Praise for The King of Bones and Ashes
“Palpable descriptions of magic both enchant and disturb…Horn expertly weaves disparate story lines into a breathless, enthralling ending.” —Booklist
“Horn’s rich characterizations and setting, sparkling magic, and creepy villains bolster the narrative, and his focus on women as major players is particularly refreshing. The terrifying conclusion will have readers looking forward to the next installment.” —Publishers Weekly
Magic without Mercy
From the bestselling author of the Witching Savannah series, comes the first book in a new trilogy as a bewitched young woman uncovers her family’s terrifying secret history . . .
Magic is seeping out of the world, leaving the witches who’ve relied on it for countless centuries increasingly hopeless.. While some see an inevitable end of their era, others are courting madness, and willing to sacrifice former allies, friends, and family to retain the power they covet. While the other witches watch their reality unravel, young witch Alice Marin is using magic’s waning days to delve into the mystery of numerous disappearances in New Orleans’ occult circles. Alice disappeared once, too—caged in an asylum by blood relatives. Recently freed, she fears her family may be more involved with the growing crisis than she ever dared imagine.
Yet the more she seeks the truth of her family’s troubled history, the more she realizes her already fragile psyche may be at risk. Discovering the cause of the vanishings, though, could be the only way to escape the reach of her mother’s lost soul while determining the future of all witches.

As a ruthless struggle erupts in a maelstrom of malevolent magic, psychic Nathalie Boudreau finds her destiny intertwined with that of an exiled witch.
