This book was a lot of fun to read. The setting was perfect. The characters were well-developed and believable. And the story continued at a steady pace that kept me glued to the screen. I switched back and forth from reading to listening (via text-to-speech) because I didn’t want to put it down. – Up Til Dawn Book Blog
Black Mountain Magic – Kentucky Haints #1
Witches and Lycans and hillbillies, oh my!
Lorena Mills is a witch, but she’s not very good with potions and incantations. Working for a government agency that puts down dangerous uprisings of supernatural creatures, she does much more paperwork than spell casting. When her less-than-magical job lands her in the small Appalachian town of Blue Ditch, Kentucky, in the shadow of Black Mountain, her life starts to get a whole lot wilder.
In the forests surrounding the town, Wolvites—twisted, bestial creatures who hunt and kill humans—are posing a threat. When handsome, charming, and altogether reckless local Deacon Kelley insists on taking matters into his own hands, Lorena has more than monsters to worry about. He won’t stay out of her way, and he won’t take no for an answer.
Deacon is a Lycan–in modern terms, the non-shifting descendants of werewolves–and he and his family have protected Blue Ditch for generations. But now, something too sinister to be controlled by their efforts alone is stirring, and the Wolvites are far more vicious than they’ve ever been. Will Lorena be able to stop the threat and uncover the deadly secrets surrounding it before it’s too late?
To keep the town, and Deacon, safe, she’ll have to—and she’s really starting to like this town.
