If Nick Parker is really his name! The last niggle I had, and compared to the others, this was quite minor, but it was the size of the books. I do think this one was greatly improved but while I was reading it I didn’t feel what the characters were feeling. I went to school in New York, and after school went back to New Orleans.
This is something I will not get over and will probably mention throughout the series. Barbara Hambly has been the biggest influence on how I describe magic.

All these interplots are confusing and it will be interesting to se I’m enjoying this series though it’s taking a long time to get to the point and there are tons of characters all involved in the main theme. There’s a lot of mystery, which is what keeps me reading. Yet circlle I got into it, t got really interesting and more clearer. I also just like reading about sex. I can only hope my judgement on Petra isn’t too dumbly founded and that she continues asues care for the twins and not be the one trying the murder them.

Fiery Clio is less than thrilled to have to share the spotlight, but the twins must learn to combine their powers in order to complete a rite that will transform their lives and the coven forever.
Thanks for telling us about the problem. I have several favorite writers.

I read the first one years back. But in this series she describes a religion related to Wicca, which just seems less believable. By the time we had two small children we knew we had to find someplace safer to live.

The truth I did feel anger at first and somehow it seduce me into the story to become part as the character. I didn’t enjoy going into the pasts of the members of the treize.
It just felt like a follow up from the first, and I was pretty disappointed in that.

Thais soon learns that she and the twin she never knew come from a family of witches, that she possesses astonishing powers, and that she, along with Clio, has a key role in Balefire, the coven she was born into.
However, I can really relate to Wicca, and I so appreciate its woman-centeredness and its essentially female identity.
During this time, she wrote several chapter books and middle-grade books under different names, and ghost-wrote for some popular series. Both of the twins; Clio and Thais eventually finds out that they are dating the same guy and thats pretty wierd.

I had never considered a 3 year cifcle gap to be a huge deal within the reading world, tienan with this series, I think it is. I have read a few with specific chapters for main characters within books, and I like the style, and the same goes for this book too.
