4.25 Stars! Witchbane is book one in the series and it was also my first book by Morgan Brice (aka Gail Z. Martin) and let me tell you, it was an unexpected delight. Seth suffered through a horrific event when his brother and him were attacked by the disciple of a warlock that lived two-hundred years ago, resulting in his brother's death. After his parents died in an accident, Seth devotes his life to search for any information regarding the warlock and his disciples, and vows to stop them from killing again. While searching for the next probable victim, he meets a sexy bartender and hooks up with him, and Sonny turns out to be Jackson Evan Malone, the man Seth wants to protect. Unfortunately for them, the warlock that is after Evan is getting very close to them. Will Seth be able to stop him in time? The book was a bit like watching an episode of Supernatural, fun and entertaining mixed with some horror/suspense/paranormal elements. It was fast-paced, well-written, witty and enjoyable. I loved Seth and his determination to stop the warlock in time, and I found his reasoning for not disclosing his past to Evan very sound. I know it backfired, but that wasn't exactly Seth's fault. I liked Evan, but really, there were a lot of times in which I wanted to slap him silly, especially during the last 25-30% of the book. He was more than a bit frustrating, and couldn't he even give Seth the benefit of the doubt after all they'd gone through? Grrrr! Other than that, I think Seth and Evan had fantastic chemistry and the sex scenes were deliciously hot. The warlock's storyline was really interesting and I enjoyed how it unfolded. While it wasn't that difficult to figure out who the baddie was, I wasn't expecting the twist concerning one of Evan's friends. Overall, this was a very solid start to the series and I'm very interested in reading more in this fascinating world and seeing where Ms. Brice will take Seth and Evan next. While I had read this book before, it was a treat to listen to Kale's narration. He has a very pleasant tone and gave the story that little extra something to make it even more enjoyable. My only complaint is that even if he gave the secondary characters distinct voices, Seth and Evan's were a bit too similar for my taste. Still, I have no trouble recommending this audiobook.
