Gr 9 Up–Lou and Reid are still at it. Lou is a fierce and unapologetic witch. Reid, on the other hand, wants nothing to do with his powers. While both have some inner work to do, they start to wonder if they are truly meant to be together. Lou’s maman, Queen of the Witches, is still out to hunt her down and kill her. Only now she is out to kill more than Lou’s body. Ever since that fateful night that Reid saved Lou, Morgane is out to kill Lou’s spirit as well as her body. Mahurin’s complex sequel to Serpent & Dove takes the reader even further into the world of witches and chasseurs. Lou is a strong character who is not afraid to use her charms to get want she wants. Being a woman is hard in the 21st century, but in Lou’s world she not only finds her voice, but makes men take notice and change their views of women.
VERDICT With so many twists and turns, this book is a must for fans of the first.
