Review- Spellbound by Samantha Combs

Title- Spellbound
Author- Samantha Combs
Released- 13th June 2011
Publisher- Astraea Press
Genre- YA, Paranormal/Fantasy
Blurb- Logan Daniels has always led a sheltered life in sleepy, predictable Lancaster, New Hampshire. But when beautiful Serena suddenly appears at school one day, his comfortable existence becomes anything but as he finds himself falling in love with her. There's something special about Serena Starr. He realizes what it is when he sees her unleash her spells. Soon, a mysterious and foreboding presence settles over his placid home.
Logan and Serena find themselves battling darkness and evil with an ominous mission: it wants Serena and will stop at nothing to have her. Tearing apart Logan's town, threatening his friends, even causing harm to his family, the demon will spread its doom over every facet of Logan's once placid life. Logan matures in ways he could never have imagined as he struggles to protect those he loves, including Serena. But he can't do it alone.
Serena hails from a long line of able and powerful women who will aide in the battle and perhaps settle a score of their own. The strength of the coven and Serena's love will be behind him, but ultimately this is Logan's fight to win. But, will he?

Review- What a fast paced, energetic, fun read. Combs captured my attention from the first paragraph. Her intense attention to detail is extraordinary. What I loved most about the book was how Combs did the chapters from different characters perspectives, I got to see all points of view of the story which I really enjoyed. Combs had a lot happening in such a short period of time but she managed to keep the story flowing without making it seem rushed. The relationships that formed in Spellbound were in themselves fast paced. I think Combs was spot on with how intense and full on teenage relationships can be, especially in the relationships between Logan and Serena and Dave and Tamera. The paranormal side of Spellbound was really fascinating. Witches, Shapeshifting Demons and Trolls made for one exciting battle between good and evil.
There isn't really much more to say about Spellbound without giving too much away. So I will leave you with a strong recommendation to give Spellbound a read. It will be well worth it.

  1. What a great review Naykate! I love a good witch tale but the relationships can sometimes sound more unbelievable than the magick. That said, fast paced does not have to contrived, as you pointed out. I've been on the fence with this book and your article just pushed me over to the "buy" side. Thanks!
