Book eight in Stanhope’s Elemental Witch Trials series continues Rose’s story with some powerful and compelling developments.
This instalment explores the balance of power and strength not just between key characters, but also within some of them more personally and individually. It also pays deeper attention to issues of heredity and consequence at a deeper level than previous books in the series. Some episodes of this novel are confronting, while others are devastating for the characters and the reader alike.
As with every other part of this excellent series thus far, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
