I really enjoyed the book since it took a small turn in the middle but it wasn't entirely romance-based. I also enjoyed the fantasy that the author incorporated into the plot. Overall, great book and I would definitely like to read again..... I also just found out that there is a second book in the series named "Spellcaster" and I am very excited to read that one as well!

Wow. This book started off good. And somehow ended up being a trashy romance novel for teens. I mean, I wanted to like it - but the characters were waaaay too over-the-top. The main character (Emma) was often annoying and needy; Brendan was possessive and dangerous and just weird; and the mean girls/guys were stereotypical, unrealistic jerks. And the ending? Lame.

This book reminded me of twilight...he was nice then ignored her...then saved her...fobidden love and what not. i like the over the top protaganist as she was bitchy and alot like the girls i've met... but a little too over the top. i own the book if anyone wants to borrow it just send me a message. its a good read. my type of writing style. hope my book ends up this nice. i would have lovedto see more of angelique. she was "the best friend" i want a second book to read. MORE OF OTHER CHARACTERS... but really good book.

The romance of Twilight meets the premise of The Eternal Ones -- that's exactly how this novel hashed itself out in my head. Since the witchcraft isn't a major element in the story, the reader's attention ends up focused entirely on Emma and Brendan's relationship, as well as the consequences and results of it. Shultz does a relatively good job at making the whole "meant-to-be-together-because-of-a-legend" situation realistic (i.e. not Edward Cullen stalker-ish), but still lets us feel the heat of their attraction.

Supporting characters needed work. Angelique is the stereotypical witchy girl, sporting black and toting around spells and charms, but her support for Emma makes her endearing and a little more carved out than a stereotype. The antagonist, though, is plain delusional. It's hard to believe that any teenager would act so insanely, first of all; secondly, he hardly seems to fit the legend which Emma and Brendan's relationship is based on.

Unfortunately, because the antagonist seemed so off, the climax as a result was simply not enough for me. Oh, and Emma's dead brother makes a (corporeal) reappearance too, which doesn't fly since the supernatural aspect of Spellbound doesn't extend beyond street lamps shattering and reincarnation. A good read for a romance, but not much else.
