What to do When Your Twin Sister’s an Evil Bitch!
I had already read Nikki Jefford’s novella Spellbound in the anthology Death by Chocolate last month, and was delighted to read the full version of this witchy tale.
It kept me hooked until the last line and I was only sorry it ended so soon. This is a great story about teenage witches. Spirited and sassy, Graylee is the complete opposite of her popular and shallow twin Charlene. When the battle between these sisters kicks off, I was rooting for Graylee. She’s spunky and brave, simply a great character to read. I enjoy stories to do with magic and witches, so it’s no surprise I loved this.
Entangled Review It was great to have more time with Graylee and her love interest Raj in Entangled. This novel is so well-written and entertaining that I flew through it. When we first meet the twins, Charlene is in full melodramatic mode, threatening to throw herself off the roof of McKinley high school. Yep, this is also the name of the high school in Glee, and the tv show is mentioned frequently throughout the story. Level-headed and down-to-earth Graylee talks her sister down, and ends up being late for class. She uses an invisibility spell to hide her tardiness but is noticed by Raj, the bad boy with attitude who wants to know all her tricks. They seem to have an immediate dislike for each other, but we all know how that’s going to go.
Unfortunately, before Gray and Raj can spend anymore time together, Gray wakes up one morning in her sister’s body. She has no memory of dying and is now stuck sharing Charlene’s body until her mother can fix her resurrection spell. Charlene being the bitchy and selfish girl that she is, is not too happy to be sharing her body with her sis. The ultimate battle for survival ensues, and luckily for us readers it’s exciting, nail-biting and utterly entertaining.
You’ll love Gray’s tough attitude and sarky sense of humour. She figures the worst thing that could happen to a young person has already happened to her, i.e death, allowing her to channel fear and frustration into determination and self-confidence. The troubled Raj is also a delightful change from the typical breed of bad boy heroes.
Entangled is great, magical fun. Go read it today! It’s sure to brighten up your Monday evening. It’s also book one in a trilogy; yay for those of us who fell in love with the characters!

Q: The witches and warlocks in Entangled share basic magical abilities. They also know advanced spells of their own. If you could choose one of the following powers, which would it be?
– The power to freeze people in place and take away their voice – Body transfers – Invisibility – Teleportation – or Mind reading?
I’d go for mind reading. How about you?
This question is easy. I’m always saying how much time we waste traveling. My favorite power would be teleportation!
I hate the travel part of travelling: buses, trains… so yep, Teleportation would be excellent.
Mine would be invisibility! What fun you could have!! Be careful of the mind reading Emma!!-remember what happened Buffy in Earshot?!! 😉 😀
She went crazy I know. I’d only like to be able to read minds if I could control it, like Sookie from True Blood. What would you do with your power of invisibility Laura? I’m curious 🙂
That would be telling!!!!! 😉
Teleportation would be really awesome, thanks! 🙂
It so would!
As a mom, the idea of freezing people and taking away their voice definitely holds some appeal. But I’d have to say teleportation would be very cool. Almost as good as flying. You wouldn’t have to be afraid of falling or anything. I think mind-reading would be very useful if you were a cop.
Definitely going to look up Entangled. Good review, Emma!
Flying! Now there’s a magical power I’d love. Thanks for stopping by Trish.
Great review! Well done! 🙂
