Book Summary:
Worst. Summer. Ever.

Emma Guthrie races to learn the hoodoo magic needed to break The Beaumont Curse before her marked boyfriend Cooper’s sixteenth birthday. But deep in the South Carolina Lowcountry, dark, mysterious forces encroach, conspiring to separate Emma and Cooper forever. When Cooper starts to change, turning cold and indifferent, Emma discovers that both his heart and body are marked for possession by competing but equally powerful adversaries.

Desperate to save him, Emma and her twin brother, Jack, risk their lives to uncover the source of the black magic that has allured Cooper and holds him in its grip. Face with the horror of a soul-eating boohag, Emma and Jack must fight to resist its fiendish power to free Cooper long enough to join their strengths and face it together, before it destroys them all.

Satty's Review


In this sequel we find Emma who is trying hard to learn and improve her Hoodoo magic and is getting drained and weak in this process and on the other hand we have her boyfriend Cooper who is acting all cold and ignorant. Oh no, don’t blame the poor guy, he is under a Beaumont Curse which will take his life on his sixteenth birthday if Emma cannot find a cure of it. Thus we join the dangerous quest of Emma and her twin brother Jack as they fight to find the cure and save Cooper while the Boohag is turning all rocks for fulfilling the curse.
I really enjoyed the story though I didn’t read the first one but this sequel didn’t seem confusing at all and there were adequate descriptions and explanations from book 1 to ease the read for the readers of book 2. This story has magic, magical creatures, pure and true love, fighting for saving the love, curse, cure, revelations of well kept secrets which were meant to be kept hidden only but now it is going to shock everyone to their bones. The writing style is great and comfortable and I quickly got connected with the well thought out plot. I found Cooper to be a little irritating but he wasn’t in his senses so that eased my irritation a little. Emma is fabulous and totally developed and flourished. She is not whimsical or acts like a total stupid heroine rather she saves the day. Jack is likable as well. The suspense that the author succeeded in keeping till the end kept me on the edge and also made me anxious. The slow revelations of the mysterious secrets spiced up the story. I know I shouldn’t say this but I liked Boohag as well. It is a story which is full of magic, action, curses and is a total page turner that will surprise you and will shock you as well. Would definitely recommend this book to everyone and it can be read by readers of all ages. Give it a shot, guys!
