Publisher's Summary

A spellbinding novel of bloodlines, self-discovery, and redemption by the author of the Washington Post bestseller The Vine Witch.

Abandoned as a child in turn-of-the-century Paris, Yvette Lenoir has longed to uncover the secrets of her magical heritage and tap her suppressed powers. But what brave and resourceful Yvette has done to survive the streets has made her a fugitive. With a price on her head, she clings to a memento from her past - what she believes to be a grimoire inherited from the mother she never knew. To unlock the secrets of her past, Yvette trusts in one woman to help solve the arcane riddles among its charmed pages.

Elena Boureanu is the vine witch of Château Renard, noted for its renowned wines. Even as she struggles with her own bloodline - and its poisonous threat to her future - Elena can't ignore a friend on the run. Joined by a cunning thief, the proprietor of an enchanted-curio shop, and a bewitching black cat, Elena and Yvette are determined to decode Yvette's mysterious keepsake. But what restless magic will be unleashed? And what are Yvette and Elena willing to risk to become the witches they were destined to be?

Unexpected. Uplifting. Unique.

I finished this sequel from Smith in one sitting! Sussanah Jones has the perfect voice and sophistication to enchant us and wrap us in the French accents and magic of this tale. ⚖️ Plot: As I listened, I was seamlessly transported into the complexities of mythical beings living amongst humans, and how far our prejudices and lack of knowledge about each other dims the vivacity with which we could live together. 🗺 World: I didn’t see as much of the gorgeous countryside and vineyards I was used to. But then again, the story didn’t revolve there. It was absolutely more of a character story here and it did invest me more in their lives and backstories. 💑 Characters: As the plot progressed I found that this was not so much the tale of our protagonist Elena as it was of the secondary character, Yvette. But as it revolved around my very favorite Fae, I had no complaints. This is indeed a great way to add to to the series, but I wanted to see our beloved JP coming into his own. I’m hoping that’s coming up in book 3 and can’t wait for more!

Can’t wait for the next book

This good captured my attention from the first and the ending was certain but unexpected at the same time. The author has a good imagination and adds the little details that matter. The narrator is fun and easy to listen to as usual. More, more, .....

An amazing sequel to The Vine Witch

An amazing sequel to The Vine Witch, yet it does stand on its own two feet. This is a wild ride through the under side of Paris from the catacombs to the secret underground spirit world. What a fun and edge of your seat story. Author Luanne G. Smith definitely entertains with this novel of the dark arts. A must read for wine , witch and wonder lovers.

Super narration of an enchanting tale

This second book lives up to all the promise of the first as the story of Yvette unfolds. Add in Susannah Jones' wonderful narration, her ability to capture the essence of the characters and accent, and you have a book that is a joy to both listen to and read. Really looking forward to the next chapter in this tale.
