Review: "Duplicity (Spellbound #2)" by Nikki Jefford

Duplicity by Nikki Jefford. Published May 20th, 2012 by Nikki Jefford. 280 pages (ebook version). Source: Purchased from Amazon. My Rating: 5/5 Stars.

If Graylee Perez thought sharing a body with her twin sister was bad, dealing with a duplicate of herself is two times worse. Gray the second doesn’t seem to get that Lee’s boyfriend, Raj McKenna, is off limits. Then there’s the problem of Adrian Montez. He expects one of the Grays to be his.

Nearly a year later, the council is onto them for past misdeeds; Lee, along with the rest of the coven, has lost control of her powers; and Gray is being stalked by what looks like the Grim Reaper.

If they work together, they may stand a chance of setting things right and making it out alive.

My Review

What an AMAZING sequel to Entangled. Nikki Jefford weaves an amazing story. I think this story really upset me. While reading, I would make note that I was pissed off. Not at the writing or the story. It's a great story! The characters and the situations they get themselves into. Have you ever been watching a horror movie where the killer is coming after the female victim and as she's running, she keeps looking back, screaming, and trips over nothing? Yeah, that's the sort of aggravation I was feeling here. There was one thing I was really excited about in this story: Charlene wasn't in it. NO, that's not a spoiler. What it is is an amazing turn of events that left me a happy reader. If there's one character that grinds my gears it's Charlene. I wish I knew her in real life because I'd do her in. Now, I know that the trilogy wouldn't be what it is without her so I'm not expecting her to be out of the equation for long, but it was refreshing not to have to encounter her slutty behavior while more important things are going on in the world around her. It was also really nice to see how Lee and Raj grew through the year since Graylee 'died'. This is just an amazing paranormal YA. I'd love to add 'contemporary' to that, but I'm still not sure. There was alot more love going around in this book. I absolutely loved this book and I can't wait until April for Enchantment. I hope it comes out on the 21st, my birthday!
