This is the second in the Unbidden Magic series and I'm still loving it. Allie is an extremely likeable lead, even if she is a little naive and trusting. This time round, she gets over Junior by meeting Beck (who's all geeky by day and sexy half demony by night) who turns out to be just what the moonstone ordered by healing her powers.

It bothers me that Allie mother, Faye, is so immature. Faye has said that her life was hard and she ran away from home, so how has this not forced her to grow up? She has a teenage daughter but still acts like a kid herself, somehow Allie has grown up as a very immature teenager (or maybe this is exactly what has made her this way). But that aside, I like the little moments of mother daughter interaction we get to see, they really are very good together.

Another little annoyance is how trusting Allie is, even after her mother getting kidnapped and Allie almost getting killed in the first book, she never seems suspicious enough for my liking. If I was her and had Trimarks after me trying to do god-knows-what to get the moonstone, I'd be wary of EVERYbody.

All in all though, this is a nice addition to the Unbidden Magic series and I can't wait to read the next.

Sequel rocks!! All hail Allie Emerson...and Marilee Brothers! 10 Sept. 2009
By K. Ashe - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As someone who writes YA fiction, I seem to gravitate towards reading it as well. In June as I left for the beach, I tossed Moonstone into my bag, hoping to get a few pages in while soaking in the rays. Yeah, a few pages didn't happen. I devoured the entire book...much to the aggravation of my beach companions. I LOVED it. Allie's voice is dead on as a teenager, and her humor is dead pan. The world Ms. Brothers creates feels so real(trailer life, high school hell) that you forget you're even reading fantasy.

So, I was thrilled to not have to wait long for the sequel. Once again, I planned a few pages before bed. I have to blame Ms. Brothers for a poor performance at school the next day because I stayed up TOO late reading.

Like Moonstone, Moon Rise sucks you in. How can you not be sucked in when the first page reveals there's a serial ass pincher on the loose? Will the criminal go free, or will his ass pinching days come to an end? This is just one of the many questions the reader faces. First, I was devastated to learn the hunky hearthrob and protector, Junior Martinez, had gone away to Mexico. But the eye candy isn't missing. Enter Beck, a half demon and whole hottie! Yeah, his twin sister can be a pain, but she's got some redeeming qualities as well.

What makes Moon Rise and the Unbiden Magic series so wonderful is the fact that the magic is woven into the real life experiences. Allie doesn't feel worthy to be "the one" to save the world from the evil Trimarks, nor does she feel worthy in the pressence of her once absent father. Like all teens, she struggles with her mother, Faye, especially with Faye's choice of men. And the school bully's are more than just your average bully; they're packing some supernatural punch.

As a writer and someone who spends time with teens on a regular basis, I feel Marilee Brothers and her Unbiden series is literary gem. And you're doing yourself a diservice if you don't pick it up and enter Allie's world.

very good 3 Aug. 2010

Moon Rise is the second in the Unbidden Magic series. I really was impressed with the first in this series. I happened across and immediately was drawn into this new world. I was tired of the usual witch, vampire, werewolf sagas that seemed to be overflowing everywhere and this was a perfect escape. This follows a few months where the last one left off. The main characters were back: Allie, Kizzy, Faye, the Trimarks; with the one exception of Junior..which made me sad. I really liked Junior in the first one and was sad for his absence. So, we find Allie is dealing with some major stress over her recent attack and the consequential death of a man who wanted to kill her. She is drowning in it and has lost her powers on top of it. Plus, she now knows her father but he's still basically absent unless he's talking to her about the moonstone. Slowly Allie learns to trust Beck and his sister Nikki who are half demon children. It's touch and go at first and I wasn't sure I was happy with the Junior replacement, but in the end I really liked them as additions to the story.

This addition to the series adds tremendously to the plot. You get to keep watching the current characters develop and meet some new ones. I couldn't put it down. You are kept guessing like a good mystery as to who the Trimarks are in this book and the suspense is addictive. A great read and I can't wait to read the third in the series. I am trying to pace myself since the author is still writing the 4th in the series and there is supposed to be 5 total. Hopefully, it won't be too long for it to be ready too.

Fun & Magical 4 Oct. 2009
By Wendy L. Hines - Published on
Format: Paperback
The sequel to Moonstone opens with Allie still without her powers. Allie is the chosen one, the girl who is the Star Seeker of an old gypsy prophecy. Her boyfriend Junior Martinez went on a trip to Mexico and still isn't back, and to beat it all, she has to attend school counseling sessions because of the big T (trauma) she had a while back. Then there is her dad, Mike Purdy, who still hadn't told his wife and kids about her. He is the one who is educating Allie about the prophecy and her new powers. He takes her to the Star Seeker meetings, where everyone there has the star on their palm.

Then there's the new boy at school, Beck Bradford. He's hot, he can heal Allie, and he's half demon. He and Allie become close, and he wants to fight all her battles. He helps her regain her powers and try to keep the moonstone safe. That's the pendant Allie wears and the Trimark, the darker polar opposite of the Star Seekers, wants it badly and they will do anything to get it, even kill.

The second book in the Unbidden Magic Series is absolutely wonderful! Allie's world is extended with the addition of more information about the prophecy and the addition of some unique and versatile characters. The action is page-turning and their are some gasp out loud surprises. I'm looking forward to the next in the series to see what happens in Allie's world next! Her supernatural world is expanding and she is learning how to find her place in it. Magically delicious!

Allie is back 23 Nov. 2009
By peaceloveandpat - Published on
Format: Paperback
The second book of Unbiddden Magic made this series "unputdownable", while I resent Faye for being an immature mom dating losers and being all patheic and sadly irresponsible it gave me a clue on why, she possess a secret that her daughter our refreshingly optomistic protagonist, Allie. But that detail will have to wait until book 3, which sadly is not due until February of 2010, and I have no information on the title yet. ( I will find out I promise)

Book two starts with Allie on her way to conjugate with the member of her world called the Star Seekers, where she was a guest of honor due to her previous adventures with the evil driven organization called Trimark, whose main purpose in life was to take the magical Moonstone from her by eliminating her out of their way and rule the world with their malevolent plans. He previous used of her Telekinetic power resulted in killing a Trimark memeber which in turn unleased the power of three. The main result was she lost her juice. Coincidently, some one new was there to help her. Beck Bradford, easy on the eyes and born with special powers too. Beck and her twin sister Nicole are half-demon. (Their mother was raped by an incubus). How did Beck helped her? He is a healer or a Shaman, and did some chanting and ritual that helped her loose the nightmares and the feeling of guilt. Not only did he helped Allie got her juice back, he now also held Allie's heart at present. Junior, Allie's supposedly boyfriend went to Mexico, possibly not returning anytime soon or ever.

Book two also revealed that there are two prophecies, one we already knew was about her and the other one involves something about the Trimark themselves. There were three villains this time. The one was obvious but the two others snaked their way in to get close to her. They did some pretty interesting magic on their end too. We also met Allie's estranged grandfather Claude, who gave Allie something to think about. "Ask you mother why is she so unhappy", "Ask her about her mother Melia" oh and he knows Allie's the plot thickens.
