This post is a little late, as the book I’m about to recommend came out several weeks ago, but I only had a chance to read it just recently, now that I’m no longer running in twenty different directions. In any case, C.C. Finlay’s The Patriot Witch should go onto your summer reading list. It’s a fast, fun, historical fantasy set during the American Revolution, and two more volumes are coming out soon, for those readers who like their books to come as a series. I’m not normally a series fan, but this is one I’ll look forward to continuing on in for a while to come. The characters are well-drawn, the pacing tight, but the most interesting facet of it for me is the well-developed historical backdrop.
Take a walk over to one of your favorite online booksellers or to your favorite bookseller in town, and pick this up.
