“From the bestselling author of Mexican Gothic comes a magical journey of revenge and redemption.

Yalxi, the deposed Supreme Mistress of the Guild of Sorcerers, is on a desperate mission. Her lover and confidant seized her throne and stole the precious diamond heart, the jewel that is the engine of her power. Yalxi sets out to regain her magic and find a weapon capable of destroying the usurper. But this will mean turning to unlikely allies and opening herself up to unpleasant memories that have been suppressed for many years. For Yalxi is no great hero, but a cunning sorceress who once forged her path in blood – and must reckon with the consequences.

Set in a fantastical land where jewels and blood provide symbiotic magical powers to their wearers, The Return of the Sorceress evokes the energy of classic sword and sorcery, while building a thoroughly fresh and exciting adventure ripe for our era.” (Goodreads)

This cover is amazing like all of this author’s covers are! I just love every single one.

My only complaint about this book is that it was too short! And yet, this author packs so much feeling about revenge and redemption into such a short book. I didn’t realize it was a novella until after I started but I’m glad that I didn’t know otherwise it would have swayed my decision on picking this one up. I would have missed on reading this thrilling story about Yalxi.

I hope that one day she does write more in this world as I would definitely be interested in knowing more.

As always, I love her writing and even the shortest of books can make me feel a lot in a short amount of time.

Overall, I enjoyed it! I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a shorter fantasy or have read her other works.
