Title: Conjuring Moonlight
Author: Jasmine Silvera
Series: Tooth & Spell #2
Wow! This was just as action packed and emotional as the first book. After reading the first book I didn’t expect to be addicted to the second as much, but I was wrong. I couldn’t put this one down either. Mark and Evie’s story was just as good as Tobias and Barbara’s was!
Markus Vogel has been taking care of his family all his life. He is a protector and a good man, so of course he can’t look away from the beautiful bookkeeper that is clearly trying to get away from the mob. Mark is a hardcore big brother. He is constantly trying to take care of everything and doesn’t want to lean on others. I really loved seeing Markus finally be vulnerable with someone and learn to lean a little.
Evie Acaz is an extremely independent and tough woman, but also very traumatized. She has spent the past two years as a bookkeeper for a mob boss and she knows it’s just a matter of time before she will have to run. Evie was a wonderful heroine who struggles to let anyone close, especially since she can see people’s deaths when she looks at their faces. I loved seeing this strong woman open up to Markus and let him in. It is my favorite part of any romance. Markus and Evie’s relationship starts as just a fling because they know it is too dangerous for more. I really enjoyed the pacing of their relationship, especially considering the danger they faced and Evie’s past trauma.
The situation with the mob was very interesting and kept me hooked to the story. I loved how Evie handled the situation and made multiple contingency plans and caches in the event she had to run. I love the Vogal family even more after this book. They are constantly putting themselves in danger to protect their family and others, and I just love them for it. Also, I loved the dinner scene.
Overall, this was a wonderful addition to this series. I am loving learning more about this world and all the different abilities that the witches can have. Also, I just love seeing the Vogal boys fall in love. I can’t wait for the next one now.
