About the Author

Elizabeth Mueller knew that books couldn’t bite, but even though she never admitted, she was scared of them. What she didn’t know, ironically, was that she was building her way toward a career in books. She started writing poetry when she was 9, and stories when she was 11 that make her laugh now. It wasn’t until her creative writing teacher in 12th grade made her realize there was more to writing than life. That’s when she fell in love with books. She hasn’t stopped since, feverishly working to perfect the craft late into the night. She lives with her husband, four kids, a wolfdog, and two cats. Darkspell is her first novel.

More About the Author

Elizabeth Mueller, author and illustrator, knew that books couldn't bite and though she never admitted, she was scared of them. What she didn't know was that one day books would take over her life and turn her into a writer.

She started writing poetry when she was 9. Then there were stories when she was 11 that, well, are quite funny from her current perspective. It was her creative writing teacher in 12th grade that made her realize there was more to writing than life itself. That's when she fell in love with books because, unlike real life, books whisk her away into different worlds, different times, and even turn her into different people--especially when she's the one who is writing them!

She hasn't stopped since, feverishly working to perfect the craft late into the night. She lives with her husband, five kids, a hyper dog, four cats, a turtle and a fish. Darkspell, a young adult Paranormal Romance, is her first novel.

Darkspell doesn't fit into a typical YA genre box. As a matter of fact, it's one of the most original books I've read this year. A richly woven drama unfolds as young Winter Sky meets two handsome and mysterious neighbors, both fighting for her affection. But one boy, the boy of her dreams--literally-- has already won her heart. But in short order her life is turned upside down as she enters the Stormhold world, a coven of powerful magic users (I'm hesitant to use the word witch/wizard here. This is really something very different.) where she is being hunted by the Shadoweaver. Suddenly everything is in jeopardy as she searches for her gift and fights to keep the boy she loves.

Elizabeth Mueller gives a great story, full of normal teen angst without tipping the scales to be annoying, she keeps us guessing, dropping nuggets for us throughout the story, but never tipping her hand. Combine that with the fantastic use of illustrations that give it almost a graphic novel feel as we read, and this is easily a five star read. I can't wait to pick this up in paperback and you should too! Mueller is a great addition to the YA world and I can't wait to see what comes next from this talented writer!

Format: Paperback
Darkspell is a paranormal, young adult romance, very different from many of the typical vampire or werewolf books. This book does have everything to do with very powerful magick practiced by a coven. At first I thought this book was about witches, but it is not. I will not go into details about the particulars of the magick, but you will like the unique magick that is found in this story.

The story centers around main character Winter and two handsome brothers, Alex and Jareth. The love triangle is alive and flourishing in this book. Winter keeps bouncing back and forth with her affection between the brothers. Personally, I really liked both brothers,though their personalities are very different.But ummm, yeah, Alex favorite! This is a very character driven book, which I tend to really like regardless of the genre.

The very beginning of the book is dedicated to character development, but when the plot starts unfolding you are in for a fun ride. There are many times that you will be very surprised by what happens. Yes, I am being evasive because I want you to read this great YA book for yourself. Another awesome aspect about Darkspell, is the art work found in the novel. Elizabeth is a phenomenal artist!

Darkspell was a combination of humor, angst, spookiness, and romance. It truly kept me guessing until the end. will be anxious to read the next book in the series. You knew that was coming right?

Format: Kindle Edition
In the summer before her senior year, Winter meets the guy of whom she had recently been having some extremely vivid dreams. Not only is he her dream guy but she falls head over heels in love with him almost instantly. To complicate matters, Alex's brother, Jareth, is equally handsome and determined to win Winter from his younger sibling. While all this romantic confusion is going on, weird things start happening to Winter. These weird and scary things - shadows coming at her in the night and strange feelings of weakness overcoming her at times when she is with one or the other of the brothers - very obviously has something to do with said brothers. When a whole bunch of extended family members descend on Stormhold Manner however, Winter's life is about to change forever.

Darkspell was an interesting and at times thoroughly scary, as well as suspenseful, read. Personally I found it a little slow paced but if this is to become a series it is a good way of taking time to do some world building and to get the key characters firmly established. The characters were well crafted and so well described that I could see them in my imagination. Winter, the main character, was, according to my personal tastes far too hung up on just being loved, hugged and kissed by Alex while her very life was in danger. I really don't like female main characters being portrayed as weak or as victims needing to turn to their male counterparts to take care of them. Fortunately Winter does grow somewhat throughout the story and definitely becomes a little more self-sufficient. Another redeeming factor is that she is still mourning her father, whose death was under dubious circumstances.

Towards the end the story really picks up speed and for the final third of the book I simply could not put it down. If a fairly slow developing paranormal romance with a high powered, if slightly undecided ending, is your taste, Darkspell is definitely the book for you. (Ellen Fritz)

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Darkspell is a YA paranormal novel with a promising story line. Unfortunately I just couldn't get into it. The first third of the book I was so confused, just as confused as the main character, Winter. I had a hard time following the story line because as the reader you never got more information than the protagonist and well, she was pretty perplexed about Alex, Jareth and their family. It does get better, you learn more about the characters, what they really are, what their stories are, etc., but in the beginning it's rather frustrating.

Winter, the main female character, was not a character I fell in love with. She is a disaster magnet. If anything can go wrong/bad, it does when she's around. She's the ultimate damsel in distress. I prefer stronger more capable female leads personally, not ones who constantly need rescuing. Also, she's very sexualized - all the boys look at her and rake her up and down with their eyes, she gets in nasty situations with boys a few times. I mean really, how many times can one teen girl almost get raped? A bit disturbing. Also, Winter claims to love Alex but then she's always getting mad at him and acting cruel towards him, only to change her mind and claim she can't live without him, then go and hurt him again. She's just not very likable unfortunately.

The last 25% of the book did a good job in bringing some excitement to the storyline and redemption to Winter's character, but it was a long wait. I really, really wanted to like this book and I'm sure in future endeavor's Ms. Mueller will have worked out a lot of the kinks found in this novel. I do look forward to reading more from her in the future, her storytelling does show a lot of promise. It just didn't hit the nail on the head this time around. WaAr
