What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
Supernaturals are real, and seventeen-year-old Callie is the strongest of them all. As a Spirit Witch, she is a member of an ancient sect of witches that were wiped out millennia ago. She not only has control over the four elements, but also life and death itself, and she’s been tasked with maintaining balance within the mortal realm. No pressure.
At least her magic is finally unbound, so life should get easier and have a lot less exploding trees. Except, nothing is ever easy for Callie. Her magic wasn’t the only thing unbound. It’s getting harder to stay “just friends” with the guys—especially since they all seem interested in tasting her chapstick.
Not to mention Felix, her incorporeal best friend, decided to reject his door to the afterlife. This means he either blinks out of existence or Callie figures out how to use her powers to break the one natural law all supernaturals can agree on:
The dead need to stay dead.
In this paranormal reverse harem, join Callie on her journey as she discovers who she is, where she fits, what matters most, and which rules are meant to be broken in this world of things that go bump in the night.
This book contains graphic violence, adult language, mild sexual content including M/M, and deals in sensitive issues such as abuse, death, and PTSD. Reader discretion is advised.
Save Spirit is a full-length novel and is written with the intent that the reader is familiar with events that occurred in the previous books of the series.
The Bound Spirit Series is a 10 book Reverse Harem series that will cross from young adult to new adult content.
Thoughts on Save Spirit
We get much more of Felix this time around, which I was hoping for. He’s such a great character, both complex and compelling – as are the other guys in Callie’s unintentional harem. Even Connor – who, while incredibly quiet most of the time, still manages to steal the show when he does speak.
And don’t get me started on the other three! Love them. Love Callie. Frankly, I think I love them all, and book 4 is promising to be a dramatic mess to clean up three events of book 3. Whoah boy!
- Doesn’t feel like a YA, though it is, for now.
- Characters actually have depth.
- The Plot is in flex, though there is an underlying connection.
- Well written.
- Good length!!
- Good cover.
- Moral question was not answered the way one would expect…. makes for a better plot though.
First Person, Multiple POV
PG-15 heading towards R
Character Age Range
My Final Verdict on Save Spirit
Book 3 in a planned, lengthy, series finds the characters growing together, and in their respective powers. We learn more about them, even as they are learning about themselves. It’s emotional, ambiguous and plot heavy, laying the concrete groundwork for books to come. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
