His magic is gone. Can he find it in the darkest corners of the witch world...or in her arms?

Who knew being a witch could be so...boring? Ava Castillo dutifully got her college degree, but now what? She itches to get out of Santa Fe and find adventure like her big brother, Tony. Find some use for her magical talent. Find love.

Who knew she'd find excitement standing right on her own doorstep?

Gabriel Escobar stood up to his evil older brother to help Tony and Cassandra Castillo, and paid a heavy price. Stripped of his magic and banished from his clan, there's only one place he can think of to go — to the Castillo clan, in the hope that they can help him regain his powers.

Who knew he'd find magic standing right on the other side of Tony's door?

Together, Ava and Gabriel embark on a quest to find the spell that will restore his magical gifts. A journey that takes them from the streets of Santa Fe to the darkest corners of old New Orleans to a hidden village in El Salvador, where the answers they desperately need wait for them...along with a threat that could strip them of everything...

...including their lives.

Note: Higher Ground is a standalone novel, but it may enrich your enjoyment to read the previous books in the Witches of Canyon Road series.

Christine Pope’s “Higher Ground”, The Witches of Canyon Road Book 7” just blew my mind. Just when you think this phenomenal series couldn’t get more thrilling, Christine slams you with yet another amazing sequence. We find Ava Castillo bored and wishing she had some excitement in her young life; when a knock on her door brings Gabriel Escobar the warlock who had previously helped Ava’s brother Tony and Cassandra Castillo. When Gabriel stood up to his evil older brother to help Tony and Cassandra, that action brought about a terrible punishment on Gabriel which was why he was seeking help from the Castillo Clan. Ava joins Gabriel on a quest to seek a way to reverse the punishment bestowed on him by his brother and his malicious Clan Elders. The adventure and outcome are both exciting to say the least. It was also very moving when Ava and Gabriel find love that neither one ever expected. I highly recommend this book along with the entire Witches of Canyon Road series.

Another fantastic book by Christine Pope, Higher Ground picks up a few months after An Ill Wind. The story deals with Ava, Tony’s sister, as she helps Gabriel Escobar regain his powers stolen from him. It’s a good story with action and romance. Together they leave Santa Fe, Arizona, to go after the head of his family’s clan who is set to go after Ava’s family clan. Specifically, Miranda her cousin-in-law, whose family has a dark past the Escobar clan. Ava and Gabriel along with a few other Escobar family members work together to think of a plan to take out the head of the clan who is mad for revenge and power. As they travel through Central America, Ava and Gabriel develop a friendship that turns to romance the more time they spend together. The story is really good. While it's not my favorite book in the series, it's still a good read. I can’t wait for the next book.

Although Ava Costello considers her life boring and has somewhat low self-esteem, Higher Ground is anything but boring; and, the young witch, sister to Tony, the warlock who just returned from El Salvador, where he and Cassandra Sandoval, were in search of the de la Paz Grimoires, finds herself face to face with Gabriel Escobar, the very warlock who stole the Grimoires from her mother. He is standing at her front door! No need to go into details now, they are there for you to discover. If you have been reading the Canyon Road Books, you know Christine Pope weaves a magical and intricate tapestry of the lives of the Castillo Clan of New Mexico. You can only expect a book that will keep you up at nights. This book will most definitely. Ava spreads her wings, traveling with the heart stopping, handsome warlock to New Orleans and eventually El Salvador, in search of someone who can help restore the powers taken from him by his evil brother and feared warlock, Primus of the Escobers. We watch Ava come into her own, a strong and confident witch, worthy of Gabriel’s attention. It is an absolute ” Must Read.” You won’t regret it! If you have not read the previous Canyon Road Books, you might prefer to before reading this one. Although this is a standalone, knowing the history of the of the clans and how they have interacted with one another, will certainly add to the richness of Pope’s romantic tales of magical gifts and courage.

Higher Ground by Christine Pope is another excellent adventure in the Witches of Canyon Road series! It’s 6 months after Tony and Cassandra escaped from the Escobar’s. Tony’s sister Ava has moved into his house since he is now with Cassandra and her clan. Like Tony, Ava doesn’t really know what she wants out of life, but when drop dead gorgeous Gabriel shows up on her doorstep, the future looks more interesting. Gabriel is actually looking for Tony, looking for his help because Gabriel’s brother did not take kindly to the burning of the dark magic books. In retaliation, he had Gabriel stripped of his magic and thrown out of the clan. Gabriel doesn’t just want his magic back, he wants to save his clan and he wanted Tony’s help doing it. Or rather Tony’s clan’s help getting back his magic. He planned on taking on his brother by himself. So starts a fascinating journey for both Ava and Gabriel as the meet various members of Ava’s clan, learn what powers are and aren’t available, and travel to New Orleans to find out about the books Loc had found there. Then there is the clandestine trip to Las Vegas, NW to free a trapped witch . . . I throughly enjoyed this part: meeting old friends again, learning about new powers, and the finding of new love! It was a wonderful book, but you are going to have to read yourself to see which brother wins! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
