A sensational sequel full of inspired imaginative concepts and enchanting wonders!

Having been blown-away by Markelle Grabo’s incredible debut novel “The Elf Girl” I could not wait to delve into the next instalment of this exciting series! ‘The spell master’ is a brilliantly conceived creation and fantastic follow-up, full of fun and thrilling drama that takes you on the most extraordinary adventure. Addictive and unputdownable, book 2 is a wonderfully wrought saga containing a cast of captiva

I loved it. I think it is better than book one and I loved book one. The only sad thing is I have to wait for book three now. I am hooked for sure.

I can say that there's a vast improvement at the same time I was becoming emotional towards the end.

We finally learned the big secret of Ramsey. It was something I never expected. It was like a double secret. I should have known about at least partially of it because there were some forshadowed moments but I never paid any attention to it.

Ramsey's life wasn't any easier especially when she discovered her big secret. What was nice about this was she finally knew her true feelings for a certain so
The Spell Master is a great follow up to Journey into the Realm. It is a fun, adventurous fantasy that you won't want to put down.

Ramsey is excited to start school in the elf realm but a little sad because her boyfriend Stellan is off fighting in the war. She desperately wants to find out her secret but her sister Zora refuses to tell her. Ramsey finds that school in the elf realm is so much more fun and interesting than in the human realm. She makes new friends the first day, including one of w

The Spell Master is the 2nd novel of the Journey Into the Realms series that follows a young elf named Ramsey. As this novel begins, she's settling into a peaceful life as an elf and beginning school in order to perfect her skill. Her boyfriend, Stellan, is away at war, and she meanwhile begins a friendship with Nathan, aka the Stranger. Throughout the book, Ramsey deals with an internal war until something more important occurs.

The Spell Master is such a nice follow up to The Elf Girl. The Journey Into the Realm series improves with each book. The Spellmaster was so well written. It continues with the story of Ramsey, the Elf Girl. After leaving the human realm to save her sister Zara, Ramsey has to adapt and learn more about the Elf Realm. She attends school and makes new friends that help her with the adjustment. She also learns more about her weaknesses and her strengths as she grows and matures as an elfen. Her lov ...more

After rescuing her sister from the fairies, Ramsey now has to make a life for herself in the Elf realm. Which includes learning how to control her blossoming powers; and to finally discover the big secret that caused her parents to leave her in the human realm for fifteen years.

The Spell Master is the second in the Journey into the Realm series (you can read my review of the first book - The Elf Girl). I was offered a free copy as part of Shut Up & Read's read & review.

So much drama...but in a "I-must-know-what-happens-next" sorta way. ^_^

Ramsey is the elfen girl we've grown to love over the course of book one; in book two, we find her adjusting to her reclaimed life in the Elf Realm...with a slew of new problems about to befall her. Finn, the dangerous and evil Element Fairy, is still after her. Zora, the elfen sister she rescued, is treating her like a stranger not family, holding her at arms length and still withholding the BIG secret that concerns Ramsey h

How would you feel if there was a secret about you that was hazardous to your health yet your sister refused to tell you, frustrated, angry and determined to find the answer? Welcome to Ramsay's world as if finding out she wasn't human and indeed part elf wasn't stressful enough, Element fairies had her on the top of their "Most Wanted" list. Struggling to deal with all the changes in her life, Ramsay seeks solace in her friendship with Nathan the handsome stranger whereby her affections for Ste ...more

Firstly I would like to say a massive thank you to the author for letting me review this book as I did the previous book.

I've got such mixed feelings about the book, I won't lie but I did find it slow starting, that may be me though as my head can be busy at times. However I loved it, and the last paragraph was a OMG what? How?

I love the character Ramsey and am looking forward to seeing her develop even more in the next book. Her relationships and how they transformed through the book was intere

The Spell Master is a wonderful story. I could not put this book down! I love the way the author weaves the story. The continuation from Elf Girl is even better then the first book and I loved Elf Girl!

Ramsey is so confused about her secret. Zora is not cooperating with her for reasons she cannot understand. It seems that no one wants her to know the complete truth.

I absolutely love Nathan! Watching their relationshi

I would like to thank the author, the publisher and Goodreads for allowing me an ARC of The Spell Master.

After finishing the first book in the series I immediately started the second one to see what happened with Ramsey and the rest of the realm. I was not disappointed as the writing is still cohesive and clear, the characters are nicely developed and it has a good story going for it. Now there is a little forced romance that could be done slightly better, but it is very minimal. I did enjoy the

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

The first book was about Ramsey, she discovered that she was an elf. And then she went on a journey to find her sister that was kidnapped. She managed to save her sister and now she want's to learn more about all that's happened.

As things start going back to “normal” Ramsey finds herself being chased by some fairies.

On goes another awesome adventure. The story continues to be entertaining and wonderful with incredible charact

The action in this book was breathtaking. The twist of her secret when finally revealed was astounding! I could not believe the decisions she had to make and of course the major major twist towards the end left me screaming at the book. I don't post spoilers, so I won't say why. BUT, OMG!! NEVER saw that coming AT ALL!!!

I love the dragons so much. I'm not a big fan of Zora, but I understand her attitude. This was a great read and I really am looking forward to reading the third book!
1. progress: omg Nathan *___* this book will definitely be so much better than the first one

2. after finishing: it really was better than the first one because of Nathan <3 and because of the Ramsey's secret, although I'd already guessed part of it while reading the first book

This book is a really great read; it's much better than the first in the series, bearing in mind that the first was pretty good. The plot is very imaginative, as well as being an emotional rollercoaster, and the characters are well-rounded. I look forward to reading book three!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
It took me a lot longer to read than it would have usually and that was because I made the mistake of trying to explain it to my writing buddy, who then pointed out that it contained a lot of fillers (spoiled it for me)

“I'm scared, all right?" I said. I could feel my stomach churn as my gaze rested on the wooden trunk.
Nathan turned my chin, looking at me with an expression of utter sincerity. "You don't have to be. I'm here.”
