not a Wiccan myself, I have studied Wicca using Farrar's texts and have witnessed a number of rituals. I found the accurate depiction

This is a brilliant foray into paranormal romance and Wicca practices. This stunning beautiful masterpiece drew me in from the first page as the book touched on many aspects of my solitary Pagan path. The author is a practicing Wicca; her book introduced the reader into the different facets of the Wicca religion. Basic concepts were touched upon in the beginning of the book, weaving the Wicca element with romance masterfully. It was a refresher on some of my own practices so I enjoyed it immense ...more

Within a couple of minutes of reading, I realized how much I wanted to be in this world. The rich descriptions allow the reader to feel like they are there while the story develops with some unexpected twists.

The witchcraft within the book is honest and wonderfully done within the story. Gives those unfamiliar a glimpse into the life of a real witch, without distracting from the story. Fantasy and reality mix well to share insights while sweeping you into a tale you won't soon forget.

This book was a joy to read. Not only were the characters engaging, but the plot was beautifully thought out. The sub-plots added a delightful dimension. The fact that Ms. Dubats clearly knows Wicca is a huge bonus--she didn't give in to the common habit of making things up out of thin air.

Loved it! The story was fast-paced and interesting (and no vampires--yay!). The spells were made all the better because they're real. Someone who can draw/paint needs to do a portrait of Trenton because he sounds super hot! I can't wait for the next book--ARE YOU DONE YET? LOL

I really enjoyed reading this book. I loved the fact that the author created the leading character, Cassie as a truly believable teenage witch. By this, I mean, Cassie practices the craft in a truly real-life manner which resembles that of many modern day witches around the world. Wicca is her religion, and I found this book to have the religion aspect and craft incorporated into it better than most other books I have read in a similar genre. Most stories with a leading character as a witch have ...more

So, I just finished The Grimoire Chronicles: Veil Between Worlds by Sally Dubats. To be honest, when I began readin this I did not expect to enjoy it as much as I did. Yes, I thought it looked good and it was certainly the kind of book I would read- witchcraft, gorgeously enchanting male interest that has some secrets -but I didn't really set my hopes too high. Then I began reading the book. It was a great book! The prelude prompts questions that has answers within the secrets of the book, and t ...more

After this encounter, Cassie finds herself at home with her eccentric aunt, her only living relative. Cassie knows something catalystic has taken place. The trouble is she cannot remember what. Using her natural talents and learned knowledge of the wiccan craft, Cassie summons Trenton's spirit to an astral plane. She quickly discovers that Trenton ...more

I decided to read this book on a whim after suffering withdrawals from another series. I started the book not really expecting much, just a light, quick, fun read. What I got was all of the aforementioned and then some!

This book really shocked me. I didn't know anything about the author, and only a very basic synopsis of the story (girl is a witch, meets a boy, her world is turned inside out). Veil Between Worlds follows Cassie, a young Witch, and is told from her POV. She's 17 years old, her be

Veil between Worlds is a surprisingly unique tale that drew me in with its mystery from page one. The mix of paranormal elements that Dubats explores in this tale is not one that I've come across before and I'd dare to assume, one that isn't very common. (I don't want to say more for fear of giving anything away!) The writing style flows nicely and is wonderfully descriptive.

I loved Cassie's narrative voice. She was a believable teen without being whiny or annoying which is key for any YA novel

The story line of the book was great. I really enjoyed stepping inside the life of a Wiccan, written by someone who actually studies the Craft. It had a good moral to it as well but I think the main character didn't progress to that point in an entirely natural way. The writing itself needs some work but it's nothing a good edit couldn't fix; it paints the images of the story well enough to understand what is going on but occasionally word choices throw you out of the reading. Despite the above ...more
