Finding your eternal soulmate - easy.
Stopping a true-love-hungry evil - not so much…
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 sixteen-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 and Brendan's deepest fears to reveal damaging secrets and destroy their trust in each other. And Emma's crash course in über-spells may not be enough to keep them safe…or to stop an inhuman force bent on making their unsuspected power its own. (Goodreads)
After Emma and Brenden broke the curse to their eternal love in the previous book, you would think that like would be getting back to normal for them in this sequel. That’s not exactly the case, however. Something dark and sinister is lying in wait, determined to destroy the loving couple. It’s up to Emma, and her newfound power, to keep them both safe.
I really enjoy the main characters in this book. Emma is well on her way to becoming a really awesome witch. I love watching her become more sure of herself, and much more determined as well. Brenden is such a loving boyfriend, I love that he’s willing to do anything to keep Emma safe. Their relationship is such a sweet one. As in the previous book, I really adore Emma’s best friend, Angelique. She’s quite the little witch herself, and I would love reading the parts of the book where she was included.
Spellcaster was very well paced, and included lots of action and suspense. The ‘bad guy’ in the book was definitely an evil character; I kept waiting to see what would happen next. There was also a LOT of hilarious parts in the book. More than once I found myself laughing at a line I had just read. I love a book that can make me laugh.
Overall, this was a great sequel to Spellbound. The kick-butt characters, funny moments, engrossing plot all come together to make a very intense read! I loved it, and can’t wait to read more from this Mrs. Shultz!
