THE YEAR IS 1910. Eighteen-year-old Will Edwards has landed a prestigious apprenticeship at Detroit’s Tesla Industries, the most advanced scientific research center in the United States. It’s a plum prize for a young man who dreams of a career in the new science of Otherwhere Engineering.But his father doesn’t want him to go. And he won’t tell him why.
Determined to get there by any means necessary, Will finds unexpected support along the way. His old friend Jenny Hansen—daughter of a San Francisco timber baron—is eager to help him for reasons of her own. And so is his estranged brother Ben, who he hasn’t seen in over ten years.
But running away turns out to be the easy part. On the first full moon after his eighteenth birthday, Will is stricken by a powerful magic—a devastating curse laid upon his ancestors by the malevolent sangrimancer Aebedel Cowdray. Will must find a way to control the magic that possesses him—or the vengeful warlock’s spirit will destroy everything and everyone he loves.
My thoughts~ The Warlock's Curse is the third book in the Veneficas Americana series. This story is strong enough to stand on its own so do not be afraid to jump right into this book if you want.
M.K. Hobson, in my opinion, is a wonderful writer. The imagery pops right off the page. I have never read a book taking place during the early 1900's and through the description I pictured it perfectly. I think this book is what would be considered magical realism. In The Warlock's Curse is set in an alternate history where magic is common among everyday life.
Jenny is Wills partner on his journey and I instantly liked her. She can be a little feisty and is a determined young lady that knows how to get exactly what she needs. Though they are brought together to fulfill their own separate needs, a relationship unfolded before our eyes and I was really rooting for them.
I really enjoyed this story and am looking forward to the continuation of Will and Jenny's adventure.
