Poppy is discovering a purpose for her powers in Africa, but she is haunted by a vision of her own death. Taken in by a boy and his great-grandmother, a healer, they vow to keep her safe-even if that ultimately means holding her captive. But Poppy never stops longing for Leo and, when she feels his magic begin to spark, she will do anything to be reunited with him.
Desperate to regain Poppy’s trust and bring her home, Charlock embarks on a plan to reunite Leo with his mother. What Charlock doesn’t foresee are the string of consequences that she sets into motion that leave Ember all alone and prey to manipulation, the clan open to attack from other witches, Sorrel vulnerable to Raven’s ghost, Betony determined to protect her son from his father’s fate, and which leave both Leo and Poppy in terrible danger.

Thank you to Wunderkind P.R. For sending me a free copy of this book, in exchange of an honest review.
I rate this book a 3.75 out of 5 stars.
As this is the second book in a series I am going to keep my review minimal, as to not ruin it for those who haven’t read the first book.
In this book, I liked the characters just as much, I still found them flawed, and power hungry. I still loved them just as much. I felt the world building was better, the writing was better, and I feel like the story line improved. I am so glad I got to read these books, as I found them so enjoyable, and honestly perfect for the month of October, and getting me into the Halloween mood! But, you can read these any time of the year and enjoy them. I like the introduction of a few new characters, it added some freshness to the plot. Overall a great series.
