      Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:*eARC received from NetGalley.If you follow my reviews, you know that I'm a huge Maggie Shayne fan. I love her writing, I love her worlds, I love her characters This book most certainly did not disappoint. In fact, my exact words upon finishing the book were: "Unbelievably, amazingly, fantastically good!! Writing a review to do this justice may prove to be difficult. I simply loved it."Even with that said though, let's tryDaughter [...]

      Lettura abbastanza scontata,un po' lenta e solo il mistero della madre trovata senza conoscenza,mi ha portato a proseguire.Lena,la protagonista, a volte,mi è sembrata proprio con il prosciutto sugli occhi: passa il tempo a divinare il calice eente,proprio non ci arriva a capirePerò ho apprezzato il finale e anche che fosse una gatta nera a far capire alla strega come stanno le cose.

      Lena & Ryan's story is engrossing, and captures the imagination. Looking forward to the rest of this series.

      Review originally posted on my blog: A Book ObsessionIt's the same old story, a girl meets a wealthy playboy and falls head over heels, gets pregnant and then runs when he continues to be a playboy. Only this time, the girl is actually a witch, and the playboy is the man who has been starring in her dream visions since she was a child. So when Ryan shows up at her doorstep wanting a role in both her and their child's life, she is hopeful, yet also wary. She's isn't quite sure who to trust, espec [...]

      Daughter of the Spellcaster by Maggie Shayne 4 STARSDaughter 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 s [...]

      I'm really loving this series. It's made me want to track down some of Maggie Shayne's other books and series. Daughter of the Spellcaster takes readers one step closer to revealing what exactly lies behind The Portal waiting to be freed.Daughter of the Spellcaster is the story of Lena and Ryan. Lena knew from the beginning that Ryan was her soul mate, but Ryan wasn't ready for commitment and definitely not a child. At least Lena didn't think so. That's why she left him before he even knew he wa [...]

      Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyDAUGHTER OF THE SPELLCASTER reveals a story of magic, redemption, and a love that spans across life times. I really enjoy the worldbuilding in The Portal series and DAUGHTER OF THE SPELLCASTER expands on this world by introducing more characters and exciting flashbacks. While rehashing the same event from the past in multiple books can become tedious, Shaye managed to keep my interest by adding more details and different character perspectives on that s [...]

      I don’t like spoilers, so I’m avoiding them here as much as possible, while still giving an opinion.Ms. Shayne knows the buttons to push on a mom, that’s for sure. I still remember being pregnant, and pretty much hating it, especially at the end with the round ligament pain, and the waddling, and the inability to sleep for more than 20 minutes at a time, constant bathroom breaks, and the heartburn!… Lena has it a little easier by the sound of it… until she has to start running for her [...]

      SERIE THE PORTAL n. 2L'ho trovato più statico e un pò ripetitivo rispetto al primo.Qui si parla della seconda sorella Lena, che in questa vita è un strega e da piccola aveva avuto la visione di quanto successo in Babilonia, ma essendo piccola pensava insieme a sua madre che fosse solo una sua fantasia. Questo fino a che da adulta incontra il principe dei suoi sogni: è il figlio di un suo cliente.Da un lato mi è piaciuto lei che scopre di essere la reincarnazione della strega, il suo amore r [...]

      As a huge fan of Maggie Shayne, I was very excited to learn she had written a Trilogy about Warrior witches and the men that love them. The first installment, Mark of the Witch, was an especially well-written introduction to this series. While you could jump right in and start with Daughter of the Spellcaster, I recommend you first read Mark of the Witch. Then immediately follow it up with Blood of The Sorceress. The final book is the capstone; it ties the series up perfectly.As for Daughter of [...]

    15. Shay Williams on said:

      Wow! It's not very often that on comes across a book that is fairly accurate when it comes to Wicca. And the reason that I only say fairly is that the element of fantasy was introduced. But it does a fantastic job of showing basic spellwork and explaining some of the rites. As you can tell I am rather impressed by DAUGHTER OF THE SPELLCASTER. I just loved Lena, Ryan and Lena's mom Selma. All great characters portrayed with a deft touch. Rather then being one dimensional we get to see them in bot [...]

      Daughter of the Spellcaster is the second book in Maggie Shayne's trilogy, The Portal. Right now I have mixed emotions about this book. While I'm fascinated with the world Ms. Shayne has created, I didn't connect with the heroine, Lena, at all. A few times I wanted to smack her upside the head and tell her to get a clue. I got so damn frustrated with her that I just wanted the book to end. I found that surprising because I loved the heroine of book one, Mark of the Witch. My issue with Lena asid [...]

      Maggie has done it again! Daughter of the Spellcaster was a great book that follows in the footsteps of Mark of the Witch to perfection. I had the pleasure of reading this e-arc from Netgalley and it doesn't disappoint in the least. This is the story of Magdalena or "Lena" who is one of 3 sisters from a past life in Babylon and her love Ryan. There was a good amount of mystery, suspense and romance all throughout the book. Its not one of those books that is full of sex so if that is what you are [...]

    18. J.M. Schroder on said:

      I started out not really caring for this book. It was really easy to get into, but I hated the fact it did not include the others from the first book. Well at least that is what I thought. She intertwines things so meticulously it draws you in and makes you become intertwined in the minds of the characters. Lena the witch in this story is Magdelena who is pregnant with her loves child that she leaves, all which is on the back of the book. But the things and reasoning you come to find out are all [...]

    19. Michelle the Romance Witch on said:

      This is an interesting trilogy for sure, with magic, mystery, and layers of mysticism. The relationships in the novels are sometimes secondary to the grand scheme of the plot, but they are beautiful to see unfold. I am looking forward to the final story when Lilia and her man will finally be reunited. Although I am unsure how that will all come about since neither of them are corporeal and both aren't so much reincarnated as released from the spirit world they have been trapped in over the mille [...]

      Daugther of the Spellcaster was such a great book. This is book 2 of the Portal Series. I loved it. Everything in it that I love, romance, suspense, mystery, magic and action.Such a fast paced story. This was so intense and hard to put down. A great mystery had me wondering throughout who was "Evil" and who wasn't.Lena (Magdalena) and Ryan together were perfect. True soul mates. Ryan, a playboy, cant get Lena out of his head even after so many months being apart. Finding out she's pregnant with [...]

      First I want to say how much I'm enjoying this series so far,this review is for the second book.Maggie Shayne does a wonderful job with entwining past and the present,so that it isnt confusing.A young pregnant woman,Lena who is also a witch starts having dreams of her life of long ago.The babys father is a rich playboy named Ryan.At first he doesnt know about the baby,until a tragedy brings them back together again.Weapons of magic are given to them both.Ryan follows Lena back to where she lives [...]

      An amazing sequel that can stand on it’s own. Maggie Shayne delivers strong characters that you will not forget. I was immediately drawn to this book because I think the writing and mysteries were much more compelling than they were in the first book.Maggie Shayne immediately takes us into the past and it’s interesting how the past lives are intertwined into the current day of these characters. We are shown Lena’s childhood and it’s a nice one. Yet there are things that happen in a visio [...]

      The Portal series is well written, has twist that hold the readers attention and interest, and keeps the reader wanting more. The first book in this series, Mark of The Witch,grabs the reader and sucks them in with new twists and a different spin than what most books on this subject have. Although I enjoyed the first book more, Daughter of The Spellcaster is still a great read. The fact that two books fit so well together readers will find themselves hooked and wanting more. I can't wait for the [...]

    24. Shay on said:

      Lena annoyed me just a bit. She is supposed to be an all powerful witch but she can't pick up on who around her is being controlled by an "evil" spirit. I am very glad that Maggie Shayne made the mother/daughter bond so tight in this book. I didn't realize until I read this book how much that is missing in romance books. It was nice, I hope more authors do that. I was also afraid her mother would be killed off but so glad that didn't happen. I would have been upset. I also wished that Lilia and [...]

    25. K. Anna Hardy on said:

      One of the things that I really love about this series is that you can tell Maggie Shayne is writing about something she's really passionate about! The story is a fun ride with very well fleshed out characters that you really do want to see work things out, but even beyond that, this book is filled with examples of Wicca culture that one does not typically find in fiction. And that is because the rites aren't being cooked up by an outsider to serve the purposes of the story. Now, the rest of my [...]

    26. Rosalie on said:

      Even better than the first one. The ongoing saga is really starting to take shape now as we learn more of what happened in the past. I love the detail that Maggie Shayne is well qualified to write about. So many stories have come out over the years with vague references to the Craft and a little sprinkling of herbal magic thrown in for effect.Maggie Shayne's knowledge gives the story more substance and believability.I loved Lena and her mother, their warm and caring relationship and the gorgeous [...]

      As I read the second installment in the series, not including the .5 prequel, I thanked my lucky stars all I had to deal with in my two pregnancies was a few days of morning sickness and wobbly balance. As for Lena full-blown running scene during labor - a mother is capable of miraculous feats when their child is in danger. For me at nine months along, I couldn't manage more than a brisk walk but then again, I was in NO danger. :)For the "villain" in this story, I knew who the bad guy was suppos [...]

      This was a huge improvement over the first book in the series. Lena is a practicing witch who meets Ryan a player with a rich father. Eight weeks later Lena finds out she is pregnant and leaves knowing Ryan will think she got pregnant on purpose. Flash forward until Lena is eight months a long and she finds out that Ryan's father has died. She goes to the funeral and runs into Ryan who is quite shocked to realise he is going to be a father. He follows her back home and then witchy things happen. [...]

    29. Stephanie on said:

      I almost gave this book 1 stars. I could not get into it at all. Lena was so whinny and back and forth. Ryan was utterly boring and Bahru what a waste of a good villain. The ending was just blahI think the only reason why it got 2 stars was because I actually finished the book. I am a busy mom and would rather spend precious moments with books that leaving me constantly wishing I could have the characters as my BFFs in real life or just swooning when it is over. Unfortunately, this book left me [...]
