Everyone, welcome to Wright’s Holler. It’s freaking magical! Okay, okay. It’s no Hogwarts, but I loved the magical elements in the holler, and the author described it so vividly, you felt like you were in another magical realm. This story had me sucked in from the very beginning. The imagery is so vivid. I felt like I was right there with the characters. Annie Wright is the witch of the holler, creating medicines for the sick and forecasting the seasons for the people of McAllen to prepare.
But this time, there is no way to prepare for what is coming. And then she meets Wes. Their magic calls to each other in a powerful current that you can feel with the turn of the pages. I was enthralled with this book, and I honestly didn’t think I would be. But I was sucked into the plot line. The fight of Annie for her town and Wes for his tribe, the desire for each other, and battle to somehow win both.
Shep, Annie’s lifelong friend, doesn’t approve of Wes. He stands firm in God, carrying the Bible with him always, and no Native American god will cause his faith to falter. He is skeptical to let such a man near Annie, let alone be okay with the bargain made, but his townspeople need safety. And when all hell breaks loose,Shepherd Ansley is the one you want by your side.
You will not be disappointed, although you might want to kick/punch/shake the author, but isn’t that the point of a good book? To get you so lost in the story that you need more – you need answers? Right then and there? Yeah. She definitely had me worked up with the way she left things.
I’m giving this wonderful story (and the first of a series) a 5 out of 5 stars! I would have knocked it down to a full four due to the writing style. It is different, with longer sentences that what is typical. Run-on? Maybe… However, with the time and place of this magical tale, it worked for me, but I know it will likely bother some readers. HOWEVER, this book had me welling up with tears on three occasions. They didn’t spill over, but if a book gets me all bleary-eyed, it usually gets a 5. So, FIVE STARS it is! Way to go Harper on your debut novel!
I love the world of witches and Tribal Gods that Harper L. Jameson has created. Annie is the heroine of the story and Wright's Holler's local witch. She endeared herself to my heart as I continued to read the story of her and her Holler. The story to me was already refreshing with Annie....adding Wes, the Tribal God, kicked it up another notch. The two of them together turned the story of legends into a new romance. I found it interesting how the author took two completely different worlds (one from the past and one from the current day in the book) to create amazing interactions. There is a little bit of everything in the story between the two worlds...ranging from the smallest of laughter, the greatest love, and the depths of rage.
The ancient language at times was hard to follow, although there is a glossary of terms at the beginning of the book. However, it did give the read an authentic feel with the ancient terms. I think without the ancient terms it wouldn't have had the same intricate feeling of the interactions of the two worlds. Thank you, Harper L. Jameson, for the refreshing paranormal/fantasy read. I can't wait for more.
