The Book of the Unwinding (Witches of New Orleans #2) Reviews
I wasn't blown away by the first book in this series, but I was intrigued enough that I wanted to give this one a go. Alas, at 50% this one is just not holding my attention. I hate to be blunt, but watching paint dry might be more exciting. Even the fantastic setting of New Orleans couldn't save it. Oh well, you can't love them all...
I love this guy!
I've read every book I can find on Amazon by this author, I LOVE HIM! The
sing songy prose so smooth and laid back is captivating, never rushed or forced. I feel like I've been to new orleans or that island off the coast .I can't remember the terms from lit class anymore but I really wish I could so as to appropriately describe his works,,scary? Yes, and riveting,and enveloping, but it's the FEELING I get that keeps me looking for the next book.
J.D. continues the Witches of New Orleans with tantalizing twists of his characters and plot. With a mix of complex characters and beautiful descriptions of New Orleans the story moves along fairly quickly. I'm anxiously awaiting the "final" installment.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
The Book of the Unwinding is the second installment in the Witches of New Orleans series which can be described as a dark supernatural fantasy series that includes elements of witchcraft and voodoo. It takes place not long after the events that occurred at the end of the first book, so it's recommended that readers pick up the first one before delving into this one. The characters are rebuilding their lives and trying to deal wi ...more
I love J.D. Horn!!!
I had been waiting for this book and was NOT disappointed. Once I started It was difficult for me to put the book down. The twists and turns just kept coming, some revealed only to show more twist beneath.
I knew this was going to be at least a trilogy and some you tend to expect the middle book to be more like a bridge. Usually one that tends to slow down the story that you have to get through so you can get to the end. I can honestly say that does not happen here. Hold on to ...more
The Book of the Unwinding is the second book in the series that began with the King of Bones and Ashes. You really need to have read book 1 to enjoy this latest book. Like book 1, the second book in the Witches of New Orleans series has a jammed-packed cast of characters. If you are like me, you will appreciate the character list strategically placed at the beginning of the book.
While there a lot of characters, I found few to sympathize with. For the most part, this is a plotting, scheming group ...more
Another good book from Mr. Horn. It seems to move slow and quick at the same time. I liked this, but still not as much as the Savannah witches series. Some how it seems a bit lacking in some way. Despite skill that the characters are well written even if the storyline feels rushed.
Not as complex as the first. Characters are not as likable or believable. Too much about their love lives and not enough about the basic story.
