He’s got secrets of his own and those secrets land Mae knee-deep in a world she had no idea existed. Among witches, vampires, and alien half breeds, Mae struggles to learn her place in this new world. Can she and Beck, her new Irish lover, overcome obstacles that span over great time and distances?

I thought this was a really neat story! Descendants of ancient aliens turning into witches and vampires is a cool concept. I liked the characters and the bonds they all forge. Having Helen’s soul inside Mae’s body and that being what drew Beck to her to begin with was an added complication that definitely made for great, though sometime awkward and infuriating, drama.

That being said, I was a little let down. While I was fond of the characters, I wasn’t invested in them. If something happened, I was sad, but not on the edge of my seat. The story was also pretty predictable. I wasn’t ever really surprised at all, even at a revelation that was a big plot point. So while enjoyable, the story felt a little slow when focused on Mae’s training, and overall just a little two dimensional.

In Conclusion:

A fun read that is a different twist on vampires and witches, Spell Checked is a light hearted book with a sweet romance and some heat. Don’t miss out on an interesting story!
