Spell Struck is the second book in the Teen Wytche series. Most of the characters are back from Spell Check plus a lot of new ones.
The characters drew me into the story so much I admit to crying in a few places both happy and sad tears. There is plenty of drama, real problems like teen suicide, I like how Salem worried about her sister read the warnings signs of teen depression.
This book starts right after the last one finished pretty much. It is Salem who is one of the central characters. Salem meets a new boy in school who fits the love spell she wrote. Her older sister Amy has problems and Salem's whole family is worried about her.
Aidan 15 wants to go to school. He is homeless and the couple that took him in are not nice. Kali a older teen who lives with them tries to help Aidan where she can. Aidan is a artist that works with wood. He has a lot of secrets.
Salem has the Grimoire. It is in bad shape and smells of brimstone. She wants to heal or fix it and hopes there is a spell to heal her sister Amy.
The reason Aidan and his kidnappers are in town is because they think the Gypsy spell book is here. They think Aidan will be the key to finding it. Aidan & Kali don't believe that it really exists. They don't want them to find it if it does. They are living in a foreclosed home. Without water, electricity and heat. Makes you glad for your home.
The setting is outside of San Fransico, CA is a community. In modern times. A lot of the book centers on there schooling.
It is a book that I did not want to put down. I want to know what happens next to these characters lives. I really did enjoy the ending of this book. I know that are a lot of them back in the second half of the third book.
I was given this ebook to read by the author so I could give it a honest review of Spell Struck.

I hadn’t read teen witch stories for years before I read Spell Check, now I’m in love with them all over again and Spell Struck is no exception. I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about Salem, and getting to know Aidan whilst reading from each of their perspectives as the tale unfolded. There are so many levels to this story, and no matter what the reader’s age I’m positive it would still be enjoyable for all YA paranormal lovers. I can’t wait to see what’s next in store in this series.
I received an e-copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Spell Struck (Teen Wytche Saga #2)
By Ariella Moon
5 Stars, Crowned Heart for Excellence
InD'Tale Magazine Review by Sarah E.Bradley
"A fantastic YA paranormal read, reminiscent of the film "Practical Magic"! Spell Struck combines quirky but fun teen characters dealing with new schools, romance, and family problems, with magic, and more serious topics like suicide and kidnapping."
"Readers who haven't read "Spell Check" will want to go back and read it, just to enjoy more of Salem and her fun friends. Any reader who enjoys YA paranormal should definitely add "Spell Struck" to their list!"
