She’s running out of time. And so is the world.

Claire Emerson is up against the clock. After learning on her sixtieth birthday that she’s one of four Crones destined to save the world, she’s been desperately trying to acquire the lifetime of magic she missed out on. But the mages who are out to destroy everything she loves aren’t waiting, and when one of the other Crones ends up on Claire’s doorstep—wounded and unconscious—Claire knows she’s out of time.

Leaving the safety of her warded house, she goes in search of the remaining Crones… only to find them under siege by the mages and the nearly indestructible monster they control. And without control over her powerful elemental magic, she has no idea how to rescue them.

Reviews

I flew through this book - still love Claire and all her faults, wit and courage. Things are getting more complicated as she struggles to juggle the responsibility of saving the world with protecting her family. But with new Crones being introduced she starts to see more allies - and more strong, mature women - what’s not to love?

Non-stop action! The second instalment in The Crone Wars does NOT disappoint!! I was lucky enough to receive an advanced reading copy and absolutely devoured it. The story starts off a few weeks after Book One left off, with Claire trying desperately to learn to control her magic and becoming more and more frustrated. The dynamics between her, Kevan and Lucan have changed with the realization that while she is a Crone, she is not THEIR Crone. A Gathering of Crones will keep you on the edge of your seat. You will be cheering Claire on as she refuses to give in to her insecurities in order to help save one of fellow Crones. Don't get me wrong - you'll want to shake her at times to remind her of her worth, but you'll never stop believing in her.
