(Earth Witches #3)
ISBN-13: 978-0451238269 (320 Pages) Expected publication: July 2nd 2013 by Signet
Ex-soldier and Earth Witch Nyx Ianira is working as a PI in San Francisco when she sees the last thing she ever wanted to see: the Sisters of Justice—the mysterious Earth Witch police force. Three Sisters, a Triad, is usually a squad of executioners. This time, thought, the Sisters mission is to capture and escort an unwilling Nyx back to Twitch Crossing, Georgia. Nyx ran away from Twitch Crossing ten years ago to escape the stiff rules and duties of being a true Witch. She wanted a life of her own. Now she’s been dragged back to her swampy hometown because another life is in danger—her little sister is missing, and Nyx is the only one who can go to Duivel, Missouri and track her down. But the key to finding her may lie with the dark and tempting Etienne—a sinister criminal with a fearsome reputation, a ruthless attitude, and a total immunity to magic…
And book three continues my fan-Dom 🙂 again, we have the previous characters coming around but it’s main characters are new- well some of them. Wanna know what my favorite part of this one is? The fact that there’s romance, but it’s not the cute fairy tale ending nor is it the main plot of the book. I think I really liked this one. Plus, the farting dog is absolutely hilarious!! Seriously, read this one just for Hershel if not for any other reason.
This is Nix’s story. Her sister has gone missing in the barrows and she will find her, no matter what. I enjoy Nix. She was in the marines and did everything to avoid and get away from the witch and magic stuff, but is surprisingly thrown back into it because of her sister. This kid is the epitome of stubborn. Holy hell, she doesn’t know what the word safe means. She’s definitely bad ass. I want her to be my friend, just so I can see her try out her skills 🙂
The barrows makes me nervous, but with Etienne as her tour guide and protector, she seems just fine. There’s some serious power plays going on in this mystery. I am seriously still trying to figure out what the hell the earth mother is playing at. I’m also dying to know what the next story is going to be! The plot twists are a little whirl wind ride and you’ll be shocked with the “players” in the game! Or I was.
Etienne and nix are a very interesting couple. Lol. Their fights are awesome, both verbal and physical. There’s definitely more action, and lots of blowing things up. YAY for that! And though their romance isn’t your typical, “I love you let’s get married”, I like it because it’s honest and it works for them. I have a feeling soon everyone will be needed for something big to come. I’m definitely still a fan and I really can’t wait to see more!! 4.5 FIERY EXPLOSIVE PAWS!!
About Lee Roland
Lee Roland began her writing career in middle school when she wrote a short story for her brother. He turned the story in to his teacher as his own work. To his amazement and terror, the teacher was so impressed that she read it aloud to the class—and asked him to write another one.
Lee notes that, other than motherhood, she’s never had an exciting job. She might have dreamed of being a lawyer, nurse or police officer, but finding the right person to share her life with changed her plans. Her only credentials for writing are a terrific imagination, life experience and the love of words in a good story. She reads voraciously, but particularly loves Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance.
Lee lives in Florida and is a full-time writer. She is a member of RWA National and the Florida based First Coast Romance Writers.
Before being published, Lee won many RWA Chapter contests and garnered a Golden Heart nomination in 2008 with her post apocalyptic novel, LILITH’S CHILD.
Lee is the author of the Earth Witches series published by NAL, beginning with VIPER MOON in 2011.
