Review Tour: Adder and Willow by Sam Burns

My lovely readers,

I am thrilled to be part of the review tour participants of Sam Burn’s sixth book in the Rowan Harbor Cycle series, Adder and Willow.
With this book the second trilogy of three in total comes to an end, so prepare to read three more books in the whole series (for those who got lost :D).
If this picked your interest read further what’s the book about read further.

Happy reading. 🙂

Adder and Willow (The Rowan Harbor Cycle #6)Adder and Willow by Sam Burns
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*~~*ARC kindly provided by the author to me in exchange for an honest review *~~*


This series is without doubt only enjoyable if you know the other books in the series, otherwise you’re lost. Those who were there from the start might be as engrossed as I am and the more we get to know the more thrilling it gets.

In this particular book of the series the focus lies on Flatcher and the second trilogy of three in total comes to an conclusion. I really loved how in this book a domestic, daily thing is combined with the freaky events around Rowan Harbor.

The book isn’t always a light one but it’s also not only serious. I really loved how well known the characters are, the side characters are really warming your heart too but on the other hand, although the reader followed the journey now for a few books, it’s still a mystery what happening in Rowan Harbor, the character still have secrets they hide or are forced to face new challenges.

I’m really looking forward what author Sam Burns has in her sleeve for us and I hardly doubt it will be a smooth journey for our nice crew.

This book gets 5 out of 5 stars. 🙂

Fletcher Lane has a problem. His boyfriend’s parents are coming for a visit, and they want to meet up. He’s ready to commit, so what happens if his prospective in-laws don’t like him? And how is he supposed to keep Rowan Harbor’s unique nature a secret when he might be the worst liar ever born?

To make matters worse, when he finds and helps two strangers stuck on the road, it leads him to a new threat: the man who’s been terrorizing the town has set events into motion that endanger more than just Rowan Harbor. Can Fletcher and his friends stop him before there’s nothing but a smoking crater where the Oregon coastline used to be?

Author bio – Sam Burns

Copy of LogoSam wrote her first fantasy epic with her best friend when she was ten. Like almost any epic fiction written by a ten year old, it was awful. She likes to think she’s improved since then, if only because she has better handwriting now.

If she’s not writing, she’s almost certainly either reading or lost down a wikipedia rabbit hole while pretending to
research for a novel.
