Evil has awoken in Asheville, North Carolina, and Terra Rowan must prepare the Ladies of the Biltmore Society for battle. With her familiar, Pixel, a crooked leg fluffy orange cat, and her apprentice Abigail Oakhaven, a stubborn teenage girl with a bloodline dating back to the beginning of time, she begins their journey. The witch hunters have come to the Appalachian Mountains in search of the last witch of Salem. The magic of the mountains can no longer protect her and her coven. She must travel to the one place on earth that holds the secret to save mankind – Dark Corner.
Combining elements from different cultures, Appalachian folklore, Celtic legends, Native American mysticism, Dark Corner continues its new witch mythology while staying true to the realm of cozy mystery.
Terra Rowan is a witch trapped between worlds and lost in time.
Review: Although this is the second book in the series, it can easily be read as a stand-alone novel as I did. I seem to be on a roll recently reading about women who have been transformed into cats and can't break the spell, for whatever reason (see my reviews of the Caitlyn series if interested). This one, however, is a lot less gory and intense than the Caitlyn series, which is a welcome change right now.

All of the characters are well-written, and the story will keep you reading to find out what is going to happen next. My favorite character is Pixel, a fluffy orange cat who always has some of the cutest lines, and who befriends a butterfly.

Highly recommend this story for readers who enjoy cozies, history and/or fantasy. I am hoping to find time to work Book 1 into my schedule before the release of Book 3!

Rating: Four Stars
