Get 'Spell Struck' with Ariella Moon!

Hello, dear followers and readers!

I know, I know. What am I thinking? Blogging on a Wednesday? I must be losing my mind! 

Well, I am more than eager to break the flow of the work week by celebrating the anniversary of an amazing book! 

Ariella Moon's Spell Struck hit the e-shelves a year ago today! It's the second in the Teen Wytche series, (Spell Check and Spell Fire being the 1st and 3rd in this wonderful series) and a really compelling read! I had the honor of stumbling upon this series last December, and it definitely added some magic to my holidays. 

So, without further ado, let me tell you a little about Spell Struck !

The Book

The best part about the Teen Wytche series is that every story stands on its own, but they are all connected by characters and a pesky, magical grimoire that's set on making these girls' lives even more complicated, wonderful, and magical than they already are. Spell Struck focuses on Salem/Sarah, a goth girl who plays a big role in the first book. She takes center stage in Spell Struck as the grimoire focuses on her life:

What if the one person who saw through your lies but loved you anyway, harbored a secret that could cost you everything?

When goth outcast Salem Miller casts a love spell on Halloween night, she asks for a boy who is handsome, magical, and artistic. She doesn’t count on Fate sending Aidan Cooper.

As a child, Aidan thought he was being rescued, not abducted. Now fifteen and homeless, he realizes he was taken because of his Gypsy blood. His kidnappers believe he’ll lead them to the Grey Grimoire, a valuable gypsy spell book. Madness. The book doesn’t even exist.

Or does it?

Salem is charged with fixing a half-destroyed spell book, her last hope for saving her sister. Amy attempted suicide and the meds aren’t helping. Maybe a powerful Get Well Spell will cure her.

Aidan’s kidnappers will kill to attain the Grey Grimoire. But if he destroys it, Salem will hate him. Either way, he loses. Again. 


Doesn't it sound wonderful? Well, it should! The book switches points of view between Salem and Aidan, so the reader is gets to watch as both teens struggle to solve their problems and find their place in high school and beyond. Though it is a teen series, I would recommend Spell Struck and all of the Teen Wytche books to anyone who loves a little bit of romance and magic.

  1. What a fabulous introduction to Spell Struck and my Teen Wytche Saga! Thank you so much! And as I wrap up writing book #4 in the series, I can let you in on a little secret. Much of book #4 takes place in a city near and dear to your heart, New Orleans! There may even be a mention or two of Loyola!
