Review

It kind of surprised me how much I enjoyed this book! Don't get me wrong, I liked A Witch in Winter - I liked it a lot actually - but we had a couple of issues. Now it would seem, after a little break away, I've missed Seth and Anna. Tom and Em. Even the grumpy git that is Bran! This instalment is jam packed and it doesn't wait to throw you into the deep end.

So, the story for the second Winter book picks up six months after A Witch in Winter concludes and I'm happy to report that Seth and Anna are together! It would also appear that Anna has discovered how to make a decision without the world crumbling down around her! The whole book is focused around the one question that wasn't answered before, what happened to Anna's mum? You find out more about that side of her family, about her powers and why Tom's kept so tight lipped over the past eighteen years. So much more happens in this book - you won't be disappointed!

Seth and Anna! Together - yes. Happy - debatable. It was never going to be smooth sailing, and in all honesty? I don't think I blame Anna for being dubious. I mean, wouldn't you always wander if Seth loved you if the only reason you had gotten together in the first place was because of a spell? Hand on heart I firmly believe Seth's feelings are real but put in that situation there would always be a voice in the back on my head asking, are you sure? 

And to make things a whole lot worse there's always Bran. Who, as it turns out, is so much more than just your average bigot! If there's any one character I think you should watch out for it's Bran Waters. In this book you find out just how deep his hatred for witches goes. I found it hard to read at times, not just because he was a horrible man but also because of how hurt Seth became with his Grandfather's actions. 

Which brings me to Seth. Oh, Seth! The poor sod. In my heart I think I want these two to work it out but at the same time I can't help but think that maybe he's better off without Anna. They both seem to drag each other into dangerous situations and then they tare each other apart trying to keep the other one safe! 

There were some real OH MY GOD moments in this book - which I'm not going to give away. What I will say though is that there was one point where I came very close to not finishing this book. Not because it wasn't good, because it was! But because I didn't want it to end the way I thought it was going to, and in my little deluded head if I didn't finish the book everyone could live happily ever after. 

Needless to say I finished it, and my hearts still in tiny little pieces on the floor. My brain on the other hand was more like this...




I can't wait to read the final book in The Winter Trilogy as there are still so many questions unanswered. A Witch in Love was my favourite, and if the series continues the way it's going I expect A Witch Alone will be heartbreakingly gorgeous!
