Brothers’ third installment in the Unbidden Magic series kicks thing up a few notches. It’s jam packed with mystery, action, lots of fantasy and a touch of comedic romance. Allie is a great Young adult heroin for teen girls today. Romance doesn’t come easy for her and it doesn’t seem to stick. As the series progresses it gets better and Brothers’ blew me away as she added a new mix to her characters. I found myself glued to the book franticly reading to see what would happen next. Brothers hinte...more

Moon Spun was also included in the Moonstone bundle I got from Netgalley. However, unlike the first two books, this one didn't really get to me.

First, there was the weirdness of the three guys going after Allie. And to be honest, I didn't like any of them besides Junior (of course). I was truly happy for his return, cuz I missed his spicy Latino air.
Second, there was the fairy stuff... seriously, why does there have to be something else weird going on? Wasn't the moonstone and the star seekers...more

I love Marilee Brothers; however, this installment of the Unbidden Magic series was not enjoyable for me. After reading the first two books in the series and enjoying them immensely, I was under the mistaken impression that the story line was headed in one direction. But, then the land of the faeries was introduced and it just became too convuluted for me. Also, what is up with all of these different love interests? This time we are to believe that one of the characters is her fated mate. Not wi...more

I think I might have been expecting to much with this one. After enjoying Moon Rise quite a bit, I was hoping Moon Spun would continue on the same path. But, I almost feel like the author is trying too hard and mixing too many elements.

First off, Junior is back. I'm not sure what it is about the guy but I'm just not feeling it. I liked Beck, but it this one he turns into an ass and disappears for most of the story. Add in the third guy (really did we need a third) Ryker and it just gets sticky....more

There comes a time where you just have to say enough is enough.

Yes, I still enjoyed the story - but come on! Fairies now? It's as if Marilee Brothers is trying to cram every bit of supernatural she possibly can into this story. It's starting to get a little far-fetched - even for this paranormal supernatural lovin' gal.

And third book, third guy. Really? What is with this cycle of endless boys being paraded by us? It's hinted at that A...more

I love, love, love the character of Allie Emerson and Moonstone, and Moon Rise They are two of my FAVORITE YA Urban Fantasy books. But I felt really let down with Moon Spun. I think the thing I loved about MS and MR was they were so different than a lot of the YAUF out there with the powers of the Moonstone, the Star Seekers, Trimarks, etc. Plus, there were great characters as well and hot romance with Junior and Allie and then Beck and Allie.

Here's what frustrated me with Moon Spun. Allie find...more

Spoilers!

I have loved this series and read the first two every quickly, but in the third novel I got bogged down wtih the addtion of a third boyfriend, who I didn't like nearly as well as the first two (he was much too arrogant) and the addition of another magical complication in her life. She's a faerie, with another name to keep track Normally I like the "out there" books, but this just felt like overkill. I even love modern day faerie tales, but I want to know from the beginning that's what...more

Originally published at Nose in a Book.
So here we are, back in Peacock Flats with Allie and Faye and all the rest. Beck has left for college and found a new girlfriend. Junior is back in town. Ryker is annoying. So, Allie’s love triangle is now a love square. We meet the fae in this one too, which usually excites me, but this one was kind of weird to me. We jump from Allie being a Star Seeker to Faye being…well, fae, thereby making Allie fae as well. There’s just a lot going on in this one. I wo...more

This series revolves around a young girl named Allie and the events surrounding her coming to possess a magical Moon Stone. Allie posses supernatural powers that are amplified by the stone. In addition to surviving the normal trials of being a teenager Allie has to survive being the keeper of the Moon Stone.

I found this series hard to get into at first. Being an adult that likes to read YA I tend to gravitate toward the upper end of the YA spectrum. Thus I found Allie’s goofy moments a bit diff...more

Moon Spun is the third book in this series, Unbidden Magic. It takes a different flavor while starting close to where Moon Rise left off. It's summertime and the fairies are out to play. Beck is gone to Seattle and Junior is back in town, but it's Ryker who is after Allie's heart.

The threat in this book isn't from the Trimarks - it's in Boundless, aka Fairyland. Allie's grandmother needs her help to free the fairies of the forest from the prison they've been kept in for years. Add a changling wh...more

I had thought I had an idea of what was going to happen in this book, Brothers completely blew my mind! I could not stop reading! I started it and then you find out a few things about Allie and I was just sitting there with my mouth open. I'm fairly sure there were a few "OMG!"s out loud while I was reading. I thought at first that it would be similar to Sookie Stackhouse type of fae. NOPE! I just read this book in less than a day, I only have one more in the series to read, I worried about how...more

This is the third book of the series Moonstones. So far its not been my favorite book. Still enjoyed it.
In this book Allie has Junior coming for visits. Breck coming back on visits from collage and a third guy Ryker shows up.
Does not deal with school. Allie has a summer job working for her Uncle at the fruit stand. Plus she ends up babysitting Chad her princable child.
Ryker is a fairy and he has come bringing a message from her Grandmother who is a Fairy...more

If you're hoping for more movement on the Trimark front, then you'll be disappointed. If you're looking for more resolution as far as Beck/Allie/Junior goes, you'll be disappointed. Why? Because this book shoves everything to the side in order to introduce yet another love interest and to bring a series of new plot developments out of left field.

Let me first say that if this was a different series with a different character, it'd be great. It's readable. It's fun. It just irritates me because t...more

In this third book, we follow Allie back to her trailer, where she again discovers all sort of new things about herself, her life and her abilitiees with and without the moonstone.

She meets Ryker, a sometimes Hawk, sometimes hunk...and very fairy... and is -as she discovers that she has fae blood herself, through her grandmother- presumed his mate! Ryker has come to take her to fairyland, Boundless, to save her ailing grandmother and assume her rightful place by his side...

I read the first four books in the Unbidden Magic Series at once. To review them, I wrote a mini review of each book followed by an overall review of the complete series. For the full review of all four books, see Chronicles of a Book Evangelist.

Mini Review:

Moon Spun really disappointed me for a lot of reasons. It took what had been a steadily developing series and brought it down to the level of day time drama in terms of plot continuity. Brothers makes drastic changes in the structure of the...more

With the final book coming out this summer, Netgalley had an offer for their reviewers – all four of the current books of the Unbidden Magic Series as one long e-book. The number of pages was daunting but that didn’t stop me from burning through the books in a matter of days. Allie is just a normal girl trying to survive what life has offered her. She lives with her mother in a travel trailer on a piece of her mother’s step-brother’s land. Her mother was suffering from a mysterious illness that...more

Ever since she discovered she's the supposed Star Seeker, Allie Emerson's life has been topsy-turvy. Her ex-boyfriend has suddenly appeared in her life once more, and her half-demon boyfriend is now acting a little strange. She knows she has a little unfinished business with the two of them. Unfortunately, setting things straight will have to wait till later.

Her world is further turned upside-down when she discovers that not only is she the Star Seeker, but she's also a Faery princess. As if thi...more

Every time I pick up a book in this series, I get drawn further and further into this amazing world. Brothers pulls you in with her phenomenal storytelling and keeps you captivated with suspense, romance, and more than a few laughs. I honestly don’t remember the last time that I laughed as hard as I did about a few of the things that happened in this novel. By the next page I was back on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. Everything flows so fluently in this novel that never o...more

3.5 Stars -
This is the third of five volumes in the Unbidden Magic series, and picks up where the last left off. It is written as a sequential series, and while the first two books were enhanced by sequential reading, this book could stand alone without great confusion.

In this book, Junior returns from Mexico to express his desire for Allie, and her boy problems continue with confusion about which boy is superior. Sadly, that whole line of the story tends to find me less than enthusiastic, All...more

I enjoyed reading this book. As others have stated this, the third book in the Unbidden Magic series does take an unexpected turn into the land of fairies, even more than I expected after reading the summary. This book was less about Junior and Beck and the whole love triangle than I expected and yes add another boy into the equation. Her love life is a mess, much like the average teenager. Would I have continued reading the series if this had been the first book in the sereis? No because I am n...more

A fabulous continuation of Marilee's series. The further adventures of Allie Emerson. In this third installment, Allie is introduced to her Fae Grandmother in the land of Boundless. I'm not going to give away any spoilers here, just would like to say this is an amazing book in an incredible series. The most fun you can have with paranormal/supernatural creature. There are no vampires or werewolves, but there are werebats, kelpies, faeries- both dark and good and forest Queen's. We see Allie grow...more

So third book into the series and there's a third guy wanting to get with Allie ... at this point the series is starting to feel like House of Night, where every important guy seems to want to get with Zoey. That's my only annoyance so far, just that one. Other than that I'm really enjoying this new (to me) series.

This time around Allie meets her grandmother and helps save the day in Boundless, then re-introduces her mother to her grandmother. As well as dealing with major drama between the 3 gu...more

Now, I'm a HUGE faerie fan. HUGE. I think it's safe to say that I love everything to do with fae, the Tuatha de Danann and the underworld in general, so THIS was my favourite of the four books.
I absolutely loved pretty much the entire plot and gobbled up every word. The scenes in Boundless are breathtaking, and the fae characters are absolutely amazing.
A few scenes were so beautifully written that I was honestly moved to tears.
The one problem I did have with this third book was the addition of...more

The latest book by Marilee Brother's takes the world of Alfrieda to a whole 'nother plane. Fairyland to be exact - and while the series just got a lot more complicated it was enjoyable. There were a few moments where I was just a bit overwhelmed by the craziness the series had taken and fairyland did seem a bit 2D compared to the vibrant Peacock Flats. But, besides some of the sillier moments of the novel, I did enjoy and look forward to any more books that Brothers mi
