Starred Review

The Mysteries of Thorn Manor is a light-hearted novella sequel to Sorcery of Thorns. After Elisabeth and Nathaniel battled evil forces to save the world in the first book and discovered they had allies in each other, Elisabeth nursed Nathaniel back to health -- and is still spending the nights in his room and now in his bed. (Though they've only been kissing so far.)

When the wards on the house set up by Nathaniel's ancestors set a storm all around the house so they can't even leave, they need to investigate what's going on. They discover that the house wants Nathaniel to court Elisabeth properly as a sorcerer should -- including three impossible tasks.

This story is sweet romantic fun. You should read the first book before tackling this one so you can properly appreciate it.
