Just as things have settled down in the off-the-map Long Island town of North Hampton for the magical Beauchamp family, everything gets turned upside down once more when Freya's twin brother Fryr, or "Freddie" as he's called now, returns from Limbo with shocking news - that it was none other than Freya's fiancé, Killian Gardiner, who set up his downfall.He begs Freya to keep his presence a secret, even from their own family, but somehow the irascible Freddie is still able to conduct many affairs with the town's young lovelies from his self-imposed exile. Until he falls for the wrong girl.
While Freya tries to keep her brother from exacting revenge on the man she loves, Ingrid has her own problems. Her human boyfriend, Matt Noble, becomes entangled in a complicated investigation, and when the magical creatures at the center of it come to Ingrid for help, she has a difficult choice to make.
To top it off, a dead spirit is trying to make contact with Joanna - but does it mean to harm or warn the witches? All hell breaks loose at the family reunion over Thanksgiving, and much mayhem ensues, but when the culprit behind Freddie's imprisonment is finally revealed, it may already be too late to staunch the poison that's been released by the serpent's kiss.

My take on this book: CAUTION! IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS BOOK YET. CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN RISK! THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!

This book is soo good. I know that I didn’t review the first book but I read the first book last year so I can’t exactly do that. But this book is soo good. It basically continues off with the end of the last book where Freddie is having Freya spy on her fiancé so that they could find his trident so that they can prove Freddie’s innocent.

But in doing so we find out a whole lot of things. This book series is a lot different from the television series, that even though has the same name, is not the same as the book series. For one Ingrid isn’t the same at all. A lot of is different and that is a good a good thing.

I love this book and even more so when we find out who actually took Freddie’s trident and is still around just not in the same year/time of when everyone else is. But this book is a good one and it’s just so good.

I will recommended this book to everyone that has read the first book. There is one other book and I so can’t wait to read it after I get caught up.

This Review was previously posted on my blogspot site which I will be closing soon.
