Publisher's Summary

Kiss him. Don't fall in love.

Break a spell with a kiss. Karina has heard and seen enough weird stuff for this request to sound legit. 

At 16, Karina has a shot at adventure--and an odd first kiss - when she's called to Whyland, a kingdom in another dimension, to save a guy she barely knows. Why her? No clue, but she's happy to help, and kissing Sian isn't torture, even if he isn't to be trusted. Karina's smart enough not to fall in love - or at least to tell herself not to.
 

Once in Whyland, she realizes that risking a broken heart is the smallest of her problems. When truths are unraveled, Karina will need to stand between an ancient darkness and the kingdom. But what hope does she have against mysterious powers when she can't even control her own heart?
 

If you like fantasy and adventure with a dash of romance, give Kissing Magic a try. This novel is recommended for listeners 13 and older. This is book two in Portals to Whyland series but you can jump straight into it without listening to book one.

I started with book 2

It was a fun listen I was just missing some info as the other books are not on here but I enjoyed it well enough that when they are I will give them a try as well.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Good Story

This is the first book I have read in this series and I feel that I was able to understand everything not having read book 1 - That being said, it was a decent enough story that I am intrigued enough to go back and read book 1 now. I enjoyed the easy pacing and descriptive writing. The narrator did a good job bringing the story and characters to life. I look forward to more from this author

Interesting Story!

This story is probably one of those hit-or-miss for most people, but I couldn't resist the blurb and am so glad I read this one! It reminds me of other books that I enjoyed with similar themes of trust, friendship, betrayal, danger, and love. The characters were interesting and I loved the concept and story-line. The middle did slow a bit, but overall I loved reading this and look forward to reading more in this world.

Romantic Adventure

Once again we are hurtling across the world of Whyland. This time will a request for a kiss to save a friend Sian who been turned to stone. This second book is more action packed, compelling, and the plot of is so multi layered that your left guessing at every twist and turn. The world building for this second book is more solid then in book one and we learn a lot more about the magic system. This book is appropriate for the teenage crowd though as the title suggests their a lot of kissing in the book. So boys are probably not gonna be as interested in the story line. Sian plays his character perfectly he cold, emotionless and you really hope that Karina is able to melt him into being a better character. Each character learns their own lessons as they develop in this story like all teens experience is the best teacher. Kissing magic really shows you what love can do and maybe just maybe a kiss can melt even the coldest hearts.

To kiss or not to kiss

I requested this audio because of my granddaughters visit. We all enjoyed this lighthearted story. Karina the MC has several choices to make, to go home or not, to trust or not, and to love or not. Hard choices in life. All is told in a kiss.
This audio was given to me free, and I voluntarily gave this review.

Good Read

Kissing Magic (Portals to Whyland #2) was a good read by Day Leitao. Sian isn't someone that you can trust. He is greedy, cunning, and selfish. Karina is asked to breaches spell with a kiss. She tells herself not to fall in love and believes that she is smart enough not to. Little did she know, Sian is enchanted in a mysterious, ancient castle where dark magic has been awakened. She finds herself hunted by creepy creatures and doesn't know why. Sian says he will keep her sage and deal with the dark magic. Karina doesn't know if she can really trust him. I enjoyed reading this book and can't wait to read more by the author.

A troubled Tale

A story full of magic, deceipt, understanding & love. Sian did not make things easy for Karina. She didn't know what to do. Love him or not. He was handsome & able to receive easily. A great story, well written and great characters. The narrator also did a great job.

A very good YA novel

A very good YA novel, second part of the series, this can be read as a standalone but you would benefit from reading book 1 first to give the story context. Very well written with good characters and storyline. Highly recommended for the age group
A change of narrator from book one has not affected the quality of the story
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

great finish

Good fun story, the characters overall feel remind me of fablehaven due to the youngness of characters but an overall great continuation of book one. the narrator did a good job and the author has created a fun world for the reader.
