Jill writes: Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the library…
Lucie’s life is indeed complicated. It’s complicated by the interplay of a series of men whose main goals in life seem to be to foul up her plans for a simple life studying magic, strengthening her witchline and reading tarot. But a simple life is not in the cards (teehee) for Lucie – and this second-in-series makes that abundantly clear.
With the latest installment in her Bellerose Witchline series, Brown has amped up everything this time around – the emotions, the stakes, the world-building, and the twists are all on over-drive. There are demons and portals in places they shouldn’t be. There are romantic and political intrigues lying around like potholes, and poor Lucie keeps stumbling into them. Injuries, old friends, illnesses, secrets, and plots are all thick on the ground, and navigating them requires everything Lucie has – and then some.
Once again, Brown has done a magnificent job crafting a world that is just this side of our own, full of darkness and spice, action and adventure – all of which are designed to reel the reader in and then leave them hooked. I’m continually impressed with the author’s ability to devise new ways to drive her characters into corners that should leave them broken and lost, yet to somehow also give them just enough of a glimmer of hope and possibility to allow them to find their way back into the light – if they choose. It’s a tough dance, but it is once again managed with sharp pacing, crisp writing, a healthy smattering of snark, and more than a dash of romance to light the way…
