The Last Windwitch

We rated this book:


In a world of magic, something is not right. There are elemental powers on the loose and the Queen of Crows, an evil sorceress, wishes to tap and take their power. But there is hope. There is a rebel group, the Circle of Thistles, that wishes to oppose her. Into this comes Brida, a girl with mysterious powers and an even more mysterious parentage. The Last Windwitch is a serious, dark, compelling tale of dark magic, elemental powers, and how tyrants fall. There are a lot of situations where humans turn into animals and are controlled via magic. These situations are scary and there are many graphic descriptions of monsters. The Last Windwitch is very much for teens and I would recommend it to high school libraries or middle school libraries. This is a book I would recommend to teens of age eleven and up that like dark, scary, suspenseful novels. It is very fast-paced and does not spend much time on pure character development. The Last Windwitch is set in a seemingly creative world, yet beneath that, there are common fantasy tropes and characters with stereotypical personalities. It is hard to put down, so I would recommend starting it on a weekend morning and reading all day. If you want a serious, scary, tense fantasy novel, The Last Windwitch is for you.
