There's a turning point in every war, but I didn't expect this one to be in my front yard. Allies of the Fae king have moved against the military stationed in Saint Charles. Our unsteady alliances are threatening to fracture, providing the water witches and vampires an opportunity to strike. With losses on both sides, things are far more dire than we realized, and the retu ...more

It starts mid war, I guess… the water witches are coming for Nixie and her lover, Vesik.
Again?
It’s all getting a bit same same - I reckon the series could have wound up a few books ago. *checks notes - now there are 14 books in the series.*
There are zero surprises and the big climax (view spoiler)
In an attempt to check in with all the characters s

The Vesik series is an Urban Fantasy series following Damian Vesik. Damian is a smart ass Necromancer with a vampire for a sister, fairies who live in his shop. Add in a whole bunch of other fantastical creatures and some magic (obviously) and that's the world Damian lives in. Witch Queen's War is book 7 in the series. While it's not required that you read all of the books in the series I would highly recommend at least reading some of them before jumping in. Personally, I have read Books 1-3 an ...more

Witch Queen's War is the seventh book in the Vesik series. This can be read as a standalone, but I highly suggest you read the books in order so you understand the entire background story since it starts where the previous book ends. While it does not end in a traditional cliffhanger, it is clear the story doesn't end here. There is a lot of violence and gore so 18+.

The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that all of that info here. This story continues what

"Witch Queen's War" (Vesik: The Series, Book 7) Made Me Want To Read The Entire Series

Having previously read Eric. R. Asher's "Days Gone Bad" (Vesik: The Series, Book 1) and "Whispers of War"(A Vesik Anthology) previously, I was already somewhat familiar with Damian Vesik and his friends and when I got a chance to review an advance copy of "Witch Queen's War" (Vesik: The Series, Book 7), I jumped at it. Given that Vesik, plus his friends and allies are engaged in a battle against the Witch Queen

Author Eric Asher is bloody brilliant! The complexity of the Vesik series is no small feat. The series just keeps getting better. Asher's storyboard must be the size of a wall to keep all the players and storylines straight but he weaves the tale majestically. The military style battles in this installment left me breathless like I was standing next to Vesik myself. There is never a dull moment. I LOVE the MC, Damien Vesik. Vesik is

The Witch Queen's War is the seventh book in the Vesik series. Everything about these stories is epic as Vesik's friends, allies, enemies and problems transcend time, space, humanity and even life and death. He can barely put out one fire when another pops up. As the death toll rises, even his home and his city are under attack. It seems like the necromancer just can't catch a break. Good thing he has a couple of cu siths to help straighten things out! Good read.

In the most recent release, I put off reading for just a bit. I didn't want to read it only as it would mean needing to wait longer before the next one. As always, once I did delve into the book, it was read in a single sitting, not wanting to leave the world - once I was immersed in the world of Vesik and family, I didn't want to be brought out until I had read the last page. And I wasn't disappointed except for when this chapter in the tale was done, and I am relegated to once again reading or ...more

This Vesik "Witch Queen's War" is fantastic!!

Wow! Eric Asher has outdone himself with this installment in the Vesik series!
Stunning visuals and history abound! The battles are as well written as some of Robert Jordan's! Don't think for a minute I missed the similarity of the beards either.
The battle "humor" is epic as well! Nothing like a little ribald fun to help you face potential death..
Buy the book. Read it. Leave a review.. I highly recommend it!!

What a fantastic writing style by Mr Asher! I love the Vesek series. Very detailed and great development within the storyline, the characters are amazing and it makes me smile with his dry comments and humour just fantastic to read never gets boring I was clued to the book!
Can't wait for the next one!
Thanks for a gripping storyline with lot's of surprises to make the book even more exciting!

Eric r Asher is a genius!! Book 7 in this series cement relationships, it brings about new players. But our good Friend of Death's Door just can't catch a break!

This fast paced never a dull moment irony filled book will carry you into the world Eric created. one of my favorite series and a wonderful author, as I have read his other series.

If you like UF as a genre then Vesik is a MUST!!!!

Unbelievable! What did I just read?!? This is a great series to begin with, but this installment was outstanding. The sheer scope of this story was insane. With so many moving parts, I wouldn't be surprised if the author's notes were almost as long as the book. To call this entertaining would be a great disservice. I look forward to this saga continuing.

Awesome book! Damian and Nixie are fighting the battles of their lives. Yes, you have mystery, lots of action, surprises and story twists. Park, Casper and more play a part and the two dogs, lol, are excellent. Read and enjoy this book but be prepared to be left hanging a bit because it is not over.

Lots of action

As with the six previous books the suspense and action did not let up. Damien is pulled in many directions trying to help his love, his town, and his friends so he is going from one dangerous situation after another and manages to get out alive. Can't wait for book 8.

This is an enjoyable series and this book is no exception. Even though the war Is serious there was enough comic dialogue to tone it down."I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book that I received from the publisher."

It just gets better and better. Thanks Eric for sharing your world and imagination with us.

BTW, I've never posted a review before. And may never again. What is up with a minimum word count to post a review?

Another great book

I enjoy this series more with each book. I love the relationship between the characters. They are truly family, and the list of people they care about and protect keep growing. I look forward to book 8!

OMG!

This book kept me on the edge of my seat from page one to the very end! I am quite impressed with the way the author weaves in crucial information and foreshadowing while keeping the action brisk.

Almost too much action. The usual cast of characters is present, along with some new human soldiers.This book builds on previous books and would be confusing if you had not read them.The entire series is entertaining and filled with action.

Eric has managed to continue to keep the excitement and the novelty going even after 7 books. He's a true talent in the field.

Full of the action, danger, and friendships that I've come to expect from this series. Very visual and imaginative. The narrator does a fantastic job bringing the story and characters to life.
