The Million Dollar Goal gThe reason I fell in love with this book had to do with the cover and the back blurb both of which reminded me of one of my favorite animated films Kiki s Delivery Service directed by the brilliant Hayao Miyazaki Like Kiki the heroine of this book struggles to find herself sometimes with comic results Most young adult fiction these days tend to be bad pastiches of the orginal bad pastiche Twilight so when I discover those rare books in which there s no heroine fail no mysterious but HAWT boy or the standard and useless love triangle then you have my interest I ve been wondering for a while what the hell has happened to intrepid heroines like Tamora Pierce s Alannah Phillip Pullman s Lyra and othero Securing Caite get emirls who weren t content to let things just happen to them and who often embarked on Trudy grand adventures Sadder still is the fact that the dumbing down of YA heroines isn t being done by men but by women authors whom one would think knew better Bad Spelling brings back the intrepid heroine in all her non perfect yet still active in her own destinylory It is also the first fantasy I ve read in which the cultures of the farthest reaches of Northern Europe Norway Finland Siberia figures prominently while not whitewashing the Asian features of many people who live in these polar regions I especially loved how author Marva Dasef incorporated Norwegian legends into the narrativeThere is also a larger narrative in the book which is intolerance The prologue for Bad Spelling is set in 1490 at the height of the witch hysteria that swept throughout Europe and cost the lives of hundreds of thousands and perhaps an even higher number of innocent women men and children Tears welled in Edyth s eyes What they are doing to us tis hateful Why cannot they just leave us be He took Edyth s shoulders pulling her to his chest Tis not just us The inuisitors condemn many not of the craft They find black magic where it does not exist His eyes darkened Tis the fault of that wretched Heinrich Institoris and his cursed Malleus Maleficarum Even the Church has banned it yet the so called citizen courts use it to condemn any who disagree with them Edyth shook her head her face rim You speak the truth Tis shameful they accuse whoever dissents be they witch or not The few remaining witches and warlocks decide to leave Europe and travel to a remote island called Galdorheim where they can live free and out of sight from those they call mundanes humans without magical ability The island is protected by a magical shield which renders it undetectable and which makes the normally cold land hospitable to humanwitch life Fast forward to present day Galdorheim Kat is a young witch with a BIG problem Her spells even the simplest tend to backfire and usually there s reen The Unlikeliest Hero: The Story of Desmond T.

Ve and take between Kat and the Sami I checked the word lumooja and discovered it s Finnish for witch All of those allusions can simply be accepted as imaginary or they can be used to inspire the interest of young people in the languages of the regionThe premise of the story is set in the Prologue which is laid November 1490 somewhere in Germany Here we learn how it happened that the witches established their colony on the Barents Sea island The author chose to write this prologue in a stilted and phony sounding dialect which I presume is meant to suggest an archaic period something already established in the dateline It s full of sentences like this Why cannot they just leave us be I m afraid tis nothing else we can do which isn t even rammatically correct I m afraid it is nothing else we can do This dialect serves no function because the people in uestion would not have been speaking English at all in 15th century Germany Thus all the uoted dialogue is a translation I found that opener a little off putting but fortunately the Prologue is only one page longBut that s just a minor uibble The book as a whole is very entertaining and educationally suggestive and I heartily recommend it for the appropriate age Confessions of an Air Ambulance Doctor group BAD SPELLING ReviewBy Marva DasefWhat if you re a Wiccan and are supposed to be able to cast spells but everything you try somehow ends up as a catastrophe Can you do something to make your magic work the way it s supposed to Or are you doomed to be a failureIn Author Marva Dasef s middlerade novel BAD SPELLING Katrina s Kat s father Boris died before she was born yet her aunt Thordis talks to him When Kat learns that a shaman cast a spell on her father and that spell is what affects Kat s magic turning it into a disaster as well as possibly spreading from Kat to the whole village of Galdorheim and destroying it she decides to find the shaman and stop him before it s too late Along with her part vampire half brother Rune she sets off to Siberia where her father s family lives hoping to find the answers The teens meet a lot of interesting characters along the way some friendly some scary But they let nothing stop them in their uest Kat is a spunky heroine Rune has a delightful sense of humor I really like the relationship between the siblings They tease each other the way brothers and sisters do Yet they also care for one another and will protect the other when danger threatens Marva Dasef has written a story of adventure excitement and suspense that should appeal to middle rade readers as they follow along with the teens on a journey they ll not soon forget BAD SPELLING would make a nice addition to school classrooms and libraries as well as to your personal library There are two books available in the series The Witches of Galdorheim MIDNIGHT OIL and SCOTCH BROOM Oh do you wonder what the catchy title BAD SPELLING means Being a former teacher kids that can t spell was my first thought What do you think Bad Spelling is an enjoyable read Kat has been a bad speller her whole life and magic simply doesn t seem to be in her enes despite the fact that she lives in a village filled with witches Her brother on the other hand is a highly talented warlock Kat s father whose body is trapped in a lacier is protected by a spell that is beyond the understanding of the witches in Kat s community In order to save the village from exposure to the spell Kat embarks on a save the village from exposure to the spell Kat embarks on a with her brother hoping to find the source of the magic The novel is humorous and imaginative taking the reader through frozen wastelands inhabited by witches and subterranean dwellings that are the domain of trolls Kat is challenged every step of the way and must learn to develop her magic with every obstacle she encounters Kat s brother Rune is one of the highlights of the novel a half vampire who has difficulty reining in his urge for blood Aunt Thordis is another memorable character with a ruff manner and an abrasive personality I wish the main antagonist and his motivations had been described in reater detail as this would have made for a powerful ending Bad Spelling is a light fun read for kids Bad Spelling by Marva DasefMs Dasef has pulled off a bewitching story with charming characters you can t help but fall in love with From Katrina a befuddled young witch to her half brother Rune a vampire warlock cross to the delightful animal friends and trolls Never thought I d ever Call A Troll Delightful Young a troll delightful Young doesn t understand why her magic doesn t work Teachers and students alike think she s a failure but the truth lies with her almost dead father She s been cursed In order to remove the spell and save her family and friends Kat decides it s up to her to find the evil shaman who jinxed her And so begins the fun and incredible journey Ms Dasef takes you on a fantastic trek across ice oceans and northern countries A fun adventure sure to whet your appetite for stories from this author s pen Enjoy Bad Spelling is a tension filled heartwarming and hilarious read As a fan of Harry Potter and Terry Pratchett s books I thoroughly enjoyed Marva Dasef s book She skillfully plays with familiar themes and myths but weaves them into an intriguing and original story Bad Spelling had me laughing out loud several times then the story uickly sucked me right back into its strange and fascinating world of magic well hidden from those dangerous humans with their stakes and pyres Great challenges await a young witch with spelling problems and her half brother a warlock vampire cross breed with his own tribulations while trying to save their enchanted island. Stumbles onto why her magic is out of whack a curse from a Siberian shamanThe young witch accompanied by her half vampire brother must travel to the Hall of the Mountain King and the farthest reaches of Siberia to regain her magic dodging attacks by the shaman along the She attracts the right kind of helpers along the way I like the characterization of the witches the children and the trolls as well as the humans not always typical of fantasy fiction Existing adult relationships drive parts of the story which the children discover as they o on their uest These relationships create conflicts that extend into the rest of the series For one Kat must repay her witch mentor and it remains to be seen what the price will be Pick this one up for your tween or read it yourself It s a breath of arctic fresh air Bad Spelling is a book that continues to cling to my mindThis book held me spellbound if you ll forgive the pun Marva is a wondrously witty author who had me smiling and laughing throughout the whole book But that doesn t really tell you what it s about does it Let me Corps Values: Everything You Need to Know I Learned In the Marines give you a uick sketchKat is a witch only she has trouble using her powers When she discovers that this is due to a spell on her father s frozen corpse she and her half brother Rune set out from their small arctic island to Siberia in order to find the shaman causing the spell and take it off That in a nutshell is what the book is about but those few sentences don t do it justice I immediately connected with Kat and loved her sometimes snarky brother Rune The story kept me reading when I should haveone to bed The excitement and adventure had me lued to the laptop reading on The world Marva created here was exuisite Even something as simple as a never ending ice box or a clock that verbally told the time when you asked Each of the characters was engaging even though I wished bad things upon those who made fun of Kat I can t wait to see the next book and discover whether or not the spell really will put an end to Kat s bad spellingCan I think of a bad thing to say about this book Not really It stands out in my mind as one of the best books I ever devoured I can t wait for the seuel which can t come soon enough for meDon t believe me Try out the book for yourself Bad Spelling is Book One in the Witches of Galdorheim series The bad speller is Kat Katrina older half sister of Rune the young vampire warlock introduced in the series s preuel Spellslinger Kat should be a powerful witch but something stops her spells from working properly Eventually she learns this is because of a spell a Siberian shaman placed over the area in which her mundane non magical father is encased in ice To overcome it she and Rune set off to find her father s family and seek help at the Hall of the Mountain King But the shaman would rather they didn t interfere and sets a few obstacles in their path I enjoyed both the humour and pacing of this book as well as the use of the Scandinavian mythology so often overlooked nowadays It was uite refreshing to find trolls portrayed as something other than dimwits mischief makers or monsters Kat And Rune Are Likeable Characters Rune are likeable characters are the adults they interact with except for that nasty shaman of course I would definitely recommend this as a ood read for tweens and teens interested in magic realms within our modern world Witches wear black and travel everywhere by broomstick right Wrong MS DASEF S WITCHES ARE VERY MUCH OF THE Dasef s witches are very much of the world despite living in the Arctic Snowmobiles and cellphones lie side by side with magic wands and scrying artifacts This is the wonderful story of Kat and her brother Rune as they travel to find Kat s paternal family The story is fast paced and intriguing and surprisingly light hearted Trouble shadows Kat from the moment she is born Her magic always oes wrong and on their travels it seems everything is out to stop them succeeding in their uest I love the way the words flow onward to take us on Kat s travels so that the reader feels the cold the fear and the warmth of family love Well done Ms Dasef I look forward to commenting on the second book in the Witches of Galdorheim Series Bad Spelling is the first volume of the Author S Fantasy Series The s fantasy series The of Galdorheim It s intended for Young Adults although I think children from age 11 up would enjoy it It deals with a colony of European witches who escaped medieval persecution by fleeing to an island in the Barents Sea north of Norway Finland and Russia and using a magic dome to terraform it into normal livable space This region is remote enough to be unfamiliar to the average American and thus can substitute for a constructed world filled with trolls ogres shamans and werewolves The story deals with a female adolescent witch named Kat who can t for the life of her learn how to spell that is cast spells Finding out why and solving the problem is at the heart of the plot which is lively and fast moving although a bit shallow in spots but then in a short YA book one can t expect much psychological probing of character The book is filled with clever word plays comparable to Bad Spelling Chapter titles like Scry Me a River and The Troller Coaster as well as allusions to modern conveniences unexpected in this remote witches world Botox satellite phones and snowmobiles form a considerable part of its charm I ot a particular chuckle from this remark spoken by a troll regarding the snowmobiles That fat elf at the north pole runs a dealership in the off season Gave me a really ood fleet rate I was intrigued by the linguistic elements A poem about a troll from the Eddas of
