The Tethering (The Complete Collection) by Megan O'Russell

Book Description:

All he wants is to win her love. A dark spell may separate them forever.

A high school loner in a perfect town - that was Jacob’s life. Until his school was ripped apart by magic. After losing everything, Jacob is thrown into a world of enchantment. But the wonder of being a wizard isn’t enough to hide the danger lurking in the shadows.

Emilia is the heir of her clan, raised to help her people hide right under the humans’ noses. She can’t escape her duty as a witch. But there are some wishes even spells can’t grant.

When fate binds Jacob and Emilia together, war threatens to destroy all they hold dear. Wizards are under attack, and Jacob and Emilia find themselves at the center of a battle that will decide the survival of magic.

Jacob wants to protect Emilia. Emilia has to save the world. Facing an enemy that can shatter their souls, will they find love or be devoured by flames?

My Thoughts:

I'm going to start this review with a side note, I listened to this book with my 3 kids in the car and all 3 of them got really into it.  All 4 of us loved the entire series, even my 6 year old followed and was rooting for Jacob, Emilia and the rest of the Grey Clan.  The author's writing style and the narrator's voices are great through the entire series.  Jacob's love for Emilia is obvious from the beginning.  Their friendship is quite obviously something that both of them cherish greatly no matter where they are in life, but the 'could it be more' was the thing that kept me so interested.

Then when it became more, it wasn't how I wanted it to happen (but not unexpected).  There are ups and downs through this whole series.  I loved the other characters in the books, even one of the traitors isn't all bad.  We truly enjoyed the entire series and I loved that everything is happening in modern times and humans are just oblivious to most of it.  The magic is really cool and how Jacob got his wand is absolutely memorable.  There is a lot that happened through the series and I don't want to give away anything.  Lots of magic, centaurs, good, evil, love, betrayal, teen romance, a hag, family love....this series has it all and I loved every minute of it. 


Thank you to the author/publisher for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
