Book Review: A Witch's Feast (The Memento Mori Witch Series Book 2) by C. N Crawford + The Witching Elm (The Memento Mori Witch Series Book 1)

I received a free review copy of A Witch's Feast from the authors. When I received A Witch's Feast I still hadn't read The Witching Elm and since that book sounded familiar (hehe familiar.... if you read the book you'll get it) I looked through my kindle and I already had it! I do not know where I got it from since it doesn't look like I bought it from Amazon I'm assuming I either got it from the author or won it in a giveaway.

Book Description:
Seventeen-year-old sorcerer Tobias Corvin tumbles through a blizzard and arrives—half frozen and half dead—in another world. Trapped in Boston, he tries to blend in at an old boarding school while secretly plotting to save his home. 

But if anything can distract him from his mission, it's the wild-haired and intriguing Fiona. She is determined to learn the truth about his dangerous magic. 

When a spectral army from Toby's world begins slaughtering Bostonians, he and Fiona must stop the carnage. They face unspeakable dangers unearthing the dark secrets of New England's past—a past that holds the key to saving both worlds from destruction.

My Opinion:
When I started reading The Witching Elm I wasn't so sure I would like it. First of all you get thrown right into the action from the very beginning. I love books full of action but I'm not used to reading books that start off like this I usually get to know the characters a little bit first, it confused me! I was thinking wait who are this people and what is going on, I don't even know if I like these characters! But I continued reading and I'm glad I did because after a few chapters I became a fan. I didn't like Fiona very much but Tobias is awesome! I love how Tobias world and our world were connected through Boston. I give this book 4 stars.

Book Description:

There are new rules governing the country--namely, no magic. But Fiona Forzese has never been good with rules... 

After a ghostly army terrorized Boston, the Ranulf family say they'll help Fiona and her classmates finish up junior year. They say their old Virginia plantation is a safe haven. All Fiona and her secret coven have to to do is show up to a few math and English classes. 

It should be a perfect solution. And it would be, if the Ranulfs weren't members of a witch-hunting cult. 

As Fiona digs deeper into the Ranulf's past, she learns a dark truth that shocks her to her core. But it isn't only the Ranulfs who are keeping secrets, and as the witch-hunting cult closes in, Fiona is forced to confront the demons of her own past.

My Opinion:
First I want to start with the cover, I'm guessing that must be Fiona.... I love it! I had many thoughts while reading this book like the author's must love history and finally Celia gets her own chapter (until chapter 49) and OMG Jack is still alive! I also had many question.... like what happened with Fiona's dad? And what is the price Tobias will have to pay for doing what he did to become more powerful? Some of my questions were answered and some were not so I will have to wait and hope I get more answers on the next book. 

As I got to know the characters more I began to love them all even Fiona, Celia and Munroe. I can't decide who I like better between Jack and Tobias though because they are pretty similar and are both in love with Fiona. I loved how the chapters switched between characters, I think that helped me get to know and love them all even more. I would have liked a chapter or two for Munroe though.

All I can say is wow this story is so exciting! If you're a fan of fantasy/paranormal and looking for a book full of magic and a little bit of mystery then I recommend A Witch's Feast... but first read The Witching Elm! I give this book 5 stars!
