    Time machine

    I am really beside myself waiting for this book to come out. Completely different style from the chicagoland vampire books but so very much the same in that the characters are so beleiveable, even though they are written in an au fantasy version of our reality. I have gotten several others hooked on this too!

    Must Read Series

    I loved this next installment and I am already waiting for the next. I cannot wait to see more development between Lily and Sebastian...as I believe they should be together. Can't wait for more!

    I was very eager to read Charmfall - book #3 in the Dark Elite s

    I was very eager to read Charmfall - book #3 in the Dark Elite series because I found the first two, Firespell and Hexbound witty and suspenseful. Since I’m reviewing the 3rd in the series I’ll start with a little catch up…

    Lily Parker the main character, has had it rough to say the least. In book one her parents uprooted her from her New York home and planted her at St. Sophia’s boarding school in Chicago. Before she knows it, Lily is thrust into the middle of a feud between Adepts (magical teens) and other underworld-like creatures. It’s important to note that the “underworld” is actually the slimy sewer tunnels (literally, there’s slime…) buried beneath Chicago.

    In this world various people develop gifts (magic) in most cases, when they are younger. Some powers include the ability to control elements, cast spells, and even manipulate technology. A drawback happens later in life when one’s gift begins to dissipate into nothing. However, there is a way to maintain it… some choose to become what is known as reapers who are able to maintain their power by “reaping” the energy out of others and then leaving their victims in a sort of “empty-shell” state. It is therefore the adept’s mission to fight the reapers and protect them from being reaped.

    I won’t go into too much detail as to ruin the first two book’s plots, but due to some extraordinary circumstances Lily learns that she really belongs at St. Sophia’s. Along the way she picks up some great friends including her ever witty and totally-lovable suite-mate, Scout, a dozen or so enemies, and 2 note-worthy crushes.

    One thing that I think Chloe Neill does particularly well is portraying teenagers, especially when it comes to writing dialogue. Here’s a small excerpt from Charmfall.

    “If you wake up,” I said, “I’ll let you wear my fuzzy boots-those ones you really like? And I won’t complain when you take my chocolate muffin anymore at breakfast. You can have it every day from now on. I swear-just wake up, okay?”

    Lily, pg. 18

    Another aspect of this book series that I love so much is the deep and intriguing characters Ms. Neill has created. Lily is very strong, emotionally. Again and again she witnesses and participates in dangerous situations (sometimes life or death) and yet still manages to get out of bed each morning. She is extraordinary in the sense that she is able to see the world in shades of grey versus the black & white the reapers and adepts believe in.

    Another great character of course is, Scout. Although in the beginning of the books she couldn’t see the “big picture” with help from Lily however, she is quickly evolving into an even more complex character. She’s now realizing that there’s more to the magical power struggle they battle, the “white” way isn’t always the right way.

    Like the first two, Charmfall picks up close to where the previous left off and then undergoes a decent pacing. However, unlike the books before, you see a different dynamic between the adepts and the reapers. There’s a new enemy in town and this time it’s affecting both factions of the underworld. This forces and creates a surprising alliance in order to achieve a similar goal.

    There’s a couple questions answered, and like always, a half-dozen more created. Sometimes book sequels can take a dip but this isn’t true for Charmfall. It’s full of twists and adventures and leaves you guessing like the two before.

    I only have one real quip with this book. As a TEAM SEBASTIAN fan, I was sad to only see him in a few parts. Hopefully in the next installment he’ll get some more line-time.

    A couple questions I hope get answered in the next book or at least begin to:

    What the heck is Lily’s parents really doing in Europe?
    Will Jason have the ability to fight the customs that are threatening him from leading a life of his own choosing?
    How is Veronica going to react when she discovers or possibly (remembers) who/what her new dream man is?

    I was disappointed! I love her Chicagoland series but this one has no depth. I know it's intended for a younger audience but this was way to tame. What really makes it bad is how short a story it is for the amount being charged. Total rip off!

    Absolutely wonderful series that is filled with action, suspense, adventure, romance and supernaturals. :)

    Hoping that there will be a 4th book, just needs a demand for it. I cannot wait to read more about these characters so fingers are definitely crossed for another book.
