Good morning everyone. Welcome to Thursday. The day before the day before the weekend. It is also mother's day weekend and more important it is my birthday this weekend. So it will be party time for this girl. lol
I will probably be reading all weekend . So here I am to talk about a great new series that I have found and absolutely love . THE LINE by J.D Horn
Move over, Sookie Stackhouse—the witches of Savannah are the new talk of the South. Bold, flirty, and with a touch of darkness, debut author J.D. Horn spins a mesmerizing tale of a family of witches . . . and the problem that can arise from being so powerful. As Charlaine Harris’ series winds down—and as Deborah Harkness’ series heats up—Witching Savannah is new contemporary fantasy that will be sure to enchant new readers.
Mercy Taylor, the youngest member of Savannah’s preeminent witching family, was born without the gift of magic. She is accustomed to coming in a distant second to the minutes older, exquisite and gifted twin she adores. Hopelessly in love with her sister’s boyfriend, she goes to a Hoodoo root doctor for a love spell. A spell that will turn her heart to another man, the best friend who has loved her since childhood.
Aunt Ginny, the family’s matriarch, would not approve. But Mercy has more to worry about than a love triangle when Aunt Ginny is brutally murdered. Ginny was the Taylor family’s high commander in the defense of the bewitched line that separates humankind from the demons who once ruled our realm.
A demon invasion looms now that the line is compromised. Worse yet, some within the witching world stand to gain from a demon takeover. Mercy, entangled in the dark magic of her love spell, fighting for her sister’s trust, and hopelessly without magic, must tap the strength born from being an outcast to protect the line she doesn’t feel a part of...
In this riveting contemporary fantasy, Horn delivers the full betrayal, blood, and familial discord of the best of Southern gothic.
Move over Sookie there is a new girl in tow. Let me introduce you to Mercy Taylor , part of the Taylor witches of Savannah. She is the normal girl in the family a set of fraternal twins . She has now powers what so ever. So she thinks. Mercy is torn between two men, the man she has grown up with and her sister's boyfriend. So off to see Jilo, the local hoodoo priestess . For a love spell to make her feeling for Peter stronger , and get rid of the feelings for Jackson . She suddenly she finds out her grandmother, Ginny is dead. Someone murdered her. As her life is turned upside down . She is entangled in a dark spell and the fighting the growing distrust in her sister. As things heat up she is in danger from all sides and needs to keep everything straight and survive the aftermath.
I adored this book. I was page turning well into the night. J.D was weaved a magical story of family and magic. The closeness of the witches and what they will go through to keep them together. Mercy is a heroine that you just feel for. She has had it hard her entire life . Things have been taken from her and kept from her. When she finds out the truth, she is literally blown away. The way it is written you have fun trying to figure out what is going on and who do you believe. Trust me I really wanted to strangle Maisie about half way through the book. She just is evil in my opinion. You would have to draw your own conclusion on that. You actually start to like the old hoodoo priestess Jilo. She seems like the only one that Mercy can trust. She tells like it like it is .
J.D can deliver a great story of gothic proportions , betrayal , black magic, blood and family disfunction in the only the way the South can do it. So if you like Charlaine Harris and the Sookie Series, Check out Mercy and the witches of Savannah. This will be a great summer read for anyone who loves witches. So make it you beach read this summer
