Tabitha Shay/Witch’s Heart/Eternal Press/ebook 303 pages
This is the second book in Shay’s great epic of witches and wakens, humans, and the struggle between good and evil.
Sage awakes to blue skies and an alien world. How did he get here and what has been going on? The opening paragraphs in this continuation of a huge involved story are beautifully written and immediately grab the reader’s attention. Bitten by a snake, he is burning up when Hannah Miller looks down at him and he realises he is in the land of human kind – witch kind’s worst enemies. Now he begins to remember why he is here.
His mind goes back to the night he was sent to kill Hannah and her friend Kirrah, who has only just begun to understand that she is a witch. Because the wakens (male witches) feared a friendship between a human and a witch, Sage was sent to kill them both. However, instead of killing her he saved her from a fall. Hannah was immediately attracted to him, but then as she sensed something in him she became scared – who was he and why had he come?
Sage had wanted Hannah so badly that he couldn’t kill her. Instead he banished her to the land of the humans. Now, after a war with the evil Melora Haven, a power-hungry witch, he was in Hannah’s world. This time he is without magic and at Hannah’s mercy. Back in Sanctuary the battle for the kingdom goes on.
Will Hannah and Sage find true love – and can they return to Sanctuary to help save their world? To discover what this is all about you must read this book and the first in the series, because this is a whole new world. All the mysteries are never going to be solved sometime soon!
This is a powerful story on its own, but it is only a tiny part of the epic unfolding in this brilliant series. I recommend that you read this book only if you want to be hooked on something that is likely to become a craving. If you read one you will be gasping for the next. This author deserves a bouquet of red roses for the sheer scale and brilliance of something like this! Linda
Witch's Brew will reveiwed at a later date.
