The Fourth Year Spell

The Fourth Year Spell (Elnar, #1)The Fourth Year Spell by Amanda Jeffery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Spells And Potions Sprinkled With Sex And Sorcery...

Author Amanda Jeffery constructs a well-crafted fantasy, action and adventure novella. With intriguing twists and turns, it will easily captivate the reader’s attention from the beginning. The author paints an exciting and adventurous story of sex and sorcery in a very vivid and convincing way. In addition, the characters are drawn with great credibility and conviction.

The story had every element a good story should have. A solid and captivating plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s plenty of imagery in the writing style that makes you feel like you are right there in the story, and that’s something I look for in a good book.

The book description gives a sneak preview: ‘Declan Devereaux is finally ready to complete his Fourth Year Spell so he can move on to the next year of studies. All that's left is one ingredient and he's ready to get it from the Mayor's Manor. Unbeknownst to Declan, the local Thieve's Guild also has plans to rob the Manor on the same night. When they meet mid-robbery, Declan casts a spell that sets the four of them on a path that may end at the gallows.’

I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of plot twists that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book’s mystique. It was one of those books that comes along occasionally that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. For those looking for an interesting, three-dimensional and stimulating short read, this would be a great find.  I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader.
