This book was both intriguing and well written. It is very firmly a historical fiction book, which I did not realize when I started. But honestly, the book was so good!
The Once and Future Witches is an excellent book full of an amazing amount of character development and interest.
This was witches done right. This was demons done right. This was the whole package of evil goodness that I love and is my cup of tea.
I read this book in one day. I have no regrets because it was absolutely fan-freaking-tastic.
First off, I have heard nothing but good things about this book. And I was really excited to read it despite not loving The Beautiful Ones. I loved the writing in that book, and I felt that this book would give me everything I could want. Suffice to say, this book should be on everyone’s lists who likes scary stories, gothic horror, or just a good paranormal mystery.
