Strega-Magic: The Spirit Never Dies by Lynne Russell-Review by Elena Tobar

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is utterly captivating. I was immediately drawn into this story from the very first page. I was cheering for Annie the entire time that she was on a fascinating journey of self discovery. This book really highlights how important it is to listen to your intuition and to always follow your heart. Just because the life you want might not be what’s expected of you it’s never to late to change the course of your life and take a different path. It can be so hard to reach for happiness but it’s worth the risk and the connection between Annie and Ian is sheer magic! The flashbacks to an older time and exploring family history was so fascinating. This book is unlike anything I’ve ever read before and I absolutely adored it! This is definitely a must read story of romance and self discovery that transcends time itself.

Strega: Magic: The Spirit Never Dies is such a wonderful read! It is out of my normal genre but I found it refreshing and welcomed the fantastic story-telling of the author. The way she was able to describe the characters, scenery, and emotions made me feel as though I was a spectator in 1800’s Italy and modern day Massachusetts. Even though a love story is at the center of this novel, it is far from a romance. The twists and turns made me want to keep reading until I was finished and even then, I wish the story could have gone on longer. I loved this book!

The best thing for me is finding new authors and new books. This was just the ticket. I love paranormal or fantasy type books and I love the way this one was written. The multi timeline element of this book really works well. I like how the past was used and how it really was the key to everything. The author really has a unique and refreshing story.

I was really hooked from the beginning and I could not put this book down. From the historical part of the book to the present day the story was flawless and really flowed well. I look forward to more from this author and I really hope this is the beginning of a good series.

Kissing Darkness (Dark Spell Series Book 5) by Isra Sravenheart – Review by Jenni Bishop

Kissing Darkness (Dark Spell #5)Kissing Darkness by Isra Sravenheart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The darkness has taken over and there is deception and lies everywhere. This is the fifth book in this series and each one gets a little better than the one before. There is something for everyone to love in this dark paranormal fairy-tale-esque story, with magic and witches, danger and deceit, suspense and drama, demonic sorceress and revenge.
Not everyone is as they seem and each and every one of them have their own agenda of lies to get what they want but they each get far more than they bargained for when the dark vs the light. No wonder her heart has blackened and her soul has turned towards the dark. Beware what you create.

Strega – Magic: The Spirit Never Dies by Lynne Russell. This book was so good. It’s not a book you can read lightly you really have to think about it and pay attention but that made it much more real to me. Its the story of the women in the Ciofani family who are from Italy and they use magic. I really enjoyed Annie and she was such a strong, independent woman who mad great strides in her life thru this book. Annie came out stronger than ever due to things she had to undergo. The writing in this book made me feel like I was in Italy and made me almost believe I had magical powers! The story has a lot of action and you will be amazed at how fast you turn the pages. Do yourself a favor and read this amazing novel about Italian women and their magical powers!

This is a detailed and rich story that takes you on journey right from the first page.  I found the whole story to be so interesting. It is completely different to what I would expect from this author but it was a great story nonetheless.
It was easy to imagine what the author was describing. The settings, the characters were all vivid and real. The author really does pull you into the story and it feels like you are experiencing it with the main character. I thought this was a well written book that is certainly worth your time.

Strega- Magic: The Spirit Never Dies by Lynne Russell.
I have read quite a few of this author’s books before and really enjoyed each and every one. This book is a bit of a departure from what I have come to expect- but just as well written and enjoyable as the others. It also has the humorous touches that I love about her books.
A romantic suspense with witches, history, magic, the paranormal, drama, reincarnation, betrayal, tragedy, and dramatic developments…. which kept me turning the pages to discover how everything played out in the end.
Looking forward to seeing what she does next.
Happy Reading!

Thank you, Lynne Russell!

Literally, this book had me under its spell! I had always had an interest in magic and all that goes along with it. I for one have always been a believer, and wondered on the history as well as what different kinds of magic existed. I was pulled right in, many things were going on, but it made the appeal more amazing!

The story of the awesome female courageous characters sold the deal for me right from the bat. All I got to meet while reading had different strengths and really showed how powerful they were, not just with the magic, but mentally minded. I loved that aspect. I was very much interested in the fact the book dealt with Italian Magic. It was all new to me and certainly brought on the intrigue! For me Annie was so easy to love as a character. She was the one who had to undergo a lot, and she came out stronger than I think both her and I thought possible. The story brought on action and everything gets explained as you read though! I do love a book that makes me question in the first few chapters, and I get answers later!

The pace was very easy flowing as I have said. The events that happened made the story take shape. I wish I was there with Annie, I would have had so many questions and wanted to partake in the experiences. The book was well thought out in terms of writing, I really enjoyed it. Its one I will be recommending to people as well. The history that came to light, more less the past, it was very visual for me and it made sense completely, and was a nice thing for the story I found. It was a wonderful, amazing, and magical read that was very enjoyed! The story brought everything, and delivered well!

This was a good read, it brought on emotions and suspense very well for me as well as the other adaptions I had gained from reading this book. I was intrigued more than I can put into words. The history was my favorite part and watching Annie grow and shape, and learning about the Italian magic and past and things happened was amazing to visualize! High recommendation for this amazing book!
