Betraying Season (Leland Sisters, #2) by Marissa Doyle

I can’t say the same for anyone else. She’s a bookworm, and would rather be at home reading and studying magic than going to parties and being fitted for dresses. I mean, she’s only taken a sudden liking to me, even though it’s been pointed out more than once that she never likes anyone and she only uses people for her advancement Would this not be the perfect time for her to kick some ass and take some names?

I wanted to bash her in the head with the very copy of Betraying Season that I was reading.


It means a seasson tone because I write what I like to read and I’m not really into cathartic reading Any number of things could have made the book more interesting — beaitching dealing with learning magic, passages describing what it feels like to practice magic, silly bits with the sisters playing jokes on each other or Charles with magic, something more substantial about Persy and the man she ultimately chooses to marry sharing magic Like, they were usually joking, I think, but they would mock him and call him an idiot for no reason at all.

Unfortunately, English girls in can’t just dash off to the rescue.

It’s not high art, but, like the first book, Bewitching Season, it’s quite enjoyable. And that is what this book does, it’s the way of the world for Pen and Pen just goes with it.

Bewitching Season (Leland Sisters, book 1) by Marissa Doyle

For one, the girls are seventeen, and aren’t the teen years just one Big Misunderstanding? Jul 10, Kristi rated it really liked it Shelves: Persy is twitterpated from the offing, and she immediately assumes that he prefers Penelope.

There Pen meets the dashing Niall Keating who entices Pen into a love story. Doyle still manages to make sesson an integral and interesting part of this story.

She was stupid in the first book and she’s still stupid. Racing through Mayfair ballrooms and royal palaces, the sisters overcome bad millinery, shady royal spinsters, and bewitfhing mysterious Irish wizard. Mar 25, Clare Cannon rated it did not like it Shelves: I really wanted to love this book, but it fell flat about half way through.

Why wouldn’t she like me?

Bewitching Season

And this is what makes it work. In fact, I finished the book a little confused about who some of them were.

Niall doesn’t examine his mother’s plans too closely, ostensibly because he Betraying Season is as frustrating as Bewitching Seasonbut I thought the more confident of the two Leland sisters might provide a more compelling narrative. I don’t review books much here on GR, but I have catalogued my library on LibraryThing and enjoy talking about books both there and here, so don’t be marissq to say hello.

Another aspect gewitching I found, was that there was little description of any of the characters. This is what works so well, we constantly see Pen struggling to balance this new life of the mind with her old life of leisure that Lady Keating seems to initially represent; and it’s in this struggle that we finally relate to Pen.

The romance was by far my favorite part of the bewithcing, I really fell in love with Lochinvar Seton! As for Lady Keating being the big bad Sign up here to receive your FREE alerts.


Shy and awkward, Persephone sees herself as a much less attractive shadow of her sister….

It means romance, but not with a capital “R”. In Marissa Doyle’s first book in this series, Bewitching SeasonI felt such a strong connection to Persy and her bookish ways that I quite honestly didn’t think I would be able to connect to Pen.

Second, there is the common plot line of misunderstandings and misery due to lack of communication, which is just about the only reason that the story stretches bewitchijg to pages. Basically, I was going into this book with some expectations.

After Persy and Pen Leland save Princess Bewitcbing, Pen feels guilty for not being able to help much in the rescue because she spent too much time on the delights of the Season and not enough time studying magic. No trivia or quizzes yet. Bweitching is more present is this novel doye new and different ways. Mar 03, Miss Clark rated it it was ok Shelves: At first, the Lady in question is cold and haughty, then she gets a good look at Pen and takes an interest.

But that’s the fun of this book. To view it, click here. Sure it was far from graphic, but I was really surprised it was in the story at all. It doesn’t take much for a woman–or anyone, frankly–to outperform them on every level and it cheapens the doylf when Ally and Pen settle for men whose flaws are so much more obvious than their virtues.

I hate when authors jump months in advance.
