Into the worm's hole
This is from the point of view of Ethan, which I like his point of view. Most books like this when they're about witches, excuse me Casters as they liked to be called in this book series, they are from the point of view of the witch, or Caster in this case, and the human is sort of the love interest and off to the side. I liked the fact that it was from the nonmagical person of the book. I've only ever really read books where the person with the supernatural abilities is telling the story. Have you ever read a book that was from the point of view of the nonmagical person? I'm just curious. I think I've read more, but I'm spacing because I've read soooo many books over the years and they're all starting to run together.So Ethan lives in the small town of Gatlin, and he hates it. Everyone knows everyone's business and if you're different you are looked down upon. Ethan is counting the days until he can leave. I know what he feels like, I am counting the days until I can leave my hometown too. He has this map in his room and he has all the places he wants to travel after college marked on the map. He really hates his hometown. He also can't stand some of the people that are living there either. Like his ex-girlfriend Emily Asher. Every time she pops up in the book this is me:
“I never loved you any more than I do, right this second. And I'll never love you any less than I do, right this second.”
“Mortals. I envy you. You think you can change things. Stop the universe. Undo what was done long before you came along. You are such beautiful creatures.”
“Teenagers. Everything is so apocalyptic.”
“So you are a vampire." "I most certainly am not." He looked annoyed. "That's such a common phrase, such a cliche, and so unflattering. I suppose you believe in werewolves and aliens too. I blame television.”
“Old things are better than new things, because they've got stories in them, Ethan.”
“I'll drive like my grandma. I'll drive like your grandma." "You wouldn't say that if you knew my gramma.”
“And have her back by midnight. " "Is that some powerful Caster hour?" "No. It's her curfew. ”
