Constance started to keen as the air around us began to thrash and twist, the caustic scent of ozone burning my nose. As I watched, her dark gold hair began to lift and kink into knots.

“I’m here. It’ll be okay.” It was the last thing I said before my best friend’s little sister went supernova in the second-floor girls’ bathroom, taking me with her.

A month ago, Mo Fitzgerald risked her life to stop an ancient prophecy and avenge her best friend's murder. Now, she only wants to keep her loved ones safe. But the magic—and the Chicago Mob—have other plans.

Mysterious, green-eyed Luc is back, asking for help—and a second chance. Colin, her strongest protector, is hiding a shocking secret. And inside Constance, the magic is about to go terribly wrong. Tangled in a web of love and betrayal, Mo must choose between the life she's dreamed of and the one she's destined for.
do not read if you haven't read Torn!
This was such a shock for me, because I never expected it to be much better than the first book! While "Torn" was an okay book, "Tangled" was definitely great! I don't know what exactly made me love it, but I just did. The characters were amazing, and I loved the love triangle! The story almost never got boring, and everything was just fun! Mo, the main protagonist, was a determined and strong character! I especially loved how she didn't just immediately fall for the "magic" guy, but fell in love with her bodyguard instead! Mo felt really realistic to me, because of all the decisions and hardships she had to go through were rational. Overall, I loved all the characters.
I'm thankful to say that in this book, the scenes with magic weren't too difficult to imagine like the first book. They weren't that complicated, and were simple and easy to understand. Also, I liked how the whole book didn't just revolve around the "magic", but also revolved around Mo's family problems. That way, I understood more about Mo, and that just made her look like a normal girl who just got sucked into the magic business.
I can't really explain much about what happened, because this is the second book, but I can say that it was a really great book you should read! It's been a long time since a book gave me an adrenaline rush, and I guess that's what makes this book awesome!
4 musical notes! 


  1. Wow this sounds really interesting! I love books about magic, so ill definitely put this trilogy on my TBR list! Thanks for the review!

  2. I've got this one to be read, I'm hoping to get to it soon...SO happy to hear it's better than the first. I loved Torn so if it's better....ekk! Very awesome. LOL!

  3. Great review! I like the sound of this and will definitely have to check out the first book.

  4. I don't think I've heard of this series before but I'm going to check it out right now! I'm glad to see you enjoyed this one so much, it's great when book two is even better than book one. Usually it's the other way around- for me, anyway!

    Great review Farah :)
