I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
I liked the concept of this book and the synopsis caught my attention at "murderous mermaids, seductive fairies, and manipulative elves". I did feel like it was a lot like The Mortal Instruments in many ways but I didn't really mind.
The writing was pretty good but I felt like the writing could have shined so much more if the editing was better. I really hated the editing. There was a paragraph that was the same sentence twi

Are you ready to meet the world’s latest witch and Mystical Assassin in training? To be honest, give Eliza a minute, as she gets used to her new life, I mean really, to discover she was a witch was a little unsettling, especially when she found she couldn’t do anything magical with her broomstick and the mysterious and condescending hottie showing up everywhere to save her wo

Eliza Rose is a witch, though she prefers to believe that she's anything but that. She yearns for a normal life, one where magic doesn't surround her. Deep inside, she knows she'll never have what she yearns for the most. But that doesn't stop her from trying to live the life she's always wanted to live.

Michael has written a story that grips the reader from the moment they open the book. Eliza's life is surrounded by shadows and secrets. Though she does her best to understand what her mother has

What a Book!! First let me say a HUGE thank you to Michael Weekly for sending me his book.

This novel really jumps right into the story, with Eliza getting ready for College, and meeting some new friends and cute (Hot) boys! Oh but there's one more thing...She is a Witch. So I'm sure you can imagine that there would be a lot of things going on for Liz, not to mention the amount of items that are secured in her backpack every day..

I truly enjoyed the concept of this book, it was unlike my normal reads and I loved the story. I enjoyed being able to see Eliza grow as a person and as a witch. I also liked that even as she grew as a witch that she retained some of her socially awkward qualities!

I can’t believe I’m saying this again, but once again, an idea with potential has been ruined by rushed publication and poor editing. Maybe I have high standards, since I’m starting to sound like a broken record with these blog tour books.

This story had a fresh twist on witches and the potential to be a kickass paranormal action series (think Buffy, but creepy fairies rather than vampires). Unfortunately, the writing was stilted a

Mystical is a page turner. Seriously. If you are into witches, this is a must-read. I was hooked from page one and couldn't stop reading it until I was on the last page, wondering why did I read it so fast and wanting to know more about this world.

This book was different than most witchy books I've read. The heroine would at times drive me crazy because she reminds me of my daughter when she was a teenager, you know, where they don't ask questions like they should but just live each day as though they are invincible. Can't tell them anything. This made the story seem more real. But the mother shouldn't have been so vague to her daughter either. I just loved the cat, her familiar. He was hilarious. I know that's exactly how a cat would tal ...more

Michael Weekly has written a super original take on your average witch story.

The imagery was at times super vivid and lyrical even, that you felt so completely immersed into this world of magic...and then the writing would just become a little stiff and awkward.

Eliza as a character doesn't really undergo any development although i liked her awkwardness and she's a character we can all relate to. But what i really irritated

While she quickly falls for a guy in one of her classes, she is mainly focused on all of the weird stuff that starts to happen around her. Who would have guessed that her mom wasn't crazy when she told Eliza she was a witch? Full of dark creatures called Mystic

Mystical is the first book in what seems a promising fantasy series. Our heroine is Eliza Rose, a teen that feels nothing but average in the “social chain”. She has not a magazine worthy physique, idol’s charm and grace or valedictorian’s brain, but there is something special about our dear girl. She is a witch. You read that right, she is a witch. Unlike, Bobbi J. or J.K. Rowling, the Weekly presents us with a magical world unlike any others. There is no magic wand, hocus pocus or flying brooms

First off, I want to thank Michael Weekly for giving me an ARC of his book in exchange for an honest review.

Mystical is a fantasy novel about witches, specifically a novice witch named Eliza Rose who is learning more about the world of mystics (non humans). She knows that she is a witch and has a broomstick (which is not for flying) but absolutely no idea about anything else in her life as a witch. That is, until, mystics just begin popping up around her and trying to kill her since she’s going

Mystical is an intriguing story that pulls you in to a world of intrigue and mystery. The reader learns as the main character learns about the world of Witches and Mystics that live among us in everyday life.

Eliza Rose starts her new life as a freshman in college, however, this also marks the beginning of her transformation process - attaining her witch powers. Then only problem is that her mother isn’t very helpful or forthcoming on the whole witch thing. Fortunately her best friend, Dawn, is

I have to say Mystical is a great story- one of the most fascinating premises I've come across in a while. I really enjoyed reading it and quickly found myself eager to discover what happens next and unable to put the down. I loved the characters- they were original, real, and funny. While Mystical is a Fantasy novel, I have to say that there is so much about it that feels so real! The author did an amazing job making things believable.

I really enjoyed this book. It's unlike anything I have personally read before. I love the story and this whole world. My only problem with it, it needs more editing. There were just little things throughout that weren't consistent. After I forced myself to stop thinking about that, I was able to just enjoy the story. I will be looking forward to the next in this series.

A truly unique and very intriguing read, a witch story with a twist - I really enjoyed this book.

Eliza knows that she's a witch, but she fails to understand how that really can be as she has no powers, her mum has given her a dagger and a metal gadget with a red button which she calls a broomstick. Can Eliza stay safe whilst learning about the mystical powers that surround her?

Mystical is a mysterious, ingenious book about Eliza a young woman just starting college, whose mother had dumped on her the knowledge she was a witch while in high school, handed her a"broom"( a small device that changed sizes, but as far as she could tell not much else)and told her to never be without it.
