Series: Spellbound #2
Author: Cara Lynn Schultz
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
From the Publisher: After breaking a centuries-old romantic curse, Emma Connor is (almost) glad to get back to normal problems. Although…it's not easy dealing with the jealous cliques and gossip that rule her exclusive Upper East Side prep, even for a seventeen-year-old newbie witch. Having the most-wanted boy in school as her eternal soul mate sure helps ease the pain—especially since wealthy, rocker-hot Brendan Salinger is very good at staying irresistibly close….
But something dark and hungry is using Emma's and Brendan's deepest fears to reveal damaging secrets and destroy their trust in each other. And Emma's crash course in überspells may not be enough to keep them safe…or to stop an inhuman force bent on making their unsuspected power its own.
I enjoyed this one just as much as the first one – and my earlier wish came true: this one was definitely heavy on the witchy.
Emma is growing into quite the capable witch who protects those she loves with a ferocity I can’t help but admire.
Brendan is still a huge boy crush for me, but he was a little overbearing and overprotective throughout the story. It’s sweet that he wants to protect Emma, but he really needs to learn and understand that she is strong and can do some things better than he can.
Angelique is my favorite selfless witchy sidekick.
Megan – well she doesn’t deserve any space devoted to her.
The ending reminded me a bit of the end of The Craft (in tone, not in what actually happened) – which is a plus, considering I love that movie.
I’m looking forward to spending more time with these guys, so I hope there are more books coming in the series.
