    As the daughter of an alchemist, Petra Dee has battled supernatural horrors and experienced astonishing wonders But there s no magic on earth that can defeat her recent cancer diagnosis, or help find her missing husband, Gabriel Still, she would bet all her remaining days that the answer to his disappearance lies in the dark subterranean world beneath the Rutherford Ranch on the outskirts of Temperance, Wyoming This is the fourth book in the Wildlands series previously titled the Dark Alche As the daughter of an alchemist, Petra Dee has battled supernatural horrors and experienced astonishing wonders But there s no magic on earth that can defeat her recent cancer diagnosis, or help find her missing husband, Gabriel Still, she would bet all her remaining days that the answer to his disappearance lies in the dark subterranean world beneath the Rutherford Ranch on the outskirts of Temperance, Wyoming This is the fourth book in the Wildlands series previously titled the Dark Alchemy series With the exception of book two I ve felt like this series has gotten better and better The story was very engrossing and I had a hard time putting this book down However, it was not perfect There were some things that seemed a little contrived and too convenient, but I think the fact that I m enjoying this series so much made those thingstolerable All the characters that I liked from previous books are back Petra, Maria, Gabe, Nine, and Sig Petra is fighting cancer in this book and her friend Maria is acting the mother hen I have to admit that annoyed me a little I could understand Petra s feelings about the Chemo and the hospital and Maria s feelings about wanting her friend to take better care of herself, but they both still annoyed me a little bit Gabe is dealing with his own circumstances perpetuated by Owen and Petra sets out to find him Besides the cancer, there are several obstacles along the way, one being the mermaid like creature that has been living in the underground lake beneath the Rutherford ranch Then there is the bar owner Lev, who getspage time in this installment and his character gets expanded upon I did enjoy finding outabout him, but I almost thought there was a little too much going on In the end it ended up all being tied together I won t say how so as not to spoil anything As I said before, it felt a little contrived and too convenient, but it was still very enjoyable I was left with a few big questions at the end of the book, and a theory that I kind of hope is wrong view spoiler How did Gabe get out of the predicament he was in He just appears ok at the end Did it have anything to do with Lascaris Apparently he has been awakened somehow hide spoiler I ll definitely be reading the next book in the series to find out the answers.Review also posted at Writings of a Reader

    Laura Bickle is an auto buy author for me, and with Witch Creek she once again shows why she is.This is a cool read, and I finished it in one sitting I just didn t want to put it down Now I ll have to reread her books to get my fix until her next book releases.Petra is seriously ill and Gabe has been imprisoned I must say I wondered how things ever would turn out for them It seemed a very hopeless situation Luckily there was Sig to cheer Petra up a bit, and Petra also gets help from her fri Laura Bickle is an auto buy author for me, and with Witch Creek she once again shows why she is.This is a cool read, and I finished it in one sitting I just didn t want to put it down Now I ll have to reread her books to get my fix until her next book releases.Petra is seriously ill and Gabe has been imprisoned I must say I wondered how things ever would turn out for them It seemed a very hopeless situation Luckily there was Sig to cheer Petra up a bit, and Petra also gets help from her friends Maria and Nine Where I could sympathize with Owen in the last book, I didn t much care for him in this one I also couldn t bring myself to feel for the mermaid, however long she might have been trapped before Owen finds her She is seriously creepy There was one other viewpoint character who I really liked, and his storyline was interesting and sad.All in all this is a great read with lots of things going on The ending was satisfying, but also hints at lotstrouble coming Petra s way I ll be stalking Laura Bickle s feeds for news about the next book in this series

    Short Summary Petra Dee won t let a little thing like cancer stop her from finding her husband who she fears is lost to the darkness that lies under her town, but the Tree of Life is growing strong again and the power behind it won t be stopped.Thoughts Petra s perseverance to find her husband was admirable, but quitting chemo halfway through to go in search of him was fairly asinine and this installment, the weakest so far, could and should have beenabout her search for Gabriel.Verdict Short Summary Petra Dee won t let a little thing like cancer stop her from finding her husband who she fears is lost to the darkness that lies under her town, but the Tree of Life is growing strong again and the power behind it won t be stopped.Thoughts Petra s perseverance to find her husband was admirable, but quitting chemo halfway through to go in search of him was fairly asinine and this installment, the weakest so far, could and should have beenabout her search for Gabriel.Verdict I love this magical series and despite this weak installment, the cliffhanger means there areinstallments to come and I m still definitely on board forPetra and 100%of her coyote side kick Sig I received this book free from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

    This is the fourth suspenseful and intriguing volume concerning geologist Petra Dee, her pet coyote Sig, and their friends and associates It s a very enjoyable series with excellent characterization and lots of clever bits and pieces, but I believe it would be necessary to read the earlier volumes in order to get much out of this one This volume ends with some questions left unanswered, but enough is resolved from the previous volume that it felt like a complete story Pretty good stuff all ar This is the fourth suspenseful and intriguing volume concerning geologist Petra Dee, her pet coyote Sig, and their friends and associates It s a very enjoyable series with excellent characterization and lots of clever bits and pieces, but I believe it would be necessary to read the earlier volumes in order to get much out of this one This volume ends with some questions left unanswered, but enough is resolved from the previous volume that it felt like a complete story Pretty good stuff all around

    A page turning adventure I could not put down I started the book right before midnight on Saturday and finished it around 11 30 pm Sunday night I just couldn t stop reading.This is book four of Petra and Gabe s story and the most emotional and in depth one yet This book pulled no punches when it came to making you feel the story Witch Creek proves that Bickle s strengths are definitely character development and world building as she takes us deep into the wild and weird world of Temperance A page turning adventure I could not put down I started the book right before midnight on Saturday and finished it around 11 30 pm Sunday night I just couldn t stop reading.This is book four of Petra and Gabe s story and the most emotional and in depth one yet This book pulled no punches when it came to making you feel the story Witch Creek proves that Bickle s strengths are definitely character development and world building as she takes us deep into the wild and weird world of Temperance from the current mess involving Owen the latest Rutherford heir, all the way back to the town s dark beginnings with Lascaris We finally get Gabe s backstory in bits and pieces as Petra searches for him while he s being held prisoner by Owen Rutherford Petra fears the worst, that she may never see her love again and that heartbreak will yank at your emotions as you ache for the two of them to be reunited.We are introduced to new characters and we see a couple characters fleshed out that were previously just in the shadows We learn a lot about Lev, the bartender, who becomes an integral player in Petra s story We learn about his past and we suffer his heartbreak I wonder how he ll play into future books I wouldn t mind seeing him become Petra s ally.And Sig, Petra s coyote sidekick, we learn a littleabout him in each book I love how Bickle usually incorporates an animal sidekick into her books and slowly reveals that the animal is muchthan what they appear to be.The most gripping part of Witch Creek is that it takes the reader on a roller coaster of emotions as characters deal with death and rebirth from different perspectives Petra faces death from cancer Gabe faces death at Owen and The Mermaid, Muirenn s hands Other characters deal with the death or impending death of loved ones Even the Tree of Life, The Lunaria, is dealing with its own version of death and rebirth.Parts of this book are truly heart wrenching It was so well written, so deepI was in tears several times.The Wildlands Series is the perfect blend of alchemy, folklore, and magic with Petra and Gabe s love story at the heart of it Urban fantasy, contemporary fantasy, with touches of horror and romance This multi genre mash up is a must read

    So much drama Petra is in treatment for cancer Sig, her coyote sidekick, is lost without her And her husband, Gabriel, is still missing And now there s a flesh eating mermaid on the loose Petra is such a strong woman She s overcome some truly crazy obstacles in the world of alchemy and finally married her true love It all sounds rosy, but the Big C is kicking her butt Never in her wildest dreams did she imagine cancer as her deadliest foe As she weakens and all things point to a bad end So much drama Petra is in treatment for cancer Sig, her coyote sidekick, is lost without her And her husband, Gabriel, is still missing And now there s a flesh eating mermaid on the loose Petra is such a strong woman She s overcome some truly crazy obstacles in the world of alchemy and finally married her true love It all sounds rosy, but the Big C is kicking her butt Never in her wildest dreams did she imagine cancer as her deadliest foe As she weakens and all things point to a bad ending, she uses her remaining time and strength to find Gabriel And nothing, not a crazy would be alchemist or a deadly mermaid, will stop her.Witch Creek was an emotional rollercoaster for me I adore Petra and always pictured her as a fierce warrior, strong and unstoppable But cancer has weakened her My heart went out to her Her once strong body so gaunt and weak The face staring back at her from the mirror, a stranger She may be down but don t count her out, though I loved that she still had a trick or two up her sleeve And when the unthinkable happened, I had to stop, go back, and read it again, stunned.Sig still brings a smile to my face A loyal companion to Petra and always looking out for her But he s still a wily coyote and up to some fun antics.And the mermaid, Muireen She s a nasty one Tricky and not too pretty to look at, she likes her meals raw and wriggling Don t get too close She lurks just beneath the surface Hungry Waiting.While not as fast moving as the previous books, Petra s story is still a strong one and the saga is still addictive.I received a complimentary copy My review is voluntarily given

    Book four in series or two, depending on how you count it Nine of Stars ended on a cliffhanger with Gabe kidnapped by a madman and Petra facing cancer treatments so the book starts quickly and is a fast read Even though I knew that this wasn t the last book, Petra s cancer added a lot of tension and poignancy to the story she needs to find Gabe before she dies and she doesn t have a lot to lose so takes chances she might not otherwise.I was especially impressed by the story s subplot, featu Book four in series or two, depending on how you count it Nine of Stars ended on a cliffhanger with Gabe kidnapped by a madman and Petra facing cancer treatments so the book starts quickly and is a fast read Even though I knew that this wasn t the last book, Petra s cancer added a lot of tension and poignancy to the story she needs to find Gabe before she dies and she doesn t have a lot to lose so takes chances she might not otherwise.I was especially impressed by the story s subplot, featuring Lev the bartender At first I was puzzled how the events Lev unexpectedly finds out he has a son would connect to the main story of Petra and Gabe And then when I realized the mermaid villain was about to take a hand instant dread and super tension and then BOOM a plot twist I wasn t expecting at all but was so PERFECT Yeah Me like It boosted the book from 4 stars to 5
