Book Review
A Witch’s Feast by C.N. Crawford

Almost a year ago, I took part in the book tour for The Witching Elm by C.N. Crawford. I was excited when the author reached out to me directly to review book two in The Memento Mori Series. I snatched up the opportunity to review A Witch’s Feast and continue the story of Toby and his friends.

Book two picks up right where book one left off. Toby and his friends are escaping Boston for the relative safety of the New England countryside. For me personally, I wish that there had been more of a recap of the events in book one at the start. I have a shoddy memory and The Witching Elm was the second book I read in 2015 so I was really stretching myself to recall the all the key events.



That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy A Witch’s Feast. There is a lot of action and a crazy, creepy cult. More political maneuverings and commentary about who has the right to wield the power of magic. There are some big topics up for discussion in this book and the kids in the story don’t take them lightly.

Just like book one, book two ends with a cliffhanger. I’m not sure what is next for Toby, Fiona and Thomas, but I hope they come out of their next adventure alive with their sense of humor in tact.

About C.N. Crawford

cn crawford author headshot

C.N. Crawford is not one person but two. Christine (C) grew up in the historic town of Lexington, and has a lifelong interest in New England folklore – with a particular fondness for creepy old cemeteries. Nick (N) spent his childhood reading fantasy and science fiction further north during Vermont’s long winters.

Together they work to incorporate real historical events and figures into contemporary urban fantasy novels.

  1. wow the cover is gorgeous and for some reason I’ve been interested in witches books these last days. Besides you had me at “New England countryside” and “crazy, creepy cult” 🙂 another blunt disregard to my reading rules for this year of not adding new books! this goes in the TBR pile 🙂

    • Yes, I agree, the covers are amazing! Shortly after I reviewed the first book, they got a new cover for it and this one followed suit. They are so lovely, dark and intriguing.

      Did you hear that they found site where they hung the Salem Witch Trial suspects?

  2. Has is really been almost a year since you reviewed The Witching Elm? I put it on my tbr (and possibly one-clicked it) back then…and have yet to read it. Hmm. I’m happy you had the opportunity to read book 2 and enjoyed it so much, despite not getting enough of a recap of book 1, Terri. I love the sound of all the intrigue going on – and how the characters seem to handle it all. Nice review!
