You are thrown into the action, and the bombs keep on dropping. I feel pretty bad for Esmerelda at points in the book, but I do think that she is a great and strong character. The only point of contention I had with her, was that she kind of left with Victor and Jarak pretty easily.
There were tons of characters in Wolf Spell, and there were points that I got confused, but I appreciated the prologue of backstory we got. It definitely helped me orient myself within the story. If it has to come down to which characters I liked the best out of the book, I would hands down say Esmerelda, and Ian. Even though we only met Ian half way through the book, he brought something to the story that wasn't there before, even with Guardian Jarak. Esmerelda, while I was shaky on her characterization at first, turned into a really solid and strong character. I always can appreciate a transformation into a kick-butt character.
As I said before, the plot is intense because there is so much going on. There is no time for breathers in Wolf Spell, which was refreshing because I didn't skim like I sometimes tend to do in PNRs. Overall this was a solid debut, and I will definitely be picking up the sequel to this one!
Recommend for lovers of paranormal, love triangles, intense action.
Blurb: With a death starts a new beginning...
Eighteen-year-old Esmerelda thinks she’s just a normal girl, but all of that changes the day of her mom’s funeral, when a warlock, intent on using her special powers, kidnaps her. Powers she didn’t know existed. Thrown in the middle of a magical battle, Es struggles to learn her magic while fleeing both vampires and warlocks, at the same time, hunting for the witches that can help defeat her adversary. The only problem is that they are dead.
Thankfully, she has the help of Jarak—her Guardian—who quickly captures her heart, but she wonders if she can win his? Just when she thinks Jarak is the one for her, Ian appears with daggers drawn to save Es from a vampire attack. Ian is cocky and rude, but there is something magnetic about him—something that attracts her to him. With her heart torn between two men, she faces the foes that are out for her blood. Can Es do the unthinkable and awaken them from their graves before time runs out?
