Spellbound: The Books of Elsewhere, Volume 2 | [Jacqueline West]

Spellbound: The Books of Elsewhere, Volume 2

With no way into the house's magical paintings, and its three guardian cats reluctant to help, Olive's friend Morton is still trapped inside Elsewhere. So when Rutherford, the new oddball kid next door, mentions a grimoire - a spellbook - Olive feels a breathless tug of excitement. If she can find the McMartins' spellbook, maybe she can help Morton escape Elsewhere for good. Unless, that is, the book finds Olive first. The house isn't the only one keeping secrets anymore....

Publisher's Summary

With no way into the house's magical paintings, and its three guardian cats reluctant to help, Olive's friend Morton is still trapped inside Elsewhere. So when Rutherford, the new oddball kid next door, mentions a grimoire - a spellbook - Olive feels a breathless tug of excitement. If she can find the McMartins' spellbook, maybe she can help Morton escape Elsewhere for good. Unless, that is, the book finds Olive first.

The house isn't the only one keeping secrets anymore. Mystery, magic, corruption, and betrayal abound (plus just enough laughs to take the edge off). You'll never guess what happens next in this thrilling, chilling second volume in the critically acclaimed series.

    "Great book.My kids love it.Looking forward to more"
    What did you love best about Spellbound: The Books of Elsewhere, Volume 2?

    Creative, entertaining, scary, exciting, fun for my whole family.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Spellbound: The Books of Elsewhere, Volume 2?

    When Olive almost gets stuck in the picture frame at the end but instead just allows the bad guy get away. Why didn't she start her on fire!!!


    What does Lexy Fridell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    An obnoxious voice. The book was great, but we didn't like the readers voice impersonations of the other authors.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No. It was just enjoyable as a whole, not really extreme emotion provoking.

    "Ok kids fantasy, Didnt care for reader"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Hard to say. It was mildly interesting, though Olive's actions sometimes annoyed me. (I guess I should cut her a break since she is a kid, but still its hard to watch someone make bad decisions.) I was also hoping for more closure for Morton but if that's coming it will have to wait til a later book.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The is book 2 of a series of (at least) 4. Readers should know that this is basically a cliffhanger. You clearly need to read more books to finish the story of Olive, Morton and the cats. I'll probably read the next one but am not in a rush to do it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Lexy Fridell’s performances?

    I would but I really didn't like the voices she used for the characters. Very over the top.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, I think they could make a good movie if the story completes.

    "Attention Grabber for Kids"
    Where does Spellbound: The Books of Elsewhere, Volume 2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Excellent sequel to the original book. I couldn't wait to download the book and find out what happens. Listening to the audio really adds another dimension to reading the story. The narrator's voice draws you into the story!!!!!


    Which character – as performed by Lexy Fridell – was your favorite?

    The three cats - she captures their personalities to a T!
