Ross deVries and his friends have met a lot of otherworldly characters in their lifetimes but this time around, they may have found their match.
Their story begins happily…with the birth of Cassie Mallory and Quinn Maycott’s daughter, May, a blonde bundle who immediately captures everyone’s heart and fosters protectiveness in all of them.
Verena Oakemont was a witch living in Raine’s Landing before the original Salem witches make it their haven. Executed by a zealot witch hunter called Thaddeus Firman, Verena got her revenge by dragging Thaddeus to Hell with her, and now…
…while Ross and the others are sharing the happiness of little May’s birth, Verena choses that moment to return. Centuries in Hell have taught her a thing or two, and now she’s back and adjusting well to the passage of Time. The lake where she was drowned is now the property of the Greenwood Sanitarium housing deranged sorceress Millicent Tollburn as a patient. Rising from her watery grave and possessing Millicent’s body, Verena goes on a magical rampage. Not hindered by Regan’s Curse, she includes Boston in the devastation, vanquished again by the only two inhabitants also able to leave Raine’s Landing, Lauren Brennan and Lehman Willets.
Verena may have been stopped, but something more has risen from the lake…Thaddeus Firman has also returned. Now a follower of the one entity those in Raine’s Landing never truly overcame, he’s out to kill any using magic for good purposes…and his main target is the most powerful and innocent of them all, the Landing’s newest citizen and undoubtedly most formidable adept…little May Mallory.
What follows is more devastation, destruction, and loss of life than previously experienced by the townspeople…no one dares use magic to defend themselves since under Thaddeus’ control, it turns against them. Only the few unmagical inhabitants, such as Ross and Cassie can fight and they’re virtually helpless.
There’s one thing than can often conquer any obstacles, however, as Ross discovers as he finds himself the solitary horror-struck witness to the strength and selflessness of maternal love…
After a long run of a series, it’s generally expected some entries will be better than others. So far, Richards’ Raine’s Landing is putting the lie to that belief. Witch Hunter is as powerful, frightening, and full of hope as all the other novels. After this particular story, however, as Cassie says in the last chapter, “Things are bound to be different.” You’re going to have to work hard to top this novel, Tony, but I’m certain you can do it. All I can say is, “Vive la difference!” Looking forward to it.
