Sanja meets Lelek, who is a witch, at the marketplace where she was selling what looks like turnips. A customer accuses Lelek of cheating by selling a fake amulet to him. Bumping into Sanja, Lelek kidnaps Sanja to force her to teach her how to fight with a sword. A friendship forms between Lelek and Sanja. The two decide to go on a journey to find Lelek’s witch teacher so she can collect the other half of her spirit. While on their journey, they come across some problems that can be dangerous. Will Lelek be able to find her teacher? Will Sanja be willing to help Lelek? Witchlight is a fantasy graphic novel about love and friendship. The illustrations have a darker mood which is very fitting for the magical setting. But, I could not figure out what witch power Lelek has. It looks like maybe Lelek can blow flames. Some parts of the story was a little confusing–especially the parts of the past. Fans of magic and witches will enjoy this graphic novel.
