Family Magic by Patti Larsen | Book Review

Family Magic

Title: Family Magic (Book#1 The Hayle Coven Novels)
Author: Patti Larsen
Genre: YA Urban Fanrasy


Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of being ordinary. That my mom baked cookies instead of brewing spells. That my dad lived with us, not on the demon plane. All I ever wanted was to be like everyone else.

I know what you’re thinking. You’d die to live in my world. How cool would it be if magic was real and you could do anything?

You have no idea. Here I am in another new town, but it’s the same old thing. Cheerleader bullies? How original. Friendless again? Who’s surprised? I suck at fitting in. Especially when I’m in the middle of saving my family from total destruction.

My name is Sydlynn Hayle, and that’s my life.


Family Magic is most definitely my genre of book, with witches, demons and vampires. Syd wanted out of the family coven, she hates the way magic makes her feel physically. she also has trouble at school she is lonely, always the new girl with no friends, she just doesn’t fit in.

Things turn out very differently when she learns that someone has it in for the Hayle Coven and she seems to be the only one that may be able to stop them.

I loved Syd’s character and her grandmother was a hoot.

This is an exciting, funny at times, magical read that keeps you on the edge of your seat.

I can’t wait to read the other books from The Hayle Coven Novels.

Patti LarsenAuthor Bio:

Patti Larsen is an award-winning middle grade and young adult author with a passion for the paranormal. But that sounds so freaking formal, doesn’t it? I’m a storyteller who hears teenager’s voices so loud I have to write them down. I love sports even though they don’t love me. I’ve dabbled in everything from improv theater to film making and writing TV shows, singing in an all girl band to running my own hair salon.

But always, always, writing books calls me home.

I’ve had my sights set on world literary domination for a while now. Which means getting my books out there, to you, my darling readers. It’s the coolest thing ever, this job of mine, being able to tell stories I love, only to see them all shiny and happy in your hands… thank you for reading.

As for the rest of it, I’m short (permanent), slightly round (changeable) and blonde (for ever and ever). I love to talk one on one about the deepest topics and can’t seem to stop seeing the big picture. I happily live on Prince Edward Island, Canada, home to Anne of Green Gables and the most beautiful red beaches in the world, with my very patient husband and four massive cats.
