#BookReview The Book of the Unwinding by J.D. Horn @amazonpub

The Book of the Unwinding by J.D. Horn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The struggle for power continues in the sequel to The King of Bones and Ashes from Wall Street Journal bestselling author J.D. Horn.

With their magic diminishing, warring factions of New Orleans witches desperately search for the Book of the Unwinding—a legendary grimoire, hidden by spells, that holds the key to unimaginable powers. As a ruthless struggle erupts in a maelstrom of malevolent magic, psychic Nathalie Boudreau finds her destiny intertwined with that of an exiled witch.

Her name is Alice Marin, a vulnerable young woman trapped in a realm of illusion. Only Nathalie can free her, but first she must come to understand and master her own extraordinary abilities.

Now, in a world where betrayals have become the order of the day, it will fall to two women to restore rightful balance amid terrifying chaos.

**********

As much as I liked the first book, must I confess that the story in this book was even more captivating. If you have read the first book in the series, then you know about all that happened to Alice, Evangeline, Nathalie and the rest. If you are new, well, there is a nice character list before the story starts, and I advise to read it carefully to get the gist of where the characters are standing today. Actually, I found the list great too since I needed to refresh my memory.

I've just finished the book so I'm still in the world of witches in New Orleans, and wow I could stay there for a while. Anyhow, if you are looking for a non-YA book about witches, struggle for power and brutal death's then this series is for you. The search for the Book of the Unwinding goes on in this book, and a new foe shows up, or rather an old, new foe one could say. And, poor Alice is trapped in another realm, put there by her own father. And there she is slowly dying, as the realm and the creatures there draw on her powers. Back in New Orleans is faithful Daniel (who has looked after her since she was a child) searching for a way to save her. To bring her back, before it's too late...

There, I've given you all an appetizer! Now, go and find this book and book one, The King of Bones and Ashes, to read!

I want to thank 47North for providing me with a free copy through NetGalley for an honest review!
