Weird Girls, Book 7
Synopsis: Taran Wird holds the unique ability to conjure fire and lightening. She is mated to Gemini, Second in Command to the Squaw Valley Pack of the Lake Tahoe Region, and the sole werewolf to possess the ability to split into two wolves. And although they are mates, Taran’s insecurities have driven them apart.
Devastated by an injury that left her with a zombie-like limb, Taran struggles to regain command over her magic. But when her arm and her power turn against her, lashing out on those she most loves, she knows she can no longer carry this burden alone. Not that she likes the alternative.
The only way to regain control of her magic is to align and learn from the local coven of witches―the very ones who sought to banish her when she and her three unique sisters first moved to the mystical region. But although Taran is trying, the teachings don’t come easy, and the tasks leave her weak and emotionally shattered.
Yet Taran must learn and learn fast. Time is running out. The fire she once mastered so easily has become her greatest adversary and is now slowly burning her alive . . .
Review: I was surprised with the previous volume when I realized that we were returning back in time. It’s always a bit tricky because it’s a complicated to put and understand exactly where we are in the history of the characters. But with this novel, the flashbacks are over and we can find more adventures of our heroines while following Taran.
This is not necessarily easy for the woman since she lost her arm, but when this loss coincides with the departure of Gemini, it only gets more complicated. Indeed, she can not act as if everything was normal as her arm seems to take life once in a while and uses the magic of the young woman while wounding people around her. No, Taran can no longer ignore this problem and the only alternative, which doesn’t enchant her, remains to ally with the witches to try to dominate her power with them and to learn how to control herself. Unfortunately, her patience will be put to test when she understands that Gemini works with them and it seems that he has a relationship with Vieve, the person in charge of the place. Yet despite all the good will of the world and her desire to succeed to avoid unpleasant situations in which she finds herself, magic seems much more complicated to manage than she thought. But when in addition, a witch is on the run and trying to create zombies to take power, all our heroes will try to join forces to face this new threat. It is in this context that Taran will meet Alice, a zombie who will become her familiar and follows therefore her home. I admit that I had a soft spot for this character who is innocent and touching in her own way. Well she loses some members from time to time around the house but how not to love her? You’ll have to discover her! But our heroine will have to manage a large number of problems here (poor girl) and it’s true that I was curious to see how everything was going to work out when we see all the problems.
It was a very good volume again and I was delighted to find all the characters I’ve come to appreciate. It’s nice to finally see Celia and Aric have their relationship even if ultimately they still have a few concerns. It was a delight to follow Taran and I admit that I am curious to find out what will happen to all the other characters! Yes it was a very good novel again and I am eager to find out more!
