TheBlurbVScott and Olivia survive a nearly deadly school dance, but the aftermath of their meeting has everyone who loves them looking for answers. And when Olivia is thrust into a terrifying situation that pushes her to her limits, she must learn for herself what she is capable of.

She loves Scott, but her parents have disappeared, her grouchy brother has come back to town, and mysterious men are tailing them both. As mysteries swirl around Olivia’s family, Scott must help her discover more about who she truly is—while he races to find the last living descendant of Devlin Hart, the sorcerer who cursed the Tabors family.

With all of this, can their new love grow? It is further tested by an unexpected rival with a claim on Olivia’s heart. Scott will have to fight his jealousy to continue to woo the woman he loves.

With the stress of searching for so many answers on his shoulders, will Scott be able to keep Olivia’s heart?


★★★★☆ : Great! I liked this book!

Olivia Whitehead had gone missing. Someone took her, and Scott had no idea where to find her. His grandma and sister Sadie did their best to help him find Livvie, but it seemed like there was a powerful spell that forbade them from reaching out to her.

Aiden was beaten and was almost left for dead, all thanks to Scott after Aiden almost killed Livvy in the first book. In a surprising turn of events, Livvy found herself thrown in a dark place, with a boy who had no recollection of the evil things he’d done before. And that boy now had a different set of eyes. That boy was Aiden.

Olivia and Aiden were able to escape the clutches of their captor through Livvy’s newfound magic ability. It didn’t take long until Scott finally managed to find them, seething with jealousy after he saw the guy Olivia was with. Surprise, surprise!

Just like in the first book, I caught myself smirking with Scott, blushing like Livvy, in-love like Aiden and laughing with Sadie. The other new characters that were introduced provided more depth and element in the story, including Kyle and Juniper. All throughout the book, I waited with bated breath until I finally learned why the book was entitled The Vessel. In the end, my heart cried out for him because he had been through a lot. I wish I could take away his pain. And then there’s Devlin Hart’s descendant finally revealed. The one who was supposed to break the curse. Oh goodness, I really have to read the next book! Felicia Tatum’s writing prowess had me sold!

Realization: This book is on the YA/Fantasy genre – and I’m already an adult in mid-30s, and I still behaved like a teenager while reading this. Unforgivable!
