Book Review: The Tethered Trilogy by Jennifer Snyder

Hey guys!  I want to thank Mrs. Snyder for the chance to review these three books and a huge thanks to AToMR Tours for the chance as well.  
I want to apologize for not getting this post up earlier; my Internet has been down all weekend and I have been stressed to say the least!  
Thanks again and enjoy!




Title: The Tethered Trilogy
Author: Jennifer Snyder


Catalyst Summary:


Sometimes who we really are lies buried just beneath the surface…
After learning she’s inherited a house in the beachside town of Soul Harbor, Georgia, Addison Harmon and her best friend decided to take a much needed vacation before the pressures of life after high school suffocate them too heavily.


But what Addison finds isn’t a chance to recoup from a bad break up and hang out with her best friend while she decides what she wants to do with her future. What she finds is Kace Sullivan—a sexy guy she can’t seem to get enough of—someone who with one touch reveals a seductive world full of magick and secrets Addison isn’t sure she’s ready to be a part of.

My Thoughts:

So, I seriously believe that Addison is a shadow of me???  I just moved from North Carolina to GA and I was actually from GA before I moved to NC to start with.  This is like my life here; except for the magick and all the fine young specimens on the beach.  But I digress...
I enjoyed the magical element to the story.  I found Addison an interesting character and I loved how she accepted the fact that she was different pretty easily.  I also enjoyed how there is this bad girl side to her but she is pretty level headed for the most part.
I love the town of Soul Harbor!!!  I have always thought GA has this insane magical element to it and I just love that  the author included that in the story.  I really felt the mysterious aura surrounding the small town that Addison moves to!
We have some interesting characters and I love Theo!  Yes, he seems like a bad boy but I would fall for him hands down every time, instead of Kace.

All in all, I  believe Catalyst is the perfect sexy love story to get you in the mood for summer or that one more summer fling before life comes back!

Very awesome!



Conjure Summary:


Sometimes to understand the present you have to conjure up the past…
The last thing Addison Harmon needed was to become tethered to the broody, often seemingly cold, Theo Van Rooyen, but that’s exactly what happened.


Forced to partner up with Theo to figure out a way to break the tether, Addison soon realizes she may have bitten off more than she can chew.
My Thoughts:
Conjure really picks it up a notch in the fire (no pun intended) department!  Addison is so lucky (yes I said it!) to have been tethered to Theo but now she wants to figure out a way to break it.  We get to see a complex side of Theo.  He isn't just this bad boy we thought he was in the first book; but instead he is a very unusual Hoodoo artist as well.  
I can understand the emotions Addison is going through while interacting with Theo and Kace at the same time.  I had already figured some of the mysteries that are revealed in Conjure out already but I still enjoyed the deliverance of them too.  

I just really don't like Kace!  Sorry, he just seems so off.  And it is funny because his friend Adam is supposed to be the dick; but I just think Kace has this holier than thou attitude that I just can't get with.  
We learn a little more about Addison's power and more about the Hoodoo powers as well.  I found this very interesting and I would love to read some more books based off of these type of magical beings.  You can really tell the research the author does into the magick rules and explanations.  It is a very interesting genre and I love to read anything and everything about witches, Voodoo, Hoodoo, etc.  

I loved Conjure so much!  



Confined Summary:


Sometimes the things in life that seem to confine us most are often the ones that save us…
To Addison Harmon becoming initiated appeared to hold the answers to her every problem—all except what she would do after, when the tether was finally broken. But when the after Addison imagined isn’t the one unfolding before her, she finds herself tangled even further in a web of secrets, lies, and betrayal.
It’s not until Addison is captured by the last person she ever suspected would betray her that she’s forced to rely on herself for survival.
Questions will be answered. Trust will be misplaced. And hearts will be broken.

My Thoughts: 
Holy Crap!!  There has been a lot that has happened and I wasn't expecting the ending I got!  In a way,  I was hoping there was a little more action but then I think maybe it was better it ended this way.  Addison, I think, could have stood up a little more for herself in this one, but we do get to see Theo come to the rescue and that is always enjoyable.   
Who loved Theo's cousin?  I adored her and I would love to see a spinoff with her; maybe a prequel?  I think everything ends up the way it should, thank goodness!  I was actually a little sad to say goodbye to Soul Harbor and the gang!  Maybe we will get another novella just to see what is happening with everyone.  I would really like that!  We learn about betrayals, and we learn the sad truth with Addison's mom.  I would have also liked a way for Addison to meet her birth mother (maybe in a magical way with her ghost??) and that could have played an interesting role too!

But all in all, I enjoyed this series!  It gives us the sex appeal, as well as the magick and paranormal aspects that we need and love!  It has definitely put me in research mode because I want to learn everything about these interesting magick descriptions.    
If you are looking for a fun, sexy and witchy good time then The Tethered Trilogy is definitely up your alley!
