Under His Spell: 08/16/18
Under His Spell by Marie P. Croall and Hyeondo Park is the fourth of the My Boyfriend is a Monster graphic novel series. Each one of these is a standalone story featuring a different type of paranormal romance.
Bethany Farmer is devoted to the game of soccer. She doesn't want romance. She wants to win. Then her world is turned upside down by the arrival of a strange exchange student, Allein. Soon she finds herself in the middle of the Seelie / Unseelie kingdoms.
This volume is different from the previous ones in that it incorporates color to separate the mundane, human world, from the land of the fae. The contrast of color brings to mind the MGM adaptation of The Wizard of Oz (1939) where Oz was used to sell Technicolor to the masses.
But here's the thing, I am still bored with this fae story. I know it's a classic. I know it's part of my culture. But it's been done to death, especially recently in the realm of paranormal urban fantasy.
The fifth book is I Date Dead People by Ann Kerns.
