Dark, captivating and atmospheric, The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson is perfect for historical and dark-fantasy lovers. With its handmaidens vibe, I quickly found myself transported to the town of Bethel and the forbidden Darkwood.
I began this series before my audio addiction began and thus have stayed with the written format. Storm Cursed is the eleventh book in the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs and she brings witches, zombies, vampires and more to our door.
It’s no secret, I’ve been craving all thing urban fantasy lately and decided to try Ghosts of Gotham by Craig Schaefer, narrated by Susannah Jones. Quests, secrets and witches await you in this addictive tale.
I was the mood for a creepy thriller and was drawn to the synopsis of The Craftsman by Sharon J. Bolton. Narrated by Nathalie Buscombe, Bolton offered a dark, gritty thriller with a serial killer who kidnaps and buries young children alive. A twisted thriller with spells and dark magic await you.
I was drawn to The Witch of Willow Hall by Hester Fox with its mention of Salem Witches and atmospheric tale. There are strange happens within Willow Hall and methinks magic is afoot.
Veiled Enchantments by Deborah Blake is the third novel in the urban fantasy series Veiled Magic. Character growth, a surprising twist and a mystery surrounding a haunting in Magnus’s Ulfhednar shapechangers community had me devouring this in a single lazy afternoon.
Murder’s a Witch by Danielle Garrett is the first book in the cozy paranormal mystery series Beechwood Harbor Magic Mysteries. I was in the mood for something witchy, and this looked fun. Narrated by Amanda Ronconi, Garrett delivered an interesting, fun and entertaining murder-mystery featuring a halfway house for displaced paranormals.
PRACTICAL MAGIC by Alice Hoffman originally released in 1995 and soon became a movie, which to this day I make a point of watching every fall. I read the book right before the movie released and over time my memories of the book and the movie blurred.
