The Darkest Magic by Morgan Rhodes (Spirit and Thieves book 2)
SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t read the first book in the series, A Book of Spirit and Thieves, Stop! I don’t want to ruin the story for you.
“In the second installment of New York Times bestselling author Morgan Rhodes's highly acclaimed Falling Kingdoms spin-off series, danger looms and the mystery deepens as two warring evils vie for possession of one elusive, powerful book.
Modern-day Toronto: Sisters Crystal and Becca Hatcher are reunited after reclaiming the Bronze Codex and narrowly escaping death. They have no one to trust but each other, and the only thing keeping them safe is the book that sent Becca's spirit to Ancient Mytica--the same book that their enemies would kill them for.
Ancient Mytica: Maddox grapples to keep his newly discovered powers under control, while the ruthless goddess Valoria hunts him down.
Modern-day Toronto: Farrell embraces his dark side as he unwittingly falls further under the spell of Markus, the mastermind leader of the nefarious Hawkspear Society, who will stop at nothing to find Crys and Becca--and the remarkable book in their possession.’ - taken from Goodreads.com
Why did I wait so long to read this book! Picking up immediately where the first book left off, the action starts up immediately. More back story about Ancient Mytica, the two goddesses, and the legendary Eva and the Kindred are revealed. Hopefully, this information will come in handy for Crystal Storm. Meanwhile in modern-day Toronto, secrets about the Hatcher family begin to come to light as well as information about Markus King.
What is so special about Becca Hatcher? What secrets does the Bronze Codex hold and why does Markus want it? Why is Valoria hunting down Maddox? Can he and Barnabas find a way to stop her?
Book three in the series will be published in 2017.
