Recommended for: Anyone with a hankering for a good, solid, soul-ripping witch-fight.
Read in January, 2009

It is refreshing to come across some delightfully disturbing magical characters one in awhile. These are not your Love-and-Light witches. (The clue's in the title, people.) These witches show the full potential of blind power, ambition and greed. It's thrilling and truly frightening in parts. Although I was disturbed at first by the Evil portrayal of witchcraft in this way -- I swiftly told myself to get over it and remember that I was reading fantasy-fiction and not a historical novel on pagan traditions. In this series the Horned God is indeed a demon, and even witches with good intentions kill kitties. There are a lot of characters to keep track of, but that's what makes it really exciting. The Deveraux/Cahors feud transcends time; therefore both time and characters overlap.
