Reviewer Critiques NYT Bestselling Author’s Magical Sequel

Reviewed by Jennifer Shaw

The White Glove War (July 2012) is everything I hoped it would be. It picks up where The Magnolia League ended, quickly jumping back into the chaos of the Magnolias. It’s a super-fun series with the most outrageous southern characters out there. If that’s not enough to intrigue you then the hoodoo spells surely will.

As much as I loved the crazy Magnolia girls (as well as the elder Magnolias) in the first book, I enjoyed the insanity of The White Glove War even more. A large portion of the first book was spent setting up the plot, introducing characters, and getting Alex settled into her new home in Savannah. Now that she knows a great deal about potions, spells, and the league itself, the action and mystery that set this group of ladies apart from the rest of Savannah truly comes to life.

The hoodoo spells are such a large part of the novel. I was hoping that Crouch would step it up in the hoodoo department and she totally did. A creepy new character is introduced and he’s more than I could have asked for. This guy is freaky! The Gray Man is, in my opinion, the demonic version of the walking dead. There’s one thing about this evil guy that makes him extremely memorable…his eyes. If you want to know more, you have to read the book. It’s extremely creepy!

The White Glove War is a fast-paced, exciting addition to the Magnolia League series. Crouch definitely stepped up the action in this installment, making for a gripping and enthralling hoodoo tale that is second to none. I highly recommend this series to readers that enjoy the paranormal or are looking for a fast read with memorable characters.
