Savannah and Adam are trying to negotiate the new boundaries of their relationship while hunting down a unique half-demon.

Thoughts

Seven months after the occurrences of 13, and Savannah and Adam are forced to negotiate and really look at what their new relationship means. The backdrop of a unique type of half-demon and their battle against the Cabals is a great way to raise the stakes in their activities. It also helps to highlight Savannah’s immensely complex relationship with the Cabals – primarily the tug of war between herself, the Cortez and Nast Cabals and how everything that happened in 13 just helped these already tenuous relationships completely implode.

I love the idea of Adam and Savannah, the age gap is kind of big, but Savannah’s maturity (Adam’s immaturity) and the way that they’ve grown together is kind of amazing. I literally cheered out loud when they finally got together towards the end of Spellbound and more officially in 13. Their own issues and independence mean that they both have a tendency to freak out about their relationship, and most of the personal storyline in this tale is about them finding a way to be themselves, and in a couple as well. The communication aspect might need a lot of work, but there is nothing like hunting down an unknown talent and facing up to other Cabals to put it through a pressure cooker.
