Book Three of The Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy
Blood Magick

County Mayo is rich in the traditions of Ireland, legends that Branna O’Dwyer fully embraces in her life and in her work as the proprietor of The Dark Witch shop, which carries soaps, lotions, and candles for tourists, made with Branna’s special touch.

Branna’s strength and selflessness hold together a close circle of friends and family—along with their horses and hawks and her beloved hound. But there’s a single missing link in the chain of her life: love…

She had it once—for a moment—with Finbar Burke, but a shared future is forbidden by history and blood. Which is why Fin has spent his life traveling the world to fill the abyss left in him by Branna, focusing on work rather than passion.

Branna and Fin’s relationship offers them both comfort and torment. And though they succumb to the heat between them, there can be no promises for tomorrow. A storm of shadows threatens everything that their circle holds dear. It will be Fin’s power, loyalty, and heart that will make all the difference in an age-old battle between the bonds that hold their friends together and the evil that has haunted their families for centuries.

My Thoughts

Finding myself in need of reading something by one of my favorite authors it was a great pleasure to discover that the initial books Dark Witch and Shadow Spell were both available to read by borrowing digital copy from the public library I am a member of. As per my usual expectations the books brought to life vivid characters who were created to battle an ancient evil, one that had brought sorrow time and again to the family members as well as friends of the original Dark Witch.

In this third book Blood Magick the wheel of time has turned and the circle of power is finally strong enough to prove equal to the task of ridding the world of Cabhan, with the added benefit of finally also having the HEA that we have wanted from the beginning for Branna and Fin. The couple have been long divided because of circumstances beyond their control, now their time has come and their entwined destiny has become a reality far grander than even their imaginings when younger!

With my favorite themes of love, family and the bonds of friendship as well as magic this series gave me hours of pleasure while immersed in it.

Powerful, emotionally moving, totally in keeping with what I wanted as well as what I expected and so worth the long wait to get the book off library hold to read! I enjoyed this third book as much if not more than the first two combined for the simple reason that the story for Branna and Fin was a very long time coming and the buildup was done excellent justice with the actual execution.
