Spellcaster is the second book in the Spellbound series by Cara Lynn Shcultz.
I started reading this as soon as I finished the first book Spellbound, I really fell hard for this series and it's amazing characters.
The Spellbound world is a mix of Gossip Girl and magic. Two of my favourite things! I'll admit I've been hooked on this series from page one, and Emma and Brendan's roller-coaster relationship only adds to the drama in this book.
This time around someone is out to hurt Emma and use her blood for their own freaky spell. Time is ticking away fast, and it is up to the group of friends to figure out who is behind all these attacks and stop them before it's too late.
In Spellcaster we get to see a bit more of the characters we were introduced to in Spellbound. This time around we are seeing more of what makes them tick and who they really are. I really liked getting to know more about the history of Emma and Brendan's curse and more about their past lives as they slowly start to remember bits and pieces.
I enjoy knowing the characters I'm reading about inside and out, so for me this was a great addition to the main story line.
Plot wise, there was a few unexpected twists and turns in the book. I wasn't completely shocked at them though, which is probably the only reason this book got a 4 star rating instead of 5.
Those "oh my gosh" moments you get when reading, just wasn't there in this book for me.
However the plot twists were still really good, I've just read better in the past.
Overall I really did love this book, and this series so far.
I'm really looking forward to reading more about Emma in the future. I will definitely be sticking with this series!
