4 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Book 2 in the Cassie Scot series. 
Cassie Scot, still stinging from her parents' betrayal, wants out of the magical world. But it isn't letting her go. Her family is falling apart and despite everything, it looks like she may be the only one who can save them.

To complicate matters, Cassie owes Evan her life, making it difficult for her to deny him anything he really wants. And he wants her. Sparks fly when they team up to find two girls missing from summer camp, but long-buried secrets may ruin their hopes for happiness.

MY REVIEW -
This was a fun, clean paranormal story full of action. The mystery in this one was very good, intriguing. It took me a while to get into it because I had read the first one so long ago - so I had to kind of play catch up with who was who and what had happened. But once I did all that - I really enjoyed this one.

The character development was great. I don't remember liking Cassie as much in the first book, but I really liked her in this one. I think her personality really took shape here. And I also really liked Evan too, I am still trying to figure out if he is a true good guy or bad. I'm hoping we will find out in the third book. My only problem was that there was a lot of characters, kind of too many for me to keep track of. But I liked all the main ones, well done!

"Yesterday afternoon, a ghost robbed the Eagle Rock Savings and Loan." I took the phone away from my ear and stared at it for a minute. When it started shouting "Hello?" at me, I put the phone back to my ear. "Sharif," I said. "Why would a ghost rob a bank?"

I am currently reading the third book in the series - "Mind Games" and will have my review up next Mon. the 9th. So far I am liking it as well  :-)

Thanks to the author, Christine Amensden, for sending me this book for free for my honest review!
