YAY! The next book in The Blackthorn Key series comes out in September. Call of the Wraith, the fourth book in the series, is set to release on September 25th. I have been a huge fan of this series since the first book came out. This is a must read series.


The cover is phenomenal and spooky. In pure Kevin Sands style, the cover includes a mysterious emblem. The snake is especially creepy. The inclusion of the ship becomes apparent once you read about the book.

Here’s the publisher’s description of the book:

Christopher Rowe is back and there are more puzzles, riddles, and secrets to uncover in this fourth novel of the award-winning Blackthorn Key series.

Christopher Rowe has no idea who he is. After being shipwrecked in Devonshire, he wakes up alone, his memories gone. Villagers tell him he was possessed by an unseen evil, and only became conscious after being visited by the local witch.

As Christopher tries to get his bearings, he realizes his current state may be far from coincidence. Dark events have been happening in this corner of Britain—village children are disappearing without a trace. There are whispers that the malevolent ghost of the White Lady has returned to steal the children away, one by one, and consume their souls.

Thankfully, friends Tom and Sally find Christopher and help him reconnect with his unique skills and talents, even as his memories elude him. But as motives and secrets are revealed, Christopher finds himself in a desperate race to reclaim his memories and discover the missing children before it’s too late. 

AHH!! That sounds fantastic. I’m so glad that Sally is back with the gang in this book (read more on that in my book three review). I’m a fan of this trio, and I think the series is better with all three working together.

If you haven’t caught up with the series, here’s my review of the third book, The Assassin’s Curse. Head here to learn about the first book in the series. I can’t say enough good things about this series, and I am super excited that the next book is coming out!
