Goodreads Blurb: From New York to Ireland to Edinburgh to Siena to the Texas Hill Country to Napa Valley, a secret society, a witch, a demon, a psychic, a berserker, an ex-vampire, modern day knights, heroes, werewolves, elves and fae come together where emotions intersect. The story maps a trail from rages to hunts to epiphanies, but, in the end, proves that true love can find you in the strangest places, when you're least expecting it, even when you're far, far from home.
He was left behind when Elora Laiken made her choice. Now he’s had it with love, but a transplanted witch who happens to be the world’s best tracker hopes she can change his mind.
The Witch’s Dream begins with B Team on temporary assignment to Black Swan headquarters in Edinburgh where they are supposed to fill in for stretched-thin resources and assist with a werewolf issue. They’ve been given permission to stop in Ireland for a few days and celebrate a handfasting at the palace in Derry.
When they reach Edinburgh, the afterglow of an elftale wedding quickly turns all business. A missing person report turns into a demon abduction. A simple werewolf sanction becomes a diplomatic issue requiring the one thing Elora is no longer willing to give - finesse.
Erotic quotient: 18+ Some steamy scenes. No ménage. No BDSM
The Witch’s Dream took off right where My Familiar Stranger left off, perfectly, a 4.5 out of 5 rating rounded up to a solid 5. Packed full of paranormal fun, adventure, mystery, magic, excitement and romance that many fans of the genre will fully enjoy!
In this book there are various things going on so it’s difficult for me to discuss characters like I normally would for a review. What I can tell you is each and every event is suspenseful, exciting, touching (in some cases sensual) and definitely enjoyable to experience. I feel as if I got to enjoy various books/stories all-in-one fab read!
We meet many new characters. Litha and Song, and a handsome Fae prince (just to name a couple) and still get to see many of our favorites from the last book. Elora and Ram have continued on with their arrangement they left off with in the last book and we get to see before our very eyes others that fall very deeply into the fabulous trap that is love.
Even though this is the second book of The Order of the Black Swan series, it can be read as a stand-alone because of Victoria’s skillful writing. However, I DO NOT recommend doing so because then you will miss out on some great fun, enjoyable antics and some of the character growth that occurs from book 1 into book 2. I know I enjoyed experiencing it all :)
