  • 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. 


Spellcaster picks up shortly after Spellbound, reintroducing the lovers Emma and Brendan, and how they are after breaking the centuries old curse. Brendan and Emma’s feelings for each other was well written, tender and sweet.

In Spellcaster, the pair face a whole new set of trouble as the jealousy rises when it is clear Emma and Brendan are forever, not a passing fling. Plenty of girls want to get their hooks into him and don’t like Emma being in their way.

We get split POVs from Emma and the occasional word from Angelique when Emma is unable to tell us what is going on. Some people may enjoy this different view, but for me it felt like a cop out, the easy road rather than figure out an alternative way around.

While the love between Brendan and Emma felt real enough, it had just a touch of ‘we had no choice in this’ to make me feel uncomfortable, and if I’m being honest, the romance a little bit fake.

There are plenty of good points that will make fans of the first book appreciate this one, and pleased to see Emma and Brendan’s story continue.
