Moon Spun, Book 3, The Unbidden Magic Series by Marilee Brothers

Publisher:  Bell Bridge Books
Pages:  246

(Released:  July 1, 2010)

From the Cover:

Junior's back from Mexico with his movie-star entourage. Beck's using his half-demon charms to "heal" a new girl. Mom's still wacky and now she's dating Principal Hostetler. High school is still an obstacle course of drama queens, bullies and nutjobs. The Trimarks are still a menace, and the moonstone pendant has revealed even more mind-boggling powers.

In other words, Allie Emerson's life as the Girl Voted Least Likely To Save The World From Evil has gone from Weird to Super-Charged Super-Weird, and it's about to get even weirder. You're a faery princess. So says the mysterious Ryker, whose handsome talents include turning himself into a hawk. By the way, he and Allie are destined to marry. In faery land--Boundless. If they can save it from forces even more deadly than Trimarks and high school.

The third book in the Unbidden Magic series plunges readers into a rich other-world of danger, humor, romance, fable, fairytale and magical destiny. 

Excerpt from the author's website:

If you thought Allie’s life couldn’t get any more complicated...

As I followed Ryker into the faery kingdom he called Boundless, the ground beneath us began to shake, and a voice that sounded like living thunder boomed, “You dare to bring this mortal into our world?”

I clapped my hands over my ears, frantically looking around for the source of the fearsome noise. Oh, this can’t be good, Allie. I made a move toward Ryker. Strangely, he was grinning like crazy and pointed to the pool and waterfall. “Over there.”

I took a cautious step forward. All at once, something burst from the water, reared back and let loose with an ear-splitting bellow so frightening, I screamed in terror. The ground shook harder. Or maybe it was my legs. I froze in my tracks, even though my brain said, “Run, Allie, Run!”
The creature looked like a humongous black horse with moss-covered green scales growing out of its back, flaring nostrils and water weeds tangled in its flowing mane. Its mouth was open, exposing large, slime-green teeth.

“What... is... that... thing?” I gasped.

 “Allie, meet Uncle Davey. Uncle Davey, this is Allie,” Ryker said calmly, as if I’d been invited for Sunday dinner to meet and greet the family.

In this installment of the Unbidden Magic Series, Allie Emerson's life takes on a whole new meaning.  And it's almost unbelievable, if you didn't know Allie that is. It seems in this continuation of the story that Allie, for the first time ever, get to meet her grandmother.  And she nothing like what she's expecting.  Most peoples grandmothers are sweet little old ladies who like baking cookies. Not so with Allie's grandmother.  She a Faery Queen, and Allie is a Faery Princess destined to marry another faery, Ryker.

All this as Junior strolls back into her life, some Mexican movie God complete with an entourage, and Beck decides to pay a visit... can things get anymore complicated? And not only that.... Principal Hostetler's son isn't who he appears to be... it seems Faery has paid a visit before.

Moon Spun by Marilee Brothers is the continuation of Allie's adventures, and this one is wilder than all the others. Allie has always wondered about her grandmother, her own mother hardly mentions her, but Allie can tell, it part of the reason why Fay is the way she is. When Ryker shows up, blazing down the world on his motorcycle, Allie doesn't know what to think.  He's bold, taking her for a ride, even though Fay would have a stroke.  But when Ryker tells her they have to return to some mystical wonderland called Boundless, to save it if they can, Allie is up to her eyes in trouble once again.

Moon Spun is the third installment in this series that keeps growing.  Allie is off on another wild adventure, and just so she doesn't miss anything important, Faery magic allows her to freeze time, at least temporarily. She doesn't want Fay to worry and end up thinking Allie has left her to her own devices.  This is one series that everyone will enjoy reading, there's action, adventure, myths and legend of Faery long since lost.  If you have the opportunity, this is an excellent series for the young reader, just becoming enchanted with books as well as some adults, still willing to remember high school, cliches, and dastardly antics. It's a fun filled adventure story that was hard to put down.  All YA paranormal romance lovers should give this one a peek.  Perfect reading on those lazy Winter afternoon when you can't escape the house, and I guess that would hold true for Summer as well.

I received this ebook from the publisher, Belle Bridge Books.  All opinions expressed are my own.
