I was kind of just going through the motions while reading this book. It didn’t grab me like other supernatural type books usually do. The main character is an soldier in the Confederate army, who has a twin brother. He’s in town for his brothers wedding. Weddings are not George’s thing, as he has different views on life in comparison to his twin brother. Everything changes, and he is forced to take a different life path when a woman becomes involved.
The story is following George and his realizations that there is more to life than what he originally thought. Unlike his brother who is caught up in marrying, and having children, something his absolutely not interested in. Everything changes when it appears he has fallen in love with a woman, under her influence of a spell, against his free will.
I enjoyed all the magic this book incorporated. It was mysterious, and not completely stereotypical of books in this genre. The book was set up for an eventual sequel it seems. I would be interested in finishing this series if Holmes writes book number two.
I also really enjoyed this book being set in Louisiana. The whole state has a mysterious setting to begin with, so this book couldn’t have been written in a better setting.
Since the book didn’t really grab me like I had hoped, and at times I found the plot to be a bit confusing. It was a little scattered, and could use a bit more organizing. It wasn’t bad enough to be disconcerting. I give this book a 3/5.
