Review: Circle of the Moon and Spells for the Dead by Faith Hunter

Spells for the Dead (Soulwood #5)Spells for the Dead by Faith Hunter
My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, so good! I read Cir­cle of the Moon right after fin­ish­ing Final Heir, then real­ized that Spells for the Dead was out, too. So lots of Faith Hunter, all in a row, and I loved it all. I was mourn­ing the end of the Jane Yel­lowrock series, and I real­ly thought I pre­ferred it over the Soul­wood series. 

Then I got immersed in Nel­l’s world for a cou­ple of books. As much as I love Jane, I find Nell more relat­able for some rea­son. I enjoy get­ting to see more of Rick, Occam, Firewind, and the oth­ers, too.

Cir­cle of the Moon gives us more of Rick­’s past, as it endan­gers him and all who care about him in the present. Spells for the Dead takes us along as Nell learns more about her own abil­i­ties and dis­cov­ers a new type of practitioner.

I do won­der about how the Nell and Jane time­lines fit togeth­er. I wish there were a chart or some­thing we could refer to somewhere.
