Rating: 5 stars
The Return of the Witch by Paula Brackston is an enchanting yet highly suspenseful read. It is no wonder her novels are so widely talked about and loved. The plotline is addictive. Adventure awaits readers deep inside these brilliantly well-written pages. The story revolves around a family and love. But the danger is just beginning…and how it ends will have drastic changes over many lives.
Inside The Return of the Witch, readers are introduced to some familiar characters from Paula Brackston’s first book. I love books that portray both magic and love. They swallow you up whole and transport you into different worlds. This novel does just that. The Return of the Witch is also a fictional tale about how one young woman grows up into the woman she is. After learning so much, Tegan, a witch has blossomed. The innocent and evil go head-to-head battling for the final round. Will Tegan and her mother like figure, Elizabeth, make it out of danger or will this be the end of them? Paula Brackston has beautifully captured a journey that will leave readers senselessly in love with her writing as well as waiting, for the next grand adventure. The journey readers take here will sweep them off their feet and swirl them fast into action, intrigue, and a fantasy worth reading. Overall, I loved reading this paranormal title and I highly recommend it to readers everywhere.
