The Book of the Unwinding (Witches of New Orleans #2) Reviews
The Book of the Unwinding is the second book in the series that began with the King of Bones and Ashes. You really need to have read book 1 to enjoy this latest book. Like book 1, the second book in the Witches of New Orleans series has a jammed-packed cast of characters. If you are like me, you will appreciate the character list strategically placed at the beginning of the book.
While there a lot of characters, I found few to sympathize with. For the most part, this is a plotting, scheming group ...more

While I wasn’t the biggest fan of the first book I was certainly interested enough to want to continue. In places it was better than the first book, but in other places it certainly wasn’t and so I am left with the same rating.
There is so much potential here and it certainly isn’t the writing style by J.D. Horn that is the problem. The writing is dark and atmospheric. I think it captures well the feeli ...more
I love J.D. Horn!!!
I had been waiting for this book and was NOT disappointed. Once I started It was difficult for me to put the book down. The twists and turns just kept coming, some revealed only to show more twist beneath.
I knew this was going to be at least a trilogy and some you tend to expect the middle book to be more like a bridge. Usually one that tends to slow down the story that you have to get through so you can get to the end. I can honestly say that does not happen here. Hold on to ...more
I wasn't blown away by the first book in this series, but I was intrigued enough that I wanted to give this one a go. Alas, at 50% this one is just not holding my attention. I hate to be blunt, but watching paint dry might be more exciting. Even the fantastic setting of New Orleans couldn't save it. Oh well, you can't love them all...
I struggled some not having read the first book in the series as there are alot of characters definitely liked the dark mysterious portrayal of new orleans .Alice is stuck on the dreaming road while Daniel searches for her and Nathalie is concentrated on making her powers stronger.There was a lot of scheming happening and I didn't very feel relatable to the characters as they seem to want nothing more than the book of the unwinding Still a decent read with a dark bent and an intriguing view of n ...more

My review of the first book The King of Bones and Ashes.
Suffers from second book syndrome. It just doesn’t live up to the first but it’s not a bad read either. In fact, I’m certain I’ll still read book #3 when it comes out.
Four months after the events of book one, we’re given a view of how life has changed for our witches. Some for the better, others not so much and yet others still trying to find themselves ...more
I love this guy!
I've read every book I can find on Amazon by this author, I LOVE HIM! The
sing songy prose so smooth and laid back is captivating, never rushed or forced. I feel like I've been to new orleans or that island off the coast .I can't remember the terms from lit class anymore but I really wish I could so as to appropriately describe his works,,scary? Yes, and riveting,and enveloping, but it's the FEELING I get that keeps me looking for the next book.

King of Bones and Ashes was more interesting and driven than this next sequel.
The Book of the Unwinding picks up the after events of the killing of witches at the ball. Witches of New Orleans tries to find the way to end Celestin's dangerous plan to acquire magic and to kill all of them.
The plot was so dragging and uninteresting. The story was stretch and I can't find the climax in which I have waited and hoped for ...more
