Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: With a death starts a new beginning...

Eighteen-year-old Esmerelda thinks she’s just a normal girl, but all of that changes the day of her mom’s funeral, when a warlock, intent on using her special powers, kidnaps her. Powers she didn’t know existed. Thrown in the middle of a magical battle, Es struggles to learn her magic while fleeing both vampires and warlocks, at the same time, hunting for the witches that can help defeat her adversary. The only problem is that they are dead.

Thankfully, she has the help of Jarak—her Guardian—who quickly captures her heart, but she wonders if she can win his? Just when she thinks Jarak is the one for her, Ian appears with daggers drawn to save Es from a vampire attack. Ian is cocky and rude, but there is something magnetic about him—something that attracts her to him. With her heart torn between two men, she faces the foes that are out for her blood. Can Es do the unthinkable and awaken them from their graves before time runs out?
When I started reading this book I actually had no idea what was going on! It starts straight away and it was very sudden! I found it slightly confusing as there were a lot of names mentioned as well but as the book progressed I was able to figure out what was happening and also work out the background of the plot and also where each of the characters fitted in to it! Apart from that and after I could follow the book I actually really enjoyed it! The plot of this book was pretty original! I normally don't really like reading books about witches as they are normally quite cliché but I found Wolf Spell to have it's own original aspects to the main character being a witch! There were also other supernatural elements in this book as well which kept it interesting and fresh! The characters were written amazingly! Esmerelda 'Es' was the main character and I really liked her! She full embraced her magic and she found out a lot about her life during this book and you couldn't help but feel sorry for her! Jarak was one of the love interest's of Es and I loved him! He was protective of Es and you could tell that he really had feelings for her when you got a glimpse into his head when the story was told from his point of view! I loved Ian as well though for the exact same reasons! I really enjoyed Wolf Spell being written from Es's, Jarak's and at some scenes Ian's point of view as it made the book so much more interesting! It actually took the love triangle between Es, Jarak a while to come into play as Ian came into this book quite far into it! The love triangle progressed quite far for Ian only being in the book for about the last 40%! I actually liked this love triangle but I couldn't pick between Jarak and Ian! I was Team Jarak at the beginning of the book but then I honestly couldn't choose when Ian was introduced! I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series and I really like the cover! Big thank you to M.R. Polish for providing me with a copy of Wolf Spell and also to Supagurl for having me on the Blog Tour!
Author bio:
If I am not producing magic potions, traveling to far off lands and falling in love with mythical creatures, then I am awake - tripping over toys, chasing my kids and conjuring ways to unknowingly booby trap our house for my husband. (Yes its unknowingly, I swear I never placed the tiny plastic army man in his path for him to find in the dark of midnight!) I love my husband and my four wonderful children (all of whom help with the booby traps!) We are Nevadians and are happy, although I envy and miss the beautiful mountains of Idaho. I love writing Young Adult and Adult Fantasy and Paranormal with Romance, although you never know what could show up in my books!
