✱✱Book Review✱✱ Waking for Winter by Katherine McIntyre

 

The Philadelphia Coven has thwarted the Order of the Serpent’s every attempt to destroy their city only to draw out the worst nightmare from the Otherworld, the Caoranach. One of the Coven’s own, Cami Akiyama, has already met this creature—the very monster who tortured her, branding her with a mark. Given Cami’s history with the big bad, the Coven leader assigns her a bodyguard, none other than the gorgeous and lethal necromancer, Dante Martinez, the ex-boyfriend she disappeared on years ago. One conversation confirms the spark between them never died, and based on the way Dante flirts, he won’t allow that flame to extinguish without a fight.

No one has ever compared to Dante and the incendiary passion he inspired in her, but the Caoranach broke her—Cami’s too damaged for any sort of relationship. Not like that stops him. If anything, he fights harder for the memories of a love that kept her sane on the bleakest nights. And despite every effort to distance, she finds herself falling for him all over again. Except the Caoranach isn’t finished with her—the branded mark holds the secret to the city’s destruction or salvation, and Cami stands in the center of the storm.



Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
There's a shortlist of authors that are automatic reads for me. All it takes is for their name to be on the cover and I'm in. Katherine McIntyre is firmly on that list. No matter the storyline, genre, or trope, if KM writes it, I'm gonna read it. And there is a very good chance that I'm gonna love it. Such is the case with Waking for Winter.
This is the fourth book in the Philadelphia Coven Chronicles and it brings the series to a close, so it was bittersweet for me. I hate to see the series end but I'm excited to see what the author does next. The series has been full of danger, adventure, terrific characters, and off-the-charts romance. For this final book, Cami and Dante get a second chance love story, and you can't help but root for them to get that happy ever after. I've loved every couple in this series, but I think the banshee and the necromancer may be my favorite.
It seems no matter how many books I read by this author, I'm always amazed at the detail in the world she creates and the development of her characters. This is a series of fierce heroines and the men who love them, of supernatural baddies and edge-of-your-seat action, of family, friendship, and love. This book, like its predecessors, is wonderfully written and everything I look for in an Urban Fantasy.
If you're not familiar with the series, I'd recommend starting at book one to get the full experience. The series may have come to an end, but it's one that I'll be revisiting from time to time.
