Description: Junior's back from Mexico with his movie-star entourage. Beck's using his half-demon charms to "heal" a new girl. Mom's still wacky and now she's dating Principal Hostetler. High school is still an obstacle course of drama queens, bullies and nutjobs. The Trimarks are still a menace, and the moonstone pendant has revealed even more mind-boggling powers. In other words, Allie Emerson's life as the Girl Voted Least Likely To Save The World From Evil has gone from Weird to Super-Charged Super-Weird, and it's about to get even weirder. You're a faery princess. So says the mysterious Ryker, whose handsome talents include turning himself into a hawk. By the way, he and Allie are destined to marry. In faery land--Boundless. If they can save it from forces even more deadly than Trimarks and high school. The third book in the Unbidden Magic series plunges readers into a rich other-world of danger, humor, romance, fable, fairytale and magical destiny.
I think I might have been expecting to much with this one. After enjoying Moon Rise quite a bit, I was hoping Moon Spun would continue on the same path. But, I almost feel like the author is trying too hard and mixing too many elements.
First off, Junior is back. I'm not sure what it is about the guy but I'm just not feeling it. I liked Beck, but it this one he turns into an ass and disappears for most of the story. Add in the third guy (really did we need a third) Ryker and it just gets sticky. Ryker seems to be the most intersting, but then fairies usually are. Thankfully Allie decides at the end that she doesn't need men, but we will see how long that lasts.
So we add in the element of fairies, and that's were I was beginning to lose interest. I think we could have just stuck with the moonstone and the prophecy and it would have been enough. But, the story is starting to get complicated and I'm not sure were it's going. Plus, I'm beginning to feel like it's dragging out a little. But, I will probably continue on if there is another one. I've invested this much time, I was to see what Allie does with the prophecy.
