This is the sequel to Once A Witch and will have spoilers for the first book. This is another book I read for the September is for Sequels challenge.
Tamsin will do anything to protect her family and friends. She gave up the Domani to protect her sister and even though her family did not tell her about her talent, she forgave them. Tamsin can stop other people's talents from working on her and she can absorb talents used on her three times. Tam hopes this ability will help her in her journey to the past. For her family to survive, Tam must stop Alastair and the Knight family from destroying the Domani. With Gabriel's help, Tam feels she can succeed, but her success may come at a high price. Just what is she willing to sacrifice for her family?
I enjoyed MacCullough's fast paced style and the humor in her stories even in dire circumstances. Tam is a strong heroine who knows the meaning of sacrifice and love and it was great to see her mature as the story progressed . I loved the time travel in this book too and it was nice to see how Tam dealt with the 1880's New York. I only wish the story was a little longer and I hated saying goodbye to the characters.
Favorite Character: Tam. No matter what life throws at her, she manages to deal with. She is a strong heroine, but knows when to allow others to help her.
Favorite Quote: "Only the very young seem to think that we can avoid death. We cannot. We can only perhaps choose how we meet it."
Nice twist on witches and their powers and a neat little time travel piece. I wish there were more books in the series! 4 cups of cocoa!
