Image of Captive Soul: A Novel of the Dark Crescent Sisterhood

The middle chapter of Windsor’s back-to-back series takes her protagonists on a harrowing journey. Her characters are never in for an easy ride, as she places both physical and emotional challenges in their path. The complexity of the world of the Dark Crescent Sisterhood is a big reason why Windsor’s books are so intriguing and hard to put down. One of the genre’s consistently excellent players!

When fire sibyl Camille Fitzgerald and her quad defeated Rakshasa leader Strada and his troops, Camille was unable to kill Strada at the last moment because of a strange magic that passed between them. What Camille sensed, but could not believe, was that the soul of John Cole, which had been residing in Duncan, was shifted over to Strada’s body. Knowing he would be killed on sight, John has been tracking Rakshasa on his own, while fighting to keep the remnants of Strada’s essence trapped. Tarek, Strada’s brother, has now risen to power and is gathering new allies for his strike against the sibyls. Camille may find the answer to the Rakshasas’ defeat in the ancient past, but will the cost be too high? (BALLANTINE, Jan., 472 pp., $7.99)
