Book Review: Daughter of the Spellcaster

Has a spell been cast?

Lena Dunkirk is a practicing witch, Ryan McNally a wealthy playboy. Logic says mismatch, yet from the first they share a passion that defies reason, as if they know each other from another place, another time. Then Lena gets pregnant and runs for the safety of home.

Months later, when Ryan appears at her door looking to help raise their child, Lena doesn’t know whom to trust–particularly now that “guru to the stars” Bahru has taken an interest in her baby, offering gifts forged of magic.

Soon she and Ryan are sharing eerie dreams of ancient lands, while a vengeful demon plots to take possession of their child. As the moment of birth approaches, the demon’s power rises, forcing the hand of love to wield the blade that will decide the fate of a child’s soul–and the future of the world.

Wow!  It's not very often that on comes across a book that is fairly accurate when it comes to Wicca.  And the reason that I only say fairly is that the element of fantasy was introduced.  But it does a fantastic job of showing basic spellwork and explaining some of the rites. 

As you can tell I am rather impressed by DAUGHTER OF THE SPELLCASTER.  I just loved Lena, Ryan and Lena's mom Selma.  All great characters portrayed with a deft touch.  Rather then being one dimensional we get to see them in both great days and moments of weakness. 

The plot itself is woven together beautiful with times of terror and of joy, and all with that touch of magic.  One is never quite sure just what the next page will bring which keep me glued to the book.

I highly recommend DAUGHTER OF THE SPELLCASTER to anyone that enjoys their romantic suspense with that little extra.  I rate this book a 4.6.

***I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
