Since Morgen Keller arrived in the small town of Bellrock, she’s learned that magic is real, fought battles with werewolves, and managed to turn the local witches into enemies. As an introverted database programmer, she’s not equipped to handle any of this.
Fortunately, she has an ally: the fearsome werewolf Amar.
Unfortunately, one of the witches branded him and can take control of him whenever she wishes.
To have a chance of freeing her werewolf ally, Morgen must learn to harness the power she inherited from her grandmother. She may also have to find a familiar, confront a powerful witch, and admit that she has feelings for Amar. What could go wrong?
After I finished the first book I decided I wanted more and dove right into book 2, which I rarely do, but it worked well this time. I really enjoyed Spell Hound and enjoyed spending more time listening to Morgan and Amar and the problems they’re dealing with in this book. There’s also more of Morgan learning about her witchy powers and some werewolf and witchy trouble as well.
I had a lot of fun listening to this book. I liked seeing how Morgan learned more about her witchy powers and worked to get a familiar and work on her first talisman as well. I liked reading about how she handled everything and tried out new things. I also appreciate how she doesn’t instantly knows a lot, she still only knows very little of being a witch and I like seeing her figure things out. Her banter with Amar is great to read about and I liked seeing them slowly grow closer in this book. There’s a clear connection now and I like the hostility between is less in this book and there’s more of them connecting and growing closer. There are some nice things they do for each other and I liked seeing that.
There is also more danger in the form of both werewolves and witches that come at Morgan and Amar in this book. and I liked seeing how they dealt with it. There’s more about both witches and werewolves as well as their place in the town. And I liked how Morgan meets some possible allies in the form of a possible friendly werewolf and witch in this book, showing that not all witches and werewolves in town are the same.
To summarize: This was a great sequel! I liked listening to it and how this book delved deeper into a lot of the topics that got introduced in book 1. I liked seeing Morgan learn more about her witchy powers with her attempting to find a familiar and make a talisman. And her relationship with Amar slowly deepens, which was fun to see, I like their banter and seeing them grow closer. They have a clear connecting and I like seeing them grow to care about the other and do nice things for each other and work together. There is more werewolf and witchy trouble as well. And more possible allies, which was interesting. All in all I had a lot of fun listening to this book and look forward to the next one.
