This Coven Won't Break: 08/25/21

This Coven Won't Break by Isabel Sterling

This Coven Won't Break by Isabel Sterling is the sequel to These Witches Don't Burn. Hannah Walsh is still reeling from being attacked by Hunters; her father's murder, and losing her house to fire. Now the Hunters are stepping up their attacks and the Council wants Hannah's help to put an end to them.

There's a satisfactory wrapping up of the threads left open by the novella and the novel. But it's a ride full of angst, missteps, and death.

From about the second chapter until the last fifty pages, The Coven Won't Break is nonstop action and tension. There's very little time to breath or process. It's an attempt to keep this novel a nail biter all the way to the end, but without those quiet moments the action becomes boring.

Three stars
