The Graces are the family at the centre of Laure Eve’s story which just so happens to be called The Graces – are they witches or are they lending power to a curse be placing so much belief into it – sort of like a self fulfilling prophecy.
The one thing we’re sure of? Our guide to breaking a fairytale curse might not be the best guide to follow.
This is not the magic of hollywood effects or the awe inspiring magic that comes from wands we see in Harry Potter…

…but we love it oh so very much…
We love that it’s subtle – it’s a belief and it’s the belief that gives it the power
We love that it can be learned and is not totally inherited

We love that it’s not simple and takes dedication
We love that there are different types of Grace ‘witch’

We love that the ‘spells’ can interact with each other
In short we love this kind of magic in our YA, it’s refreshing compliments the undercurrent of the story and it’s quite simply beautiful.
And you can experience it all for yourself when you nab yourself a copy of The Graces.
