Spell Fire (Teen Wytche Saga #3) by Ariella Moon, Book Review, Blog Tour & Giveaway!!!

Teen Wytche Saga 

                                                  The Teen Wytche Saga by Ariella Moon

 Think magic will solve your problems? Bring you love? Cure you? Protect you? Help you find someone who is lost? Think again. Magic tests friendships. It hisses, chirps, stinks up the room, backfires, and explodes. Magic forces you to make tough decisions. Shatter limitations. Discover your true self. When you use magic, expect results in the ultimate triple-un—unpredictable, uncontrollable, and so undeniable. And you thought navigating high school was tough.


 My Review:

Spell Fire is book three in the Teen Wytche series and it took me by complete surprise!  It wasn't as directly related to the first two books as I thought it would be, but the connections were there, just not as close as I thought they would be!  Spell Fire is about Ainslee who developed OCD and anxiety ever since her best friend disappeared in middle school.  Her parents are on the brink of divorce and she feels like she cannot control anything in her life.  When her parents decide to take a sudden second honeymoon, Ainslee finds herself thrust into the lives of her Aunt and Uncle whom she hasn't seen since she was three.  The time spent with them turns out to mean more than she ever thought it would!  What started out as being dumped for Christmas break turns into an unbelievable time for Ainslee!  Take a journey with Ainslee as she battles herself:  her emotions, her OCD, her lack of control!  I was amazed at the accuracy with which Moon writes about a person with OCD.  This is a fun and magical YA book that I recommend to any fantasy and paranormal readers!

    Thank you for your wonderful, heartfelt reviews of Spell Check, Spell Struck, and Spell Fire, the first three books in the Teen Wytche Saga. I am so glad you enjoyed my books! I look forward to you posting your reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, and Barnes and Noble. Reviews are SO important. Thank you for taking the time to read, review, and post.

    I have some great news! Just last night I signed the contract with Astraea Press for the fourth book in the Saga, Spell for Sophia. This is my most complex book yet. Evie, Salem, Aidan, Yemaya, and Ainslie return. You'll discover what happened to Sophia, and just how far Ainslie will go to help her. Prepare to time travel!
    Happy reading,
    Ariella Moon

  2. Thank you for stopping by! I really appreciate it! I look forward to the fourth book and discovering all of the secrets surrounding Sophia's disappearance! Thanks for sharing your books with me!

  3. Hi Crystal.
    Thank you for posting your reviews on Amazon! You are awesome!
    Spell For Sophia has a projected November 2014 release date. Yikes! I've got a lot to do before then. I'm sure you'll be super busy around the holidays, but if you have time and the interest, I'd love to send you an advanced pdf of Spell For Sophia once it has been edited. Your honest review is always appreciated.
    All the best,
