[Review]: The Romeo Catchers by Alys Arden

Title: The Romeo Catchers
Author: Alys Arden
Series: The Casquette Girls
Genre: Young Adult
Release Date: May 23, 2017

Summary:  Is blood thicker than magic in La Nouvelle-OrlĂ©ans?

Tormented by the fate she condemned her mother to, and by the lies she’s forced to tell to cover it up, Adele scours Storm-ravaged New Orleans for the truth about her family’s magical past. But every turn leads her back to the one person she's determined to forget: Niccolò Medici. Not even the multitude of enchanted locks on the attic door trapping Nicco within can break their connection.

Sensing Nicco calling to Adele, Isaac tries relentlessly to keep her from exploring paths too dark that would endanger them all. But a new threat is rising: the Medici’s presence has attracted something else to New Orleans…an older enemy, one that will bring Isaac’s haunted past to life, test the witches’ friendships, and jeopardize Adele and Isaac’s blossoming relationship.

In this spellbinding continuation of The Casquette Girls saga, Adele must draw on the past—from seventeenth-century Florence, a time bubbling with alchemy and fraternal betrayal—and sort history from fantasy if she is to have any chance of saving her mother, her coven, and her magic.

The Romeo Catchers is the sequel to The Casquette Girls, which definitely was my favorite book from last year. This was a brilliant sequel. In this continuation we got a story from different points of view. I loved learning about the Medici Brothers riveting backstory.  Isaac and Adele learning their new powers and oh, that ending. I can't wait for more. Ms. Arden is an amazing storyteller. This is really a statement for the whole series, but here it is....If you didn't go into this book loving New Orleans, by the end of the book/series, you will. A must read.

    1. Not sure, that is how they designed the cover. The characters do have faces.
