The 2nd book in the Bellerose Witchline trilogy by T.L. Brown jumps in with both feet and doesn’t stop. You will want to binge this book in one go, so clear your calendar! I was lucky enough to get an ARC, and at first I was reluctant to do so because I was so busy with work and family, but I have to tell you, I zipped through this book because I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN.
Crossing the Witchline takes Lucie Bellerose through the pits of Hell, and that’s probably the easiest thing she has to face! Where her own witch community seems the enemy and the demon is the closest thing she can find to an ally, this book throws convention in the trash and burns it alive!
I loved the additional shapeshifter character. While this book is quite heavy thematically, the levity that Flame the cat brings is a welcome breath, though it never takes away from the story.
I was so invested in the characters this go around, at one point I was so angry at one of the characters I had to simmer down and walk around the block after threatening to throw my Kindle in the trash and fly to the author’s house kick her in the shins. I couldn’t even make eye contact with my Kindle, I was so stirred up. That’s how well the author writes these characters to hit the reader right in the feels. You feel like you really know these characters. Luckily, I kept reading because this book is killer!! The ending is just wow!
Some of my favorite lines:
“Do not confuse my politeness for weakness.”
“I can’t keep my head above water if you keep pulling me under.”
“You treated Emily better – hell, you protected Emily better – and you don’t even like her!”
Brown packs a ton into this second of a trilogy, but the story never feels like too much to consume. It is the perfect thrill with just the right level of heat. It’s the best one yet!! Cannot wait to see what’s in store for Lucie and company in the third and final installment!
😘 Thank you for your awesome review, Jennifer! You made my day! I really appreciate you making time to read the advanced copy. You are wonderful!
