~REVIEW~ Mine to Spell by Janeal Falor

Mine to Spell (Mine, #2)

Cynthia has always hidden from her father’s hexes behind her older sister. When her family gains independence unheard of for women, she’s relieved that her days of harsh punishments are over. But as her seventeenth birthday approaches—the typical age to be sold to a new master—death threats endanger her sisters. She now faces two options: run or meet society’s expectations.For once, Cynthia isn’t going to let her older sister shield her from the problem. She’s going to prove to herself, her sisters, and society that her family isn’t a threat to their traditions. She willingly chooses to be purchased by a new master. A bold step that takes her somewhere she never thought she would go and to a man she might possibly fall in love with. With his help, she may just find a way to save her sisters while discovering how to stand up for herself. If she lives long enough.

The Plot

Even though in You are Mine Serena finally showed the Chardonian that women could be free. but things didn't change much. Now that Serena owns her family she mist still abide by Chardonian customs. That includes putting sixteen year old Cynthia into the marriage pool. If she does not the family would not be safe. So Cynthia does what is demanded of her. She enters the marriage pool but only to find out that her life would never be the same. Unlike her sister Cynthia has a secret that if found out could kill her. When she had no other choice but to reveal it she faces her biggest trial ever. Showing the women of Chardonia what her sister couldn't. That their magic is so much more.

The Characters

Unlike Serena. Cynthia was the complete opposite. She lived the same life as Serena but went against the grain in her own secretive way. She was impulsive at times but loved her family fiercely and wanted to break free of the constraints the women of Chardonia always lived in. Starting off as a weak character she slowly learns to finally find strength in herself to face the toughest battle ever.

Then there is Lukas. A  Chyron that is exactly like Zade but different as well. Where Zade kept to himself and said few words, Lukas was an open book. He was supportive of Cynthia even knowing the harm that could come to him. He is fiercely protective of her as well as the cause he is apart of. He was just as or more wonderful than Zade.

There are also the former characters from the kine series in the book tat are just as great and just as evil as was wonderful to read more about Serena and Zade and their growing relationship. Their are also new characters that make the story so much more interesting.

The Romance

One thing that I always wish more of is the romance. I was not disappointed with having more of it in this book but still wishes for more. :) The relationship between Lukas and Cynthia was sweet and innocent but also intense and passionate.  The partnership that they both have makes their relationship so much more exciting and stronger.  

The Wrap Up

MINE TO SPELL was just as wonderful as You are Mine and Mine to Tarnish. I enjoyed Cynthia's story and cannot wait to see what happens next. With its cliffhanger you just know there is so much more coming. I cannot wait.
