Hi all! Today on my blog I have a review for A Stain on the Soul (Caitlyn Book 2) by Elizabeth Davies. Remember to scroll to the end for a giveaway!
Resigned to another lifetime of being a witch’s familiar, Caitlyn has found a degree of peace in her role as the Duke of Normandy’s protector and spy.
But that peace is shattered when she returns to her native land only to come face-to-face with her past, and fall in love with a man who she desperately hopes will become her future.
Elizabeth Davies is a paranormal author, whose books have a romantic flavour with more than a hint of suspense. And death. There’s usually death…

This is the second book I have read in this series and boy it did not disappoint! You’ll be able to find my review of Book 1 here.
Once more we are back with Caitlyn who is a witches familiar. The story of how she got here is told in Book 1. I love the fact that these books are based on some form of truth. This is being told in the time before Duke William became William the Conqueror. I love this little spin on it. This book is actually set 25 years into the future and Caitlyn hasn’t changed one bit!
Caitlyn really is the general dogs body, there to do whatever her mistress commands and of course William. I just wanna go and give her a hug, she didn’t ask for this and certainly doesn’t want any part of whatever people have cooked up for scheming and plotting. But do it she must unfortunately.
This instalment threw in a curve ball… Caitlyn falls in love, she knows she can’t stay with him because of who, or more to the point what she is. I knew she would have to give him up but I was really rooting for her to get her happy ending.
This time round I pretty much liked all the characters and the part they played in Caitlyn’s life. At the end I was hoping she would get her freedom, but it just wasn’t meant to be. I guess I’ll have to wait for the next book to find out what happens next!
I’m giving this book a 4/5 rating. It really did flow well once again although the book was written over a shorter time scale than the last. It was still fast paced and again I say this would be perfect for young adults as it may have a bit of truth to the history it still has witchcraft and the supernatural to keep them interested. I can’t wait for the next one!!
