Liza Scott can't be bothered with her obnoxious roommate. She's far too busy enjoying life in college and playing video games. As a top notch, tournament-level gamer, life seems to be going great despite the questions of her childhood. That's when she finds herself getting dizzy in the oddest places.
Those spells lead her to even odder situations, both in life and online, and spells of another kind entirely.
Faced with life-altering information about herself medically and metaphysically, and joined by her best friend Felix, Liza faces the changes in her life and her new role as witch royalty. But what she really wants to focus on is the gorgeous Fathom Burke who suddenly seems to know who she is. Maybe it's coincidence, but maybe, just maybe, it's magic.
Is there anything you would change about this book?
This is a gentle book. Liza doesn't have a terrible evil that is after her, at least not yet. Liza is learning about who she is and what she can do. The first chapter is spent introducing us to Liza, her roommate Ashley, and her best friend Felix. It was a bit boring as we learn what Liza likes. The story picks up for me with Felix and learning about his special connections. I even enjoyed seeing Fathom with Liza and learning his connection in the world.
What about Kristin James’s performance did you like?
Kristin is the voice of Liza and her friends for us. We get the Boston accent for Fathom and it seeps through for Liza from time to time, when she is shocked or surprised. We get an actual knock when someone knocks on the door. Cool. I am a fan of sound effects.
Any additional comments?
There is a charming blend of video gaming and magic. Something that is a little different and interactive for Liza.
I'm curious to see who Liza is in the magical world and how she'll get her powers under control.
