Summary: 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.
Review: Can I just say how cute this series is? There's a ton of evil things going on but for me the romance is what takes center stage in these books.
Emma and Brendan face a lot of scary things in this book. The villain in this book is bad that you'll find yourself rooting for Emma to win against the villain, no matter what. Other then the romance I loved the spell and witch aspect to Spellcaster. The things that Emma can do are pretty darn awesome. She's definitely one powerful girl!
Brendan and Emma are basically adorable. There was quite a bit of time spent on just them and their bonding in Spellcaster, and boy was it cute! It didn't take away from the plot that much but I would have liked to have seen more of a solid plot in this one. Yes, I liked the villain but it wasn't as exciting as I would have expected. But on a good note there were two chapters in Angelique's narration! Emma's best friend is just so awesome which I love in YA.
One thing Spellcaster truly succeeds in is the "laugh factor." I was constantly smiling and laughing during many parts of this book (they usually involved Brendan). Schultz definitely did well on keeping the story light but darker when it needed to be.
Spellcaster is a great sequel to Spellbound. It'd be a good last book in the series, but if there are more coming I'd definitely be willing to read them. If you're a fan of romance, witches and other related things then picking up this series is something I'd seriously recommend!
