This is the second book in the series of three. Book one is Dark Witch . The first book is a little better than the second but I cant wait for the third to come out, it is entitled Blood Magick. These books are not as scary as they sound, Nora Roberts has a way of weaving a story to give it just the right amount of drama without to much violence. Two thumbs up to Nora! I really like the way these books are bound with deckle edge paper. It gives the books a special look. They are also bigger than a regular paperback book, easy and enjoyable to read and when you open the book it does not do damage to the spine of the book.
