The Witch's Dream

The Order of the Black Swan #2

The story itself begins fast and never once slows down. The characters from the first book are back and smarter and sassier than ever. There is plenty of blazing hot romance, as well as plenty of adventure and dimension jumping. For fans of the series, this novel certainly will not disappoint. I must admit, there were several surprises and unexpected turns in the novel, but they only serve to make the book that much better. This novel will draw a reader in and transport them along with the members of Bad Company all around the world, and perhaps even to other worlds. It is a grand adventure, and I can hardly wait for the next book in the series.

For readers of the Order of the Black Swan series, this novel is a very welcome addition to the progression. This novel brings back all of the delightful characters from the first book, My Familiar Stranger, and tells the story of Engel Storm and Litha Brandywine. Engel is a knight of the Black Swan, known to be stoic and brave and never questioning himself once a decision is made. Litha is a half demon witch, beautiful and opinionated, and determined to make Storm hers. What follows is a thoroughly enchanting tale of two very headstrong individuals learning to listen to their hearts. There is also the added bonus of the story of Kay and Katrina, another adorable couple who have been together for decades. The adventure and love to be found in this novel will enthrall readers everywhere as much as it did me.

Book Blurb for The Witch's Dream

He was left behind when Elora Laiken made her choice. Now he’s had it with love, but a transplanted witch who happens to be the world’s best tracker hopes she can change his mind.

The Witch’s Dream begins with B Team on loan for temporary assignment to Black Swan headquarters in Edinburgh where they are supposed to fill in for stretched-thin resources and assist with a werewolf issue. They’ve been given permission to stop in Ireland for a few days and help Ram and Elora celebrate their handfasting at the palace in Derry.

When they reach Edinburgh, the afterglow of an elftale wedding quickly turns all business. A simple werewolf sanction becomes a diplomatic issue requiring the one thing Elora doesn’t have – finesse. A missing person report turns into a demon abduction. From New York to Ireland to Edinburgh to Siena to the Texas Hill Country to Napa Valley. From promises to rages to hunts to epiphanies.

This is a story that proves that love can find you when you’re least expecting it – even when you’re far, far from home.
