For the most part I have found this series to be mostly so-so. Now, with what is reported to be the last in the series, Ms. Damsgaard delivers a truly 5 star read! I have always liked Abby, but have been on the fence about Ophelia through the whole series. In this book she finally comes into her own. This is a very strong story and I find I'm always drawn to a story that deals with "mountain witches" as they figure in my own family background. The story revolves around the strong women in Ophelia's family, as well as earth magick and spirits. If you like this series anyway, you will love this offering. Job VERY well done, Ms. Damsgaard!
