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.

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!
If I told it would be a spoiler and that would be cruel. This book is too delectable to spoil any scene.
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.
Made be laugh, cry, cringe, gasp, shudder, quake & sit on the edge of my seat.
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 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.
Fan of philisophical fantasy, historic fiction, Victorian gothic, books that make you think!
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.
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.
The Source is a well-written book, very well performed, and and worth more than one read.
The vision of Jilo gathering and using everyone's energy. Also, the revelations about the old man who was "treated" by Mercy.
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.
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.
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".
