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
I enjoyed this book but not as much as the first. I still loved all the characters but the story was just a lot more than I was expecting. What does that mean? I’m not sure how to explain this book without giving all the details away. So let me try doing this without confusing you all.
I enjoyed seeing all the characters back again in this book. This book revolves around Cynthia, Serena’s sister. Cynthia is as strong as her sister but reckless which I wasn’t expecting. After reading about her in the first book as being boy crazy I was thrown off a bit by her in this book, however I did enjoy her character and I loved how she was really determined to show the men she was able to do just what why were able to do. (sorry for being so vague just don’t want to give it away) Lukas was very likable, both books I actually liked the men more then the girl characters, they are so super sweet and very caring about the girls and I really think it was what both the girls needed. They were great counterparts for the girls and the relationship between Cynthia and Lukas was so cute and I just loved them together.
The story was filled with so much information and not enough of the story, the end was fantastic & I really enjoyed it but the build to that point seemed to take a long time. The struggle to be a woman in this world is shown quite strongly in this books and the twist at the end makes me so eager to read the next one. I think I what really got me in this book was I was looking for more POV’s then just Cynthia, I was hoping to have Serena also.
I gave Mine to Spell 3.5/5 stars I loved the characters but the story wasn’t what I was expecting but the end was wonderful. I can’t wait to see were Janeal takes these two characters next. I am really looking forward to the next book in the series. Regardless of how I felt about the story in this book, I strongly recommend this book and series for a unique and wonderful read.
