To protect those she loves from herself, Jax will leave them all behind. She'll risk everything in a desperate search for answers.
Jax Pherson fled the darkest of covens and from her own father's evil. For a brief moment, her courage was rewarded. She found everything she'd ever wanted. A normal life. An amazing boyfriend. An envy-worthy best friend.
But her past put them all in danger, forcing a confrontation with the dark covens. In a life-and-death battle to save those she loved from the covens, Jax gained staggering power. Power so intense, so dangerous, she fears the darkness that now dwells inside her like a living thing.
If she can't control the power, she may yet become as evil as the witches she conquered.
With her friend Egan, Jax leaves all she's built and heads for the one place that might hold the answers she desperately needs to hold back the darkness-Salem, Massachusetts. Her research unearths a shocking discovery: the Bane, a secret group of witches dedicated to thwarting the covens.
Jax desperately needs their help in her fight against the covens, but finding the Bane is easier said than done and takes all her skills and courage. As Jax gets closer, her dark powers begin to rise and control her actions. If she succumbs to the darkness, Jax may have as much to fear from the Bane as the evil covens and the determined hunter on her trail.
This was just so awesome! After how much I enjoyed White Witch, I was really excited when this came up. And I just had to read it, it was just so good and entertaining, and the pages couldn't fly fast enough for me!
So the ending of White Witch was kinda pretty hard on Jax. But she has Egan, who is a really great friend, to go and try and find some way to keep herself from going bad. And then she finds the Bane, who might just be the answer.
But things are more complicated then that, and I loved the journey that these characters went on, to try and do the best for everyone, with all the twists and turns, and the people who really shouldn't be allowed to walk around free, like the people in the covens that she left.
I really enjoyed the mystery in this book, that Jax had to deal with, as well as the hunter, all just everything that she had to deal with in this book, they helped her grow stronger. And oh, that ending? Just makes me want the 3rd (and probable final) book, now!
So good, so well written, and I'm so lucky to have gotten this book to read!
