Thad Blackmoor’s heart is as cold as his icy magical abilities. He considers emotions a waste of his time and prefers to study the arcane, using the sacred books of his coven to grow in his craft. He aspires to supersede his father and elder brother Pierce in power, and now that his younger brother Mason has tapped into the rare warlock power of darkness, he needs to work harder than ever.
But Thad’s ambitions are halted when he saves Aiden Teine, a fire fairy, from a banshee. Thad’s immediate attraction to Aiden catches him off guard and thaws his cold heart for the first time. As Thad, Aiden, and his brothers investigate the connection between the banshee attack and the vampyre and shadow weaver who almost killed them, Thad tries to dodge Ben, a sexy warlock who won’t let him be after a one-night stand.
Their search leads them to the Otherworld, where something even more insidious is at work—something Thad will need more than logic to stand against.
In this, the second book, Thad, the brother with the power to freeze and the oldest brother, we see our warlock family still struggling against the vampyren. This time there is an attack on Ben, another warlock and Aiden, a fire fairy.
Unknowingly, Thad attracks the malicious attention of Ben, while hoping for the undivided attention of Aiden.
Thad was hit the hardest by his mother’s death and the seeming inattention of his father. He studies hard and that’s what defines him most days. When he has an unexpected liason with Ben, followed shortly by his immediate attraction to Aiden, everyone is surprised by his actions, including him.
There is much drama following Aiden and (later) Ben, too. The whole family must (again) band together to fight the most recent batch of evil in order to keep Aiden safe.
Jacob Flores has done an amazing job with this series. It has a little bit of something for everyone in it. Fantasy, magic, romance, danger… you name it.
This heavily relies on knowledge from book one, so I don’t recommend it as a standalone. The author has created a complicated and intricate world and it’s built upon in book two, from book one.
I loved book one very much (see review here: http://kimichanexperience.com/spellbound-warlock-brothers-havenbridge-book-1-jacob-z-flores/) and found this one to be very entertaining. I rated it only slightly lower because I didn’t connect with the MCs like I did in book one, but I’m still very excited to read book three coming out next month!
