Summary from Goodreads:
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.

My review:


Cover:
I love the dark background and the eery feeling! I also really adore the font of 'Spellcaster' and how the girl seems to be running away from something! Gives a sense of mysterious feeling!


4 Forget-me-not flowers for the cover!
Story:

Does finding true love means the end of everything?

Spellcaster continues where Spellbound left off. Emma and Brendan are finally together but that is not the end. Vince Academy's cliques are definitely not happy for them and there's something evil coming in their way. As Emma continues to train herself as a witch, finally embracing her powers, can she fight the evil and protect the true love between her and Brendan?

I'm really glad that Shultz decided to make a sequel for Spellbound! I really enjoyed reading the first book and the way things ended was good so I never thought there would be a sequel! Needless to say, I'm really happy we get to read more Emma and Brendan!

Now to the story, I find the plot a bit quite similar to Spellbound, although instead of the building relationship between Emma and Brendan, this time it's both of them trying to maintain their newly found relationship. We also have a new villain and Emma has returned with some kick-ass powers instead of just being your-average-teenager back in Spellbound. I really enjoy Emma's and Brendan's relationship, the way they struggle to keep each other safe, how Emma is not a powerless character and how we also get to read a little bit from Angelique's perspective! Even though the plot felt quite similar to Spellbound, I still enjoyed reading it and I love the way things ended in this book too!

Characters:
Emma has become a strong character by developing her witchcraft and powers. The way she developed into a strong character and her ability to protect Brendan and the ones she care about was amazing! Brendan was well, just awesome. He truly loves Emma and will do anything for her. This really shows how their true love is very powerful and fierce. I wasn't really intrigued with Angelique in the first book but she has become such an interesting character because some of the chapters are written from Angelique's POV and it makes me understand more about her and what's going on in her head! I was really able to connect to the characters and although sometimes I got a bit worried about Emma (the way she over-used her powers and the way she almost got overboard in dealing with the new villain), they were written very well!

Overall:
In Spellbound, readers were introduced to a new world of magic and an enthralling story of true love. In Spellcaster, readers will be taken to a journey of Emma and Brendan's trial of their true love and it is another enthralling story readers will enjoy after reading Spellbound. Spellbound fans, get ready to read more Brendan, because he is still awesome all the way through Spellcaster!

4 Forget-me-not flowers for Spellcaster!
Have you read Spellbound? What did you think of it? Are you excited for Spellcaster?

    Awesome review Celine!! I cannot wait to see things from Angelique's POV--I loved that gal in the first book. Looking forward to more Brendan too ;)

  4. My name is vadrice Michell, and I base in Canada...My life is back!!! After 2 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr okoduwa, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Joan,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr okoduwa's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr okoduwa, is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man... If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems for you. Try great spell caster anytime, he might be the answer to your problems, if you are facing such issue Here's his contact: drokoduwalovespelltemple@gmail.com

  5. Hello, my name is Miss faith, I'm from USA. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is genuine and real. I never really believed in any of these things but when I was losing Garvin, I needed help and somewhere to turn badly. I found consultant.odia spells and i ordered a LOVE SPELL. Several days later, my phone rang. Garvin was his old self again and wanted to come back to me! Not only come back, the spell caster opened him up to how much I loved and needed him. Spell Casting isn't brainwashing, but they opened his eyes to how much we have to share together. I recommend anyone who is in my old situation to try it. It will bring you a wonderful surprises as well as your lover back to you. The way things were meant to be." you can contact the spell caster on ogbonispelitemple@hotmail.com he's very nice and great.
