    Good morning all made it to Friday , illness hasn't beaten me down . Today we are going to review the brand new book by an author I adore . THE KING OF BONE AND ASH  by J.D Horn

                         BOOK BLURB 

From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of the Witching Savannah series comes the story of a young witch’s quest to uncover her family’s terrifying history...
Magic is seeping out of the world, leaving the witches who’ve relied on it for countless centuries increasingly hopeless. While some see an inevitable end of their era, others are courting madness—willing to sacrifice former allies, friends, and family to retain the power they covet. While the other witches watch their reality unravel, young Alice Marin is using magic’s waning days to delve into the mystery of numerous disappearances in the occult circles of New Orleans. Alice disappeared once, too—caged in an asylum by blood relatives. Recently freed, she fears her family may be more involved with the growing crisis than she ever dared imagine.
Yet the more she seeks the truth about her family’s troubled history, the more she realizes her already-fragile psyche may be at risk. Discovering the cause of the vanishings, though, could be the only way to escape her mother’s reach while determining the future of all witches.

                          MY REVIEW
      Welcome to New Orleans, the city steeped in voodoo and witchcraft . Where the Marin family is a magical family . Alice Marin is the youngest and has been locked away in an asylum . For years she is locked away in her own cage and when she is released she is out to find out what is going on with the magic that is leaking into the world . But as she tries to figure it out , she might be in over her head and finding out her family might be more responsible for the vanishing witches then first thought. As she dives deeper into the past , will she survive and will she fight for the future of all witches , not just her family . l
     This book is set in a town where anything can happen . The author paints such a beautiful gothic story . He takes us on such an adventure that had me reading well into the night . The characters are larger then life and very well written . The character of Alice is such a sweet loving character . You want to wrap her up and keep her safe but she is stronger then she realizes and is so smart . You will cheer for her and cry with her . There are so many strong characters and they are all so complex , you will love them and hate them at the same time . 
   This book is a steady read , there really isn't a lot of action at the beginning . We get a lot of the history and secrets there are so many secrets that are in this book and you won't put the book down until you figure out all the secrets that everyone is hiding . The author sets up the story and the history of the witches very well . He is very detailed in their stories and the way he writes will keep you enthralled .  I had a book hangover after I finished this book . I couldn't put it down until I finished .  So if you want a great story that is steeped in old ways and has lots of history of witches and the old ways . This is the new series for you . I can't wait for book two in the series to see where the author takes Alice . So check out the new series you won't be disappointed .
