First Sentence
THE MORNING WAS BRISK as Cindy Jones stepped from her house to fetch the newspaper at the end of the driveway. She had grown up in the Rockies, but still the first breath of early mountain air always filled her with an invigorating freshness that was both surprising and pleasant. Read the first page

A Review by Josh
This is the tale of a young man named Alex. Alex is a normal person until strange things start happening around him after one of his classmates is suspected of brutally murdering his girlfriend. These events build and form into a truly ridiculous climax (for a horror novel).
´¿This book had potential.´¿ That´¿s what I think when I look back upon reading this book. I honestly believe that this book had a semi-interesting story which could have been made MUCH better, had the author not written it like some kind of comic book. The book´¿s just plain corny! It also doesn´¿t make much sense and is not written in an easily understandable format. For example, the story keeps fairly believable up until it gets close to the end, where there are waterfalls of blood or something like that, gigantic birds swooping at people, and even African exchange students uncovering their secret African Shaman powers (how lame does it get?). It hardly even follows with the summary given on the back cover, which is why I read the stupid thing in the first place, and is usually the reason that anybody ever reads a book. That´¿s false advertising! The only recommendation I´¿m giving on this book is to not bother with it, it´¿s just not worth it´¿.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Christopher Pike story yet!! Nov. 9 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Do you like a mystery? Do you like a murder mystery? Do you like an exciting murder mystery? Well if you do, read Spellboud. This is an exciting book with some action. When I read this book there was nothing to do to get me away from reading this book. In the story love is combined with daring acts. When the story begins a young lady has been murdered by a supposed grizzly bear. Was it really a grizzly or was it something else? What kin of spell was cast? This book is a really good book and I recommend that you read it. I really like this book so I know you will.

A murder shocks a small town. It looks like a wild animal might have committed the crime (a la Poe's Murder in the Rue Morgue), but a local teenager is not so sure. A supernatural twist later and we get one of the most powerful Pike explanations ever. And it saves the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spellbound March 10 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was the first Christopher Pike book I ever read, and it spawned an addiction (or obsession depending on how you look at it!) It filled me with both fear and surprise. I found it intruiging, and powerful. It filled the void in my reading, as I had been looking for a long time for something, and didn't know what, this was it. The creativity of the "beast" in this book was exceptional, and it was a different, and more powerful writing style that I had ever found before. Pike's style is wonderful and captavating, and I love each and every one of his works. The setting is perfect, and the story is magical, it left me with chills. I couldn't put the book down! I recommend this book to everyone, get to know one of the greatest writers of the 20th century!

Spellbound was the first CP book I read, it was great! If your're a first time Christopher Pike reader this will get you hooked! If you're an expirienced CP reader you'll appreciate his work in this book! It's about a group of teenagers looking for fun, but one of them is looking to clear his record. It takes place in a beautiful mountain town where some unexpected visitors arrive. Like the grandson of a Shaman in Africa and a quiet English beauty with entrancing eyes! You're sure to love it!
