Publisher's Summary

Billy Blade is a hardworking, hard living, razor sharp musical force. Mysterious behind his dark shades, the rough around the edges Texan mesmerizes with his haunting harmonica and tantalizes with his dangerous looks and smooth country charm. His latest album is topping the charts. He's the newly crowned King of the Bacchus Krewe. He's definitely living the rock star dream.
Exotic Creole beauty Thyme Bellerose couldn't be more content. She has it all. An adoring grandmother. A handsome Tulane medical student beau. A satisfying job in the heart of New Orleans' French Quarter. Her life is as rich as the ice cream she creates. She's got everything under control.
But control is an illusion. Dreams can turn into nightmares. And now during Mardi Gras, otherworldly powers stand ready to shape their destinies in ways they could never imagine.
Shadow and light. Magic and mystery. Reality and myth. All come together in a place where rules bend and lines blur. Even those between life and death.

Spell-binding listen... I need more

If you could sum up Strange Magic - Part Two in three words, what would they be?

Intense.... Spell-binding... Revealing...


Who was your favorite character and why?

Why do I have to chose just 1??
Billy Blade, this man awakens with this listen, he's life is dark until he meets Thyme...
Thyme Bellerose, it was devastating to listen to what happened to her in book 1, so when she becomes more than what she ever was in this book & all because of the love she shares with Billy...
Morpheous, this man (what else can I call him??) is steadfast in his dedication in keeping Thyme safe in the Underworld, his love & loyalty for her is half of what helps her on this journey.


Which character – as performed by Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross – was your favorite?

I loved so many of the characters, each were performed beautifully by both Wen & Kai, how can I choose just 1??


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I started this audio book this morning & although I had to take a break a few times throughout the day, I had my headphones back on & finished it... within the day.


Any additional comments?

I will add that I was so enthralled in this book & didn't want it to be finished already, I'm hoping that there is a book 3 in the near future. Please let there be a book 3... I need to know what happens next. All the descriptions within the story, then Kai & Wen's magic added on top, made this so much more.

Love Love Love this series!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Strange Magic - Part Two to be better than the print version?

Most definitely!! Listening to the book brings it more to life much more than I could ever imagine reading the book on my own.


What other book might you compare Strange Magic - Part Two to and why?

The Tempest series also written by Michelle Mankin.


What about Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross ’s performance did you like?

I have listened to many books narrated by Kai and Wen. Every book they read gets better and better. In fact, I found many new authors because of them. I have purchased book is solely on just wanting to listen to them. They read with emotion and passuon. And every character has their own voice. They are true storytellers. And listening to Wen's smokin' hot voice is just an added bonus.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were many. Too many to count. This book if filled with sad and happy moments alike.


Any additional comments?

After listening to the first book I immediately purchased this one. I couldn't imagine this book being much better than first, but it was. It was filled with love, sadness, hot sex, and lots of action, and beautiful poetry. Michelle Mankin is one of my favorite writers and I will read any book she releases. Her lyrical writing is nothing more than beautiful and she sprinkles magic over each page she writes.

The same goes for the narrators Kai Kennicot and Wen Ross. They bring such passion into every book they read. I will never get tired of listening to them.
