If Graylee Perez thought sharing a body with her twin sister was bad, dealing with a duplicate of herself is two times worse. Gray the second doesn’t seem to get that Lee’s boyfriend, Raj McKenna, is off limits. Then there’s the problem of Adrian Montez. He expects one of the Grays to be his.

Nearly a year later, the council is onto them for past misdeeds; Lee, along with the rest of the coven, has lost control of her powers; and Gray is being stalked by what looks like the Grim Reaper.

If they work together, they may stand a chance of setting things right and making it out alive.

“Lee found it difficult to concentrate on mathematics, when all she could think about was jumping her boyfriend’s bones.”

Note: This review may contain some spoilers if you’ve not yet read Entangled.  You can see my review of Entangled here.
Duplicity is a wonderful followup to the first in Nikki Jefford’s Spellbound Trilogy.  Nikki’s writing has clearly gotten stronger and makes this an even better read than Entangled.  The story line involving the two Gray’s is compelling and raises all the right questions. And poor Raj…I can’t imagine how confusing that must have been for him trying to figure out how to act around both of them!  I know that I had a hard time myself…alternately feeling sorry for one or the other, or rooting for one or the other!

I loved the growth that the characters demonstrated since Entangled and throughout Duplicity. The reintroduction of Adrian Montes was a pleasant surprise as he is a complex and compelling character who I hope to see more of in the final installment of this series. I also hope that we learn a little bit more about his very mysterious past.

With constant action and loads of mystery and suspense as well as plenty of fun, Duplicity draws you in and doesn’t let go. I thoroughly enjoyed Duplicity and recommend the Spellbound series to any YA readers looking for a fun witchy read!

Note: Duplicity does have a bit of mature content and is probably better suited to the older YA reader.
