The second half of Speaks the Nightbird continues on right where the first novel leaves off. The entire story just reaffirms why McCammon is one of my favorite novelists. He brought the late 1600s to life in a way that only he seems to be able to pull off. The characterizations that McCammon pulled off in this story show his true mastery of character and world building. Looking forward to the next Corbett novel (waiting on the pile for me).

What baffles me is into which genre do you stick McCammon. Normally classified in the horror section, this has elements of that yet I'm not sure how that truly fits his novels anymore. There is always a hint of horror, but throw in a bit of thriller, and of course a strong mystery element in this one and you come back with a unique blend of greatness. McCammon is back with a vengence. Hoping he continues to put out these awesome stories! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743471393, Mass Market Paperback)

New York Times bestselling author Robert McCammon continues his triumphant return with the conclusion of an epic tale of suspense that reinstates him as one of the great storytellers of our time....

The Carolinas, 1699: After hearing damning testimony from the townspeople of Fount Royal, magistrate Isaac Woodward sentences the accused witch, Rachel Howarth, to death by burning. Now, Woodward's young clerk, Matthew, begins his own investigation. Piecing together the truth, he sees he has no choice but to vanquish a force more evil than witchcraft in order to exonerate a virtuous woman and free Fount Royal from the menace claiming the lives of its citizens.
