HOLD TIGHT does not disappoint. Cherie Colyer does a wonderful job in Book 2 of this series, introducing new characters and keeping both the action and tension running full steam ahead. I love this author's writing style, and her exclusive use of Madison's first person POV. Book 2 stays YA while ratcheting up the stakes in her life and the lives of those she cares for.
The book begins about a month after the end of the first book, EMBRACE. Madison has fully accepted her witchy powers, but still has problems kissing her boyfriend, Isaac. Like a "built-in parental control," their liplocks always end with powers colliding and electric shocks (not the good kind, either.)
The catalyst for this next adventure is Madison's curiosity, when she attempts to use a summoning spell to get a fairy to help with her housework and chores. Big mistake. The fae don't give favors for free, especially when one of the fairies you summon has a gripe with the boy you love.
Now Madison has to figure out how to send the Fae Prince of the Winter Court back to his world before he and Isaac battle over her. Throw in a crossroad demon and a Fae Princess of the Summer Court and Madison has enough trouble to keep her busy for the rest of junior year.
It comes to a head when her brother Chase in injured and only magic can save him...but choosing which magic will change Madison's life forever.
If you haven't read the first book in this series, I would recommend reading that first. And then grab this one in quick succession. The author is still at work on Book 3 - and I'm totally looking forward to reading and reviewing that one as well!
I'm glad she added the sequel, "Hold Tight" with Madison, Isaac, and their friends.
In Hold Tight Madison is still learning about her powers, she makes mistakes, and acts her age, which to me makes her character very believable. You expect Isaac to be strong and Cherie delivers. Cherie builds on Madison and Isaac's romance adding continuity with her first novel and building on their tender and loving romance. Her new characters Caden and Reed expand the story line without taking away from the main characters.
This is a fantastic YA paranormal romance.
'Hold Tight' is the second installment in an exciting young adult paranormal series that continues to follow leading lady Madison as she continues to learn about her magical powers and how to use them properly. With the help of her boyfriend, Isaac, and her other magical friends, things are starting to get easier for Madison and her magic. Lured by the prospect of summoning faeries to do her bidding, Madison unknowingly opens the doorway for two interesting yet dangerous beings into her world. Soon after completing the spell, one of Madison's friends goes missing and it doesn't take very long for Madison to realize who the next target is. The only problem now is to figure out which of the two beings to trust in and how to thrust the other back into the realm it came from - all before things go very wrong for Madison and those she loves.
This was a fantastic second novel in a YA paranormal series that continues to wow me. I love any type of fiction that deals with witches and magic, and this book certainly did not disappoint. It's full of various types of magic, supernatural beings, and spells - both good and bad - and I loved learning as much about all of it as I could. Madison is a great main character for the series. She's smart, strong, brave, and completely devoted to her friends and family. She's also vulnerable and scared - and definitely having issues controlling her magical abilities. I loved watching her character continue to mature and grow throughout the book as she learns to deal with consequences to her actions as well as normal life problems. There is some romance in the book; but I didn't feel like it was too corny or overshadowed the main plot at all. It seemed like just the right amount and I liked seeing Madison and Isaac's relationship grow. The plot was really fascinating for me - I loved every bit of it. Like I mentioned earlier, it deals a lot with magic, spells, and supernatural beings - but there's also a bit of a mystery woven into the story when Madison's friend goes missing. She has to figure out what happened to her, who's responsible, and how to stop them. I enjoyed trying to figure out what might really be going on, but there were definitely some twists and turns that I didn't see coming - and they added some great layers to the story line. The writing was fast paced and thrilling with lots of adventure, action, mystery, and romance. I'm already eagerly awaiting the next installment in the series to see what Madison will get into next. I definitely recommend this book and the series to fans of YA paranormal fiction and those who enjoy fantasy and supernatural books as well.
