Review: Entangled (Spellbound #1) by Nikki Jefford

SUMMARY (writer's blog)

A Resurrection Spell Gone Wrong

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 behind her death and resurrection and disentangle herself from Charlene’s body before she disappears for good..

I won a signed copy of this book from a blog giveaway. When I found out, I was so happy and excited. I could not wait to read it. I devoured this book in less than 24 hours!! Here's why....

First off, I love the cover! It is breathtaking beautiful! I know the running theme of many books is to use a person on the cover and it works. But this 'cover girl' is one of the most gorgeous pieces of art I've seen in awhile. The cover is outstanding and really made me want to see what this book was all about.

Nikki is such a gifted writer and it really shows in this novel. She gives us some really in-depth characters that we both can love and hate, Gray, Charlene and Raj to name a few. I like that she uses twins. That is very near and dear to my heart because I've been around twins all my life! (My younger sisters are identical twins.) The stereotype of twins is that because they look alike, they act/dress/like/dislike the same and that is so not true! Gray and Charlene (like my sisters) are as different as night and day! Nikki perfectly portrays this.

The story line is one of a kind and subjects are interesting. I haven't come across witches in awhile. And I definitely haven't read anything about coming back to life in another body at all. I love the originality!! The book flowed smoothly and was very logical and clear. Believe me, I've come across some books that I have to reread a passage about 20 times before it makes sense to me. Those are always a pain. This however, was a very clean read from start to finish. All the events were needed in order to close the book like Nikki did. Gray became my favorite character just because of her common sense, her humbleness and the good you could feel coming from her.

I just fell in love with this book and I have nothing negative to say about it at all. Nikki knows how to grab a hold of her readers and not let them go until the very end. I am really looking forward to the rest of the series!
