    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. If I have to read the words “Katherine Shipton” or “smirk” again, I’ll scream. The story is good, but the verbiage and actual writing fall VERY flat. I was hopeful that the first book was that awkward settling in that every series has, but I’m beginning to think this really may be the authors writing style. She seriously needs a thesaurus and a few creative writing classes. Bella’s idea for this story is wonderful. However, her writing is very juvenile.

She seriously needs a thesaurus and a few creative writing classes. Bella’s idea for this story is wonderful. However, her writing is very juvenile. With incorrect use of common phrases (“in the wind” being one of them), consistent over-explanation of scenery and characters, use of the same descriptors and actions over and over, it’s very difficult to take this story or writer seriously. I really wanted to like these books, but unless the writing style changes, I will not be continuing with this series. It is understood that Young Adult is the genre, but that does not mean that poor writing styles should be excused. I felt the same with Twilight and 50 Shades of Gray. I tried to read them, but didn’t get past the first few chapters of the first books due to the terrible writing styles. Yet here they are, millions of copies and a load of movies later. It’s sad, but understandable I guess. Bella may be successful otherwise with her other books, which I will be checking out. I do hope that her writing style grows and that her vocabulary expands. It’s sad to see such good ideas wasted on bad writing.

    A fun, fast-paced paranormal fantasy read. I enjoyed this book more than book 1 because of the added POVs and politics. Plus, things got darker (in an obvious AND subtle way) and that’s my cup of tea!

    I might be addicted I really like this series. It has a strong female lead role and it’s nice to see a world that revolves around a girl!

    Harley Merlin and the Cursed Child Mystery Twins is the second in the series, and first sequel to its equally underwhelming urban fantasy predecessor Harley Merlin and the Secret Coven. If you haven't read the first book in the series, don't worry. The first couple chapters of this sequel are a very detailed recap, which makes starting this novel feel a lot like putting on a pair of waders and jumping into a lake of molasses. First off, in my review for the first novel, I expressed a desire for Harley Merlin and the Cursed Child Mystery Twins is the second in the series, and first sequel to its equally underwhelming urban fantasy predecessor Harley Merlin and the Secret Coven. If you haven't read the first book in the series, don't worry. The first couple chapters of this sequel are a very detailed recap, which makes starting this novel feel a lot like putting on a pair of waders and jumping into a lake of molasses. First off, in my review for the first novel, I expressed a desire for a deeper exploration of the foster system. I'd like to travel back in time by about 500 pages and punch myself in the face. This novel features the word foster (followed by kid / system / parent etc.) 62 times and boy oh boy do you feel every single one. Foster kids are a central plot of this novel, so this shouldn't really be a complaint, but I think it speaks to how clunky and uninspiring the writing is that you truly find the over use of 'foster kid' egregious. Because it's a main feature, you might think that it merits a deeper exploration of being in care, and the way that it truly did influence the central protagonist's quest to find somewhere that she belongs, and I believe it was supposed to, but instead it just seems to cause a load of "You don't know what it's LIKE" wankery from Harley, our main protagonist. Disappointing. I say main protagonist because, joy of joys, we're joined by a new narrator! Tatyana is a Russian witch with the ability to communicate with the dead. We were introduced to her in the first novel, but she lost all interesting qualities as soon as we got inside her head and she turned out to be Harley 2.0. This is a serious problem with the author's attempt to include a second narrator. We, the reader, should be able to tell the two perspectives apart without relying on having noticed the chapter heading telling you whose POV you're in. If you are truly enthralled, you often skip extraneous headings. Even if you're not actually enthralled, you still glance over them. Louise Erdich, in her novel Tracks is a really great example of code switching between two narrators without using a trick of a different font, but rather tense and language. In Patrick Ness's Monsters of Men there are three separate narrators and even though font sets them apart visually, they are linguistically unique from one another and each equally engaging. In this novel, however, Tatyana and Harley narrate in the exact same way, and it was often only some way into the chapter I'd actually realise that they'd switched. Tatyana also had markedly fewer chapters to focus on her story. It seems that rather than having two equal narratives, the split narrator was a lazy trick to avoid having to logistically explain several occurrences from Harley's POV. If Taty had a more distinct voice that reflected her background, this would have probably been less of an issue. Fundamentally, I find her more interesting than Harley. Harley was not my favourite protagonist in the first book, as she teetered on the precipice of being a mary sue. By this one, she has toppled over the top. She's got potential to be one of the most powerful witches ever, the big bad is gunning for her personally, and even the interesting backstory of her father murdering her mother (it's not a spoiler if the book description already mentioned it) is suddenly "Oh well he was CURSED. He didn't TRULY MEAN IT." clearing up the potential for drama this early in the series is a bit predictable. We've still to meet the series' Big Bad but we get two minor villains this time and what can I really say except they were interesting enough until the final showdown where they turned into a standard over-confident, quippy, wisecracking archetype of a villain and I was left feeling "oh wow is that really my lot?" We've all see it done before. This was nothing exciting or new. I will also say that one of the fundamental issue with the villain in this novel, that is to say, KATHERINE SHIPTON, SCARIEST NAME IN THE WEST (don't worry if you forget, she's mentioned by name 146 times -- 87 of those in full, first and surname), is that it's two books in and it's still not exactly clear what her deal is. There's mention of Darkness and Light and that she wants to be Child of Chaos , but that's all just words. We're trying to stop her but I'm not sure WHY. To expand on this, let's zoom out to some of the advertising for this book. "Harry Potter for Grown Ups", as I've seen it touted. However, it seems so desperate to Not Be Harry Potter that it rips off some things from that series whilst glancing over the aspects of worldbuilding that make Harry Potter and, particularly, its villain work. The books fumble through explaining the makeup of "magical" society and the coven system, but when you break it all down it seems to be Whatever Is Convenient at Any Given Time. We don't see a lot of it, and when we do it doesn't seem to work well. Therefore, the disassembly of this society doesn't seem like a high enough stake. In Harry Potter you realise that a victory for Voldemort means a facist dictatorship that puts muggles (a position you, the reader, can generally relate with) on the bottom rung of society, followed by the persecution of muggle-borns (Hermione is the main character you have for reference here; a likeable character who is also the best and brightest sort of witch, and would be punished for no reason under Voldemort's regime), and positions people like the Malfoys (who at face value, come across as generally unpleasant) at the top of society. And despite the slow reveal of the depth of Voldemort's plans, over the course of the books, the characters and conflicts are established from the get go. At first the stakes are laid out: Harry stopped Voldemort's plans as a baby, Voldemort will try and kill Harry again as soon as he has power. Hermione is looked down upon by Draco Malfoy-- and specific muggle born related slurs exist in this society. Though it is over the next few books that more is revealed, the way society operates is present from the beginning. For Harley Merlin, however, there are no clear answers as to what is at stake and why we should care, because things are all over the place. Instead of starting with a simple conflict, we're thrown in at the deep end when we are not particularly invested. Our "misfits" aren't misfits at all. They're all physically powerful, and several have family in high places. What does Katherine's takeover threaten to change for them? What does she really represent? What does any of this "Child of Chaos" nonsense really MEAN? Thanks for coming to my Ted talk. Also just in case you got down this far, the book is poorly written. The ideas aren't bad but the presentation of the whole story is hampered by how lacklustre it is presented. No one wants purple prose, but it is nice to get some flair. Whilst it is grammatically sound, the style is simplistic to the point of being dull. There's a lot of telling and not showing, and as I already hinted, a LOT of repetitive use of language and certain words. Put it this way, when I was at 93% complete, I forced myself to listen to Tubthumping by Chumbawamba on repeat until it was finished. I listened to it 5 or 6 times in its entirety and still almost couldn't power through the last 5% which really didn't need to be included in this book, but rather exists to try and force the reader to buy the next one in the series. Well. I get knocked down. But I get up again.

    Overall a fun read, although I didn't enjoy it as much as the first. Sadly, it gave into the trope of a character withholding information to protect others when common sense called for the opposite. I didn't enjoy the changing perspectives very much - the two characters' voices were too similar and I had to keep going back to the start of the chapter to remind myself whose perspective I was in. The storyline's mysteries were intriguing and the action was well-paced. I've moved onto the third boo Overall a fun read, although I didn't enjoy it as much as the first.

    This one dragged!!!!! It took until about 60 percent for anything truly interesting to happen, we had to Povs Harley and another group member Tatyana basically doing the same thing for the better first half of the book, looking for fostered magics, who had been visited also by a mysterious duo. It did pick up and once it did... an easy 5 star read... its just a shame about the first 60%

    This second book had way too much of a recap at the beginning. It was written as if the reader had skipped the first book, but that is very annoying IMO since it is a series. The reader should be expected to read in order and not waste two or more chapters being spoonfed. I also didn't really care for the swapping of viewpoints. I'd rather just get Harley's viewpoint. The other characters are cool, but I don't need their views. I felt like I was getting cheated out of the main storyline. I've rea This second book had way too much of a recap at the beginning.

I've read other books where I liked getting multiple POVs, but for some reason I resented the swaps in this book. Also, I wanted more time with Harley and Wade. This is written as a YA, so I totally get the slow burn approach. At the same time, that shouldn't mean they can't have more scenes just between them. They could just go out to eat more, or something. More friend time and almost date time would have been better than the side plot with Tatyana. Still, once I got past the recap and the plot actually started, this book was almost as good as the first. I look forward to starting the third book.

    I enjoyed this book. It was a good sequel to Harley Merlin and the Secret Coven, and continued the story. I loved the magic present, which is very interesting. I also am really enjoying getting to know all of the characters and their pasts and what makes them tick. I'm happy Wade and Garrett might be getting past some of their issues. Overall, I thought this book was well written and highly entertaining, with a good mystery. 4 stars. Oh, and (view spoiler)[Harley has a power suppressor, which is I enjoyed this book.

    The Ryder twins target Magicals in foster homes as part of Katherine's plot against the covens. Harley's emotional decision to keep the kids with their family has consequences they must overcome. I was frustrated in this read. So many obvious things they did wrong, decisions that were ludicrous. And the big finale of hurting Harley could have been done in the beginning of the book, therefore making most of this read pointless. If the next one is not more organized, I don't think I will be contin The Ryder twins target Magicals in foster homes as part of Katherine's plot against the covens.

    I enjoyed this book - to a degree. What annoyed me was the 'incompetence' of the people responsible for keeping the kids/human parents safe from the twins (Katherine Shipton). It was often like an episode of Keystone Cops. I felt like they should have contained the situation better - the Mage Council be damned!

    Good Read All in all this was a good read. Harley has a lot of room for improvement. She really got on my nerves with her impulsive behavior and total lack of respect for the rules. I was glad to have more than just her point of view but I would have liked to have Wade's as well. Hopefully I'll get that in the next book....

    Wade explained, then took out a handkerchief—because that’s the kind of guy he was, all suited up and always carrying a monogramed handkerchief around—and handed it to Tatyana, who tied it around her bleeding forearm. Before going any further, I wanted to make note that this book (at least at the time of this review) is available on Kindle Unlimited to read for free. This was the medium I chose to read this book. Overall, I liked this book, though not quite as much as the first one for a couple of Wade explained, then took out a handkerchief—because that’s the kind of guy he was, all suited up and always carrying a monogramed handkerchief around—and handed it to Tatyana, who tied it around her bleeding forearm. Before going any further, I wanted to make note that this book (at least at the time of this review) is available on Kindle Unlimited to read for free. This was the medium I chose to read this book. Overall, I liked this book, though not quite as much as the first one for a couple of reasons. The first reason being that there was too much time spent recapping relevant events from the first book — as if to assume the reader skipped the first book entirely. Granted, I appreciate a small synopsis recap as much as the next person, especially if there's been significant time between reading books, but it was too lengthy to the point where I felt like I hadn't gotten anywhere significant in the second book for a number of chapters. Secondly, I wasn't quite a fan that despite the evident slow burn between two particular characters (if you read the first book this certainly isn't a spoiler, though purposely left vague just in case), I would have liked to see more interactions between them only them as you'd seen in the first book. I look forward to them eventually figuring out they're pining for each other and figure out how to awkwardly make moves on one another, but I hope that's done in a natural, pragmatic manner and not haphazardly. I quite like the POV swap between Harley and Tatyana. Given that we didn't really get a chance to get to know the individuals in the Rag team individually/up close and personally in the first book, I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to see Tatyana's character fleshed out in more depth. Equally, I'm curious if we'll see any additional POV character switches in future books. Rewinding a little bit to my review of the first book, if you want something paranormal/magical that's clearly aimed at a Young Adult audience with Harry Potter nostalgic feels intertwined, I suspect you may enjoy this book!

I’m not sure if it’s because I knew the characters already or because I had two POV’s. Not exactly the two I wanted but more POV’s the better.

I always find it interesting how different authors can conceive different versions of magic systems and make it so believable. Okay so Harley is back in this one and while she knows who is out to get her in the world, she is not quite sure how they will go about it. I loved getting to meet more of Harley’s “family” in this book. You could just tell how much they cared about her and her wellbeing. Meeting up with her family of course leads to her having secrets from the coven and mostly Wade which is a big deal. These secrets are always going to come back to haunt people. Of course, what Harley isn’t getting is that the group of people in her coven is also her family. I loved the idea that she may or may not be held back some how from being a full witch. I’m wondering how the author will sort that out in future books. I’m kind of interested to see how her relationship with Wade may or may not pan out. (this is soooo slow burn) Also I loved how she mended the fences between Wade and his ex BFF 😉 All in all a really great second book in the series, I’m kind of more excited to see what the third book has to bring and what new magical elements this author has to throw at us. find more reviews at Alwaysbooking.wordpress.com

    It took me over a month to finish this book, purely because I was so unmotivated to read it - however, once I did eventually get started, it was quick to whizz through. Though it isn't the most compelling book in the world, it gives me an old-era Wattpad book vibe in that it is just interesting enough to keep you sucked in, and trying to figure out what is going to happen next.

Yes, the writing is juvenile, yes the characters seem to fall along the same lines and there is very little about them that is actually compelling, but you can't help but read on anyway. It's a guilty pleasure in its purest form - though I can recognise it isn't good, the writing is kind of trashy and the plot is all over the place, you can't help but want to finish it anyway just to see how the story will progress. One thing that really did bug me though was the magic system - I don't feel like the Light/Dark distinction was explained very well, and hopefully that will be explained in future books. Also, it seems to be a mish-mash of everything, and by trying to include so many elements and not explaining the vast majority of them properly it just becomes overrun and confusing. Then, of course, there is the ridiculous amount of powers Harley has - running towards a Mary Sue type character. Still, I'm interested enough to read on and find out what happens next in the fight against Katherine Shipton, and how the search for the missing magical children will go.

I like Harley Merlin and expect to enjoy the entire series, though I think the books are short and rely a bit too much on a cliff hanger.

It was funny but messed up and actually really believable behavior for young boys. It’s nice to see them working towards mending their friendship. The additions of Isadora and Jacob were quite nice. I like seeing Harley’s family grow and learning more secrets from the past. I’m fairly sure Papa Merlin was not a bad guy but I’m curious to see how everything actually happened. The ending was bittersweet. Our main characters make it out (beaten up but alive); unfortunately, Crazy Aunt Kate was able to get away with multiple murders and kidnappings. So sad. I also feel really sorry for the Smiths and Harley’s guilt over their situation. Overall, a great continuation here! I’m torn between binging the whole series now and taking a short break to check other books in my TBR list. We’ll see what happens.
