    Yet another hit!!

    Spellbinder is the second book in the Moonshadow series, a spinoff of the Elder Races books. Thea Harrison has penned another hit that adds to the Elder Races world. If you have enjoyed any of the previous Elder Race's books, then you will love Spellbinder. Morgan le Fae, the unwilling lapdog of the Light Fae Queen, Isabeau, is looking for an escape from his centuries long enslavement. After a careless command issued by Isabeau, he has time away from her constant demands and hopefully time to find a way to gain his freedom. While on his hiatus he develops a fascination for musician Sidonie Martel, which will forever change her life. Sidonie, a talented musician gets dragged into a conflict that may end her career and consequently her life. Abducted and whisked away to Avalon, she must learn to survive by any means necessary. Even if it means giving in to the whims of a narcissistic queen. Morgan and Sidonie are book royalty. They are as wonderful a match as Dragos and Pia or Grace and Khalil (basically every Elder Races couple). The only disappointment I experienced was with Robin's flawed logic. I understand that our wonderful Puck was terribly wounded physically and emotionally in the first book, but Sidonie was just as innocent as Sophie in this war. Thankfully, Puck attempted to make amends for his misdeeds. If you think about this dynamic character you will find the key to Thea's stories. No one character is all good or all bad. They are often the victim of circumstances and as "human" as a member of the Elder races can get. As a wonderful bonus, fans of her previous books will find a revelation about Dragos postulated in Oracle's Moon given more credibility. (I will not post a spoiler, you have to read both books to figure it out.) I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Decent but Not My Favorite

    However, creative paranormal setting can't make up for the pace of this book. It dragged. Especially in the beginning. I read it on my iPad and have no idea of the actual page number to tell you how long it actually is but... It felt REALLY long. I've read books with 550+ pages with no recollection of time passing. I'd be reading and find myself looking at my location because I wanted to know how much further to go. Eventually, my eyes skimmed pages, glossing over chunks description and inner thoughts, wondering why it was necessary. The end didn't seem so bad. Not sure if this was because I was used to skimming sections at that point or if the pace evened out. I think the story was skewed more toward the hero than the heroine for those who like a 50/50 representation. Morgan was the character more developed. Sidonie was good but I never got the sense there was any thing other than her music remarkable about her. This is not a bad thing but I think there may have been a missed opportunity to deepen the characterization a bit. Again, this is not a bad thing--I'm a hero-centric reader--but I know some prefer a character arc from both characters. I didn't feel that was present here.

    Misfortune and redemption

    This review is provided courtesy of an advanced reveiw copy provided by the author. As with many of Thea Harrison's story arcs, “Spellbinder” is not a continuation of Nikolas and Sophie's story, but explores the next part of the tale with a new set of characters. It begins where “Moonshadow” ends, with the puck, Robin, heading out to do a mischief to the queen of the Light Fae. Morgan Le Fae was injured and is now facing his queen after his defeat at the hands of the Daoine Fae. Spellbinder tells the story of Morgan's entrapment by the Light Fae queen and his attempts to free himself. In a series of unlikely chances, aided and abetted by the puck, Morgan slowly becomes entranced by the wholely human musician, Sidonie Martel. Spellbinder is often a difficult tale as Sidonie and Morgan encounter misfortune and malice. There are many challenges for the protaganists, yet continues to offer hope for Morgan's redemption. Both Sidonie and Morgan's characters show such promise. Their anguish and emotional battles are heartfelt and I found myself hoping for their success. Without spoiling the story, I can say that this was a very satisfying read, with some unexpected twists and turns along the way. I've really enjoyed their story and hope to hear more about them in later novels from this story arc.

    Legend come to life. Stunning!

    I love it! An eloquent weaving of legend and fantasy. Trapped in Queen Isabeau's Light Court, Sidonie remarks: "Hell is empty and all the devils are here." Truly, Heaven it is not, as there are many challenges to overcome, but there are many beautiful moments within. Through the course of this story, I've run the gamut of emotions, ending on a note of sheer joy!

    Wonderful follow up to Moonshadow!

    Spellbinder is Thea Harrison's very unique version of what happens when characters from the time of King Arthur’s Court meets heartless Queen Isabeau of the Light Court and is book two in the wonderful Moonshadow trilogy. Those of you that have read Thea’s Elder Races series and book one of the Moonshadow’s trilogy may recall the Queen and her virulent behavior from past books. The leading male character in Spellbinder is Morgan le Fae who unbeknownst to all but for the wicked Queen Isabeau, has been enslaved and forced to follow through with the evil thoughts, whims and deeds of Isabeau. The leading female in Spellbinder is Sidonie Martel who is an accomplished musician that has no magical abilities whatsoever. But Sidonie can & does make magic with her music. She makes you feel deeply, slicing into you with forgotten emotions & bringing forth long buried tears. Morgan is on the run and Sidonie unknowingly becomes the one weakness Morgan can't afford to have. That weakness is noticed & exploited by an odd, wily character that was first introduced to us in Moonshadow. This story involves deep emotions, kidnapping, torture, magic, an evil Queen and so very much more. Thea spent a lot of background time on these characters especially for Morgan, you will understand and feel his desperation, pain & anger. If you have a fascination with Morgan le Fae, enjoy a book rich in background materials and emotions, love Thea Harrison's books & a great read, this book is a MUST read for you! As an added bonus there is a short crossover (from the Elder Races series) at the end of the book that you will love! I was provided with an ARC of Spellbinder from the author for an honest review. All opinions in this review are my own.
