Publisher's summary

Her power has attracted the wrong kind of attention. Now a centuries-old witch wants to burn her at the stake....

Blackmouth, Scotland. After managing to bury a vicious witch with her elemental magic, Georjie is horrified to learn entombing the spellcaster in soil has enabled the dark woman to rise again…and time is running out.

Their romance blossoming in spite of the threat, Georjie and Lachlan travel to Dundee for clues to the fiend’s power. Learning that the ashes of three Wise will increase Daracha's power, and the ultimate goal is the destruction of the veil between worlds, Georjie realizes she's in way over her head.

When the vengeful hag's shadowy pet demon comes after her, Georjie narrowly escapes into the Fae realm. There, she’s warned against returning to face the danger by someone who has tangled with the witch before. She's encouraged to start a new life within the protection Queen Elphame's realm can provide. But Georjie won’t let the monster roam free, even if it means risking her own life.

Can Georjie unlock her magic or will the black witch claim her ashes?

Ashes of the Wise is the second book in the gripping Earth Magic Rises YA contemporary fantasy series. If you like wicked action, dark tales, a little romance, and bold heroes, then you’ll love A.L. Knorr’s wild ride across realms.

Another awesome book

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed everything from this author. I have read most of her books. I enjoyed this very much as well. It ends a bit on a cliff hanger of sorts. But I would definitely be reading the next one in the series regardless. We get to see Georjie have a bit more of a romance with Lachlan. In born of the earth we first meet Georjie. She has a brief romance in that book and I was kind of sad to see nothing come of that but I think Georjie.and Lachlan make a cute couple. But the romance isn’t the focus of this book. The focus is on the mystery surrounding the witch.

NO BRAINER 5 STARS

Fantastic story that carried me away on every step, leaving the reality of my life behind and wove me into the very fabric of the tale as only the very best authors can!
It's beautiful, scary, action packed and left me with a feeling of hope.
Narrated beautifully portraying scenes perfectly.
RECOMMENDED SERIES.

REALLY GOOD FAE FANTASY. THE WISE IS NOW THE WISER

BURIED THE ENEMY AND DONE...RIGHT... BURIED IN THE EARTH ONLY TO RETURN STRONGER AND TICKED OFF. SOUNDS LIKE MY OLDER SISTER. NOT.

STORYLINE IS GREAT. WELL WRITTEN AND EASY TO FOLLOW. SET IN SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS THIS STORY TAKES MY SOUL HOME BETWEEN WORLDS AND TIMES.
ACCEPTABLE FOR TEENS AND MATURE AUDIENCE.
WITCH & DARK MAGIC WHICH INCLUDES DISTURBING IMAGES.

NARRATOR IS GREAT AND EASY TO FOLLOW.

Loving this Series !

Georjie was always one of my favorite characters and that hasn't changed. Georjie and Lachlan are on a mission it is beyond dangerous. There isn't a lot of romance but what is there is sweet . The narration by penning is very good also .
