When Nikki sent me Duplicity I immediately loaded it onto my reader and dug into it. I read Entangled (the first book in Nikki's Spellbound series) a few months back and it was a 5 star read for me. I loved the characters and the world building and have been anxiously awaiting Duplicity. We dive right back in with Graylee Perez (now Stacey Morehouse) & Raj McKenna and are thrown right into another mystery.

The characters remain strong in Duplicity,

My Thoughts: I was so taken with the first book that I had to immediately go out and buy the rest of the trilogy and start reading. Unfortunately I needed to do some editing, so I wasn't able to indulge myself with any

In "Entangled," high school socialite Charlene Perez was forced to share her body with the soul of her less popular, sort of hippie-ish identical twin sister, Graylee. At the end of "Entanglement," Charlene and a friend expelled her twin's soul from the body they shared--her body--then Charlene was free to head off to school in France. There, she has a ball, speaking French and smoking cigarettes, until one day, when her sister, Graylee, awakens inside Charlene's body. The difference this time i ...more

All this book needed was a couple more flashbacks to understand everything and it could have passed as the first in a series or better yet a stand alone. Definitely an improvement! I actually enjoyed it. I'm nervous to read the third novel. I feel like the second novel was a redemption novel and I'm afraid the third will ruin that. It was great to finally understand the characters and to even connect with them. Having the two versions of Graylee actually made it easier to understand Gray. I like ...more
ok WOW Gray and Lee
im kinda lost hahaha but many thanks they still
have a difference .

i don't know why i am so hooked
in this series is it because of the twin thing or
the romance in it .
or the story about witches
i think i love them all .

I am so looking forward to the next book .

Duplicity is the second book in the Spellbound Trilogy by Nikki Jefford. I had the opportunity to read and review Entangled, the first book, back in April, and I loved it. (You can read my review here.) This time around, Nikki sent me an ARC of Duplicity and even mentioned BlookGirll in the Acknowledgements section! Cue MAJOR fangirling! :-)

I immediately dove into Duplicity as soon as it transferred to my Nook, because I just had to know how all of my favorite characters were doing. Did Charlene

Shame on me for not getting to this book sooner. I read and was highly entertained by the first in the trilogy, Entangled, last year. Why the follow up slipped through my net, I don’t know. I woke in the middle of the night recently with back pain and knew there was no getting back to sleep, so I grabbed my Kindle and got reading. I read this in a few hours, finishing about 4am. Totally distracted me from the pain – nice one!

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.

I was hooked the time I started reading Duplicity. It's that good.

Charlene, the annoying evil sister on the first book, Entangled, was nowhere to be seen. What a relief. *evil laugh* And Graylee became Gray. And Lee. A duplicate, yes. And who is the original?

I could definitely say that this book was as good as the first one. It doesn't lowered the standard---it even increased. And that's all I can do to not keep on saying how awesome and I

When I first started Duplicity, I thought that there was no way I'd love the book as much as the first in the series, Entangled. Of course, the more I read of Duplicity, the more I started to fall for these characters all over again. Nikki Jefford knows how to keep her readers hooked until the very end and this book is no exception.

As the story begins, we're shown this new life of Graylee's. New body, no Charlene, hardly any complications as one may believe. She still has her powers, but unfort

I really enjoyed book #2 of the Spellbound series! It was another quick, fun, and light read. The premise was very interesting. We start off a few months after Entangled left off and get a brief overview of what life is like for Lee. Then, it's the one-year anniversary of her "death," suddenly there are two Graylee's.

The story progression was very intriguing. How would you react if your old "self" came back: looked like you, acted like you, had your memories, was 100% you up to a few months ago

Actual rating - 2.5

Duplicity was slightly worse than Entangled.

The whole "two Grey's" thing could be quite confusing. I know one was called Grey, and the other was called Lee, but i still had to read some parts twice to work out what was going on.

The characters in this was slightly less immature, but i still never found myself liking them that much.

Some parts of the story dragged, which made the book feel longer than what it was.

Overall, confusing, and slow.

Duplicity was a fantastic sequel to Entangled! The characters once again were fantastic and the story continued to be fresh and original. I personally love to wear good luck charms, so I loved the magic/talisman aspect! I also loved that one of my favorite movies was mentioned and there were quite a few funny moments, especially a certain a Lady Gaga moment!

Just a warning- Duplicity is a book that you really have to follow closely or you could become a tad mixed up, in terms of the characters!

When Graylee Perez comes back as a duplicate of herself in the body of Charlene, things get a little weirder than they were. While everyone is trying to find out exactly whose who Adrian puts in an appearance that throws everyone off.

It was interesting. I liked the duplicate concept and questions of who really existed. I actually kind of liked lee less until the end of the book. I wanted her to take gray seriously and treat her like a person.

I'm so glad I found Jefford. She's among my favorite authors. Ever.
i enjoyed the first book in this series so much, I got this one as a treat for myself. I didn’t find it as good, though. There were a lot of times when it seemed like the characters just forgot what they were doing in the middle of something and wandered off to something else. The book leaves a bunch of loose ends untied, and i don’t exactly get the impression that it’s on purpose.

I feel I love with the first book in the Spellbound series, and now I am puzzled at how my love for the second book was multiplied by 2! Maybe it is a spell, wouldn't shock me since seeing double is key to this books. Lee (Graylee now on Stacey's body) and Raj have been through a lot. Now closing in on the anniversary of Graylee's death, things are about to get even more interesting. What Adrian did in the spell becomes clear as he waltzes back in town. What would it be like to meet a copy of yo ...more

I had mix feelings about it. In A good way! Is just it was hard to read two Grays. Gray one goes by Lee now and has been happily ever after in a new body thanks to Raj and Adrian at the conclusion of book one. And then one year anniversary of her death another Gray shows up. It was so hard to process it. My feelings were torn between the two because what makes one gray more than the other? Who has more right? I mean Both were split into two. Same souls. I felt more sad for Gray two because how s ...more

This was ah-mazing!! Even better than the first!! I started to worry half way through this when I really started to dislike Lee. But... she totally redeemed herself! Gray was my favorite character from book one. I'm dying to know just where exactly Charlene is and what she's been doing. I'm quite content to continue to hate her, but I am curious. This plot was fresh and intriguing and made me annoyed when I felt upset by what was happening. Am I the only one who likes Adrian? Because I totally d ...more

There wasn’t nearly enough Raj in this one for me but I did enjoy getting a few glimpses of Adrian. I’m excited to learn more about him in the next book!

I now remember not to let more than a month or two pad before reading a series book. That being said, the story was good, not as good as the first book, but still good and enjoyable. Can't wait to see where book 3 goes!

I liked the book. The viewpoint was interesting because of the duplicity of one person. I would recommend reading. Going to have to read the next book.

After dying, living in her sisters body, and then taking 8 months to get used to an entirely new body, Lee Perez is finally starting to relax into her semi normal, magically filled life. That is until Gray shows up. Now Lee, Raj and their families have to figure out if living with two Graylee's is possible. Their problems continue when the whole covens' powers start to go haywire and the gang is put in hot water when it comes out that Adrian Montez may be connected to all of the trouble.

I only read this book because I read the synapse about the third book and knew I needed to read this book to understand what was going on. I thought this book was pointless. I really didn't like either Gray in this book. Lee was really selfish and acted like a blubbering bimbo with too many hormones. The other Gray was really immature and I did not like the way she treated Adrian. Adrian was the most interesting character in this series. He is the only reason why I continued it.

Full Review Posted on GingerRead Reviews

Entangled introduced us to a world of witches and warlocks living amongst non-magical humans. Some of these Magi were good and, 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 bod

Ten months after the occurrences in Entangled, Graylee (now known as Lee) is still trying to settle into her new life as Stacey Morehouse. However, a few days before her death anniversary, a second Gray shows up in Charlene's body. My reaction: O.O WTF?? Is that even possible? Well, apparently it is. But this second Graylee (who goes by Gray) does not have the memories of those last ten months. For her, it's only been days after her death. Everyone is confused wit

Lee is happy with her new life, and everything is going perfectly for her...that is, until her magic is uncontrollable, plus someone shows up saying that she's Gray. Oh, and to top it all off the council believes they have an idea of who broke into their houses almost a year ago and stole the amulets that kept Adrian's powers blocked.

What I liked: Alright, the covers to this entire series is nothing short of beautiful. Can we establish that now? Yes? Good. Because I love the way the covers look. Kinda frosty like ice and there’s Duplicity’s flower which stands out quite a bit since it’s not green. I feel like there was more going on that made much more sense in this one as well, though again there are lacking in the building and explaining. Plus, the “Grim Reaper” aspect, I didn’t see that being the powerful necromancer talk ...more
