Book Tour + Review + #Giveaway: Journey To New Salem by Mark Rosendorf @MarkRosendorf @SDSXXTours


Journey To New Salem
The Witches of Vegas Book 2
by Mark Rosendorf
Genre: YA Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

The Witches of Vegas are back, and their lives will never be the same again.

A year has passed since The Witches of Vegas saved the city from the evil Wiccan vampire, Valeria. Since then, the show has hit an all-time high. So has the romance between teen witch Isis Rivera and teenage magician, Zack Galloway.
Things couldn't be any better for them until Isis develops seizures that cause her power to spiral out of control. Fires and earthquakes are just the beginning of the chaos caused by the misfired witchcraft. Unable to find a cure, Isis' family journeys to New Salem, a fabled village of witches which may or may not even exist. Meanwhile, Zack ends up face to face with the only being who may have a cure...Valeria. But does he dare pay her price?

Journey To New Salem is the second book in The Witches of Vegas series and it picks up a year after the first book The Witches of Vegas left off with teen witch Isis Rivera and teenage magician, Zack Galloway. Isis, her parents, and Zack run a magic show in Vegas. They are known as The Witches of Vegas. People everywhere recognize them.

Isis has been keeping a secret from her parents. Isis has been getting ill lately she didn’t want to tell her parents as she didn’t want to worry them but when she starts having seizures she can no longer hide her illness as the seizures are very violent and are causing Isis to lose control of her powers which is proving to be catastrophic. Isis is a very powerful witch more so than anyone knew.

Isis’s parents can’t heal her themselves so therefore need the help of other witches. In their search for other witches, they discover a new town hidden away from everyone. Zack, Isis, and her parents set out on a quest to find this village of witches in a town known as New Salem.

Journey To New Salem is a fast-paced read and once I picked it up I lost all control and my surroundings as I was pulled deeper and deeper into its depth with twists that spiraled out of control and never let up from front to back. Each book just seems to get better and better as each page is turned. I felt as if I was right there with Isis pulling for her the whole way.

I could see it all playing out in my head as if I was standing beside each character and observing what they saw or experienced. I liked getting the story from both Isis and Zack’s points of view. I like seeing the story play out through their eyes. I can’t wait for the next installment to this wonderful series to see what is waiting for each of our characters, Zack and Isis.

As always I highly recommend Journey To New Salem to all fans of magic and witches. One-click your copy of this magical story, Journey To New Salem today!

The Witches of Vegas
The Witches of Vegas Book 1

Where can Witches and their vampire mentor practice their powers without being discovered or persecuted?

By using their magic, the Witches of Vegas become the number one act performing on the Las Vegas Strip—a great achievement for them, but not so much for the magicians—who can't possibly keep pace.
Isis Rivera is the adopted fifteen-year old daughter of The Witches of Vegas. Zack Galloway is the teenage nephew and assistant to the last magician left in the city. Although they should be rivals, when Valeria, a four-hundred-year-old witch with a long-seeded grudge against humanity arrives in Sin-City, both teens act to bring their families together to stop the evil hag in her tracks.
But can the combined witches' powers and the ingenuity of the magicians be enough to stop Valeria from taking over the city and possibly the world?
