Review: Spellbound - Cara Lynn Shultz

Reviewer: Justine
Rating: 5 out of 5 Fairies

Miss Shultz had me just as her title promised, Spellbound. Cara Lynn Shultz gave us a beautifully written and timeless YA read. 
I sent the following message to Bex upon finishing: 
"Just finished, it was fantastic! Think cursed modern day Romeo and Juliet who relive their tragedy over and over as reincarnated soul-mates, with a slice of witchyness on the side."
She responded that it sounded tragic. I guess it very well COULD have followed that line, but Cara was able to balance the heavy and sad storyline with enough wit, humor and action to prevent just that.

That leaves The Ending, which was amazing, action packed, and left me with my favorite book feeling, ‘concluded’. With of course an opening for more!

I am picky (shut up Bex and let me finish) …… with my ratings, I was going to give Spellbound a 4.5 due to overwhelming awesomeness, but as I write this review, I find myself wanting to reread it all over again. So seeing as that is the only way you get a 5 out of me, congrats to Miss Shultz, you get a very well earned:

5 from this Fickle Fairy

What's a girl to do when meeting The One means she's cursed to die a horrible death?

Life hasn't been easy on sixteen-year-old Emma Connor, so a new start in New York may be just the change she needs. But the posh Upper East Side prep school she has to attend? Not so much. Friendly faces are few and far between, except for one that she's irresistibly drawn to— Brendan Salinger, the guy with the rock-star good looks and the richest kid in school, who might just be her very own white knight.

But even when Brendan inexplicably turns cold, Emma can't stop staring. Ever since she laid eyes on him, strange things have been happening. Streetlamps go out wherever she walks, and Emma's been having the oddest dreams: visions of herself in past lives— visions that warn her to stay away from Brendan. Or else.
