Jen's review of "Bane" by Trish Milburn

Bane (Coven #2) by Trish Milburn
Publication date: May 31st, 2012
Publisher: Bell Bridge Books
Number of pages: 178
Format: Kindle
Description: To protect those she loves from herself, Jax will leave them all behind. She'll risk everything in a desperate search for answers.
Jax Pherson fled the darkest of covens and from her own father's evil. For a brief moment, her courage was rewarded. She found everything she'd ever wanted. A normal life. An amazing boyfriend. An envy-worthy best friend .
But her past put them all in danger, forcing a confrontation with the dark covens. In a life-and-death battle to save those she loved from the covens, Jax gained staggering power. Power so intense, so dangerous, she fears the darkness that now dwells inside her like a living thing.
If she can't control the power, she may yet become as evil as the witches she conquered.
With her friend Egan, Jax leaves all she's built and heads for the one place that might hold the answers she desperately needs to hold back the darkness-Salem, Massachusetts. Her research unearths a shocking discovery: the Bane, a secret group of witches dedicated to thwarting the covens.
Jax desperately needs their help in her fight against the covens, but finding the Bane is easier said than done and takes all her skills and courage. As Jax gets closer, her dark powers begin to rise and control her actions. If she succumbs to the darkness, Jax may have as much to fear from the Bane as the evil covens and the determined hunter on her trail.
This series is a fun one. It's an easy read, and this book is no exception.
In the first book, White Witch, we saw Jax find a life she wanted and fell in love. Things happened and she had to leave.
While she and her friend, Egan leave and find themselves in Salem, they start to dig into family histories and discover more than they ever bargained for.

Not only do they realize they have been lied to their entire lives, but the real truth about themselves and their powers is something they didn't anticipate upon.
Soon enough, Jax and Egan find themselves not alone, and discover that their past has caught up to them. Whether or not that's a good thing is yet to be determined.

I like both Jax and Egan. They are good friends. They both find themselves with similar pasts with complicated relationships with ones they love.
In this book, I like that we get down to more of the white witches, and whether or not Jax might be one.

Salem isn't what they think it is. The people... there are more to them than just ordinary folk, and Jax and Egan soon find themselves in the midst of something they never expected to be in.

The end of the book brings a whole new level of cliffhanger. It's something where you can't imagine what will happen from here on out, but want to know more.

With a great plot, new characters and a new town.. crazy and bizarre discoveries, this book is twice as good as the first book in this series. Things can only get better.

 Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for allowing me to review this title.
