Jeff Madison and the Curse of Drakwood Forest (Book 2) by Bernice Fischer

Jeff runs into his friend, Rhed, and Phoebe out in the woods.  He was going home until monsters he'd seen before cut him off and tried to capture him.  He tells the others to run but they aren't moving fast enough to escape.  Then a warrior shows up to defend them...

Fischer Self Publishing and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now.  Pick up the first one if you haven't read it yet.  I hadn't and this book reads well as a stand alone.

When the warrior says that they need to return to Drakmere get the cure to keep Rhed from turning into a tree.  He was changed on their last visit.  Jeff is a dreamer and can make dreams reality.  He brings a door to where they are and jumps through.  Rhed follows.  When the warrior yells because he's angry they didn't listen, Phoebe jumps through too. Rhed is stiffening up, Phoebe has no idea what she's facing, and the witch is after Jeff.  There's danger all the way around.

With three witches, warriors, dragons, all kinds of monsters and the walking dead, there's plenty to worry about.  When Phoebe doesn't listen to Jeff and goes in a cave, the dormant witch there is planning to eat her to become young again.  So Phoebe has one witch after her and Jeff has another after him.

The story is action packed, has humorous moments, and keeps your attention to the end.  This book is over but the story hasn't ended.  The witch is still after Jeff.  This was a very good read.
