Tutti in paese considerano Kate una mezza strega, forse anche per quegli strani occhi a mandorla di un azzurro chiaro, per il suo viso bianchissimo e contornato da capelli neri e lucenti che le arrivano fino alla vita. Lui, Jarrod, sente immediatamente una forte attrazione per quella ragazza, e nello stesso tempo un'inquietudine che lo spinge ad allontanarsi. Jarrod non capisce, Kate sì: lui ha il dono, come lei, ma non ne è consapevole e soprattutto non sa gestire i suoi poteri. Kate non ha una storia: non ha mai conosciuto il padre e la madre e vive da sempre con la nonna ai margini della foresta pluviale. La storia della famiglia di Jarrod invece si perde in un passato lontano, in un castello ai confini tra Scozia e Inghilterra.

Old Magic was my first published book and has remained a favourite with readers in countries around the world, having translations in fourteen international languages. It is a young adult paranormal fantasy with romance, adventure and time-travel with one of the original strong female leads for this Leggi tutto
May 8-10, 2010 I REALLY like this book. It's really a coming of age story for both the hero and the heroine, but especially for Jarrod, who has a LOT of growing to do. The magic is really interesting and the big bad guy is REALLY scary! My only complaint: There wasn't NEARLY enough kissing. ;) I wish Leggi tutto
Bought my copy for less than a dollar. I started reading it at least three times, but I couldn't get past the first chapter each time. Finally, on a Friday night when our ISP sucked big time and I had no internet to distract me from reading, I went through the pile of to-read books beside my bed. The Leggi tutto
I can not put in words how much I love this book. I have first read it when I was 14 years old and I don't know how many times since than. Jarrod was my first book crush and still is <3
'I recall the look in Rhauk's eyes the moment he spotted Kate. It will stay with me forever, carved into my brain like an engraving on a headstone. It's as if he found something he treasured, something he's been looking for all his life.' (view spoiler) [THE PLOTKate Warren lives with her Grandmother, after her Moth (hide spoiler)] Leggi tutto
Το διάβασα για δεύτερη φορά μετά από 16 χρόνια... Αν και είχε κάποιες αδυναμίες σαν ιστορία, πέρασε πολύ ευχάριστα η ώρα μου και ήταν ολοκληρωμένο για stand-alone, κάτι για το οποίο είχα επιφυλάξεις αρχικά! Leggi tutto
2.5 stars is what I really want to give it. When I first read an excerpt of the first chapter at Amazon.com, I thought- fantastic! A high school story, yes, but one where this bumbling boy, unaware of how much power he has, comes into contact with a girl who realises just how dangerous he could be- a Leggi tutto
Un libro que me ha encantado. Que maravilla, fantasía, brujos buenos, una misteriosa maldición, un malvado brujo, un viaje en el tiempo y muchas aventuras. Me ha atrapado y he estado tan entretenida entre sus páginas. Tengo que investigar si hay mas partes. Es una pena que a nadie se le haya ocurrid Leggi tutto
Oh my gosh. This is one the best book I have ever read!!! Or maybe I am getting super extra excited because I am reading these freaking awesome books after 1 month bcuz to exams!!! This book was totally awesome and I just can't believe how can anybody give this book a very low rating and freaking
Loved it! Couldn't put it down. This is a story I adored from beginning to end. For once the girl was the brave one, and the guy was the one who wouldn't take peer pressure or any risks for what he believes is good. The mythology and time-orientation were great. This is a book about magic, but also ab Leggi tutto
