Magic Rising (#4 Stella Mayweather Paranormal Series)

4.6 out of 5 stars on Amazon
For Stella, the Witches’ Council Summit is supposed to be a chance to learn more about her fellow witches but instead of networking, she finds herself on trial for murder. The accusations may be evidence of a sinister plot at work or they may be a ruse to draw attention away from the mounting tensions as the witches vie for supremacy. Reaching out to her boyfriend Evan for help would be reassuring… if he wasn’t oddly unreachable.
As the ominous reasons behind the trial come to light, an assassin unleashes a terrifying campaign against the Council candidates. With tensions running high and accusations flying faster than a backfiring spell, the witches are forced to gather together for safety, but that might just lead to an implosion as the culprit is sought.
Plus there’s the small matter of an ancient talisman the werewolves are desperate to find, a talisman that they say is stolen, but the more Stella investigates, the more it appears that it isn’t the simple artefact they claim it to be.
With Evan still missing and her world more complicated than ever, the choices Stella must make might confirm her place as a formidable witch in her new world or leave her excommunicated… forever.
Quotes from reviews:
I like that the story line has real feelings, that good, bad and confused emotions are displayed and you can identify with Stella on her journey. Very recommend as a good, entrancing read.
I love the development of the characters that we have come to know and love, the inside look at the Witches Council and the various mysteries that are pretty much unsolvable. The ending will both break your heart, band make you proud of the independent woman Stella has become. Of course, it also made me wish book 5 was about to be released because the suspense is killing me!
This another great installment to a truly magical series!
Have been waiting for book four and devoured it in a few hours, I'm anxious to see what's in store next!! Hope it's not a long wait for book 5!!!
