This isn’t the first book I read from Debora Geary. I haven’t read everything she’s ever written under all her pen names, but the witch series has a fond place in my heart. This is contemporary fantasy at its best.
The main character – Lauren – is only the appetizer in this literary feast. The ensemble cast of fire, water, air, and earth witches elbows into the story to help their newest member come to grips with the changes happening in her life. This is a coming of age story in a certain sense, or a coming into power story – as are all the witch tales. I found myself – or at least parts of me – in the various characters and every book hit home for me.
If you like fantasy but aren’t exactly enamored of vampires and the were-beasts, maybe grab a sample. It might be the series you’re looking for.
Disclaimer: I know Deb online and count her as a friend and colleague. I’ve no vested interest in this title nor do I expect to get anything in return from this review. There’s a long story behind this that’s not mine to tell.
