Product Description

Gracyn Pierce is starting over. She has a new home, a new boyfriend, and a new horse. Everything is perfect, or so it seems. Because Gracyn left a secret behind. In her quest to erase the memory of that stormy night, she forces herself to study hard, her sights set on an Ivy League college.

But her attempts to stay focused are derailed when the neighbor suspected of murdering his sister returns to town. As if that isn’t enough, her senses begin to change in ways that aren’t physically possible. As hard as she tries to find an explanation, there isn’t one.

Gracyn soon learns that things are not what they appear to be. Even her sister who took her in is hiding something. Will Gracyn continue pursuing her goal of getting accepted to a top-notch university, or will the secrets of the past and present ruin her future?

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars for slightly mixed feelings, but a good read overall 4 October 2016
By A. Miller (R Antoinette) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Gracyn Pierce is starting over; new home, new school, new town…and new problems. She thought everything would be perfect, and her first few days do seem to be just that, but memories of what she left behind in Bethesda continue to surface. In her quest to forget, she throws herself into her schoolwork, her sights set on an Ivy League college.

Her attempts to stay focused are derailed when the neighbor suspected of murdering his sister returns to town. Not only that, but he’ll be sitting right next to her in art class. As if that isn’t stressful enough, Gracyn begins to change in ways that shouldn’t be possible and there seems to be no explanation. It doesn’t take her long to learn that things in Sedgewick are not what they seem to be and even the sister who opened her home has secrets.
Should Gracyn continue to pursue her goal of getting accepted to MIT or will the secrets plaguing her past and stalking her present ruin her future?

3.5 Stars (I wish Amazon allowed half star ratings!)
This book was ok, but I found myself starting to skim after about the fourth chapter up until Lucian found Gracyn in the woods (Chapter 19) with only a few stops along the way. There were a number of reasons for this, not the least of which was Ms. Royston’s insistence on repeating the same pieces of information every other paragraph. I didn’t feel the need to be so continually reminded that 1) Gracyn had a bad experience with horses when she was a child and 2) Sam’s stepdad did something awful. My struggle to get and stay immersed in the story made the occasional editorial issue that much more distracting and I feel that Gypsy Magic would benefit from another round of editing. I came across a number of passages where the wrong word is used; kitchens have alcoves, not enclaves and pitchforks have tines, not spokes. Oddities like that tend to catch my attention more and more lately.
If you’ve read any of my other reviews, you know that strong, well-developed, complex characters make or break a story for me. In this case, I was a little disappointed. I felt fairly indifferent towards Gracyn for most of this book and I found her hard to relate to a lot of the time. She jumps to weird, irrational conclusions and is reluctant to talk about the simplest things. Her reactions also feel out of proportion to the event she is reacting to and that started to grate on me after awhile. (She did get better as the story progressed, though.)
That being said, this is the first book in a trilogy and very much devoted to the setup of place, time, and players. And in spite of my struggle to like Gracyn, I did like the other teens quite a bit. I think Celeste was my favorite; she reminded my quite a bit of a friend I had in college whom I love dearly. I was intrigued by Lucian from the jump and I’m curious to see where things go with him in the next two books. Also, even though ‘magic’ is part of the title, the way it manifested was pleasantly unexpected.
With the world-building out of the way, I have high hopes for the remaining two books, especially considering how Gypsy Magic ended! After devouring one novel after another since I was a very young child, I’ve become fairly adept at predicting plot outcomes. I typically know what’s about to happen, who did the deed, and who’s going to save the day. Not this time, and that was refreshing.
Bottom line: While I feel this book struggled to get off the ground, it’s a promising start to an interesting YA series. I’d recommend this for anyone who loves to see the intricate development of relationships—both person-to-person and between people and animals—and also for anyone who loves a good plot twist. I will definitely be watching for Book 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bring on book 2 2 October 2016
By Mindyg123 (Romance Authors That Rock ) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Usually I'm not much into YA but this book is different from the norm. I couldn't put it down. Gracyn Pierce moves in with the sister she didn't know she had till she was 15 and starts her senior year at a new high school. Yes there's the typical teenage problems but there's so much more. The storyline and characters kept me reading and the twist at the end between Gracyn and her sister Becca, wow! This is a great YA , trust me you wont be disappointed.This book ended at the perfect spot, leaving me wanting to learn more about the people of this little town, I feel book 1 just scratched the surface. Ms. Royston is definitely an author to watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a Wonderful Beginning to a Great New Trilogy! 13 October 2016
By Heidi N. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Eighteen-year-old Gracyn pierce has decided to live with her half-sister, Becca, while her mom takes a new job in Russia. Moving from city life in Maryland to small town life in Sedgewick has proven to be drastically different. In many ways, this can be a fresh start for Gracyn. Making new friends. Living the country life. Having cute boys interested in her.

However, in other ways things are not so great. Horses, which deeply frightens Gracyn, live on the land. Her next door neighbor is accused of the murder that took place two years prior. The strangest of all is when unusual, and unexplainable, things begin to happen to Gracyn. The question lies – will Gracyn continue on the path to a great college or will the untold secrets prevent her from pursuing her dream?

I will admit, the cover drew me in. It’s beautiful and I love that there is a clear connection between Gracyn and a horse (later we learn she is named Gypsy). It’s sweet and inviting.Towards the beginning of the novel, I wasn’t sure how much I would enjoy reading it. For one main reason, I felt Gracyn’s thoughts were very repetitive. She seemed to be constantly worried about what her new guy interest would think of her if he finds out that she was smart. Since he was in a rock band, it worried her that he would lose interest quickly. This could easily be explained by this character’s age and immaturity level. Then, there were times when her worries were repeated several times. However, even with this, Gracyn is a likable character, along with her sister, Becca.

The story began to pick up once the next door neighbor, Lucian, came into play. His character, though can be creepy at times, is alluring. There was something about him that had me hooked, and I loved reading every scene that he was included. Though never committed to the crime, many believe Lucian had murdered his own sister. With this, the author cleverly adds an air of mystery to the text since the case still has not been solved even though two years has passed.

Though Ms. Royston did give several hints along the way, the reader doesn’t truly find out what makes Gracyn so different from her peers until towards the end of the book. I liked the slow buildup because so often the protagonists in paranormal reads are thrown into an unnatural world towards the beginning. Sometimes, it feels too rushed for me. I preferred getting to know Gracyn some before being introduced to her uniqueness.

I would recommend this read to those who enjoy Young Adult reads. Also, to those who enjoy a slow buildup on the paranormal aspect of the book.

Tonya Royston has done it again! I'm not usually a YA reader but after reading her Sunset Trilogy, I was very interested to see what she would write next. I dove in and bought all three books of the second Trilogy without even reading the blurb. I like surprises, and in this east coast town of Sedgwick,there are a lot of twists and turns. I give it 5 stars. It reads like a movie for all ages. Fantastic and I can't wait to see what happens next. Keep your eye on this author. Everything she writes is like book candy.
