The Witchery

We rated this book:


Logan, Iris, Jailah and Thalia are witches training at Mesmortes Coven Academy. Logan is the newest in the crew, and she needs to be prepared to face the Haunting Season. Wolves will enter the town from the swamp, and they intend to kill. But the Mesmortes witches want to do more, and they hatch a plan to rid the town of the menace once and for all. Their plan is complicated when two boys from a neighboring school get involved, and from then on all their lives are tangled with magic and darkness. Can the dangers of the past be obliterated from the future?

Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this book, which made me sad because I wanted to love it. The plot seemed underdeveloped, and none of the characters grew on me. There were six POVs in this book, which made the plot confusing – and the story suffered because of it. I could distinguish the characters easily enough, but I had trouble following all the inconsistent subplots. This was a book with interesting ideas, but the execution could have been better. However, even though I didn’t love this, I think that anyone who likes dark witchy stories will.
