Review ~ Entangled (Spellbound #1) - Nikki Jefford

Entangled (Spellbound #1)eARC received via Netgalley for an honest review

Two months after dying, seventeen-year-old witch Graylee Perez wakes up in her twin sister Charlene’s body.

Until Gray finds a way back inside her own body, she’s stuck being Charlene every twenty-hour hours. Her sister has left precise instructions on how Gray should dress and behave. Looking like a prep isn’t half as bad as hanging out with Charlene’s snotty friends and gropey boyfriend.

The “normals” of McKinley High might be quick to write her behavior off as post-traumatic stress, but warlock Raj McKenna is the only person who suspects Gray has returned from the dead.

Now Gray has to solve the mystery of her death and resurrection and disentangle herself from Charlene’s body before she disappears for good.

My Opinion
It has taken me a while to get round to reading this book as I wasn't sure what to expect, however I started it yesterday and couldn't put it down. Entangled was an interesting read with some interesting characters who were easy to relate to and engage with.

Although the book started off pretty slowly I stuck with it an was glad I did. The storyline intrigued me and although magic isn't normally a genre I enjoy this book seemed different. The spells used were kept simple and the magic was kept to a minimum which is why I think I enjoyed it. As well as this I like Gray's character, especially when she got angry. It was great and sometimes funny to read. 

There were a few things I disliked though. Sometime I felt there needed slightly more description during the action sequences, especially towards the end as it seemed a little rushed, so I could imagine things better. There were quite a few vague moments where it was a bit dull to read as the writing lacked detail or explanation and a few times I found myself questioning how something happened while hoping for an answer that either didn't arrive or only half-hearted. I would have also liked more detail in the romances but made this develops in the sequel.

I think because the book was jumping from one character to another the author missed out quite a bit of detail. We got snippets of lives but never the full story and I would have liked to have read about them more, especially Charlene's life.

Overall though this was a quick, easy and enjoyable read that I would recommend to magic and supernatural lovers.
