Spell Checked: Review

From Goodreads:
Broken relationships were a constant in Mae's life, causing her to swear off men forever. Unwittingly lured to Ireland, Mae finds herself knee-deep in a hidden world she never knew existed and head over heels for the very man that tricked her to coming there. His deception is complicated by his own feelings for the one person that holds the key to merging the ancient races that once ruled the ancient word. 

Mae finds herself in an underground world of witches, and vampires, which are half-breeds of aliens long gone. She learns about her own unique parentage and powers, which she must study in order to control, before they consume her. 

Beck and Helen's love for one another spans across a millennium, her human soul reincarnated to match Beck's own immortality. This time however the body she occupies is of a being that cannot be eclipsed by her return. After waiting two hundred years, Beck finds himself tormented by Helen's inability to return and his growing love for her new host. 

Some of the underworld creatures welcome her with open arms as a savior, while others seek to destroy the abomination they believe her to be. Will the knowledge of her existence cause a race war when the true power of her blood is discovered? Or will love become her ultimate downfall?

My Review:
This was a very unique, and complex book! Thankfully, the complex parts are introduced gradually, first that she's a Witch, then that there's Vampires as well as Witches, and Aliens, then that her "soul mate" is a Vampire, and a old one at that, then that she's half Witch, half Vampire, which is pretty hard to accomplish, and then that she has inside her the spirit of Helen, the Helen of Troy where there was all that fighting. And that her soul mate was none other then Paris. Yeah.

I really enjoyed the characters, if they were a bit crude sometimes in what they said, well, that's their choice, even if I don't really care to read that kind of language. I'm kinda a no-swearer. Anyways, the relationships were really great, if some of them were kinda suddenly there, besides some funny banter.

And the plot was really great! Mae's journey of being a plain girl to growing into a spectacular woman was great to read! It was really good, with one thing leading to another, and I hope some of the threads left off in this book will be in the next one!

I really enjoyed this book, and I'll be looking for the sequel, and yeah! Happy reading!

Bio:
As a teen C.G. Powell was selected as a member of her school's newspaper staff. After her first article the editor decided the darkroom was a more suitable place for her skills…or lack of. Since then, she has traveled everywhere—thanks to her innate curiosity about the world and the Navy. In her life time, she has learned: aviation electronics, CCNA networking, Gemology and how to get bloodstains out of the carpet (you never know when you might need that). But her latest, all-consuming, endeavor is storytelling. When asked why, her response was "I live to challenge myself; I like to be pushed outside of my comfort zone and writing is one of those things that pushes my boundaries. Besides it was the only way to share all of the crap bouncing around in my head!" C.G. Powell lives in Virginia with her husband and children. When she is not writing, you might find her watching hot guys jog past her front window, ordering the cabana boy to fix her another drink or abusing the local authorities…but that’s just hearsay.
