Life is almost back to normal for Harper Price. The Ephors have been silent after their deadly attack at Cotillion months ago, and best friend Bee has returned after a mysterious disappearance. Now Harper can return her focus to the important things in life: school, canoodling with David, her nemesis-turned-ward-slash-boyfie, and even competing in the Miss Pine Grove pageant.

Unfortunately, supernatural chores are never done. The Ephors have decided they’d rather train David than kill him. The catch: Harper has to come along for the ride, but she can’t stay David’s Paladin unless she undergoes an ancient trial that will either kill her . . . or connect her to David for life.


First book: Rebel Belle

Book one has a fun Harper, witty and ‘‘laugh out loud-worthy’’ dialogs, an entertaining storyline and a very fast pacing, while Miss Mayhem depicts a slightly out-of-control Harper, pleasant dialogs, a plot that is closer to the contemporary world than the supernatural one and a pacing that is relatively fast, too.

Miss Mayhem doesn’t live up to its first book, but is a sequel worth reading, for Harper’s narration will never bore you and the characters around her embellish the story with their unidealized and engaging personality.

  1. When I first heard about Rebel Belle last year, I took one look at the cover, and was sold until I read the synopsis. My bookish tastes are alot different now than they were when I first started blogging, so now I’m reading to read both books! I’m in the mood for something light, funny, and fast paced, so I’ll be picking these up soon 🙂


  2. It’s a shame this sequel wasn’t as great as the first book, but it is good to know it was still a fun enough read. I have been meaning to try the first book in this series for a while and it is still on my TBR! Looking forward to it ^.^
