Sometimes witches hunt their own…
Someone knows my secret and they’re wielding it as the weapon of my execution. I stand accused of poisoning my Gravebriar coven mate. To my fatal regret, I can’t prove my innocence without revealing the truth I’ve long kept hidden: while every other Gravebriar witch are green witches and healers, my magic lies in poisons.
There is one witch who believes me – the same boy who was sent to kill me with instructions to pluck the briars that sprouted from my grave – the only cure for a Gravebriar witch. Forge Silverthorn will be my undoing… or my salvation.
He claims there is a malicious plot vining through the witch town of Cauldron that threatens to tighten around my throat in a deadly noose. Promising I can escape by seeking the help of a banished witch who hides our kind in plain sight, he leads me to a dark circus full of witches.
The ringmaster will only help us if we agree to join his circus of uncanny tricks and diabolical feats for two nights only, using our magic to thrill his patrons. In exchange for our participation under the big top, he’ll divulge the information I need to save my coven mate and clear my name.
But when dark secrets emerge from the shadows of this promised sanctuary, I’m forced to decide if I can truly trust anyone, especially Forge… my would-be executioner, my coven’s sworn enemy, and my could-be love.
This is reminiscent of When Wishes Bleed in the sense of different in sense of the way the witches interact with each other but they are completing independent of each other.
The world building is incredible like all Casey books are. The world in which Castor lives and interacts with is amazing and I can imagine myself being their with her.
I love Castor and Forge and the relationship they build together. Castor is such an interesting character not just because of her powers. You create a connection with her immediately due what she is experiencing. Forge is such a great partner to Castor and loved how you never knew what was going through his mind at times.
Overall I loved Gravebriar and I will definitely be reading it again!
