Waiting on Wednesday: Spellcaster by Claudia Gray

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights books that have not yet been released, but ones that you should pre-order today! This week's book that we are anxiously awaiting is SPELLCASTER by Claudia Gray.  SPELLCASTER releases on March 5, 2013 from Harper Teen.

When Nadia’s family moves to Captive’s Sound, she instantly realizes there’s more to it than meets the eye. Descended from witches, Nadia senses a dark and powerful magic at work in her new town. Mateo has lived in Captive’s Sound his entire life, trying to dodge the local legend that his family is cursed - and that curse will cause him to believe he’s seeing the future … until it drives him mad. When the strange dreams Mateo has been having of rescuing a beautiful girl—Nadia—from a car accident come true, he knows he’s doomed.

Despite the forces pulling them apart, Nadia and Mateo must work together to break the chains of his family’s terrible curse, and to prevent a disaster that threatens the lives of everyone around them. Shimmering with magic and mystery, New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray’s new novel is sure to draw fans of the Hex Hall and Caster Chronicles series, and fans of the hit CW TV show The Secret Circle.

What more you could want?  I'm really looking forward to this one!  Claudia definitely knows how to write swooon-worthy guys, and I'm sure that Mateo will have his moments!  Plus, there are not enough books that focus on the paranormal aspect of witches.  Most books that have witches also have vampires or werewolves or some other mythical creature that the story centers around, so it will be nice to read one where witches are the focus. 
If you haven't read Claudia's other books, the Evernight Series and Balthazar, you should check them out!
