A NIGHT OWL REVIEWS BOOK REVIEW | Reviewed by: Inkeddreams
Logan is an average guy, somewhat sheltered, but he knows what he wants in love and life and just hasn’t found it. It’s funny how life can change your views without any notice. From the moment Logan sees Serena, he knows there is something special about her. He knows he wants to be with no one else in his school as much as he wants to be with her. He is even more surprised when he finds that she holds the same feelings for him, but Serena and her sisters have a big secret. They’re witches. When Serena has to reveal herself to Logan, worry that her new boyfriend will not be able to accept what she is, sets in. However this is just the tip of the iceberg.
It seems that the ruling council has plans for Serena and will stop at nothing to get their way. But, they aren’t alone. Serena and her sisters, along with some new and old friends have no intention of giving in without a fight. What’s worse, a demon seems to have taken over the council. Can Serena and Logan’s relationship endure despite the abrupt changes taking place in their lives? Even as powerful as her coven appears to be, can they stand up to a powerful demon and its followers? Can Logan protect not only his new girlfriend, despite her revelation, but also his mom, sister and friends?
Spellbound is the first book in a fabulous series by Samantha Combs. Comb’s has the ability to make one remember falling in love for the first time and all the magic that comes with it. Spellbound itself was a roller coaster of emotion. One moment the characters are just typical teens learning the joy of love at first sight and the next they are in terror of just how bad things can go both in a magical and non-magical world. Comb’s truly has a gift for being able to develop her words into something her readers can envision.
The story itself is told from a first person point of view, but this one differs in that all of the main characters are telling the story, with a fresh perspective from chapter to chapter. At some points, I did have to look back at the beginning of the chapter to see whose point of view I was reading the story from, but this was not a drawback. The story is fast paced and flows fairly evenly considering the change from action to romance at the drop of a hat.
Spellbound had me wanting more before I was even halfway through the book. This one has everything a Paranormal Romance is meant to be. Readers will find a story that will bring them along for the ride and leave them with a smile on their face. Readers might think this is another typical witch story but it really is so much more than that. Readers will be clamoring for more at the turn of the last page, and looking forward to the next book in this magical series!
