Cool Book of the Week: Spellbound

Spellbound: Spellbringers Book One

by Tricia Drammeh

Why is Spellbound cool?

Would your grandmother like this book?

I think she would have liked it. She loved to read anything with romance. 

What is your elevator pitch?
When the Alexander family moves to the small, southern town of Oaktree, secrets and magic collide, and life for Rachel and Alisa will never be the same.

How did you come up with the plot?

I came up with the characters before the plot evolved. I love paranormal romance and fantasy, so I wanted to write a book that had all the elements I enjoy in a book, but also one my kids could read.

How is this book different from other books in this genre?
Spellbound features a cast of multicultural characters, which is a rarity in young adult fantasy. A wide range of teens and young adults will be able to relate to the characters.

Why is your book cool?
My book is cool because it appeals to a variety of readers. There’s romance, magic, adventure, and drama. It’s also cool because it’s the first in a series, but readers won’t have to wait to read the following books. Firebound (book two) is already available and Unbound (book three) is being released on December 5th. How cool is that?

Very cool!

Why Reviewers think Spellbound is cool:

"Ms Drammeh has begun a truly spellbinding series about magic, danger and the empowering force of love. Her characters are well drawn and believable, thanks to her wonderful prose and use of dialogue. I can hardly wait for the next book.

The wonderful Spellbringers series will appeal to lovers of magical fantasy for new adults and even older people who are young at heart." -Juliet B. Madison

"With realistic issues and language, Tricia lifts the veil on a secret world that surrounds us. I cannot wait until the next one comes out to see how the claiming words will protect, bind and enhance these two girls lives." -Michel Prince

"This book is phenomenal and I would recommend it to just about any one. Amazing job, Tricia!" -Maegan Provan

About the book:

The Demon Re’Vel stalks his prey in the forest of dreams, slowly gaining control over the mind of his victim. Rachel doesn’t realize the Demon is real. In fact, she doesn’t believe in magic, Demons, Hunters, or any of the other things the Alexanders have warned her about. She resists their protection, but can’t resist her overwhelming feelings for Jace. 

Alisa has been drawn to Jace since the day she saved him from a Hunter attack. A mere human in a world of Spellbringers, Alisa has been embraced by the Alexander family as a hero, but not everyone is willing to accept her. Jace’s intimidating older brother, Bryce, keeps his emotions and his secrets hidden. When Bryce confides in Alisa, it puts her relationship with Jace and the entire Alexander family at risk. 

Danger, secrets, and betrayal collide, and when the Demon makes his claim, the small, southern town of Oaktree becomes a battleground for Rachel’s life.
