Blood Winter is the latest and final (according to author's interview) book in the Horngate Witches series, centering on Max and her covenstead ,Horngate. The book takes place 4-5 weeks after Max survived a challenge against the Korvads in Chadaré, and arrives safely home to Horngate following the completion of Scooter's request. Things in Missoula are getting worst and worst with food shortage, and people scrounging for whatever they can find. With the Magic in the air already creating havoc, a preacher who says he's the right hand of god is stirring up trouble by creating a following to condemn all witches, demons, or just about anyone who isn't with him. What the Earth's Last stand cult doesn't know is that their leader is a witch himself, and he's targeting Horngate.
Max and the gang are all back, and like the first book everything takes place at Horngate/Missoula. No more leaving to another state or another dimension like the other books. Francis does an amazing job at creating another emotional-action packed novel that will have you flipping nonstop till the end. Max definitely has a lot on her mind this time around, still grieving over the deaths of ---, her relationship with Alexander, and the Earth's Last stand cult. The pacing of the book was on the dot as usual, there's never a dull moment in the book, and the author packs an emotional punch in every scene. While the majority of the book was well-done/written, there were two things that bothered me in this book; Max and Alexander's relationship and the story/plot. After the ending of Shadow City, I thought Max knew what she wanted, Alexander.
In Blood Winter, Max and Alexander are together but not really official.Read more ›
I continue to devour this series, my only disappointment being that there this was the last book in the series.The story is far from over IMHO and I won’t lie, I’m VERY upset that it’s over! In all seriousness, I think this may be the main reason I can’t give Blood Winter 5 stars – it’s not a satisfactory ending to a series, as much as I loved every minute of it.
In Blood Winter Max, Alexander, Kyle, Tory, and Carrie are preparing to go into town to see how the townsfolk have been dealing with the Change when disaster strikes. An unknown witch has gathered followers around him, making himself into the next Jesus – but his self-proclaimed work as “the right arm of God” is to wipe out the evil among them, namely Witches and those who consort with them. He brings his mission to Horngate’s doorstep – passing through their wards with four “witches” nailed up to burn. Of course Max and her crew resolve that something must be done about the unspeakable horrors he’s perpetrating against the helpless, but the more they work to defeat him the more powerful they realize he is and the more hopeless the situation seems. The Angel’s are still out and the Grimms (and Spike) take off, leaving the Coven ill equipped to fight without losing more of their family. Not to mention their still reeling from the loss of Niko. All the stress threatens to tear Max, Alexander, Tyler, Thor, Giselle, and the entire coven apart.
Like the rest of the series, Blood Winter was non-stop action, complete with painful descriptions of every horrible blow Max, Alexander and the rest of the crew took. For me, Blood Winter surpassed the others in the added element of mystery. Who was this preacher-dude and what hope did they have to defeat him?Read more ›
I enjoyed the idea of the mad preacher going in. The apocalyptic setting is an interesting backdrop and i was glad for the chance to view life at horngate. Especially for a group of warriors that need thousands of calories a day to function during a food shortage. Max continues to be a badass with style. But the angst between Max and Alexander has reached the point of contrived repetitiveness. Our view of horngate and its inhabitants turned out to be minimal. The action jumps from point to point with very little connection. I just wanted more from it.
Unfortunately the author revealed in an interview that this is the last of the Horngate books. Its hard to be specific without revealing to much, but it leaves a number of plot points dangling with little or no meaning. It seems as though some items or companions were introduced in previous books that were leading somewhere, and yet here they just petered out or disappeared into a giant crack in the universe. In fact, it seemed to me that the author originally had an overall plan for this universe and was building up to something big, but just fell short.
Perhaps she just became bored with it and decided to throw in the towel rather than keep plugging away at something she wasn't passionate about. Maybe the story ended up going in a different direction than she originally intended. Or maybe this was her intent all along and I simply misread what she was working on. Regardless I am left with a sense of lingering disappointment at this "climax" to what started out as such a promising series.
