Concealed (Beholder #2) by Christina Bauer


As a Grand Mistress Necromancer, Elea’s a witch who commands the ultimate power over spirit and bone. It’s magic that she’ll need in order to stop the Vicomte Gaspard from killing her Sisters by draining their magic along with their life force.

To find and free her fellow witches, Elea must venture into some of the most dangerous places in the realm. What starts off as a rescue quest could easily turn into a suicide mission. And with the handsome warlock Rowan along to help, Elea may be risking more than her life. Her growing feelings for Rowan might put her heart on the line, too.

4.5 out of 5 stars

Cannot be read as a standalone

I'm in love with this magical storyline. Rowan and Elea are back to fight the Vicomte. Get ready for new spells and discoveries.

After Elea and Rowan sent the Tsar into exile, Elea's new mission is to find her sisters and to stop the Vicomte from gathering magic. Her journey leads her to new friends and many dangerous encounters.

As a romance junkie, my favorite part of this series is the attraction between Rowan and Elea. They have a forbidden romance that I'm addicted to. Although the chemistry is innocent, it still gave me plenty of butterflies in my stomach.

I also loved the new spells and incantations. They definitely kept things interesting and exciting even though there were moments when the spells just seemed too convenient and I couldn't get a full grasp of what their limits were.

The story has so many twists and turns, and I have so many questions! I need book 3 now!
