Before Jace came to Oaktree, Alisa was friendless and unpopular. After she saves him from a Hunter, everything changes. Jace and his family introduce her to the world of Spellbringers, and change the way she looks at everything, including herself. Of course, Jace’s older brother, Bryce, is very vocal with his opinions about letting a human in on their secret. When Bryce finally opens himself up to her, things change between them in many ways.
Rachel is every bit your average high school student. Popular, athletic, and has an amazing boyfriend. When Jace shows up on her radar, everything begins to change. He helps her unlock a part of herself she didn’t even know existed. When her dreams of Re’Vel, a powerful demon, start taking a turn for the worse, Rachel has to accept her gifts and look towards Jace and his family.
A dark family secret, danger, and magic, Rachel and Alisa have learn how to adjust to life with their new knowledge and be wary of The Claiming Words.
I can honestly say that this rewrite has turned what used to be The Claiming Words into a more driven and intense story that is now Spellbound. Tricia Drammeh has worked her bottom off to make this every bit the novel that she initially wanted. The care and concern for this story as a whole are evident with every turn of the page.
As someone that has read both The Claiming Words and Spellbound, I can tell you that the story is very different. If you think you shouldn’t read it because you already have read TCW then you’re sadly mistaken. This book is phenomenal and I would recommend it to just about any one.
Amazing job, Tricia!
