I read. I listen. I watch. I write.
The Gleaning- Heidi R. Kling
(Spellspinner’s 1) left us with a steamy and heart-wrenching cliffhanger. Well, The Gleaning
picks up right where we left off. And thank goodness for that because things are getting SERIOUSLY questionable in Melas County. On the eve of the gleaning, Logan and Lily struggle to not only trust each other but to figure out their parts in the world around them and this fated prophesy. Kling does a great job of endearing Logan and Lily to the reader and frankly her breathtaking romance scenes can’t be beat. This book is full of treachery and betrayals, which balances the romantic passion perfectly. There is something magic about their story, and not in a witchy way. I find myself bespelled with a compulsion here to read: to find out what happens to them, to see them safe and together, to see witches and warlocks brought back together. With more twists and turns than Witch’s Brew
, The Gleaning
had me on the edge of my seat to find out what would happen next. I still totally love the reader choice options that is the foundation of a Coliloquy
title. The book is perfectly timed for Halloween too since we could all use some sexy magic as the witching hour approaches. The Gleaning
has finally arrived and just like last time, we are left with a cliffhanger ending. I don’t know what will happen to Lily and Logan, but I know one thing for sure, I’m going to keep reading.
Witch’s Brew- Heidi R Kling
SEXY MAGIC BOOK. That’s what Twitter has been calling Witch’s Brew for months now, and its an apt name. Witchy girls, warlock boys, a feud, mystery, drama, and an intense romance: this book has it all. I love Logan and Lily. Love love love love love. Witch’s Brew has so many brilliant moments- of vulnerability, passion, anger, fragility. I will warn you though, be prepared for a heart-stopping, cliff-hanging ending that will leave you screaming. No really there was actual shrieking involved. Kling has some magic of her own I think; all of her books take me on an emotional rollercoaster with characters of true depth. I can’t wait for Spellspinners 2, so here’s hoping Heidi is hard at work!
Adding to my excitement is the fact that Witch’s Brew is one of the first Coliloquy published books. Coliloquy takes the “choose your own adventure” premise of books we read as kids and brings it into the digital age. Specifically made for Kindle, we make choices while reading which in turn go back to the author to incorporate into the series and help them determine where to take the characters next. SO COOL!
