Publisher's Summary

From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of the Witching Savannah series comes the story of a young witch's quest to uncover her family's terrifying history...
Magic is seeping out of the world, leaving the witches who've relied on it for countless centuries increasingly hopeless. While some see an inevitable end of their era, others are courting madness - willing to sacrifice former allies, friends, and family to retain the power they covet. While the other witches watch their reality unravel, young Alice Marin is using magic's waning days to delve into the mystery of numerous disappearances in the occult circles of New Orleans. Alice disappeared once, too - caged in an asylum by blood relatives. Recently freed, she fears her family may be more involved with the growing crisis than she ever dared imagine.
Yet the more she seeks the truth about her family's troubled history, the more she realizes her already-fragile psyche may be at risk. Discovering the cause of the vanishings, though, could be the only way to escape her mother's reach while determining the future of all witches.

Big Disappointment- Too meandering and not enough focus

I didn’t realize when I bought this book that it was the first in a trilogy and not a stand alone story. My last listen was a bust so I was really hoping for strong story that would hold my interest. This wasn’t it.

Although the premise for the story is nice, there are too many different points of view and wandering back and forth between characters for my taste. Also, the plot was way too slow to hold my interest in the “can’t put it down” way that I was hoping for. This was slow as molasses and because the point of view kept changing it made the pace even slower and harder to follow. A few times I slipped back in the narrative because I thought I had missed something, but it was just another change of pov which made the story seem choppy and disjointed.

I really didn’t want to start another trilogy where the rest of the series isn’t even written yet because I hate to be left hanging for how ever many years it takes the author to finish. But I would have been ok with that if the book itself made me want to continue with the rest of the story. This was too slow to make me
consider another book by this author - thanks Audible for your return policy! Hoping my next listen is a winner.

Loved this book!

I really enjoyed this book and the narration was spot on, well written, a little confusing in parts but that’s just a good excuse to listen again. I can’t wait for the next one
