OVERVIEW
(from Goodreads)

When the Solstice Stones end in blood and chaos, Lily's destiny and the coven's future hang in the balance.

***

Every young witch looks forward to her first Solstice Stones. The pride of representing her coven against the warlocks. The rush from her first taste of dark magic.

But a few short minutes into the Stones, and Lily’s lifelong dream turns into a nightmare of pain and regret. Betrayed not once, but twice, her restraint snaps—with dire consequences.

Lily is wracked with guilt and on the run from the powerful Congression, when her broken confidence is further shattered by an ugly secret from the past. As her options dwindle, Lily is forced into a distasteful alliance.

Will she be able to find her way back to the light? Or will darkness consume her before dawn's new day?

About the Author
Heidi R. Kling is a YA author of both fantasy and contemporary novels. The bestselling Witch’s Brew Spellspinners 1 (Coliloquy), is the first of a 9-book series, while her debut contemporary, Sea (Penguin), was an Indie Next Pick, Northern California Book of the Year nominee, Gateway Reader’s Award choice.
Witch’s Brew Spellspinners 1 launched The Spellspinners of Melas County series in 2012. A serialized saga of estranged witches and warlocks, set in a modern, but fantastical world of a coastal California beach town is told in an innovative “active fiction” format— not unlike the “Choose Your Own Adventure” books we loved as kids. Book two, The Gleaning, followed this past spring. Devil’s Frost, the third book in the series launches November 2013, with six titles to follow.
When not penning novels, Heidi contributes short stories and essays to teen lit aimed anthologies such as Truth And Dare, The First Time, A Visitor’s Guide To Mystic Falls, and Two & Twenty Dark Tales, directs and writes children’s theatre and feeds her Damon addiction with lots of CW television.
After earning her MFA in Writing for Children from the New School in New York, she returned to her native California where she writes and lives with her husband and two children on the San Francisco peninsula, right over the coastal mountains from the sea. She’s constantly eying seaside eucalyptus groves for signs of warlocks, but sadly hasn’t spotted one. Yet.

REVIEW
It seems like this series isn't one that you can leave on the shelf and forget.  It draws you in and once you're in, you are HOOKED.  You can just sit down in your easy chair and pick up where ever you had left off reading.  It's like Heidi's world and characters have become part of your world.  If you haven't read book 2, I would suggest it.  It will leave you wondering what will await you in the next book.
 After you have read one book in The Spellspinners of Melas County, you are ready for the next.  The author does a good job of not boring you with a lot of repeats of what happened before, just a little hint here and there.
Lily and Logan, a magical couple, have to find a way to be together after their first Gleaning.  But it seems problems are lurking everywhere.  There is Lily (via Orchid) and Logan (via Jude) and some eye openers from Iris and Jacob. Will they endure? Maybe a little honesty between them would help. The author keeps you intrigued with the different ways things are seen through the eyes of the different characters.  It seems like you can't get to know the characters well enough.  You constantly want to know more.
I would recommend you step into the world of The Spellspinners of Melas County to learn more of the characters and the world they live in.  Don't wait to pick up the series.  You are definitely missing out if you don't.  This is an action packed YA paranormal romance filled with much, twists, turns and drama that will keep you turning those pages as fast as you can.  You  will totally love the undersea adventures and the sexy romps on the beach.  To balance it out there is a big fight that you won't want to miss.
I would recommend this series to anyone who loves YA paranormal.  It will keep you coming back.

I was given a complimentary copy of DEVIL'S FROST by Heidi Kling from NightOwlReviews for my honest opinion.  No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 4 SPELLS.
