Daughter of Lies and Ruin (The Witches of Blackbone Book 2) Kindle Edition
'If they didn't want to get turned into beasts and used to fuel a ritual, they shouldn't have attacked a witch. That's all there is to it.'
There's something strange brewing in this tinder-dry forest -- a girl with a sword and a secret, a troupe of vicious bandits vanished without a trace, beasts that don't belong and a witch with a macabre plan.
Elodie hasn't been learning witchcraft for long, but she knows enough to be worried, and the fact that her mentor Aleida wants to pack up and leave in short order isn't helping to settle her nerves.
Elodie just hopes to get everyone out of this mess unharmed, but it's looking more unlikely with every passing hour. And when the strange witch's ire falls on her, Aleida's wrath sparks a fire that threatens to scorch the earth itself ...

Aleida is the current Blackbone witch of the series and Elodie, or Dee, is her apprentice witch. They meet in the first book but in 'Daughter of Lies and Ruin' they are on a journey. Aleida is all about not drawing attention to themselves to keep themselves safe but Dee is soft-hearted and wants to help anyone in trouble that they meet and they meet a lot of people in trouble. Helping people does not help them keep a low profile and on their journey they confront many dangers and bandits and beasts from another realm that have been magicked into their world. When they discover that someone is trying to work powerful magic to bring a hell beast into their world - a being that will wreak incredible damage and which may ultimately destroy their world - they have to get involved and help stop it if they can. But are their magic skills strong enough to stop it and will they survive their attempts or is the hell beast too much for them?
The writing in this book is exquisite, the story is compelling, and the characters come alive at Ms Spurrier's deft hand. The book combines mythological elements with a powerful and moving storyline that kept me guessing until the last word. This is one of those books that I wish I'd read before Christmas so I could give it out as a Christmas present but there is always next Christmas. You know what you're getting in your stockings peeps!
