I'm a huge Heidi Kling fan. She's the master of showing readers characters in such a way you can't help but fall in love with them. And in THE GLEANING, trust me, you will! There's something magical between Lily and Logan. Something as simple as a touch or a glance, is shown in such a way, you feel you're right there. Now that is a sign of a true storyteller.

I'm also a fan of e-serials. I love how the reader is able to choose the outcome of the story. Think Dickens meets the modern world.

I was really excited to be able to read the galley of THE GLEANING which is the second serial in THE WITCHES BREW series. Kling once again grabs us with her lush writing and amazing characters. You can't help but feel the tension between not only the protagonist Lily but others in the story.

Kling has to be the queen of writing YA romance. She's able to convey feelings in such a way that is real and not forced. I loved how the writing literally sparks whenever Lily gets around Logan. There's also suspense and tension between Lily's coven. Someone seems to want Lily to fail during the gleaning.

There's also hints at others who might want to harm Lily. And there is one huge reveal that had me yell out, "No way!" I won't spoil it but just will say it totally took me off guard!

The only complaint I have is the serial ended too soon! So not fair!

I highly recommend this e-serial to fans of Kling and also those who love stories with paranormal elements as much as I do. The e-serial premise is a winner! If you haven't tried this new publisher yet? I recommend you do!

Can't wait to read more!
Good Points
1. Fun interactive premise where the reader chooses the outcome
2. Sizzling chemistry
3. Kling is the master of showing readers characters in such a way you can't help but fall in love with them.
