Things aren’t always as they appear…

New school. Cross-country move. Broken heart. If only these were Emma Guthrie’s worst problems. Instead, she must battle a trio of enemies—human and spectral—who may or may not have joined forces against her and everyone she loves. All while pretending to be over Cooper Beaumont, her ex-boyfriend and true love, to shield him from her arch-nemesis’s revenge.

Worse, when the fight escalates, Emma is tempted to use black magic, which will endanger her soul. As her enemies close in, join forces, and fight with new and dark magic she’s never seen before, Emma must harness the power within her to fulfill an ancient prophecy, defeat a centuries-old evil, save her family, and reclaim the only boy she’s ever loved.

Once picking this up and diving in, it didn't take me long to remember why I loved this series so much.
With it's rather unique premises and wonderful writing, I was quickly once again immersed in the story and couldn't wait to see how it all ended for Jack, Emma, and Cooper.

Filled with the eery,... ...more

Rating 4.5/5
Right from the start this is a racy, action packed adventure moving on swiftly from the previous two novels in this series. You dont need to have read the earlier novels as the author does an excellent job of filling in any gaps in your knowledge about what has already happened but if... ...more

By Jennifer July 18, 2019

I'm not sure this finish to the Hoodoo Apprentice series quite lived up to the first two books in the trilogy, but then again, it had a lot to live up to. All told, it was a satisfying end to the series even if it did feel a bit rushed at times. I would have liked more, I admit--books two and thr... ...more

Note: This is the third book in the series, but I have omitted any spoilers.

Ive been very busy with work lately, and I havent really had the time to read or blog. However, I certainly couldnt pass up reading and sharing about the last book of the Hoodoo Apprentice series. Ive pretty much been wai... ...more

I went over my previous review to remember where Allure had left off. Not only did I find my place, but I recouped the joy I experienced stepping into the world building of Lea Nolan. Emma, our intrepid heroine, squares off against dark magic from the onset and youre fighting alongside her until... ...more

The content was good. My favorite character is Cooper. He is so patient and sure of himself and Emma. Her brother was a hoot. I love how he is into the research and history of the area and the families from generations past.

I will say this if you haven t read the previous books like I havent you... ...more

Ok so i got this book from the publisher, my only concern is why did i hear about it just now when is the last book out, this trilogy is amazing.

This was a first read for me by Lea Nolan. I thought that I would be lost in the series after not having read the first two but decided to give this one a shot and I was not disappointed at all. I was able to catch up by how Lea went back and recapped some of the events in the previous books in t... ...more

I received a free copy of this book by the book's publishers via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

When I requested Illusion, I did not realise that it was part of a series so I'm jumping in at the end here. Despite this, I still really enjoyed it! Nolan catches you up to speed with wha... ...more

Although, I'm sad that the trilogy has ended, I'm happy to know Emma and her family finally have a HEA. I can't say it enough how much I enjoyed this trilogy and I look forward to buying the books with their new covers soon to place in my book case. This is... ...more

This is the third book of a trilogy, but each book in the series may be read as a stand-alone.

Each of these books are so different than any other that I have read. Ms. Nolan concluded this series well, although I could see her branching out with a few of the characters.. I was lost in the story,... ...more

By Sherry February 22, 2016

I think I liked this book best out of the series. 3.5 Stars. I really enjoyed the ending. I did forget that Emma is only 14 (almost 15). She seemed (and her brother) mature for her age, but then I again I remember being more mature than most around that age. Did I mention I liked the ending? All... ...more

By Stephanie (Purdueliz) October 14, 2015

I think this might just be the best series ending book ever. Ms. Nolan wrapped things up wonderfully with Emma, Jack, and Cooper. And yet, it was not without heartache and a lot of hard work to get there. No perfectly wrapped bows here. Which is what made it even better. I will very much look for... ...more

This is a wonderful YA read. Perfect for a teen or a person who want the paranormal but not the sex.

I was kind of at a loss because I hadn't read the first book but I caught on very quick. I love all things witchcraft related and hoodoo is a branch of witchcraft.

Dark forces are at play and Jack... ...more

Such a terrific end to the series! Lots of scary evil that grossed me out just enough. A tenacious heroine who you can't stop rooting for, even when she makes mistakes. A dreamy guy that stands by her no matter how hard she tries to shake him. Tons of fun spell stuff, right alongside sweet romanc... ...more
