Book Description

Sometimes you have to fight black magic with blacker magic. But in trying to save the people she loves, will Audrey fall into the dark abyss that claimed her father?

In Book II of the Audrey's Guide series, Audrey learns about her witchy roots and continues to fight her nemesis; this time she must dig deeper than ever, experimenting with dark magic to combat the insidious enchantment that's invaded her newfound community. She travels to the magical compound on the Mad River, the home her mother fled twenty years ago. Here Audrey meets her grandmother, the powerful matriarch of the Clan, and a host of colorful characters, some friends, some foes. When a sinister force begins to take over the magical community, Audrey must decide how far she's willing to go to protect the people she loves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the continuing story of Audrey! Great sequel. October 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Ahhh, I thought the cover of Audrey's Guide to Witchcraft was beautiful. I think I love this one even more ~ I love the color blue!

Once again, Jody has written a very enchanting story which follows Audrey as she learns about the witching world. And what better time to read about black magic and witchcraft then Halloween time? I love reading Audrey's stories this time of year, they just get me in the mood for spookiness.

This time Audrey, her sister Meg, and their cousin Sadie are whisked away to the Mad River compound to try to help their mom battle evil. More and more responsibility is put on Audrey, which she just loves by the way, as her powers become stronger and more consistent.

Poor Meg has a hard time fitting in, here in this world where she is not the 'popular' sister, where she is the odd one out. It was interesting seeing the role reversal between these two characters as they are either in, or out, of their comfort zone.

There was plenty of danger and excitement to keep me wanting to flip the pages, or in this particular case, swiping my Kindle screen. But along with the witchy things happening, there were enough personal things going on in the story to make the characters seem real to me.

And oooooo the Epilogue! What a way to end book #2! I know we are in for a treat in book #3. I can't wait!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sequel, and great on its own June 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Audrey may have recently learned she’s a witch, but she’s also a very serious, sensible, scientific student, with an annoying little sister, and a note-book where she records all the things she needs to know, like “Sadie’s Super Secret-Binding Spell,” and other magical things. Little sister Meg doesn’t even know her mom and Audrey are magical, since her sole concerns are boyfriends and her band. But she’s going to find out.

Audrey’s Guide to Black Magic may be second in a series, but it stands alone perfectly, and starts by leaping straight into the magic of its tale. With a convincing first-person teen voice, believable relationships, and magical descriptions, the author evokes a Land of “whimsical charm, a deep balance between human inventiveness and nature,” and terrifying danger. It’s a wonderful shelter where magical power is treated as a natural resource, carefully reserved. But it’s under threat from terrors most of the witches don’t even believe in.

Audrey’s been told she has great powers, but learning to use them is hard and she can’t help feeling she doesn’t belong. There are lines not to be crossed, rules to be followed, and prohibitions against black magic and blood. But where does family end and enemy begin? Which loyalties will prove stronger? And is fate trying to help or hinder her?

Darkly scary and gorgeously lyrical in turns, Audrey’s Guide is a fast fun tale filled with excitement, thought-provoking moments, mysterious threats and hopes. Romantic elements are perfectly tied to the tale, never intrusive, always important to the plot, and nicely muted, making this a great teen read. And list-making Audrey, with her note-book by her side, is a wonderful heroine for our times.

Disclosure: I was given a free pre-release ecopy and I offer my honest review

4.0 out of 5 stars Audrey's Guide to Black Magic October 14, 2013
By Angie
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed Audrey's Guide to Black Magic so much more than the first book! It took all of the good things and made them great! Audrey has come to terms with the fact that she and her mother are witches, but now it's time to come clean to her little sister. Meg, as a mundane, only gets to know this secret because their grandmother has invited them to "the Land" for Christmas break. She takes the news well, but it does put some strain on her relationship with Audrey. What's suppose to be a happy family reunion and holiday celebration takes a dark turn as evil infiltrates the compound and Audrey must once again step up and stop it.

I love love loved the Land! I had first pictured it as very green, speckled with flowers, and quaint cottages scattered about, but it is so much more than that! Yes, nature is the focal point, and there are cottages, but there's also huts, caves, and tree houses! It was very easy to picture and fun to read about. Audrey's Guide to Black Magic also really expands on magic, both light and dark. Just like the first book, there's spells and recipes included, along with Audrey's own random lists of things. I adore these extras. I was really interested in the black magic, even as Audrey was hesitant to try it, even for the greater good. There's some creepy stuff going on! In addition to the amazing location and the magic lessons, we also learn more Audrey's strange connection to Julian. I won't spoil it though!

As for the plot, it moves along quite fast, but never felt jumbled. We finally get to meet Audrey and Meg's mother in Audrey's Guide to Black Magic, since her group of warrior witches and sorcerers return to the compound for awhile. She also has a mission for Audrey: find Cormack's spy. I did figure out the traitor almost immediately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sequel! October 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I very much enjoyed Audrey's Guide to Magic. The author has written a great sequel that is just as outstanding as her first novel in this series. Expanding Audrey's world and powers, introducing the people of The Clan, and building on her family relationships made this a great read. One request, I hope Audrey goes back to cooking mundane food...I loved the recipes in the first book and witch spell supplies are hard to find!
