Under A Spell by Hannah Jayne
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Admittedly, I have not read any of the other books in this series, so that put me at a slight disadvantage when it came to backstory and overarching storylines. That being said, this book was a lot of fun to read. I’m sure I’m missing a lot of history, but the Will/Sophie/Alex drama really grabbed my attention. I was hoping that there would be some resolution (or at least some payoff of the smutty variety), but that wasn’t really what this book was about.
This book was about a lot of high school drama and mostly metaphorical demons. The setting was high school in a world that appears to be similar to Kim Harrison’s world (minus the tomato problem). There are witches and vampires and fallen angels in the open, or at least in the open for the main character. Sophie was a great main character, complete with flaws and man drama. The banter between her and Will was amazing and made the pages fly by. The mystery wasn’t too hard to solve, but still kept the story interesting. I’d be interested to see if this series is a “1 crime solved per book” type, or if it deviates and goes in different directions along the way.
I’ll definitely keep this author in mind and maybe even go back to check out the books I missed out on (there was a lot of mention of Will and Alex unclothed, so that might be worth it).
