As the last of the Incenaga Witches, Emmeline has been tortured and forced to use her power to kill. But unlike the Incenagas before her, she has survived. With her freedom restored, she should feel safe, invincible even. After all, she has the protection of Prince Erick’s army and a power strong enough to obliterate any enemy. Yet Emmeline lives in fear for the next person who will try to control her, and no one can seem to find the tyrant threatening to claim her.
Until it’s too late.
With everything on the line, and the enemy at her throat, will Emmeline be able to use her power like never before? Even if it kills her?
In The Underground Witch, the second novel of the Incenaga Trilogy, Debbie Dee delivers enough adventure, heartbreak, and suspense to captivate readers at every turn.
Debbie Dee recently moved to southern Idaho with her husband and three children where she is learning how to be a country girl in her favorite pair of blue heels. She adores fairy tales and happy endings, but secretly crushes on the bad guy now and then.
As a dedicated musician who practices way too much, she never expected writing would sweep her off her feet until she jotted down a scene from a daydream, which turned into two scenes, which turned into a messy house and her first novel. Since then she hasn’t been able to let a day go by without writing.
In addition to writing, she plays the piano, harp, violin, and gets in frequent fights with her cello. She loves to read and play board games - when she is winning.
Some clouds were too different to blend in with the rest. And if another little cloud came too near, the big cloud engulfed it in itself until the little one no longer existed.
Emmeline and Erick are deeply in love and preparing to marry. But with Emmeline being the last Incenaga there is always the threat that someone will come and rip her away from her home and try to own her. Without going too deeply into things because it will definitely spoil it for you, I will say that Emmaline and Erick's love will be put to the test and Emmeline will be pushed to the brink and will need to draw on everything that she has to try to come out the other side as unscathed as possible.
I really loved book one in this series but Debbie Dee has taken it to a whole new level with The Underground Witch. The action and adventure was beyond awesome. The romance was beautiful, the twists and turns were aplenty and the level of evil was staggering. This book was absolutely epic on all levels!!!
When I reviewed book one in this series, The Last Witch, I said that Emmeline was full of strength and determination. And she was. But that was nothing compared to the strength and determination that she showed in book two. The things that she endured throughout this book broke my heart and at the same time made me so angry!!! And yet she took everything dished out to her with such dignity and selflessness, always putting everyone else's needs before her own.
But a part of him hoped she would remain difficult so he would get his chance to beat her. It would feel so good to wipe the smirk off her face.
As well as our favourite characters from book one we are introduced to a whole new cast of characters in this book, some you will love and some you will loathe with a passion and intensity. O'fin and Burungi were the too that I really loved. Both of them came into Emmeline's life when she needed them. At one stage Emmeline says O'fin is a strong boy with an even stronger heart, and she couldn't be more spot on. And then you flip the coin to the other side and you have evil beyond all evil. Tiergan was horrid. I despised him with everything that I had. I'm pretty sure that I plotted ways for him to meet his demise in my head.
"Emmeline, I don't care what you are. I love you and I will do whatever it takes to protect you"
Erick once again captured my heart. He is all things good. He shows that a man can be leader without being cruel or brutal or unkind and still gain the utmost respect from those that he leads. And he loves with his whole heart. But that heart experiences hurt in this book and he has to find the strength to go on and fight for what he wants.
There is so much going on in this book that there were times when I just couldn't put it down. I was desperate to find out what was going to happen and how things were going to turn out. Debbie Dee's writing is superb, her characters are fantastic and her ability to tell a story is breathtaking. If you haven't started reading this series yet then you are definitely missing out.
A Definite 5/5 Stars!!
And I just want to mention my absolute surprise when I finished reading The Underground Witch and was reading through the acknowledgements and there was my name. I was completely blown away!!! Thank you so much Debbie Dee!! You made my day!!!
