As this is the second book in the These Witches Don’t Burn duology, this review may contain minor spoilers for the first book.
Proceed at your own risk!
Now entering her Senior year of high school, Hannah Walsh just wants to put the pieces of her life back together and forget about the tragedy that happened last year.
Her father is gone, her home destroyed, but she still has her Mom, best friend and girlfriend, Morgan, to count on.
While struggling with her grief, Hannah matured a lot. Sometimes it was hard to remember that she was still in high school.
I love that she remained connected to her ex-girlfriend, Veronica, and that we got to learn so much more about the infamous NYC Blood Witch incident. That’s what I had been hoping for all along.
As Hannah tries to recover however, the Witch Hunters are actually increasing their activities and apparently, they are now nationwide!
Armed with a biological serum that can strip Witches of their powers, the Hunters are determined to clear the world of Hannah and others like her.
There was quite a bit of action in this installment and moving from place-to-place. For me, it lost a little of its charm compared to the first book because of this.
Odd, I know, but one of the things I enjoyed so much about the first book was the examination of relationships and I didn’t feel that as much in this.
With this being said, I do think this was a lovely conclusion and I definitely plan to pick up the prequel novella, This Spell Can’t Last.
I also will pick up anything else this author chooses to write!
