In an isolated mining community, men are turning into some kind of vicious and murdering beasts terrorizing the soldiers and workers alike. Prince Anton’s father has demanded his youngest son solve this mystery as another test of his leadership and fitness to be named heir. The Fawe sisters, Céline and Amelie, under Prince Anton’s protection and possessing the gifts of pre-and retro-cognition respectively are sent along with a contingent of soldiers to discover what is causing the beastly transformations at the mines. However, the answers they find may not bring salvation. WITCHES IN RED is the second book in the Mist-Torn Witches series and it picks up a little while after the events in the first book, THE MIST-TORN WITCHES. Céline and Amelie have settled in nicely in Castle Sèone’s surrounding village, finding peace running the apothecary’s shop. However, when Prince Anton calls on them to assist in a mission they’re unable to refuse. I loved WITCHES IN RED and the further development of the familiar characters, plus the introduction of fascinating new characters. All of the characters are well-developed, the setting is deliciously spooky and forbidding, and the mystery complex and intriguing. WITCHES IN RED continues the superb writing from THE MIST-TORN WITCHES and grabs you from the very beginning. If you’re going to read WITCHES IN RED, please pick up THE MIST-TORN WITCHES in order to get the full backstory of Céline and Amelie. You won’t be disappointed!

I think Barb Hendee has created a series that is definitely going to live on throughout literary history. The characters are realistic the story lines flow to the point where the book cannot be put down. You see the growth of the characters from the first book in the series. She has thrown in some surprises that I have a feeling are going to take the story to a different place than I originally thought, and it's going to be interesting to see how the stories will play out in the long run. If you enjoy fantasy writers such as J.R.R. Tolkein and George R.R., Martin you'll definitely enjoy this book. I don't want to put any spoilers because it will ruin it for those reading this review, but I can say that I can't wait for the next book in this series! Bravo Mrs. Hendee!
