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 read the first book, Spellbound, when it was released last year, and really liked it. I was a pretty big fan of the characters, especially Emma, so I was excited when I finally got around to reading Spellcaster. It felt good to get back in there with all the characters to see what they’ve been up to, and find out what kind of trouble was coming their way. You know someone or something just can’t leave Emma and Brendan alone, and has to cause them problems.

Four months have passed since creepy Anthony tried to kill Emma, but failed. Unfortunately, the jerk got away and went into hiding, thanks to his rich daddy. But life goes on for Emma and Brendan, and it’s going pretty good for them. Emma is learning self-defense, both physically and magically; while Brendan is still being his hot self. I love the interaction between those two. I don’t always like lovey-dovey relationships, but they are so cute and playful with each other, that I can’t help but to love them!

Emma and Brendan aren’t the only awesome characters in Spellcaster. I absolutely love Angelique, Cisco, Ashley, and even drunken Jenn. I identified a lot with Angelique, especially with the whole hugging thing. I’m usually not a big hugger unless I’m either a) providing comfort, or b)drunk. And Emma’s little cousin, Ashley, seriously cracked me up with all her innuendos and fishing for sexy-time gossip.

I wasn’t sure what kind of trouble was going to invade their lives, but I knew it was going to put them to the test. I don’t want to say who or what the danger is, but I will say that the song Crazy B—h by BuckCherry kept playing in my head during those scenes.

Overall, Cara didn’t let me down; I was pleased with Spellcaster. If you haven’t started this series, you should; both books are quick, fun reads.

    It seems like most people have been pleased with this book. I haven't read the first one yet but this sounds like a promising sequel. Great review! 🙂

  2. I liked the second better than the first. I agree the relationship between Emma and Brendan is great. Love Ashley and her provacative comments and Cisco is great, just he was more prominent. Overall a good read. I am now anxious for your move because your blog repeatedly eats my comments 🙁
