My Review of Moonlight Mayhem, Book 2 in the Spellbound Series by Sherry Soule



Otherworldly Creatures. Dazzling Magic. Fiery Romance.
Shiloh Ravenwolf thought she was getting used to the strange events in Whispering Pines, until the full moon brings another surge of supernatural threats to her coastal town. Ferocious wolves, deadly necromancers, and shambling zombies have descended upon the neighborhood, so Shiloh needs to gain control of her magical abilities—fast!
It sucks that she has a crippling fear of the dark, which for a demon hunter can be an epic problem. But she spends so much time wallowing in the darkness, how can she not become a part of it?
When her classmates are attacked by a mysterious creature and her father is murdered, Shiloh vows vengeance. Forcing her phobias aside, she forms an unlikely coven of supernaturally gifted teens to help her eradicate this menace. Except that’s not all Shiloh has to worry about. She’s battling a different monster within herself and struggling not to become the very thing she fights: evil.
But with demon blood inside her—anything can happen…

My Review:
Having really enjoyed Beautifully Broken, Book I in Sherry Soule’s Spellbound Series, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to read Book II as well. It started out rough for Shiloh, nothing new, and boy, once again, I loved the way she handled herself. I can say in all honesty, that this YA series so far is something that I would actually recommend to someone with teenage daughters, if you know what I mean. Great, strong, female character lead, and age appropriate content with quite the dark and paranormal edge to it. I think Sherry Soule has a great handle on what a paranormal YA series book should contain.
Honestly, I just love Shiloh. A great character. Strong and weak in all the right places. What she has to deal with is a lot, and she does so with the grace of a strong and big-hearted teen with special gifts.
The town, her friends, her enemies, are all portrayed well by Ms. Soule, written well, with a nice balance of description and action to keep a reader turning the pages. I look forward to more in this series. Oh, and can I say that I just love her book covers :)
