Overview

If Graylee Perez, "Lee", 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 Graylees to be his.

Nearly a year later, the council is on to 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 the two Graylees work together, they may stand a chance of setting things right and making it out alive.

Entangled introduced us to a world of witches and warlocks living amongst non-magical humans. Some of these Magi were good and some...eh, not so much. Graylee was the former while her twin sister Charlene was very much the latter. Charlene basically murdered her sister while sending another girl into a coma...all for the love of a boy. Graylee's soul, thanks to some pretty dark and dangerous magic, was able to survive and found it's way into Charlene's body. Which they shared for a time, until Graylee was able to find a body of her own with the help of her boyfriend Raj and a mysterious yet handsome and powerful warlock, Adrian. Phew, all caught up now? Fast forward several months and we find Gray in her new body, living a new life as Lee. Charlene has been banished to France (ooh, the punishment!!) and life is moving on for all involved. That is until the anniversary of Gray's death pops up and she wakes up in France. In Charlene's body. Again. But Lee is still alive and kicking too. Now there are two Graylee's, no Charlene's and one big bad scary Grim Reaper hell bent on restoring the balance. Oh yeah, there is also only one Raj...who both Lee and Gray love and he's having trouble remembering that they aren't quite the same person. Awkward! We get a much bigger dose of Adrian in Duplicity and for that, I thank you Nikki Jefford. Adrian isn't the goodliest of people, to say the least but there is something so lonely about him that I just totally fell for him. We hardly know anything about him and I so want to know more, more, more! I really loved Raj in Entangled but he lost some appeal in Duplicity. He's still a great guy, but the bad-boy side of him never showed and he was less exciting. Plus, his confusion and loyalties were all over the place. Which made it very easy for my attention to stay tuned to the relationship forming between Gray and Adrian. The concept that Jefford has developed with this series is so fantastical and entertaining, it's what peaked my interest to begin with and I love what she is doing with it. The struggle for Lee and Gray in Duplicity was fun to read. There is a jealousy but also extreme protectiveness, as they really are the same person. Everyone in their lives is confused by it and both girls end up with bruised feelings on several occasions because of it. How do you chose which Gray stays and which has to go? The choice may be made for them if they can't get their crap together and quit fighting each other. All in all, Duplicity was another fun ride and I can't wait to dig into Enchantment for more!

The second in this series, Duplicity was as good as the first. Now I'm off to read the final book which I'm sure will also be wonderfully entertaining.

Note: This review may contain some spoilers if you've not yet read Entangled. Duplicity is a wonderful followup to the first in Nikki Jefford's Spellbound Trilogy. Nikki's writing has clearly gotten stronger and makes this an even better read than Entangled. The story line involving the two Gray's is compelling and raises all the right questions. And poor Raj...I can't imagine how confusing that must have been for him trying to figure out how to act around both of them! I know that I had a hard time myself...alternately feeling sorry for one or the other, or rooting for one or the other! I loved the growth that the characters demonstrated since Entangled and throughout Duplicity. The reintroduction of Adrian Montes was a pleasant surprise as he is a complex and compelling character who I hope to see more of in the final installment of this series. I also hope that we learn a little bit more about his very mysterious past. With constant action and loads of mystery and suspense as well as plenty of fun, Duplicity draws you in and doesn't let go. I thoroughly enjoyed Duplicity and recommend the Spellbound series to any YA readers looking for a fun witchy read! Note: Duplicity does have a bit of mature content and is probably better suited to the older YA reader.

4.5 Stars I’ am one of those readers, who are scared of sophomore novels or the sequels; especially if the first book is really good. There were many sequels that I’ve read that didn’t shine like the first one. Well, Duplicity didn’t disappoint me. It is actually better than Entangled. The story and characters are unforgettable. I was captured and sucked inside. I didn’t want the story to end. After all the fiasco that happened to Graylee Perez, she is now settled to her new life. She now has a new body and currently in a relationship. The only thing that separates her from normal is her perplexed situation. She has a duplicate. Complicated much? In Duplicity, prepare for more Drama, Revelations and Vengeance. What happened to Charlene? And who made her a duplicate? You have to pick up this book to find out. The world building is good! The creativity behind the plot is astonishing. Nikki did it again. I love the duplicate concept. I mean, who would have thought that Graylee will face yet another drama. It was hard for her to share a body with Charlene, and now she has a duplicate of her old self. There were loads of nail-biting experiences for me, while I was reading this book. I was nervous due to the awkwardness of the situation between Graylee and her duplicate. Though, the awkwardness actually gave spice to the story. I was impressed on how Nikki pulled it off. As for the characters, they developed more in Duplicity. And the readers will get to know them better. Graylee is more mature here. She is strong-minded and courageous. Raj is my favorite character. I love his dedication to Graylee. He is dependable, smart and HANDSOME. I like his character because of his flaws. I understand why he was confused. I don’t blame him for his mistakes. Who would? There are two Graylee now. I also like Adrian. Yes, Adrian the Avenger. He is not so mysterious anymore. The contact will be revealed here too. The love-angle is fantastic! It is believable. I can’t really say that there is a love triangle since they are the same person. But the dialogues between Raj and Graylee gave butterflies to my stomach. Overall, Duplicity is a fun read! I recommend this book to paranormal lovers. Book Three please!!
