And the magehounds are beautiful. If anything, read it for the magical wolves ^^
I think this book is pretty good because it gives you another view of wizards and witches.The author really describes the setting and characters really well. I learn that not all witches and wizards cast spells, some of them ...more
Nowhere did the description indicate the first half of this book reads more like a slasher horror film. Natalie has an encounter with a strange man who takes far too much interest in her, who later comes back with a group of people, physically overpowers her, drugs her, kidnaps her, and locks her up in his home in the wilderness where no one can find them. And then proceeds to subject her to not only casual brutality but things that are supposed to be torturous t ...more
I have one complaint for this book, though.
(view spoiler)[ This was what upset me the most: The plot. It was way too confusing and had too many things going on at the same time. One second Tim hates Nat (The main character) and now he doesn't? I couldn't follow Jo, Nat, Tim, Merlin, and Hawk...more
Natalie- She is so COOL!!! I really like her and her brother. This fantasy is really great a book that everyone should read and enjoy. I fell in love with Spellfall and the world represents! It is different from any other book I've ever read. Fantastical and depthful this is a book whose characters will stay with you long after the last page is turned.
Yes, you might think "Merlin? That legendary wizard that is featured in the Arthurian legend?"
This Merlin here is quite the opposite, he doesn't seem to get anything right and on top of it, he is always complaining. So whiny.
The overall premise is simple, if not a bit cliché. Natalie, a twelve year old girl, finds a spell (which looks l ...more
The book I pick is a mixture of fantasy and fiction, the reason why I pick this book because it had caught my attention by the interesting title and thought that it would be fun to read since I love to read thing that have magic in it so that is why I pick to read the book, in this book there is a little girl named Natalie the protagonist, a little boy Merlin he is a , and another girl name Jo there is a teenage boy name Tim he is the stepbrother of Nat and he is a supporting character there is ...more
Written in 2000
Natalie thought she was an ordinary 12 years old girl. She lived with her father, step mother, and stepbrother. Her mother died when she was 3 years old. One day, she found a glimmering wrapper in the supermarket parking lot which lead her to get kidnapped and go to an magical world called Earthaven. Then she got informed by a wizard boy named Merlin that she is also a wizard and her mother is came from Earthaven. Then, a wizard named Hawk us ...more
I loved the premise, the characters, the settings, everything. I thought K'tanaqui was great and certainly thought I was going to grow up to name my dog in a similar fashion. I was very disappointed to see that K'ikki or K'icole don't look nearly as impressive. The boy Merlin was my favourite character I thin ...more
That's this book in a nutshell. While the writing and overall plot line was worth reading it I did find myself getting confused during some parts. Others seemed to drag on a bit but that was just my personal ...more
So, the heroine is kidnapped, manages to escape, and learns the usual. A. Her mother was not normal. B. She (the girl) is not normal either. C. There is a magical land/parallel universe where you can only see through your familiar's eyes. And of course the bad guy wants to use her to Rule both worlds.
I loved parts of it. But there was not the poetic justice at the end that I had expected. I did fall in love with her wolf-dog familiar ...more
I've tried to read this about a hundred times before and never succeeded. Even this time round, I found it quite hard to get into, and kept putting it off. I think it's just a bit slow to get started, and while I'm sure it's enjoyable for children in its intended age range, there wasn't anything magical enough about it to make me think of it as more than just a ...more
