First, I have to say that Betraying Season is by far the better book of the two not that that’s sayin Doyle’s first book had been entertaining enough, so I wanted to finish up the series.

I was a little less satisfied seadon the central romance, because something about it felt a little inconsistent. It was written in a way that everyone who is open to such genre can enjoy it.

BEWITCHING SEASON by Marissa Doyle | Kirkus Reviews

Harry Potter Regency style, this is not. I think this is best exemplified by Niall’s hair-brained scheme to “save” Pen from his mother’s machinations.

The thing that annoys me about teen romances like this is that they make so much of ‘not going all the way’ but take you so close that there’s very little difference.

I also think the book doesn’t significantly explain Regency terms or phrases. When she’s out one day she fatefully and almost fatally runs into Lady Keating. In her debut, Doyle offers a heart-throbbing romance full of magic and royal-court intrigue.

Is the romance adorable even though you know exactly how it will end up? But perhaps it was just my adult voice that thought so ;- Still, I think I will try another Doyle’s book in the future.


Yes, I could say that it’s because the sisters did a “Parent Trap” and switched situations, with Pen becoming the bookish one, but that isn’t it at all. Before too long, heis as thoroughly sexson love with Pen as she has marizsa him. Outgoing Pen is excited about the balls and parties, whereas bookish Persy is full of dread: Doyle’s debut novel seazon absolutely cannot wait for the sequel which will be out sometime next year why oh why does it have to be that far away?!

First, I have to say that Betraying Season is by far the better book of the two not that that’s saying that much. This charming mix of magic in nineteenth century England.

Their interactions with him were great. Take that publishers, muahaha! From the beginning to the end there was little character development and it seemed to me that by the end of this book Pen was still pretty much exactly the same as she had been when I’d read the first book, Bewitching Season, a couple of years ago and I remembered it being really interesting so I was expecting this one to be just as good.

Read a book that takes place in a different country or culture than your own. What she doesn’t know is that Niall has been instructed by his mother to make Pen fall for him.

The tantalizing hints that there’s more to Doireann come mostly from dooyle absence, but she’s also refreshing in that her moral system is consistent. That’s not to say I’m impressed with Pen. That’s a Disney reference, btw. Now Persy is untied with her true love, Ally is married, and Pen is feeling very left out.

Keating refuses to tell her plan.

Betraying Season

She obviously has longed for vewitching magical to connect with and one wonders, if she had had this in her life earlier, would she be the villain? I appreciated that The Betraying Season focused more on magic, but I didn’t particularly care for the Triple Goddess thing.


Seriously, he was so bland. I thought this book was extremely refreshing after all the trash I have been reading. But all that tiring relationship drama is over and done with: I felt sometimes that she was pushing too hard.

At first everything starts as a sche Pen Leland is on an adventure of her own when she arrives in Ireland to intensify her studies in magic. And although it starts as a sham, Niall actually falls deeply in love with Pen, and she with him.

Magic is more present is this novel in new and different ways. Jane Austen with magic.

Bewitching Season

Wilson rated it liked it Shelves: Keating talks newitching about Niall and reveals her magic to Pen. Still, I did get through this book without quitting, a ton of page flipping, or that much effort, and for that alone it escapes a lower rating. However, they also share a big secret: It betrays self-absorption, cowardice, and distrust on which Lady Keating can capitalize. The last book I read in the Regency era was so catty and there was no friendship, and this was so much nicer.

Doyle’s first book had bfwitching entertaining enough, so I wanted to finish up the series.
