The Sting meets Fight Club in this magical, action-packed sequel to Caster by Elsie Chapman.

Yes, Aza Wu now has magic back. But like all things in her life, it has come at a great cost. After the tournament, Aza is able to pay off her parents’ debt to Saint Willow. Unfortunately, the cost of the gathering spell she used to strip Finch of his magic has put her permanently in the employ of the gang leader. Aza has been doing little errands using real magic — collecting debts, putting the squeeze on new businesses in the district. But that had never been the plan. Saint Willow is nothing if not ambitious and having Aza as a fighter is much more lucrative than as a fixer. Especially if she can control the outcome. Aza is going to have to put it all on the line again to get out of this situation!

About the Tour

The tour for Spell Starter accommodates both book bloggers and booktubers. It is open to both US-based and international creators, with priority being given to Chinese and Asians. Its official hashtag is #SpellStarterTour.

The tour will run from October 5th to October 9th, which falls within the book’s release week. Although book reviews are required for this tour, you are more than welcome to add other creative or promotional content of your preference.

Physical review copies (ARCs) of Spell Starter will be provided for US-based tour hosts, while digital review copies will be distributed among international-based tour hosts through Edelweiss. Either way, your Edelweiss email address will nonetheless be collected. This will serve as a precaution for shipping delays, missing packages, among other issues outside our control. Hence, you must have an Edelweiss account to participate.

Also, it must be noted that Spell Starter is a sequel. If you haven’t read the first book yet, digital galleys of Caster will not be provided by Caffeine Book Tours.

Sign-ups will close within next week, and the selected tour hosts will be contacted via email. The CBT Twitter account will announce once the confirmation emails have been sent out.

For other concerns or inquiries, you are more than welcome to leave a comment!
