Though I wasn't altogether sure about the insta-love thing at first (as a usually tend to shy away from such ridiculousness) Portia and Vance helped me get over any lingering doubts with the pure love they had for one another. Never did it seem forced and its honest, open, and vulnerable completeness torn at my heart and made it bleed with girly adoration.
If you are looking for a romance-type fictional book (which I wasn't, but I'm not complaining), then pick up "The Trouble with Spells" ASAP!! You will not be disappointed. Though, if you were looking for action (which I kind of was, but again NOT COMPLAINING) then this book may not be for you. Until the last few chapters, the only thing of consequence were a nightmare, brief encounter with a demon, a near accident, and some rumored sightings of possible malicious beings.
Overall, I think the crowd this will most appeal to are young teen women. Let's face it, there's just too much mushy-lovey-dovey-ness and not enough action to balance it all out for any other age or gender group.
First the good. It’s a great story. I felt an emotional attachment to the characters. It was a book I read really quickly and enjoyed and wanted to finish. It contains some unique paranormal elements that were interesting.
Now the not so good. The editing of this book is terrible, it’s full of mistakes. I’m not a great writer and only a so-so editor but I could have kept my red pen busy on this book.
The potential for a fabulous book was there with the storyline. The book moved along at a fast pace but this meant sometimes the writing was rushed and there wasn’t enough character and story development. Things just happened and were accepted way too fast.
A few things felt like they were lifted right out of Twilight – Vance saying Portia is like a drug to him, Vance sleeping in bed with Portia every night.
And then it ended with little resolution as a set up for the second book.
That said the book was entertaining and a quick read so I will read the sequel if I can find it at the library or from a friend.
Content: This is a fairly clean read. There is no language and little innuendo. My main problem is the issue of Vance spending his nights spooning with Portia. I could believe 100+ year old, animal blood drinking Edward might have enough control to resist going too far with Bella but I don’t think it’s a story element that should be repeated in other books. I doubt any other man, human or otherwise, could show such control.
Rating: 3.5 Stars
EDITED: The editing errors in the copy I read have since been corrected.
“I wondered if everyone in love felt like this. Was this ever-present, hot, sizzling fire running through my veins normal?”
“Sometimes it’s like my life is just beginning. It’s a new awakening for me. Even when I knew you were the one for me, I had no idea it would be this strong.” He ran his thumb over my lips. “It’s not only the physical part of it either. It’s everything. I don’t know, it’s like I was only halfway living before now.”
“I do love you, more than you can comprehend right now,” I tried to explain. “That’s why I’m doing this.”
“I promise to always keep you pure,
And never into evil lure.”
Man..... This series is epic! Having already read Of Fire and Ice I knew it was going to spectacular!
Portia and Vance are a couple for the ages!
Portia handles everything that comes her way easily. Finding out she's a witch and then finding Lance. That can put any girl through a loop but she's takes it makes it her own.
Vance has been on the run his whole life but, when he sees Portia he waits 2 yrs for her to become 16 and there is no way he's running again but, when his crazy father comes for him things get crazy!
This author is amazing, her wold is fabulous, her characters are characters you can love and fight for! The storyline is one I LOVE!!! Vance is vastly approaching the top of I want this character list!!! Of too read book 2
