    I am always looking for a good witch story I m not really sure why, just something about the fantasy and the magic and the world building gets me really excited and Hedge Witch did not disappoint I was captivated from the first page, and thoroughly enjoyed going on this crazy adventure with Cait, Fer, and all their friends.Cait Weerd is a very interesting character We don t really know much about her from the beginning, as we re kind of just thrown into the middle of her life She goes to I am always looking for a good witch story I m not really sure why, just something about the fantasy and the magic and the world building gets me really excited and Hedge Witch did not disappoint I was captivated from the first page, and thoroughly enjoyed going on this crazy adventure with Cait, Fer, and all their friends.Cait Weerd is a very interesting character We don t really know much about her from the beginning, as we re kind of just thrown into the middle of her life She goes to the library, and from there things just never stop moving I really enjoyed getting to know Cait as she s on the run with the old book her grandmother told her to hide or destroy, and discovering new things about her as Cait discovers them herself I definitely think she has quite a bitgrowing to do, and I m really excited about continuing her story in the next couple of books Especially after that ending What s she going to do next I do wish we had gotten to seeof Fer though I think her character had a lot of potential, but once she gets to our world she kind of just falls to the wayside and she s just written off as another member of Cait s group I want to know about her background, about her family, and why she s so special I m hoping that s covered in the next book, because I have so many questions about her One thing that was really interesting in the story telling was the jumping around in time We start in the present and then a couple of chapters later jump back to the past to get quite a bit of world building and then end up back in the present I thought it was a little off putting at first, but theI read theI began to appreciate it I m not sure it was entirely necessary, but I think it ended up working out Overall, I would totally recommend this book to anyone looking for a fantasy book about witches It s interesting and different and gripping and fast paced, and I definitely found myself wantingYou know that feeling when there s SO MUCH LEFT to resolve and only SO LITTLE BOOK left and you know it just can t be over yet because how could the characters be left in such a crazy predicament Yeah, I had that during this book, and I m desperate to continue this trilogy I d give it a 4 5

    My Thoughts The cover alone is pretty darn amazing I love the abstract piercings and the blue hair eyebrows I think the cover really does the story justice and hooks you in with the beautiful artwork on it I also love that the main character thrives with individuality I really enjoyed the story line, especially with the parallel world that is there to help our main character, Cait, as well as hinder her too Who doesn t want a basement of old and rare books Yes, please That is a pretty coo My Thoughts The cover alone is pretty darn amazing I love the abstract piercings and the blue hair eyebrows I think the cover really does the story justice and hooks you in with the beautiful artwork on it I also love that the main character thrives with individuality I really enjoyed the story line, especially with the parallel world that is there to help our main character, Cait, as well as hinder her too Who doesn t want a basement of old and rare books Yes, please That is a pretty cool scene and the action literally starts up in just the first few pages, grabbing our attention and not letting go I liked Cait but I wished she believed in herselfat the beginning of the story, as well as toward the middle I would have liked for a little bitconfidence from her I also loved the Old World tone to it As I read it, I felt like it was written as a classic, instead of this day and age I think it was the authentic British slang used throughout it I really felt like I was a part of the English culture, and loved having that feeling This story just had this cozy feel to it as I read it But that isn t to say it read slowly On the contrary, there were fast paced scenes in it with lots of action and other scenes that really captured my imagination The plot line flowed easily for me and was really easy to get caught up in the story threads I have always been a fan of witches and the lore that surrounds them I love that Hedge Witch built upon that and also bringing in its own magical essence too All in all, Hedge Witch is a great book with some very interesting characters that will make you laugh and groan all at the same time The Grandmother is pretty cool and I love the witches from the other world as well I can t wait to see how everything plays out in this series And way to go on such a cliffhanger ending How can you leave us like that How

    Designed with younger readers in mind, I enjoyed this very well written tale It has unexpected twists and turns to the plot and another unlikely heroine, finds immense courage in a world gone crazy.

    You can find this review and all of my others over at www.readbookrepeat.wordpress.com Cait Weerd is just going about her day like it s any other She s on her way to the Manchester Central Library to visit her Gran when a homeless man sees her and begins to say strange things Once inside the library, things just keep getting weirder when she follows her Gran down into the basement to put a book away and there s a creature from another world an undain It s come for a book, a specific book, You can find this review and all of my others over at www.readbookrepeat.wordpress.com Cait Weerd is just going about her day like it s any other She s on her way to the Manchester Central Library to visit her Gran when a homeless man sees her and begins to say strange things Once inside the library, things just keep getting weirder when she follows her Gran down into the basement to put a book away and there s a creature from another world an undain It s come for a book, a specific book, well, half of one anyway In another world, one called Angere, there is a coven of witches, the undain and the Witch King are planning something terrible and they need to reunite the two halves of the book so they can use it against the forces of evil A small group of people take on the task of venturing to the other world, our world, in order to carry this out and help the ones on that side who are working towards the same goal A coming war that spans worlds is about to start, and this small group of people from both of them are trying to stop it before it begins Can they succeed I m pretty sure I received a copy of this book from an email, I saw the cover, read the synopsis, saw that it was about witches and I was sold I m a sucker for a good witch story Though this one ended up a little different than what I was expecting I think I was under the impression that the story would follow mainly Cait, however a good chunk of the story jumps across and we are introduced to Angere and the Islagray not sure if that s spelled right coven I wasn t sure how I felt about this seemingly epic fantasy turn when I wasn t expecting it, but when we finally switched back over to the human world and started following Cait again, I found that I was actually missing the world of Angere At times the story s pacing lacked a bit, there was a lot happening, but at the same time, it felt like at times that the story wasn t really moving anywhere, even though it was, if that makes sense haha For what I would class as a relatively short book, it seemed to take a long time for me to get through it I put that down to pacing issues I liked the characters, I enjoyed Cait, Fer, Johnny and the Archaeon, I think the little bookwyrm was actually my most favourite character out of the whole book I even enjoyed Nox as the antagonist, his character was well written But I felt that at times, I just didn t really care where the story was going, I m not sure if it s because I wasn t in the right mindset for this book, or what was going on I must say though, once I read that final page and got to The End , I kinda want to know what happens next I felt the world creation was done well, and the writing had a nice flow to it I m intrigued about Angere and everything that has happened there, as well about the dragon riders and their story too Ran was a great character, though you didn t really get to know him in this book too much, mainly because he didn t talk a whole lot, just went where he had to to carry out his mission I think a big part of my problem was, I was expecting an urban fantasy, but this seemed to stretch over a little further than that, earlier in this review I used the term epic fantasy, it wasn t quite that either, it s somewhere in between I think I really enjoyed Johnny Electric s character especially because when we first meet him, he is a resident of Angere I ve just realised that I may be spelling that wrong hahaha, please forgive me Mr Kewin , but straight off the bat you can tell there s something different about him I mean, the boat he is riding down the An in is called Smoke on the waterI ll leave you to figure out what I mean I found his story fascinating and I did enjoy him as a character and I kinda want to see where his story started There s not muchthat I can think to say about this book It was enjoyable, a little slow at times, and I didn t feel a big connection to the characters as such, but I m planning on checking out the rest of the series at some point, so I m sure the character connection will come as I continue through their stories

    I was given an e Arc from BookSirens in exchange for an honest review.I thoroughly enjoy most books that involve magic in any form I find them fantastical and wonderful This missed the mark, 100%, in my opinion.The magic system was shoddy at best Very little is explained about what the characters are the way they are Why was her mother useless for so long Why did her magic show up now Why is the grandma lacking power What about the other world witches Why are the worlds divided Why are I was given an e Arc from BookSirens in exchange for an honest review.I thoroughly enjoy most books that involve magic in any form I find them fantastical and wonderful This missed the mark, 100%, in my opinion.The magic system was shoddy at best Very little is explained about what the characters are the way they are Why was her mother useless for so long Why did her magic show up now Why is the grandma lacking power What about the other world witches Why are the worlds divided Why are their dragons Why are the tattoos important None of this actually really gets answered, and these are just the first few concerns, I m sure I could spend muchtime coming up withquestions that were left unanswered.THENFirst strike the amount of time the book covers is a total of maybe a week Books that do not move forward in time drive me absolutely nuts, especially when there s a section titled four days earlier Second magic is tied to human energy in a political way Politics should not be in these books at least not so overtly It was extremely clear that Kewin was tying peoples energy levels, the feelings of being drained, to the antagonist of this story It was heart wrenching to me that their life force was being slowly drained for the good of the antagonist company Talk about an over used plot, that was far too close to home for me to really consider this a fantasy.Third this book does not actually resolve If I wanted to find out what actually happens, I have to read the next one s in the series Which I will not be This was a forced finish and I was left thoroughly unimpressed
