    Once again, I should say that I got this book in exchange for an honest review Ok ok, so if you read my first review you ll see that you caught me I read both of these books back to back so I got a little foggy on where the first one ended and the second one began Good news is this book can be read as a stand alone The author does a pretty good job at catching you up if you hadn t read Possession although you really should Some small details you will not be able to appreciate, but for the Once again, I should say that I got this book in exchange for an honest review Ok ok, so if you read my first review you ll see that you caught me I read both of these books back to back so I got a little foggy on where the first one ended and the second one began Good news is this book can be read as a stand alone The author does a pretty good job at catching you up if you hadn t read Possession although you really should Some small details you will not be able to appreciate, but for the most part you will be just fine In the first book, Constance s mother seems wishy washy She seems to really not have much of a backbone and is very paranoid to involve Constance in any of the necromancer business In the meantime, Constance learns that her gift is much greater than her mom s and that it s going to take both of them to find and take down the dark necromancer that they ve been hunting Her mom, Veronica, finally realizes that she has to start training Constance to fully develop her gift The dark necromancer is using other spirits and people to do his dirty work It s obvious that he she has figured out exactly who Constance is and is willing to use her loved ones to do his dirty biddings Constance is positive she knows exactly who is behind all of this, but no one will listen to her She must do something to make them listen or stop the dark necromancer herself

But it s nice to see that there are a variety of such scenes, ranging from fights to exorcism and, this time, chases.So what happened in the first half Well, the high school drama has certainly went up a notch now that Constance isn t simply standing on the sidelines There s the somewhat one sided rivalry with Seline, Seth constantly sending mixed signals , and several fall outs with Greta this one really got one my nerves because I do not understand him at all Like I think he has something to hide but maybe he just doesn t know how to deal with his feelings for Constance if he has any at all Seriously, make up your mind Do you like Constance or are you still in love with Seline Don t leave a girl hanging just how many times is one able to argue with their best friend in the span of a few months I simply cannot comprehend this drama.Then there s the family drama as well, which mostly consists of Constance disagreeing with her mom s methods of gathering information so she employs her own though somewhat life threatening ones This is actually what contributes to most of the passive ness as their research into the dark necromancer s identity made very little progress However, this isn t because the characters don t actively seek out the evidence but because there s nothing much that they can do Their suspect is too careful, too perceptive and they do not understand his intentions.Blog Twitter Tumblr Instagram

    I received this book in exchanged for an honest review I really like this series The 2nd book wasn t as good as the first in my opinion, but I still really liked it The story was good though, however I didn t appreciate the cliffhanger ending, it felt a bit rushed and incomplete almost like the book doesn t stand alone A pet peeve of mine is that each book in a series should stand alone with a distinct ending, I just really don t like cliffhangers.On to the actual story, Illusion picks up wh I received this book in exchanged for an honest review I really like this series The 2nd book wasn t as good as the first in my opinion, but I still really liked it The story was good though, however I didn t appreciate the cliffhanger ending, it felt a bit rushed and incomplete almost like the book doesn t stand alone A pet peeve of mine is that each book in a series should stand alone with a distinct ending, I just really don t like cliffhangers.On to the actual story, Illusion picks up where Possession left off with Constance trying to figure out what being a necromancer really means She is walking the fine line of protecting the family secret, helping her mother, and still trying to keep some normalcy with her dad, and failing miserably at all of it Things at school are strange as Queen Bee Seline is no longer on top after her antics at Homecoming, Mr Ransom still gives Constance the creeps, and something is up with Greta Constance is trying to still be a normal teenager and tutor Seth at calculus by day, and at night she is trying to learn how to banish naughty spirits back to where they belong As the book progresses they determine who the dark necromancer is and come up with a plan to try to stop him and his evil plan with Seline and Greta in tow Greta finds out she has a poltergiest attached to her from her previous run in with that aromatherapy candle from book 1 that they have to banish before someone gets really hurt, and Seth finds out what is really going on with Constance As things getdangerous Constance starts to come to terms with her powers even if her mom doesn t accept that there is another way to do things Constance starts to take things into her own hands to try to draw out the dark necromancer and get some answers The whole Jerome clan is in danger and Constance is determined to stop the dark necromancer from hurting her friends and family.Overall I ve really enjoyed this series thus far and I m anxious to find out what happens next I really like the different subject matter on this one Necromancy isn t something you see often and I like Oldham s writing style, so much so I ve downloaded some of her other books I highly recommend the series, it is a good entertaining read

    It s been raining a lot here in Cebu for the last two weeks It s wet and cold and it s nice to just hide under the blankets and be immersed in a gripping book And the nights are colder Perfect for having hot soup or hot cocoa.This is the second book in the Song and Shadow series This time Constance has to embrace her gift to face the dark necromancer that has been wrecking havoc in Milltown She also has to prove that her suspicions are true Will she be able to accomplish all of these thing It s been raining a lot here in Cebu for the last two weeks It s wet and cold and it s nice to just hide under the blankets and be immersed in a gripping book And the nights are colder Perfect for having hot soup or hot cocoa.This is the second book in the Song and Shadow series This time Constance has to embrace her gift to face the dark necromancer that has been wrecking havoc in Milltown She also has to prove that her suspicions are true Will she be able to accomplish all of these things As I have mentioned in my review on the first book Possession, Seline, Constance s number one tormentor was promising to be coming around In this book, she is finally coming to that but it took quite a while for her to finally accept that things are not any the way they were I guess old habits die hard She has fallen from grace and the only person who talks to her and has shown her any kindness is Constance I am glad that finally, Seline got a taste of her bitter pill And Constance is no longer the pariah It seemed that Constance and Seline s fate have been reversed Good thing, Constance is not one to gloat She feels sorry for Seline and can t help but pity her which is sometimes annoying On the other hand, Constance is slowly discovering other aspects of her gift She realized she isgifted than her mother Her curiosity and stubbornness had led her to discover and learn some important facts related to her gift but at the same time, her adventures had almost cost her a lot.The ending of this book is so sad I don t like it Why did it have to be this way My heart was crushed The next book better make up for this heartbreaking ending in this book I hope it should be worth this ache I am feeling right now.I give the book 4 5 jars of dirt I am just so sad that it ended that way Oh, why Oh, why It can t be I wished it ended some other way I still can t believe it My mind refused to accept it
