A Stain on the Soul ( Caitlyn Bk 2) by Elizabeth Davies ** Blog Tour Review & Giveaway**

Today I am featuring Book 2 in the Magical Realism trilogy by Elizabeth Davies, Caitlyn - A Stain on the Soul. There is also a great giveaway and the opportunity to win signed copies of the first two books in the trilogy. 
 

Resigned to another lifetime of being a witch’s familiar, Caitlyn has found a degree of peace in her role as the Duke of Normandy’s protector and spy.


But that peace is shattered when she returns to her native land only to come face-to-face with her past, and fall in love with a man who she desperately hopes will become her future.


My Thoughts

Set in the 11th century, in the decades leading up to the Norman Conquest in 1066, historical events are interwoven with magical realism, with witchcraft and sorcery coming into play. This is the second book in Elizabeth Davies' trilogy concerning Caitlyn, a witch's familiar, who can change her form between that of a woman and a cat. The victim of a witch's curse, she is trapped in thrall to different witches - in this book, to Arlette, the mother of William of Normandy. At the end of the story, the author gives historical background on the period and the bloodlines which is really informative. 

    I haven't read the first in the series, but I did not find that a hindrance. I enjoyed seeing the medieval world through Caitlyn's eyes, especially when she was taking on the form of a cat. Tension is built into the story and to me, it is quite unpredictable at times which adds to the suspense. Ending on a major cliff-hanger, the third book in the series is beautifully set up with a really intriguing meeting.

In short: A touch of magic for a Hallowe'en read.
