His Father's Blood -David W. Thompson

In this book, we continue the legend of the Dyer family a couple of generations later in a Grandson of Moll Dyer, the legendary witch.  In this sequel, an entirely new character, new story, yet it still stems from the family legend. This book can be read without first reading it's predecessor, Sister Witch.

Now that that little tidbit is out of the way... I read this book with the full expectation and knowledge that a sequel rarely ever surpasses, let alone lives up to, the first book. 

I was wrong.

In Sister Witch, we encountered a slow, steady pace with an ever-building evil that leads us to an epic end. This time around, the pace is face, break-neck in fact, and the depth of the characters left me Googling for more information (since I live in Texas and had no previous knowledge of Moll or the accusations against her.) As I read this book, carefully woven, laced with a dark intrigue that keeps you turning the page again and again. In the end, I was left gasping and eager for the next book.  I highly recommend this one, you won't be disappointed if you are any sort of fan of the paranormal or the dark vein of fantasy with a historical twist.  Check it our here on Amazon, free on Kindle Unlimited. 

Sister Witch: The life of Moll Dyer By David Thompson

I like book reviews. I read book reviews, so after a bit of a break, I'm back posting my thoughts on all the things I'm reading.

To accounce my return to this world, I'm here to talk about an Urban Paranormal Fantasy. This book is the story of a woman, a legend in the North East, Moll Dyer. It's said that her spirit haunts the area talked about in this book. Now, being from Texas, I've never heard of her. However-after reading this book you can be sure that I did some Googling! 

As I read this book, I enjoyed the authors attention to detail and was reminded of my childhood. Why? Because as a kid and growing up, my favorite books were the Laura Ingalls Wilder books. I read them all, every single one, some more than once. I loved the old timey way of life, it fascinated me. I found a touch of that here, being that Moll lived at the end of the 1600's.   I realize that some might find these details mundane, even slow or boring-but I loved them.  Really took me back to all those books I loved as a kid. And you can be sure, books create memories-and I really enjoyed the fact that this read took me back to them.

I liked the story as well, and I could connect with Moll. Thompson created a real character here, a woman that is like so many living today. Screwed over by events she had no control over, starting over, pulling herself up by her bootstraps and doing what she had to in order to get by.  Loved the character, the book, the memories.  Looking forward to seeing what this new author comes out with next.
