Daughter of the Spellcaster is the second book of The Portal series. Thier is three books to the series. Blood of the Sorceress the final book will be out in Feb. 2013.
I enjoyed book two a lot more than the first book and can't wait to see what happens next.
In Daughter of the Spellcaster it is easier to follow, but the suspense is good right up till the climax. You are never quite sure who is the good or bad characters. Who the ghost is. Will she have a girl or a boy?
In the beginning Bahru delivers a package to Lena and let her know her former client had died. He wanted her to have the package in private but do come to the reading of the will.
Magdalena Dunkirk is almost 9 months pregnant and she has not told the father yet. Now Ernst is dead and he is the grandfather to her child. Magdalena is a practicing witch and Ryan did not believe in it. She left him when she was going to tell him but brought about it in around way. Saying a friend was pregnant and had not told the father.
Ryan McNally is rich but his father is even richer. Everyone thinks Ryan is a playboy because thats what he wants them to think. His mom died when he was 11 and his dad pulled away. He was close to Lena and even thinking of marriage when she just left him. Ryan does not trust Bahru he thinks he is conning his father.
Ryan is shocked when he sees Lena at the funeral. Even more shocked when he realizes she is really rich.
Ryan inheirits most of his fathers possesions. Lena finds out that Ernst is the one she bought the old winery from and it is now paid in full. Her baby will recieve 10,000.00 when she thinks the baby is ready. She can't touch the princable but can use the interest in anyways she wants too. Bahru gets to live in the guest house of the winery for life if he wants.
Lena is seeing people with red eyes at different times. Then others see it to but think its trick of sun.
Lena dreams that Ryan is going to kill her and take her baby and discribes the knife.
Ryan follows Lena back to the winery and he can't tell her that he just inheirited that knife and it has powers.
No one knows who to trust when weird things are happening around the area they live. Lena dreams she has lived in another time and flashes back to it.
Lots of secrets, and trust issues to work out. Good drama,plot and characters.
I was given this ebook to read for free in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
