Hello everyone!! Today I am sharing a series I LOVE again with you just cuz I wanna make sure you know how cool it is! LOL! And I have a giveaway!
Title: Saved by the Spell (Book Two of the Anna Wolfe Series)
Author: Casey Keen
Genre: Paranormal & Urban Fantasy Romance
Expected Release Date: October 11, 2013
Reveal Host: Lady Amber’s Tours
Two worlds in danger.
A Grand Witch behind bars.
A stunning Werewolf and a devilishly handsome Warlock’s pursuit for her affections.
You think you have it bad? Grand Witch Anna Wolfe awakens to find herself imprisoned by Micah, the Prince of Darkness. Micah’s on a quest for world domination—and it’s not just the Netherworld that’s in danger. The human world is threatened as well. Now, it’s up to Anna to escape from Micah’s clutches so she can locate The Scholars and an ancient book before both falls into the wrong hands.
With a fiercely loyal Werewolf and immensely powerful Warlock by her side, what can go wrong?
A lot apparently.
If fighting off the Prince of Darkness wasn’t enough, Anna’s emotions are a whirlwind, as she battles between what fate demands and what she actually wants.
…His magic continues its course through me, draining all of mine. I need to resist… to fight him. I have to do something before he has the chance to completely snuff me out or find The Scholars. My jaw clenches and my hands roll into tight balls. My shoulders tense, preparing myself for the upcoming battle. I focus all of my energy into stopping him. Bit by bit, my magic shoves its way past his like a bully on a schoolyard. His grip stiffens. A trickle of blood glides down the side of my forearm from his piercing fingernails.
“Go ahead, Anna, fight me. I guarantee it will only hurt you more.”
I throw every memory and emotion Micah has created or tarnished, tossing them into the raging furnace of hate burning inside of me. I slam my eyelids shut and Valen’s face pops inside my head. I need to get back to him. I squeeze my eyes tightly, channeling all the vigor I have, hoping to push Micah out. A fissure breaks right down the middle of his magic, allowing mine to explode to the surface. I feel his power retreat as mine conquers his. I flip my eyes open, stealing a glimpse of his face…
I was hooked from book one! And now, book two is not only great, it’s exceeding my expectations and making me wait for book three is pretty much killing me!! Anna is captured at the end of book one, and starting in this one, you see who has her, where he has her, why he has her, and what he plans on doing with her. Let’s just say the creeptastic factor has just sky rocketed. WOAH. AND, everyone back at home is scrambling to try to figure out a way to get her out. This one is also written a little different. Since Anna is captured, you can’t know what’s going on, so you still get Anna’s first person POV, but you also get a third person POV from the others at home. I think this made for an interesting take. Stupid Micah stealing Anna away has made this little interesting change very intriguing.
Anna is learning to fight really hard, for her life, for her survival, and just outright for her. And Martello, Janie and Kristy are all doing their parts at home to try to help find ways to find Anna. Roman and Valen are now almost outright fighting for Anna’s attentions. Micah is just creepy. He’s definitely scary and I want to run away, quickly, with large steps. And as Anna learns more about herself, her love life, it’s quite complicated, and it’s only going to get worse, things are spiraling into somethings awesomely crazy!
I just can’t talk about the guys right now. I mean, Micah may think he’s in the running, if only by force, but I just want him to die…. Valen and Roman, well now that’s a whole new set of wine glasses. I like them both, one more than the other, but I won’t say anything, as you just need to read this one on your own 🙂
This one is maybe a little slower in the beginning as you are learning as Anna is about her kidnapping, but once things start up, you will need a seat belt to hold on to your seat. It is way fast paced and if I can just say, HOLY SHIT BATMAN-HOW YOU GUNNA LEAVE ME LIKE THAT AGAIN!!!! There is another, very epic, mouth opening, jaw dropping, pee on yourself cliff hanger. If you aren’t a fan of cliff hangers, this one may kill you. I’m so very impressed! A GREAT, PHENOMENAL, WHIRLWIND RIDING 5 PAWS!!

A sister kidnapped.
An impending war between Heaven and Hell looming around the corner.
A Grand Witch who has no idea what she is.
The Prince of Darkness’s obsession in claiming her.
Two sinfully gorgeous men pulling her in two different directions.
As the owner of the coffee shop Deja Brew in Savannah, Georgia, Anna thought her life was ordinary. That is until her sister is kidnapped by a demon, prompting two handsome men to march into her life unexpectedly. Valen, the sinfully gorgeous, overprotective werewolf who is Anna’s sworn guardian and Roman, the most handsome and powerful Warlock in the entire Netherworld.
Suddenly, her world is stripped of everything she knows and replaced with frightening news about who she really is – a powerful Grand Witch. Now, it’s up to her to draw out her dormant magic, rescue her sister and stop an impending heavenly war threatening to eradicate the human race all while staying alive.
…Searing, damp stones press into my cheek, squishing my other eye closed. I sit up, wiping the nasty grime off my face. The slickness of it makes me wince. God knows what it is. I try to take a deep breath, but fail. Breathing is a chore in the dense, blistering air. It feels like I’m inhaling globs of boiling water. I stand, allowing my limbs time to regain their balance. Suddenly, I’m running down a passageway without any light to guide me… Thousands of butterflies take flight in my stomach as a current of air swiftly engulfs me. I’m falling at a high rate of speed, like the dip in a roller coaster, minus the excitement and safety harnesses. I try to scream, but panic hijacks my voice. I hit the bottom hard, miraculously unscathed.
I stand, wiping a sticky substance off my jeans. I try not to dwell on it. Lifting my arms, I extend them in front of me, searching for a doorway. My hands grope over the hundreds of clammy bricks surrounding me like the bottom of a well. In the loud silence, I hear my name, but Janie isn’t calling me. This voice is lower than a whisper, almost inaudible. Am I losing my mind? Confinement in closed quarters and pitch-black darkness have been known to do that. Again, I hear my name… Anna… It echoes off the tightly enclosed walls, and smacks my ears. It grows louder before abruptly stopping. A velvet voice soothes my sore ears, but makes me jump backwards. The back of my head rams the wall, forcing me to slink onto the ground. My muscles tense and my entire body begins to throb. I prop myself against the bricks, hoping it will cease. I attempt to fold my legs into my chest, but they rebel in pain. I focus my thoughts on survival, rather than the insects I know must be blanketing the ground…
What if I said I am soooo mad!!! Wanna know why…. BECAUSE I HAVE TO WAIT! This book was a refreshing, fun, adventurous read, and just when I was all serious, it’s the end. LOL Yeah I really liked this one. I know it’s going to be a series, because I will seriously put a cajun hurtin’ on someone if they don’t gimme the rest soon. 🙂 LOL OK, now that I’ve gotten that part out, let’s talk goodies. First, this story starts out with a normal girl. She isn’t anything special, she owns a cool coffee shop in Georgia, she has some pretty cool friends- who made me giggle lots- she has a slightly crazy and unhinged family, but they are sweet… And then one day she starts getting these weird messages that someone is coming for her. AND THEN her world literally spins painfully out of control.
Anna is complicated. I really liked her character, except I swear to God, if she doesn’t get smart and stop making the most STUPID decisions ever, I am going to kick her… yeah ok. LOL First, I like her because she has a normal every day life. She’s insecure from the last bad news dude, but she’s doing her thing with her coffee shop, and she has a fun girl friend who keeps her upbeat, and my favorite is her gay bartending friend who literally made the story for me. I like that she does grow as a character… except… seriously, when people are out to get you, and the person trying to protect you say “stay here”… DO NOT go running off by yourself… like ten times. HAHAHAHA This of course causes lots of actions scenes to come about, but I totally wanted to punch her in the face. She talks about not being the stupid girl in the horror movies she watches, and then she does it. And yet, I can’t find it in myself to dislike her. She’s grown on me, and she’s an interesting character, and I really want her to make it out of her predicament. 🙂
Valen and Roman are HAWT!!! H-O-TTTTTTT!!! Seriously. I am of course all Team Valen- I mean come on, he’s a werewolf so of course I chose him. BUT, Roman is seriously got a few of my hairs kinked. He’s hot in a totally different way. Valen is the sweet, kind, over protective WOLF, who of course goes hot and cold and I wanna beat him up too. LOL Then Roman is Mr Serious face, who is all about learning the hard way, but dude is like walking Man Candy! GO TEAM VALEN…. BUT I really hope Team Roman gets a good girl 🙂 Maybe Kristi or Janie 🙂
Then there’s Micah…. Soooo, you know the saying “The devil in the church hat”…. Dude is smoking hot, seriously powerful, and TOTALLY EVIL CRAY CRAY!!! And it only gets worse from there. I have a feeling Lucifer is going to make an appearance soon and I totally can’t wait to see how that’s gunna play out. 🙂 Anyways, the plot- major interesting. I wasn’t expecting that last little twist. And seriously, that ending, you are totally killing me. Well placed cliff hanger. I need some hints soon though. I am very intrigued with how the author writes. It’s easy which makes the flow of the book so much better. I am seriously excited for book two to come out, even if I’m also impatient. I recommend this to anyone who likes paranormals and urban fantasy. It’s got almost everything you could want! 5 WOLFISHLY, MAGICALLY DELICIOUS PAWS !!!
I was born in Philadelphia, PA and grew up in the suburban outskirts of this amazing city. I love anything paranormal and/or supernatural – seriously I live in Philadelphia! For those of you who don’t know, this city is an awesomely haunted place! This healthy paranormal addiction has provided me the motivation to write my first book, “I’ll Be Damned.” I graduated from Drexel University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and I’m currently working on the Anna Wolfe Series
