In this first book of the Sister Witches Urban Fantasy series, Clementine Brodeur must unknot her dead mother’s tangled legacy before the clock runs out…
I’m Clementine, youngest of three sisters, and my magic is making me lose sleep.
I see memories the dead leave behind.
Which becomes painful when those memories belong to my mother.
Alderose, Beryl, and I need clues to find someone our mother protected. But viewing Mom’s memories–caught in story threads only I can see–will force me to experience the moment she was attacked by the Fae.
I know I can find my way through this.
However, my sisters don’t like my history of “leap now, look later” escapades.
They’ve had my back for over twenty years. Why wouldn’t they have it now?
The reality is we have forty-eight hours to find someone our talented mother could not.
If we don’t succeed, someone’s going to die.
And the story threads refuse to reveal if the one who will die is one of us.
Happy Wednesday, darlings! This week’s book review has a special bonus COVER REVEAL at the bottom for the next book in the Sister Witches series… but first let’s talk about book one!
By now it is well known that I am all about the romance. Reading, writing, whatevering. But one consistent exception for me is the world of Coralie Moss. Ms. Moss creates rich and enthralling worlds that suck you in with her exceptional and luscious detail.
Once Blessed, Thrice Cursed is an offshoot of the Calliope Jones series, however you can absolutely come into this without having read and not miss a beat. One thing that makes my heart go pitter patter is when beloved characters from one book make an appearance in another by chapter 2 in Once Blessed, Thrice Cursed, a familiar friend from the Calliope Jones series had arrived on the scene and I was ALL IN for it.
Throughout the book we get glimpses of and references to old friends from Calliope’s world, but they are woven in so well that you don’t feel as if you’re missing anything if you haven’t read the first series. Small breadcrumbs of their backstory in the older books are dropped, but the much feared info dump is successfully avoided.
Ms. Moss is a master of the red herring. Just as in the Calliope Jones series, there are characters that come along and ping my spidey senses, but the true threat is one I wasn’t fully expecting.
Where to find Once Blessed, Thrice Cursed
Now for the REALLY exciting part! Not only is Once Blessed, Thrice Cursed the first book in a brand new Coralie Moss series, but she has given me the epic privilege of allowing me to share the AMAZING cover of book two in the series, Demon Lines with you. This gem will be released next month so stay tuned for all my love to be poured out on another brilliant Coralie Moss piece.
