REVIEW - Charm Me Again by Tena Stetler

Daylan, a warlock, is being haunted, but what the ghost wants is a mystery. His magical powers bring him no closer to an answer—until he encounters Josie, a Yoga instructor.



REVIEW

"Family Secrets, Hidden Talents, and a Different World"

Mrs. Tena Stetler titled her chapters and this one could be a core idea of the Charm Me Again. These glimpses into what the chapters will bring do their job and contribute to the pleasant and fun atmosphere which is a plus for the story.

Another plus is the way in which the real and the magical worlds are mixed, elements of one influencing the other. The old and new, dead (or almost dead) and alive play together in a whirlpool in which the characters and readers are dragged together. 

The author created various and variate well-built characters: enemies, friends, and lovers (in different lives or in our present one). The main couple has to conquer enough obstacles and the happy ending is well deserved.

Apparently, it is a clear line between good and evil but the suspense and mystery are well wielded. Gotta Love It When a Plan Comes Together is just a title because the surprises could come at any time.

Charm Me Again is what I wanted these days from the genre. Mrs. Stetler fulfilled my wish. Read the story, you probably will be charmed too.

Description:

Published: December 9th, 2019

Daylan, a warlock, is being haunted, but what the ghost wants is a mystery. His magical powers bring him no closer to an answer—until he encounters Josie, a Yoga instructor.

But when she is kidnapped by an ancient Fae Warrior set on revenge Daylan must rescue her before the rogue claims her as his own. During his quest, his world spirals out of control, and a devastating curse comes to light. Could the ghost hold the answers he needs?

Can he break the age-old curse to save Josie and their future, or will Daylan lose her forever?

EXCERPT

Suddenly, the wind changed direction, a thin maroon line formed along the flat bottom of the dark clouds spreading across the sky where moments before there’d been only a few fluffy cotton ball clouds in a sea of blue. The maroon line widened then switched to vertical and spread open to reveal a shimmering interior.

Shadows emerged from the cloud then disappeared. As he was about to comment, huge raindrops plopped on the ground followed by pea size hail that grew to softball size.


Josie an for cover and he followed. Protected under a ledge, she cupped her hands over her ears as the roaring of the storm combined with huge ice balls smashing against rocks echoed through the canyon. She elbowed him and cocked a brow in question, pointing to the vegetation that remained unharmed.

His eyes narrowed. Something isn’t right. I can feel it. Magic is spinning this storm. But who—how and why? At a loss for answers, he shrugged and urged her further under the ledge to wait out the storm. Brushing the wet strands of hair out of her face, he smiled. She looked like a drowned rat but the fragrance around her reminded him of sweet spring flowers. He leaned into to her and brushed his lips over hers. Immediately, he straightened and backed away. Her eyes were still closed. Maybe I could’ve lingered…

Her eyes blinked open and she licked her lips. After a beat, she waggled a finger in front of him. “Not a good idea.”
