Artist Tate Eresby has accepted the unusual sights and sounds of Golgotham, New York's paranormal underworld. But her relationship with witch-lord Hexe, the current heir to the Kymeran throne, is full of tension. Hexe's Uncle Esau is an anti-human activist who believes Tate is a human enemy of his race.

But Tate's time in Golgotham has left her more than human...

I absolutely love the world that Nancy has created. Golgotham is a place where New York's Paranormal folks live and the detail and creativity written between the pages of this series never stop amazing me. LEFT HAND MAGIC is the second book in the series and I would 100% recommend you read book one before jumping into it. There are things in book 1 that you will not want to go without knowing.

After a big incident at the The Two-Headed Calf Golgotham is not a friendly place for humans and that includes Tate. LEFT HAND MAGIC is filled with danger, action, suspense and drama. At every turn Tate seems to be pulled into a situation that puts her in danger. Tate and Hexe are comfortable with each other and their relationship. They have just about everyone in their lives trying to break them up but they only hold onto their relationship tighter. I really want them to get married and have babies (ok I know that is jumping the timeline but I'm very interested in knowing how the child will turn out with some of the new details we learn about Hexe's family lines and how his family members get to be heir to the Kymeran throne) read the book you will want them to have babies too. Scratch continues to be fabulous. He is the perfect little side kick familiar and he cracks me up at every turn. No matter how much he tries to hide it and how much crap he gives her you can tell that Tate is growing on him. We get a few visits from Tate's parents and wow her mother is a piece of work. Just when I think she is done being a witch we find out a shocking detail that links her to Hexe's mom. I cant wait to see how this little slice of information comes out in the future. As the description of the book states, Tate's time in Golgotham has left her less human then she was coming in. I wont tell you what that means but Im excited what will happen next for her now that we know a little bit of what she can do. I know teasers teasers. Go grab yourself book 1 RIGHT HAND MAGIC if you have not started this series.

I gave it 4/5 stars
