Rachel, on the other hand, is a character that despite her many many flaws, I can’t hate but don’t exactly love. I feel for her in many ways, but she seems to be a bit self-destructive. Like all self-destructive people she also hurts others as a result. The one thing she seems to have going for her is the fact that she is apparently the most powerful being on the planet though she hasn’t realized the extent of her powers. As destructive as she is, I still like her more than Jace.
It’s not that I don’t like Jace. I feel a bit indifferent about this character. I can see that he will continue to grow as the story develops, but for now, he’s a pretty face, decent brother, and good son.
The action of this book is much more involved, which I didn’t think was possible. Alisa and Bryce struggle to be close yet so far apart. After he speaks the claiming words to her, they crave each other but can’t share each other or live together. Alisa is forgetting what an independent person she used to be and Bryce is clinging to her affection so he won’t turn to the dark side. Yeah, whoa!
Rachel has the best of intentions trying to protect her brother but she has to know that going on dream dates with a demon isn’t going to end well. Plus, there’s more than one demon after her. When, Alisa, the only human in the bunch has to risk her life to save Rachel, things heat up in more ways than one. What a perfect end to this installment and a grand enticement for the next.
I think I enjoyed this one just as much as the first. Highly recommended again.
The second installment starts with a bang - literally - when Re'Vel tries to kidnap Rachel. Though his plans are thwarted he takes something with him that will strengthen his connection to her, a connection she's not willing to let go of yet. She allows him to communicate with her, even though the Alexanders have warned her against it. Concern for her brother, whose magic has been sealed away, and curiosity about a father she didn't really know fuel her, but thanks to her religious upbringing she has still not accepted herself or her magic. Nor has she told her mother the truth, which makes it hard for her protector, Mikael, to protect her.
Now that Bryce has spoken the claiming words to Alisa, pledging his soul to hers, nothing can tear them apart - except his sudden, unreasonable possessive jealousy. As a human, Alisa doesn't understand doesn't understand the intense magic of the claiming words of the desperate need to complete the bond. Will she come to terms with it before it is too late and Bryce is lost to darkness?
As I said, I love this series! As with the first, the writing is fantastic, the pacing is great, and the world building keeps getting better as we learn more about the Spellbringers world. Oh, and Bryce is hot. Rachel's relationship with Re'Vel leaves me torn. I want to hate him, but like her I find myself falling under his spell again and again, so I can't blame her. If I were her I'd have probably already run off with him and been in a lot more trouble!

I will admit that I revelled in everything Alisa had to say, and especially enjoyed her scenes with Bryce – even though I only very slowly understood the dynamic of their relationship. Alisa, though involved directly, took even longer than I did, to understand some of Bryce’s actions.
Actually, I find that Bryce might just be the most interesting character, and definitely the one where it’s necessary to read most between the lines. ..."
