New Release Review! OF SPIRITS AND SUPERSTITION by Nyx Halliwell (Sister Witches of Raven Falls #4)

Of Spirits and Superstition cover

I see dead people…but I’m in big trouble when I become a ghost myself.

I’m Winter Whitethorne, psychic medium, and I find it easier to get along with the dead than the living. I’ve perfected invisibility spells so I can ‘ghost’ humans I don’t particularly like. Haunted by spirits who refuse to cross over, I struggle to act “normal” and not give into the bad luck that clings to me as deftly as my ghostly hitchhikers.

When my boyfriend, Ronan, is attacked three days before Yule, leaving him in a magickal coma, I accidentally discover my destiny is far bigger than talking to dead people. Not only can I reach across the veil and communicate with them, I have the ability to raise them and change the very fabric of the world. There’s no invisibility spell that’s going to solve that problem.

With my ghost cat familiar, Shade, as well as Persephone, a snarky new spirit guide who has a thing for ’70s sitcoms, I embark on a journey to return Ronan’s spirit to his body and stop a magickal disaster prophesied to take place on Yule.

But can I save my one true love and fix magick when I, too, end up a ghost?

A solid ending to a fun series!

Winter’s book wraps up the story of the Sister Witches of Raven Falls series with quite a punch! (No worries, though–author notes at the end tell us that there will be a new series in the universe next year, following Winter’s friend Asa :)) This one isn’t really the series book to start with–the events of each book build upon the others, and the many series threads get wrapped up nicely here–but since they’re all novellas, getting up to speed shouldn’t take you that long 🙂

Like the others in the series, Winter’s story is heavier on the sisters’ relationships and their struggles with the supernatural mystery than her romance, which is sweet but definitely not center stage here. As the family member who “can see dead people,” her book not only features the sisters and their familiars, but a whole host of spiritual characters as well, which adds a whole lot of fun. Plus, it’s a Christmas/Yule-timed story, which *almost* had me missing the snow that mostly melted away last week. 😉

Don’t forget the recipes at the end–at least two of which are cookies I’m definitely going to try soon!
