The Magic of Spellbound

Spellbound, by Cara Lynn Shultz, magically transported me off the airplane I was riding earlier this week and into the world of Emma, a high school girl with a tragic past. Emma's trying to leave a tragic past behind her when she falls in love with her soulmate. Unfortunately, an ancient curse has other plans for Emma.

The teens in this book are believable. The mean girl is evil in all the right ways, but there's a glimmer of reality there too. The little cousin, the dangerous boy, the school witch and the concerned aunt all connect with Emma in ways that flow into a beautiful story.

The story is held together by a crest on a necklace that Emma was given by her dead brother shortly before he died. The crest marks her as a soul mate in a love triangle that's one thousand years old. Emma battles high school rumors, near death experiences and her own fear to claim the love she's waited for all her life.

There are still a few mysteries yet to solve in the end, which left me excited about the next book in the series. Don't miss your chance to read this one now!
