Generally quite good but not what I thought it would be I thought it would be a Stein summation all the other books tied up with us one I guess I'm still waiting for the final which should be better than all the rest

I chose this reading because I thought it was one of the weaker stories I'm all his witches books vampires included excuse me the others were much stronger I'm looking forward to reading his final one that will be out in late August. I have been looking forward to reading the book of

Enjoyable

Another good book from Mr. Horn. It seems to move slow and quick at the same time. I liked this, but still not as much as the Savannah witches series. Some how it seems a bit lacking in some way. Despite skill that the characters are well written even if the storyline feels rushed.

The Book of the Unwinding is the second book in the series that began with the King of Bones and Ashes. You really need to have read book 1 to enjoy this latest book. Like book 1, the second book in the Witches of New Orleans series has a jammed-packed cast of characters. If you are like me, you will appreciate the character list strategically placed at the beginning of the book.

While there a lot of characters, I found few to sympathize with. For the most part, this is a plotting, scheming group

Really enjoyed this book. This one suffered the same fault as the first, bad guy explains too much. I enjoy the characters, although in this one some of my favorites became a little muddy and altered from the first book. Like the first, Horn sets a good scene. My favorite bit about the series is the mythology and the setting that he creates. Looking forward to the third book.

This was a dark, intriguing, and mysterious tale. I found myself really enjoying reading about Alice in the Dreaming Road and Nathalie with her intimidating new powers. I also enjoyed the integrating of Louisiana history too, such as Hurricane Katrina and Marie Laveau. Plus you get to unravel more of the mystery behind Astrid and Daniel.

Some of the other parts and point of views were a bit drawn out for me and some facts were repeated quite a bit so I had to stop myself from trying to rush thro

ARC/Paranormal: I had to read the first book of the New Orleans before I read this one. Good thing I did because there are sooooo many characters.

In the first book, which has no relation to the witches or Savannah because there's no ley lines, is about a group of New Orleans witches that are losing their powers over some time now. I don't want to but can't help but compare this series to J.D. Horn's Savannah series, which is written in first person. This series is a third person narrative in th
