ARC Review--Legend of Witchtrot Road by E.J. Stevens

Surviving agitated ghosts, irritated witches, angry werewolves, and the horrors of high school has never been so hard.

The night of Samhain may be behind them, but Yuki and her friends have only begun to face the challenges of their paranormal gifts. Tensions are rising--in the pack, at school, and within their tightly knit group of friends.

The tragic death of Wakefield High student Dylan Jacobs has emotions boiling over. The J-Team, Yuki's arch nemesis, have turned the entire football team against her. They claim that Yuki is a witch and blame her for the death of their fellow teammate. Will Yuki be able to solve the mystery of Dylan's death, and the legend of Witchtrot Road, before tempers flare and things turn violent?

Emma is the friend that Yuki turns to when things get tough, but she's been behaving strangely. Emma has been acting distant and seems to be coming down with a mysterious illness. What will Yuki and her friends do if their healer is truly sick?

Calvin has become Alpha and wants the best for his pack. He is a dedicated and compassionate leader willing to do anything for the good of his people, but will Cal be able to hold the pack together when a fiery, young werewolf comes seeking revenge?

Simon may still be a roguish playboy, but he is taking his role as Calvin's second in command deadly serious. Will Simon be able to focus on his pack duties when he is forced to face his dark, emotional past?

I received this e-ARC from the author for review

E.J. Stevens' Legend of Witchtrot Road picks up where we last left Yuki and her friends. Although since I read the first two books many many books ago, it took me a bit to get caught up. But it was still a good story and another 1 day read!

Witchtrot Road has its legend and nearly everyone in town avoids it after dark, because long ago a witch was killed and took his revenge on the travelers on the road. It's explained better in the novella. Anyway, everyone believes its cursed, especially since it was where one of the students at the high school was killed. And naturally the J Team believes it was all Yuki's fault. Typical jocks.

Yuki's life is getting complicated and dangerous. She still has the witches' amulet that she stole from last time around and she wants to give it back, and fear is only one factor in that decision, not to mention the nightmares she gets regarding it.

There's also a new wolf in town, one that is very angry with Simon, Gabriel was the brother of Meredith--Simon's old girlfriend who died because of him. And Gabriel is definitely a piece of work! And he has his eyes set on Emma, which doesn't make Simon too happy either. We've been seeing the sparks fly between Simon and Emma lately and they really start flying now, there are more than a few hints, not to mention the ending!

This is definitely an interesting series and one that I find to be quite entertaining! I love Yuki! Her personality is just fun. I like her attitude, especially when it comes to high school. Not that I was a "goth" like her, but I still feel sort of a connection with her. Really interested in seeing what Yuki and her friends will wind up in next! The books so far continue to happen within the same school year, and Yuki's senior year is definitely going to be one she will never forget!

Overall rating 4/5 stars

Legend of Witchtrot Road releases in October
