Broken Spell

Broken Spell by Fabio Bueno was amazing! I really enjoyed Wicked Sense, the first in the series about a young witch sent to Seattle to find The Singularity, the most powerful witch ever to exist. Skye, the young witch charged with this task is unique in her ability to sense witches, even from a great distance. In this sequel, Skye has found The Singularity, but has chosen to hide her identity.  It is up to her and her boyfriend, Drake to keep The Singularity a secret until she can get a hold on her unprecedented powers. With danger and tragedy facing their small group of friends, Skye and Drake will have to decide if they are going to work together or apart. 

I was caught up in this story from the first page. I found so much exciting magic in this book, it left me breathless! The story was gripping and intriguing. I could not put this book down. I had a difficult time not sneaking my iPad in to the classroom with me. All of the characters were vivid and full of history. I was excited to learn more about the world of witches. There were also some new characters introduced that I have strong opinions about, but I'm not sure what those opinions are yet. I cannot wait for the next installment in this great series!

Wicked Sense

Skye is a witch with the unique talent of being able to sense when other witches are around. It is up to her to go to Seattle to find the most powerful witch that has ever lived. She wants to remain inconspicuous, but her incomparable beauty makes her irresistible to Drake. Their new found friendship leads them to trouble as they both search for the Singularity in The high school. 

I really liked this story. The characters were well-developed. The story was full of suspense. I love a world that contains witches. I only wish there had been a little more magic thrown in. Or some explanations of spells. But this is just a personal preference because I love to read about magic. 

I would love to read more about Mona and her life, but I am hoping that will be in the next book. I am really excited to see what happens next in the lives of these characters. This book is so well written that it could be read as a stand alone, but I am very glad that there wil be more!
