Blurb:

Cynthia has always hidden from her father’s hexes behind her older sister. When her family gains independence unheard of for women, she’s relieved that her days of harsh punishments are over. But as her seventeenth birthday approaches—the typical age to be sold to a new master—death threats endanger her sisters. She now faces two options: run or meet society’s expectations.

For once, Cynthia isn’t going to let her older sister shield her from the problem. She’s going to prove to herself, her sisters, and society that her family isn’t a threat to their traditions. She willingly chooses to be purchased by a new master. A bold step that takes her somewhere she never thought she would go and to a man she might possibly fall in love with. With his help, she may just find a way to save her sisters while discovering how to stand up for herself. If she lives long enough.

My review:

***I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review***

‘Mine to Spell’ follows the story of Cynthia, who lives in a world where women are just possessions, and are owned by men, who are warlocks. Men do not care about women and use them as breeding machines.

Oh my God. This book was awesome!!! It was so good! Gah, I can’t rave enough about this!

Cynthia is a great protagonist. After reading You are Mine, I didn’t expect Cynthia to top Serena. Cynthia seemed so bubbly, and happy, and boy-crazy, so I didn’t possibly expect this wonderful story. 

Cynthia is now living very comfortably with her sisters and mother when her life falls in danger because of some threats. So, to stop the threats, she enters into the marriage pool. Since her blood has a lot of magic (hint,hint ;D), she has many offers.

This book is even better than You are Mine, which I didn’t believe was possible. Cynthia was much better than Serena (not that Serena was bad, mind you!). Also, the overall awesomeness level of the book increased a lot!!!

The world-building was just as awesome as it had been in the last book. All of their emotions are portrayed so beautifully. I’m so excited for the next book! The plot is just….unbelievable and completely unexpected. So, it’s safe to assume that I absolutely loved this book.

Overall, I give this book 4.5 stars. Everyone should read it!

Review: You are Mine

Name: You are Mine

Author: Janeal Falor

Series: Mine, #1

My rating: 4 stars

Blurb:

Serena knows a few simple things. She will always be owned by a warlock. She will never have freedom. She will always do what her warlock wishes, regardless of how inane, frivolous, or cruel it is. And if she doesn’t follow the rules, she will be tarnished. Spelled to be bald, inked, and barren for the rest of her life—worth less than the shadow she casts.

Then her ownership is won by a barbarian from another country. With the uncertainty that comes from belonging to a new warlock, Serena questions if being tarnished is really worse than being owned by a barbarian, and tempts fate by breaking the rules. When he looks the other way instead of punishing her, she discovers a new world. The more she ventures into the forbidden, the more she learns of love and a freedom just out of reach. Serena longs for both. But in a society where women are only ever property, hoping for more could be deadly.

My Review:

***I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review***

‘You are Mine’ follows the story of Serena, who lives in a world where women are nothing but possessions. The men are all warlocks, so they have more control over women. Women are not allowed to speak with the men freely, and if they offer their opinions, they are hexed by the men.

Wow. This is such a good book. It definitely deserves more fame.

Serena was such an amazing character! I totally loved her from the beginning. She is a great protagonist. Zade was very intriguing. Cynthia was one of the sweetest characters I’ve read. Katherine was just plain awesome.

The plot was an excellent one, and the execution did not fail. I was feeling all the emotions which Serena was feeling. The world-building is so beautifully done. I can’t gush enough about this book!

Overall, I give this book 4.5 stars. Can’t wait to start the next one!
