TWW’s Book Review: Kiss the Crystal Sun by Penelope King

This book was read for the April, 2012 Reading Romances Challenge (just a little late getting it posted!)

Kiss the Crystal Sun is the second book in the Spellbound Trilogy. Calista’s story continues where we left off in Witchy, Witchy.
Justin and Nicholas are gone and Calista is left to wonder what will
happen and we are left to ponder how she will deal with them the
situation.As any true reader will know, there is always going to be more
to the story than just the current story line.

Penelope
King must begin to reveal more about Calista in order for us to find
out who she really is…and so she did. Unfortunately, Calista is about
to discover all that was once true is now, in fact, a lie. The reasons
behind her mother’s death, her birthright, the reason she can no longer
see into the future…all of it is revealed in this book.
The
heroine’s desire to learn more about her past drives her to find the
answers…no matter the cost. Since she has only recently found out
about her powers, she still struggles to find a sense of normalcy.
However, her longing to find the truth is challenged by her youth and
she must rely on her instinct to see her through the challenges she
faces, no matter what the wisdom influences in her life tell her.
In keeping with consistency of the previous book, Witchy, Witchy,
the author has waited to the very end to deliver the awaited
cliffhanger, which can only be described as “like mother, like
daughter”. Or not…
I had originally thought I
wouldn’t like the series, merely because of my history with another
famous witch/wizard storyline. However, I have to say that I have been
captivated by this one and only hope that Ms. King will hurry up and
finish the last book of the trilogy so I can see how it ends. Rating:

Wishing you moments of great reading!
