Set in the same world as Faith Hunter’s New York Times bestselling Jane Yellowrock novels, the second Soulwood novel tells the story of a woman whose power comes from deep within the earth...
Before Nell Ingram met skinwalker Jane Yellowrock, she had no one to rely on, finding strength only in her arcane connection to the dark woods around her. But now she has friends in the newly formed PsyLED team to keep her grounded—even if being part of the agency responsible for policing paranormals comes with dangers of its own....
After training at the PsyLED academy, Nell returns home to her woods to find the land feeling sick and restless. And that sickness is spreading. With the help of her team, under the leadership of agent Rick LaFleur, Nell tries to determine the cause. But nothing can prepare them for the evil that awaits: an entity that feeds on death itself. And it wants more....
No weeds to read thru
Ms hunter delivers a truly unique character without missing a beat and makes the story flow so u won't put it down until done. Nell is a puzzle and whatever she is will be a mystery well worth waiting to read and solve.
Another grand ride.
If you're a Faith Hunter reader, then this one's for you. Solid characters in large number and not a cardboard cutout among them. Dialogue is well-crafted, varied and believable. The story grabs you on two fronts, the whodunnit is smartly appointed, the emotional arc is hardy and never sappy.
This series shows real muscle and I'm hooked.
If you're new to Ms. Hunter, I'm jealous. You get to start with Skinwalker and work your way down to this gem. Wow.
must read, pre-order shelf
Nell Ingram has decided to join the PsyLED team. Now back from training, she finds her land ill with the haunting presence of one she thought long dead and that presence has nefarious plans. Nell must stop this evil before it contaminates her land.
While Nell fights, the evil attacking her land, there is another presence and PsyLED has been called in. Something is effecting neighborhoods, pond life and other living creatures in the nearby woods. Being attuned to the land, Nell is the perfect person to root out this rogue spirit effecting not only the land but an ancient power that should not be woken.
Can’t wait to see what is developing with the PsyLED team and specifically with Occam and his devoted protectiveness. Jane’s ex, Rick, past choices have truly come back to bite him in the butt and he has found himself in a major pickle.
We still are left wondering about Nell, her abilities and what her family’s roll is in all this but it is sure to be one heck of ride to find out.
Amazing storytelling is what I’ve come to expect from Faith Hunter and that is just what she delivers in Cursed on the Land. Taking place in the Jane Yellowrock world, Soulwood is a fabulous series that is going to take its rightful place on my must read, pre-order shelf right along with all my other favorite reads.
White knuckle reading, page turner that you just didn’t want to put down, Cursed on the Land is sure to enchant any urban fantasy reader.
