New YA Witch Family Series ~ SPELLED ~ Kate St. Clair

Misfortune seems to follow the Sayers family. Georgia has tried to reestablish normality since her mother died, and she’s no closer to escaping her strange past when a mysterious fire destroys the only other high school in her tiny Texas town.  
Georgia is thrown into the company of Luke, a cryptic senior who brings her face to face with the truth about her heritage. Her loving, perfect mother created her family for the singular purpose of birthing five of the most powerful witches in the world, capable of terrifying magic.  
Now that she knows the truth, can Georgia keep her siblings safe? Who is behind the dark cult that’s after her family? And does Luke know more about her powers than even Georgia does?

 A wickedly wonderful beginning to a family witch saga.
Kate St. Clair's SPELLED reminds me of Patti Larsen's Hayle Coven series.

Coven or cult, these families of witches practice serious magic.
All have both light and dark within them. 

Some choose to focus on the dark magic for personal gain, even if it means destroying blood family.
The main witches introduced in this first novella are 4 sisters and a brother, most of whom are in their teen years. One sister is several years younger. 
Their mother was a witch who, along with her mother, their Gemmie, placed a spell over the children so they would not know of their heritage and magic. The idea being to protect them from evil witches.

A chance meeting at high school after a tragic fire, sets into motion an awakening and exchange of information that puts everyone in danger. While this book is wrapped up nicely, there is so much potential for the story to continue.

Kate St. Clair was born in a tiny town outside of Austin, TX. At fourteen, she was accepted to a creative writing program at Oxford University in England. She attended boarding schools in Texas and California. When not writing, she’s contending with her activity ADD, which entails horseback riding, aerial silks, and playing with her menagerie or rescued animals.
