“There are rules that must be followed, Maggie.” “Even in witchcraft?” “Especially in witchcraft. What someone puts into the world comes back to them.” “You mean karma?” “Like karma, yes. But for a witch it comes back threefold. Never forget that.” “That doesn’t seem fair.” “Who said life was fair?” In the second installment of The Daughters of Dark Root series, Maggie Maddock and her sisters are back, training under their coven-leading mother Miss Sasha Shantay to take over as the new leaders of The Council. But life isn’t as smooth as Maggie had hoped it would be. Harvest Home’s taxes have come due, and her mother’s illness has returned, stronger than ever. Desperate, Maggie and Eve devise a scheme to make money through witchcraft. And that’s when things go terribly wrong. The Magick of Dark Root is a paranormal Fantasy with true-to-life characters who just happen to have magical abilities. However, this is not just a story of witches, it is a story about life, relationships, sacrifice, and the healing power of love and family.
Review by Stormi
You meet the sisters in Book 1- The Witches of Dark Root and here in Book 2 they are back. In book one you learn how they all ran away from their hometown and their destinys of being witches. But now they come home and begin a new life of witchcraft, love, and family. Once again I was not disappointed. I absolutely loved the first book and loved this one just as much. In this book you get to meet the girls a little more and you see a lot more magic being used, some good and some bad. This book made me laugh and cry. It made me happy and sad. It was all around a good book. I great little emotional roller coaster ride! This book just proved to me that April is a great author and I look forward to reading so much more from her.
