Wolf Spell by M.R. Polish

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?

Our thoughts:

This book was fast paced with a constant tension that was palpable. I enjoyed the flow of the book. It seemed that the plot seemed to almost peak and then at the end had soft crescendo. However, though the ending was not as amazing as I thought it should be, I wasn't disappointed. Because it still left me wanting to read more. I want to see what happens to this character. I want to see what becomes of the villain. I still want to see more.

The characters were developed quickly and the way they wove in and out of each other was particularly interesting. The way the view points changed and the fact that you could see through different eyes, made this book feel fresh with every chapter. It was also refreshing to have an opportunity to review a book that left sexual tension as just that...tension. Though there was a lack of naughty moments, the physical tension was still palpable. And since the characters well written, you felt each and every moment.

I give this book 4 stars. A very good read.

How would you feel being kidnapped at your mother's funeral and then told that you have magical powers? For Esmeralda, this happened! She has no idea what is going on and is told about the powers she supposedly wields will awaken some dead witches. Throw in a hot bodyguard and his brother, what's a girl to do? Decisions, decisions.

Wolf Spell was such an entertaining read. I loved how easy it was to get sucked into this book and how badly I need to read book 2. I really enjoyed how M.R added another author in the mix as part of a scene. Wolf Spell is definitely original material with none others out there like it.

I have the feeling that this series will be one of my favorites to date.
