Publisher's Summary

Book Two of the Witching Savannah series

Graceful trees and historic buildings fill Savannah, Georgia, but beneath the city’s Southern splendor, its supernatural roots run deep. The members of local witch families grace the society pages…when they’re not secretly protecting their magical work from dark forces.

Savannah resident Mercy Taylor may now be in control of the South’s most powerful family of witches, but she’s struggling to master her newfound magic. Pregnant with her first child and still reeling from a heartbreaking betrayal, she just wants to be able to use her supernatural abilities without accidentally destroying dishes or blasting the doors off buildings.

But when Mercy’s long-presumed-dead mother suddenly returns, begging Mercy to keep her presence under wraps, the witch wonders how many secrets her family is hiding…and who she can really trust. And when the danger around her intensifies to deadly levels, Mercy knows she must discover the truth behind her family’s magic - before it destroys her.

The second book in J.D. Horn’s Witching Savannah series, The Source casts a thrilling spell.

    Story
    "Hold on, it's a rip roaring ride!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! Because it is extraordinary. Nothing is expected, nothing is as is seems. It grips your attention & takes you on one heck of a ride. And I'd stand in line to buy a ticket!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Source?

    If I told it would be a spoiler and that would be cruel. This book is too delectable to spoil any scene.


    Which character – as performed by Shannon McManus – was your favorite?

    I love Geelo. I sure I'm spelling her name wrong & I apologize. Shannon did a wonderful job on all characters but I feel she captured Geelo perfectly.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made be laugh, cry, cringe, gasp, shudder, quake & sit on the edge of my seat.


    Any additional comments?

    I read the first book on this series quickly but took my time on this one. Now that we know many of the players, this 2nd book is more in depth, more twists, turns & surprises so I only listened when I could savor each word. And savor them I did. Hats off to the author. He is a gem!

    "I am looking forward to the next installment..."

    I really enjoyed this series. It was refreshing and smart. I got quite a few chuckles, and parts felt all too human. Although this series is essentially about a witch, I loved the southern charm of the characters. There is a lot of atmosphere and detail in these books which gives you a picture in your mind of the story setting. I thought the family dynamics were very well written and thought out. My favorite character was Geelo, but I do have hopes for the Gollum too.

    "Unique read, but a little convoluted"
    What did you love best about The Source?

    The narration is great, each character is very distinctly portrayed, and she tells the story with gusto.


    Would you be willing to try another book from J. D. Horn? Why or why not?

    Yes - I want to finish out the series, but I feel I would have to be in the right mood to try another. These books are a little bit dark and complicated for my tastes.f


    Have you listened to any of Shannon McManus’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Only the first in this series (The Line). They were both very good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    There was certainly a lot of action and mystery, and that made me want to figure it out, but at times it seems that Horn changes things just for the sake of throwing a wrench in, so some new twists actually frustrated me and made me want to listen less.

    Story
    "Too many convoluted plotlines"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not particularly. I loved the first book. As a former resident of Savannah, GA, hearing about the places I used to frequent (and the pub I used to work in- pretty sure it has to be the inspiration behind the one in the book) was very exciting. I loved listening to a story that seemed to evoke the feelings I had while living there and bring to life the innate magic that is daily life in Savannah. The second installment didn't possess that same sort of magic for me though. Too many plotlines emerged and as a result, the story felt chaotic and I didn't have much emotional connection with the characters anymore. Their emotional responses made sense, but seemed forced.


    Would you be willing to try another book from J. D. Horn? Why or why not?

    I will probably give the next book in the series a go, just because I want it to get back on track and feel loyal to it because of my Savannah connection, but I am not expecting it to be anything riveting.

    Story
    "Somewhat predictable, but well worth it"
    Where does The Source rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Source is a well-written book, very well performed, and and worth more than one read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Source?

    The vision of Jilo gathering and using everyone's energy. Also, the revelations about the old man who was "treated" by Mercy.


    What about Shannon McManus’s performance did you like?

    Shannon is almost flawless. She has improved in providing male voices, which was - in my opinion - the only (and minor) flaw with the first book in the series. She is a superb reader, and I hope to discover her on many other books.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Didn't make me laugh or cry, but provided lots to think about. It was occasionally predictable, which can be a problem - but there were more than enough twists to ensure that the person who stuck with the book got multiple surprises.


    Any additional comments?

    Once again, Savannah (the city) becomes very much a character in the story. Folks who love Savannah should probably give the series a try, even if they don't normally read "witch books".

    "Great second"

    This is the second in a trilogy, and all of the main characters return for a exciting fight between good and evil. I enjoy this series so far because of the twists, turns and the unexpected surprise return of mixed relatives, good and bad. I would recommend this book to any followers of the witchy series, "Beautiful Creatures". It was easy to get attached to this family full of different powers and personalities, however, I have to divulge that I only made it half way through the third book. I gave it up because I did not like the way the story was going and almost every review I read said that it ruined the ending. This is not a practice I usually perform. The first two were very good and worth the time, Shannon McManus narration definitely adds spunk and depth to the story.

    "Good sequel. .."

    I felt the narrator did a good job sounding as the voice of Mercy. The story had a nice flow. It wasn't too slow nor rushed at the end, it was nicely built up and somewhat brought to closure. There were a few things that were left open forthe 3rd book in the series. Without giving anything away I'll day if you enjoyed the first book in the series then you'll must likely enjoy this one as well.

    "Loved it"

    I forgot how much I enjoyed The Line. There are many characters that have complex stories individually and together. It kept my attention at all times. It's well written, compelling the narration was fantastic. At first, I was somewhat disappointed that I couldn't see a window to add more books, then (***SPOILERS***) I remembered the baby and Peter being Fae is dangling out in the universe waiting to be explored. YAY! I enjoyed that it wasn't all rainbows and sunshine. There's some darkness to it that digs in and plays with your emotions more than some books in this genre.

    "Very full story"

    The second book in this series did not disappoint, nor did it stall in any way. One thing after another hits keeping the story very exciting and the plot thickening. Can't wait to listen to the third book.
