Book Review: "A Hidden Witch" by Debora Geary

This is the second book in the Modern Witch series, and it is one that I am really enjoying. Like the first it is a fun, entertaining read without the ridiculous amounts of ‘adult only’ scenes that so many urban fantasy novels contain. This book takes the ‘modern’ facet a whole step further, blending technology and magic closely together.

It takes place shortly after A Modern Witch, but the characters are slightly different. It focuses more on characters that were a sideline in the first novel, though the originals, Lauren, Nat, Jessie, Nell, Aervyn and Ginia are all still in it with big roles to play.

There is a lot going on in this novel; you need to pay a little more attention to which character is which but it is by no means mind-boggling. It still features Deborah’s easy writing style and wit, though I found myself on the verge of tears numerous times. A Hidden Witch tugs on the heartstrings and makes you hang on to every word.

In Debora I have definitely discovered a fabulous author and I can’t wait to read more of her books. There is only one more in the Modern Witch series, but I believe there are some offshoots as well — I’ll have to look into it!

Book Description:

“Elorie Shaw, steeped in the traditions of the Nova Scotia witching community, but not a witch. The fetching spell must have goofed this time… or did it?

Travel to Fisher’s Cove, Nova Scotia, where Moira is matriarch and the old ways are nurtured and passed to the next generation. Where a crotchety old witch makes small children cry and builds walls around the silent pain in his heart. And where Elorie – sea-glass artist, inn owner, and Moira’s granddaughter – makes her home.
The old magics are strong here. Which is all fine and good until the fetching spell pulls Elorie into Witches’ Chat. Because she’s not a witch. Or at least not any kind of witch the old ways recognize…”

Find this book on Amazon.

If you don’t have a kindle, Debora explains HERE why she only has her books on Amazon and how you can read them anyway.
