Spellbound is a novella in the Crossbreed series and it takes place after the evens in Moonstruck. Gem tries to find a cure for the spell cast on Niko.
The plot focuses mostly on Gem and Niko. Her saving him, and them getting closer by telling their backstories to each other. I always thought there would be a romance between these two characters but after learning their stories I think they are destined to be something greater.
There is a huge age difference between Gem, she’s 50 years old which in the Breed world is a baby, Niko is over 1,500 years old. In some ways, they are similar in their noobie status.
I thoroughly enjoyed getting a closer look at these two characters in Spellbound. I can’t wait until the next novel in the Crossbreed series.
Nicole Poole is the reason Dannika Dark is an audio-only author for me. She masterly voices all the characters from the female to the male. She makes each character sound different and she keeps the same voice for each character for every book. Nicole delivered another masterful performance with Spellbound.
about the book:
Niko is caught in a powerful spell that was cast from the very book he sought to protect. Trapped between life and death, his chances of returning look grim.
Gem is determined to set things right. Armed only with her innate knowledge of language, she begins her daunting quest to break the diabolical spell . . . no matter the cost. When an irreversible action unleashes a new threat, Keystone scrambles into action. Lives are at stake as the team scours the city in search of an elusive foe.
A bond forged in secrets. A courageous sacrifice. Will Gem succeed at her daring attempt, or will she inadvertently destroy them all?
