Overview

They’ll never believe him back at school when he tells them how he spent his summer vacation...
 
In this novella follow-up to Bewitching Season and Betraying Season, 16-year-old Charles Leland is not looking forward to his summer holidays from Eton—not when he has to spend them cramming history to make up for a less-than-stellar grade last term. Even the thought of staying with his sister Persy and her husband Lochinvar while his parents are in Ireland can’t cheer him up.
 
But studying quickly takes a back seat to finding out what has happened to Persy, who disappears from home the day he arrives. All signs indicate that she’s been kidnapped by gypsies…but a gypsy boy named Nando convinces Charles that her disappearance has a much more otherworldly explanation.
 
Now Charles must brave the perils and sheer strangeness of the fairy lands to try to save Persy from being forcibly married to a powerful fairy lord, with the help of the fairy lord’s own younger (and alarmingly pretty) sister, a copy of History and Policy of the Norman and Angevin Kings that he must read before September, and Her Majesty Queen Victoria. But will he also be able to rescue himself?

    I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
    As a fan of the Leland Sisters books Betraying Season and Bewitching Season, I was pleased to have an opportunity to review another one of Marissa Doyle's works Charles Bewitched. This novella follows Persy's and Pen's little brother Charles, now sixteen years old, as he spends his summer break from school with Persy and her husband. As soon as he arrives at their estate, he finds Persy is missing. The hunt for her leads Charles into the fairy lands where he finds his sister is being forced to marry a fairy lord. Now it is up to him to find a way to reunite his sister with her real husband, and that's proving to be a difficult task.
    It was fun to catch up with the Lelands and jump back into their world. Charles has grown up a lot since we last saw him in the books about his sisters, but he still carries a youthful enthusiasm for learning more about his magic and the magic in the world around him. I love the way the author weaves in historical details that gives her pieces authenticity, but also how she puts her own magical spin on them. Charles Bewitched is a fun and fantastical read!

    I received this book from the author free of charge in exchange

    I received this book from the author free of charge in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank Marissa Doyle for this opportunity. I will start with saying I have not previously read any of the books in the Leland Sisters series. It is my understanding that they can all be read as stand alone books. Charles Bewitched is a short novella and the last of the Leland Sisters series.

    Charles is just coming home for his summer holidays to find out that something has been going on with his older sister Persy, who he is going to stay with while his parents are in Ireland visiting his other sister Pen. The day he comes home is the day Persy goes missing and the adventure begins. I quickly fell in love with the cast of characters and how each one brings something interesting to the story. Charles quickly finds out what has happened to his sister and will not stop until he figures out a way to get her back from the ones who have taken her.

    Let me just say I love any books containing fairies and this one did not disappoint! I really enjoyed the story the author wove and the way it flowed even in a short novella ,which usually leaves a lot unanswered but not this one. Marissa Doyle did an amazing job of telling the story and tying up all the loose ends in the series.

    I have to admit, this was my first time to read any of her works and now I can’t wait to go back and read this whole
    series!
