Its multilayered plot makes it unpredictable.(...) What I really love about this tale is how the characters grow and develop as the story progresses. Levicorpvs Blog
The plot of the story, though heavy with action and magic, is actually a love story at its core. [...] It's easy to jump in with this second book, like I did. The setting of Whyland is fun and interesting world that will stand out among your other YA fantasy reads. The plot is fast paced and will keep you glued in until the end. Sarah Foil
It can definitely be read as a standalone. All said, it was an enjoyable book. Lots of YA romance. Rosie Rizk (Goodreads)

Kiss him. Don't fall in love.
Break a spell with a kiss. Karina has heard and seen enough weird stuff for this request to sound legit.
At 16, Karina has a shot at adventure—and an odd first kiss—when she's called to Whyland, a kingdom in another dimension, to save a guy she barely knows. Why her? No clue, but she's happy to help, and kissing Sian isn't torture, even if he isn't to be trusted. Karina's smart enough not to fall in love—or at least to tell herself not to.
Once in Whyland, she realizes that risking a broken heart is the smallest of her problems. Karina will need to stand between and ancient darkness and the kingdom. But what hope does she have against mysterious powers when she can't even control her own heart?
If you like fantasy and adventure with romance and some humor, give Kissing Magic a try. This novel is recommended for readers 13 and older. This is book 2 in Portals to Whyland series but you can jump straight into it without having read book 1.
