I started the book on the way to work. After about 30 minutes, I found a place to pull over and put a stop to the whole thing. I don't know if it was the reader or the whole experience, but I just had to stop it. I listen to a wide variety of books, and I enjoy romance, fantasy, mystery, thriller, science-fiction, a lot of everything. I did not like this at all. Maybe the reader didn't work for me.
I really love these books the sense of community and love that flows through this story of witchcraft is so heart warming. I would love to be part of witch central even if I was on the fringe.
I have requested the audible acquire the rest of these books. Debora Geary has a way of making you feel like family. I really hope I can read the rest here.
I was able to get the backstory. Now I can start the series again with more knowlege of the main characters.
I had tears at the life changes the characters had to go through, and smiles at the pink glitter.
I would really suggest that this book be read first. It is the prequel for the rest of the series.
Entertaining, magical, romantic. A good mix for a light hearted read/listen.
Enough strength in the characters to provide the necessary angst between the romantic leads and emotional depth.
The plot surrounding computer coding and gaming was not too convoluted or technical. The gaming and magic together was surprisingly entertaining and a good combination.
Looking forward to the rest of the series.
Martha Harmon Pardee was a good choice for narrator although I took a bit of time to warm to her.
It was really fun, after reading the first three books, to get a little more of the back story. I really like the dynamics of the relationships. Calling myself a witch, though a bit more literal than in these tales, it's really good to have the craft portrayed in such a positive light.
My favorite character in this book was Nell, of course. It's always nice to have a model of a character who is self aware and able to know when she's wrong - in the end, anyway.
I have not, but I love her performances in all of this series, so far.
The book made me laugh and cry, many times.
When will audible get the rest of the series on board???
Yes, I would listen to every book in this series again to pick up all the things I missed the first time around.
There really isn't anything like this series so it's hard to compare... maybe something written by Molly Harper (they are light hearted and fun)
Nell she is a major figure in all the books.
When Nell told Daniel about her mom's precog vision.
I read this book (0.5 in the series) after completing the 3 books one through three in the series... I hope Audible gets the rest of the books in this series
Having first listened to "A Modern Witch" and "A Hidden Witch", it was fun to have the back story of Nell and Daniel explained.
Yes, "A Modern Witch" and "A Hidden Witch". Martha Harmon Pardee is very consistent in her narration. I've enjoyed her narration in all three.
I read the books in the order they were published. In other words, even though this book is the precursor to books 1 - 3, I read this last and I'm glad I did. There are little gems hidden in this book that you will not appreciate unless you've read the other books first. Don't get me wrong, this book stands on it's own. However, the listening/reading experience is greater if you have read books 1-3 first.
I love Martha Harmon Pardee's narration. I love the way she can put a smile in her voice that carries through to the listener. She is the perfect narrator for this series.
The entire series is a lighthearted tale that is a great listen for the beginning of summer. This time of year I desire stories that are clever, yet amusing. This series is a great start to summer and can be recommended for young adults as well as an older "girl" like me who sometimes wants to get away from great epic stories. (I save those for dark dreary winter days!)
Lightning and bushes - I won't say more than that!
Pink glitter - seriously fun stuff!
Yes, Virginia, there really are witches!
I have been reading some fairly serious stories lately. It was lovely to find this series (which I completed in one-week). It is a lighthearted, fun-filled, family driven story that is full of love, friendship and magic. Additionally, it was a cleverly written, enjoyable series. I'm sorry to say I've read everything that has been written to date about these wonderful witches. I truly hope more stories are forth-coming.
Totally freaking awesome.
Romeo and Juliet! It is a love story for the ages only it has a happy ending.
This is a bit of a spoiler, but Nell's reveal.
My wife went to the ER and they could not decide what tests to run for a long time. Listening to this book was the best thing in the world to help me keep it together. I have listened to several of the these books and I love them.
I spent years driving a company truck doing electrical work in an area the size of Rhode Island. I would listen to old favorite books. It was great because it was almost like having a brand new book. I always found new nuances, ways to see a great book in a new way. I loved listening to old friends and getting to know them better. For someone who likes a lot of different Genres to say that I have found a new favorite author is a major statement. If you do not believe me then read my reviews about Debora Geary on Amazon dot com. I have all of this author's audible books and am agitating for the rest. These are well worth the credits it takes to buy them, and frankly I WANT THEM NOW!
This book was a light and easy listen. There wasn't anything to deep just a cute no brainer.
