ebook, 180 pages

Sometimes you have to fight black magic with blacker magic. But in trying to save the people she loves, will Audrey fall into the dark abyss that claimed her father?

In Book II of the Audrey's Guide series, Audrey learns about her witchy roots and continues to fight her nemesis; this time she must dig deeper than ever, experimenting with dark magic to combat the insidious enchantment that's invaded her newfound community. She travels to the magical compound on the Mad River, the home her mother fled twenty years ago.

Here Audrey meets her grandmother, the powerful matriarch of the Clan, and a host of colorful characters, some friends, some foes. When a sinister force begins to take over the magical community, Audrey must decide how far she's willing to go to protect the people she loves.

My thoughts about Audrey's Guide to Black Magic ~~

Ahhh, I thought the cover of Audrey's Guide to Witchcraft was beautiful. I think I love this one even more ~ I love the color blue!

Once again, Jody has written a very enchanting story which follows Audrey as she learns about the witching world. And what better time to read about black magic and witchcraft then Halloween time? I love reading Audrey's stories this time of year, they just get me in the mood for spookiness.

This time Audrey, her sister Meg, and their cousin Sadie are whisked away to the Mad River compound to try to help their mom battle evil. More and more responsibility is put on Audrey, which she just loves by the way, as her powers become stronger and more consistent.

Poor Meg has a hard time fitting in, here in this world where she is not the 'popular' sister, where she is the odd one out. It was interesting seeing the role reversal between these two characters as they are either in, or out, of their comfort zone.

There was plenty of danger and excitement to keep me wanting to flip the pages, or in this particular case, swiping my Kindle screen. But along with the witchy things happening, there were enough personal things going on in the story to make the characters seem real to me.

And oooooo the Epilogue! What a way to end book #2! I know we are in for a treat in book #3. I can't wait!!

And just because I love the cover and
the story in Audrey's Guide #1 ...
