REVIEW: ENTANGLED

Author: Nikki Jefford
Series: Yes, #1
Release date: February 2012
Genre: YA

Twins Graylee and Charlene are both secret witches with magical powers. Like the rest of their coven they hide their talents from others. Which for Graylee isn’t so hard as her powers are practically nonexistent. But when her life changes dramatically she will discover that not everyone she knows and loves can be trusted, and that she may be stronger than she thinks. When the help of a banished warlock she may just get her life back.

Well I have to say Entangled was full of surprises and wasn’t what I expected at all, partly because I won the e-book so hadn't really read the synopsis. When I started reading, I thought it was going to be some light hearted, unsuspecting, teen-coming-of-age story about young twins with magical powers. But the further into the story I got the darker it got. Graylee discovers that her twin is more hateful and evil than she thought, and characters surprise you with their acts of betrayal or support. This was a roller coaster of plot twists and turns.

When I realised what had happened to Graylee, I initially thought oh please don’t turn out to be one of those stories where they wake up and find out that they were dreaming the whole time and none of its real. The reason being, the story took a sharp detour from my realm of expectations for what I thought was a light hearted story. (If this all sounds very vague, its because I don't want to spoil the story for you, although if you want to know what happens mid way through you can read the Goodreads synopsis.)

I liked the fact that the Perez twins were such different characters. I really liked Graylee, she was sweet and although she wasn't purposely mean she wasn’t afraid to fight back to win. On the other hand Charlene was viciously mean, slutty, petty and selfish, and the more I learnt about the her the less I liked her. The notes she left Graylee were so selfish and unsisterly, I loved it when Graylee rebelled against her sister and tried to maintain her independence and sense of self. Plus you gotta love a girl that eats burgers and not shakes! The tension and battles between the two was fabulous - a great hero versus villain.

Lots of the other characters weren’t what they seemed either. The dangerous, threatening Raj turned out to have a past and history that made him vulnerable. And when it came down to it, he had the strength and commitment to help Graylee. I think they made a great pair!

A surprising and delightfully dark read, that will certainly keep you entertained and spellbound.

Rating: 4*
