Simple word to described the sequel to a very outstanding trilogy -- A M A Z I N G
I thought the first book was great, but the sequel takes the cake! The secret is revealed. New love arises. Friendship deceived. Death takes place. New journeys have to happen...man oh man...I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
The Spell Master is the sequel to The Elf Girl which is story that follows the journey of fifteen year old elfen Ramsey Wilder. In book one, we learn that Ramsey is an elfen (female elf
) that was taken to the Human Realm for protection because she has a secret that every Realm -- mostly Elemental Fairies -- want to know. In The Elf Girl, she encounters countless meetings with various Elemental Fairies and has to save her sister Zora from them before she gives the secret away. Book 1 ended amazingly with Ramsey meeting guy she has a strong attraction to saving her sister, receiving her ability, learning that her boyfriend Stellan is a dog, getting a note from Finn (fire fairy general) and still not knowing her secret.
The Spell Master reveals so much for us. Ramsey attends ability school (which eventually closes because teachers with high status are needed for the war
) since she is now sixteen years old and has her ability. During this time Stellan is away at war, Addison is at the palace helping the queen, Zora becomes an overprotective and distant jealous sister and she learns that the guy she has a strong attraction for is the one she should be with.
Nathan, her new love, is an amazing young man. He is a Spell Master and he helped her find out her secret by opening up the trunk for her. I love how even though they had insta love they worked on a relationship slowly. Totally loved when the dragons hatched -- Kalani being Ramsey's dragon and Razi being Zora's
Ramsey's secret definitely was a surprise. I thought it had to do with her ability, but I was more shocked when it had to do with who she really was. Being that she was royal made it ten times better. I love how she becomes much more different to elves. Knowing her secret makes the understanding of her being the Chosen Daughter and being the one to end the war between Realms much easier.
I truly review this book without giving too much away to the story, I highly suggest picking it up.
I will say however that Ramsey killing Finn was amazing! And the way she learned to work with her abilities and deal with the danger of the Elemental Fairies was great. Ramsey definitely has grown since the first book and I'm excited to see what happens next for her.
