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 help 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: Some steamy scenes. No menage. No BDSM.
This book picks up where My Familiar Stranger left off. Some of this story takes place in Ireland and Edinburgh.
Deliverance is an incubus demon. He is on a mission of revenge. Sir Chaos Caelian, Kay to his co-workers, is a knight of the Black Swan. His fiancée’s name is Katrina. This is a great way to interconnect the characters in this tale.
Litha Brandywine also works with the Black Swan. She is a young woman that speaks her mind and isn’t afraid to be who she is. She also learns something about herself that she never knew. There is one knight that really sets her on fire and she isn’t afraid to go after what she wants. This is something that is great about Victoria’s series; the women appear to be strong in more ways than one.
Victoria also continues the story of Ram and Elora. Ram’s sister, Aelsong, also joins the team. You have to give an author a lot of credit when they can create a world that doesn’t exist plus a lot of characters that also exist in this world. And on top of that another dimension is added into the mix – it takes a lot of creativity.
Victoria also does a great job of building the anticipation of who will the next romantic pair will be. And on top of that includes an interesting twist. The reader also gets some background into one of the knights, Storm. It was a great read for book two and I can’t wait to see what Victoria has in store for her readers in book three. It’s a book that I didn’t want to put down until I was finished. (Reviewed by Lynn from Romance Reader Enthusiast)
