Though in her early twenties, she took the power back, living an unnaturally long life until she’d given it up for good.

Turning the Stone (Blood Rites, #2) Reviews
S.L. Perrine has done it again. She created a new lineage of characters that you cheer for, love, despise...She weaves in parts of the past so smoothly and seamlessly that you feel like you are part of Seraphina's family. This story took me by surprise in such a good way. The first book was amazing and I thought I had an idea of where some of the story might lead. Oh was I wrong and am glad for that. S.L. Perrine please write quickly as I can't wait to see what happens next.Gaia, please give me the patience to wait for book #3.
This is the second book in the Blood Rites trilogy featuring Gwen and Silas. I loved this book. I was not able to put it down, the story drew me in and never let me go. I loved seeing what happened after Seraphina passed the torch to her grand daughter and how the Blood Rites trilogy is connected the Crawford Witch Chronicles. I can not wait to see what is next for the Crawford witchs.
My Five Star Review of Turning the Stone (The Blood Rites Trilogy Book 2)Written by S.L.PerrineA story of power. A story of family. A story of magic. The Blood Rites trilogy continues with this second installment that takes place a few generations after the tale of Seraphina from the first story. This story can stand alone from the first story and even though I highly recommend Blood Rites because of how wonderfully written of a tale it was. I like that more than just the Crawford coven was focused on being the Silver Shadows and the Black Widow coven. Gwendolen Crawford comes to the age where she prepares to take on the power of High Priestess and through such a vocation she can then heal the rift between the Sigmis family and her very own. In steps Silas Sigmis Jr. whose very father ordered him to take the power of Gwendolen Crawford is trying to obtain by her very blood rite. Sigmis falls for the raven haired Crawford girl and here is where this story shines. Against all odds, against family tradition and against friends these two characters only have each other. Gwendolen being a potent, fiery personality brightens each page and Silas is the gloomy, brooding young man who breaks the cast made by his father and attempts to make a life with Gwendolen, protecting her and the power she carries in her genes and family lineage. More than love is at play. A power stronger than anything in the world of magic, witchcraft is fought for, sought after and here under so many threats the Crawford line must endure because this power can only transfer to the destined Crawford woman. Gwen has a life of pain, tragedy and sacrifice more so than any woman I have ever read about and Sigmis can’t work miracles and even thought he loves Gwen even he is under tremendous strain. I can’t give away spoilers. This story is tragic and filled with sorrow while the edge of this sword there is beauty, warmth and the human spirit in great abundance. Read this story and enjoy what I have.
