The Return of the Witch by Paula Brackston
Published by Corsair
1st December 2016
In a breathless journey that takes them through history, witch pursues warlock. Three people steeped in magic weave a new story, but not all will survive until the end.
This is the sequel to The Witch's Daughter and is not a disappointment. At the end of the first book, Gideon managed to escape from the clutches of the witches' spell and now Elizabeth knows that he will one day return to take Tegan for his own. Since that day five years earlier, Tegan has journeyed around the globe seeking out the best mystics, shaman and witches she can find in order to become that best in her craft, but will that actually be enough to protect her from Gideon when the time comes?
Elizabeth travels back in time to the days of the Civil War and Paula Brackston's ability to conjure up the past has lost none of its charm in this her most recent book. Her characters, as always, are so full of life and her settings ring true. The suspense and tension of Gideon's plans for both Tegan and Elizabeth hold firm throughout the book and of course, there has to be a dramatic climax at the end of the book, but I can't possibly reveal whether Gideon gets him comeuppance or whether it is the end of the road for Tegan and Elizabeth. If you are a fan of magic and witchcraft then I do urge you to read the Shadow Chronicles novels.
