After a sorcerer kills her mother, fifteen year old Melantha is asked to help catch him. She wants nothing to do with it, but then she learns one of her classmates is the son of the sorcerer. With her spell-turner powers not yet developed, the mission will be dangerous, but it will be downright deadly if the sorcerer figures out who she is and decides she will follow in her mother’s footsteps.

Review From Brittany At Nerd Girl

“Catching a Sorcerer is a fast paced magical novel.  I was hooked from the first sentence to the last.   I have loved sorcery since Harry Potter and this book was a breath of fresh magical air.  Sara Walker did a great job of creating a unique magical world that was believable.  I loved that there was different types of sorcerers beyond just good and bad!   

 
Melantha is a typical teen character with a lot on her shoulders. The story begins with Melantha living with her grandmother, shortly after her mother’s death.  Her grandmother is quite protective of her and wants her to learn magic but Melantha basically refuses. So rebellious teenager aside,  she steps up to the plate when she is given a task that will probably end in her death.  I liked Melantha’s character from beginning to end and found her relatable!  She resists magic only to find that it isn’t something you can resist, it is part of you. My favorite character however, is the cricket, Jimmy.  I loved the banter between Melantha and Jimmy,  it really livened up the story.  
 
My only negative would be the ending, it felt rushed.  I would have liked a lot more details in the epilogue.  If the story is not going to be a series, I like being left with a satisfied feeling.  I like to know where the characters are going to end up! 
 
4/5 Stars”
