Savannah resident Mercy Taylor may now be in control of the South's most powerful family of witches, but she's struggling to master her newfound magic. Pregnant with her first child and still reeling from a heartbreaking betrayal, she just wants to be able to use her supernatural abilities without accidentally destroying dishes or blasting the doors off buildings. But when Mercy's long-presumed-dead mother suddenly returns, begging Mercy to keep her presence under wraps, the witch wonders how many secrets her family is hiding and who she can really trust. And when the danger around her intensifies to deadly levels, Mercy knows she must discover the truth behind her family's magic before it destroys her.… (mais)

2.5/5 stars. After learning so many secrets about herself in [b:The Line|6494966|The Line (The Line, #1)|Teri Hall|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1389506633s/6494966.jpg|6686411], Mercy thinks there's nothing left to know. She's determined to bring back Maisie and even more determined to protect her family and unborn child. And then... her mother arrives. The mother she thought was dead. And she learns something very surprising about her fiance, Peter.

This book wasn't as good as the first, imo. The relationship between the family remained strong, but the concentration on Peter was distracting to me because it seemed as if their relationship grew from Mercy's feeling of betrayal to this great love with no time for thought or healing.

I think the ending was supposed to be uplifting but I didn't see it. Not the way it happened.

I'll read a third book because I'm still very curious about the world building and because I'll always be hoping it returns to the wonderful feeling of the first book.

I think I loved this book as much as Witching Savannah #1. The plots moves quickly and doesn't want for twists and turns. I feel closer to the characters, and mostly thought I had a better idea of the good guys. There are a few wordy places, but not too many that it slows anything down. All in all, a great read. ( )

1.5 / 5

DNF at like 29% or something (which is the least amount read of anything I've ever DNF'd in my life, yikes)

This was not the sequel I was looking forward to.

I just can't, man. A character who was dead in the first book (and their death was kind of a Big Deal) is suddenly not dead?? And just so happens to introduce themselves right at the beginning?? Seriously?? Plus, Mercy seemed like a completely different character in this book. I mean, I like a character with a forgiving streak, but she forgave some very deep shit waaaay too easily. All the relationships just felt hollow and the plot felt contrived.

Ultimately though, the reason I couldn't stick it out any further (in the hope that it got better) is because I've got a huge pet peeve with reading from a pregnant character's POV. Like, it just really grosses me out and makes me uncomfortable, something about the 'magic of carrying a life and the love you already feel for this precious child' mentality is just squicky as hell.

Mercy is now the family’s Anchor and technically in charge of the magic of her family and one of the most powerful witches in the world. If the other Anchors would let her be. Hemmed in, limited, constantly spied on to say nothing of her struggle for control, Mercy isn’t finding power particularly easy to live with – especially since all that power cannot be used to find her lost sister

Her fragile world is further thrown into disarray with the return of her mother – who she thought dead in child birth. Her mother has an entirely different story not just of her death and her family but of the origins of magic herself. Mercy, who knows all too well that her family can and does lie to her, now has to try and find the truth between the competing sides and the reality of magic itself – knowing whichever side she chooses will mean losing family.

Throughout a lot of this book we’re left very much in doubt about who to trust, who to support and what the truth is.

A lot of books trey to create this – and usually fail pretty badly. Usually it’s very clear which person is actually the bad guy and while the protagonist may trust them, it’s usually while the reader yells “noooo what are you doing?!”

But both the first book and this book has done an excellent job of continuing that uncertainty and leaving us never sure which character can be trusted. Not because they’re all evil – but because they’re all very human and very flawed. They have their own foibles, they have their own weaknesses, they have their own problems, their own agendas their own values. From Oliver’s light, often self-centredness and casual manipulation to Iris and Ellen with their own tumultuous love lives all overshadowed by loyalty to the Line that permeates the families and makes them make rather extreme decisions if they begin to think the line is under threat.

And the Line itself adds a whole new level of complexity and uncertainty. We have the “official” version of what the line is – of the barrier that keeps the demons at bay that would enslave them all as they have in the past. But that is the official version, the Anchor’s version – a version that suits them well and empowers them. A version pushed by Ginny who we know was deceptive and dangerous and manipulative and certainly didn’t have Mercy’s best interests at heart. But there are rebel families – it seems rather unlikely that the rebel families aren’t fighting for the eager chance to be slaves – so an alternate narrative seems likely, especially since those Anchors love their secrecy.

This is even more complicated by the witches even acting in the best of faith simply not understanding the true nature of the line or the world they’re in – which, in turn, makes them potential antagonists towards Mercy.

Throw in the added difficulty of family connection, Mercy’s long lost mother and her mere existence pointing towards deception among those closest to her (and after those closest to her having already hurt her already) means we’re genuinely in a position of not knowing who to trust.

This makes the whole plot work – it makes Mercy’s conflicts work on top of not knowing what to tell Claire and Peter (while at the same time expanding the world building in a very new way with them) and be far more than Mercy just sitting around stewing and worrying.

I love stories about witches. There are no where enough good witch books out there though. This is one set of books that I've truely enjoyed. Set in Savannah, GA. The author does a fantastic job of incorporating Savannah as part of the story and I frigging love it.

(Case in point) Candler Tree-in the book it is full of spirits. I can so believe that.
Mercy is a strong character in this book and it moves a pace that kept me reading and wanting more the whole book. I'm not crazy about Peter as a love choice for her but some of the parts that came out in this book says that maybe he may change and not be such a whiney ass.

These books are pure fun. Light reading that takes you away. Just what I needed.
The characters in this book do become so real. In fact, My new kitten just got named after a character in this book.
Meet Jilo.

I recieved an ARC of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )
