    "A Gripping Tale"

    Often I am disappointed with the next book in a series, however, Ms Brackston surpassed the intensity of her first book. I am looking forward to hearing her next in this tale.
    Thank you for carrying me away to this magical world.

    "Everything I had hoped for"

    I was so excited to see the sequel to "The Witch's Daughter" and this did not disappoint. The story of Elizabeth, Teagan and Gideon continues!

    Story
    "Uninspired and very tortured"

    So far I have enjoyed these witch books, but this one was unfortunately not very good. The plot was extremely tortured and the story was not compelling at all. All conflict was heavily manufactured. The time travel element forced the story to revisit parts of The Witch's Daughter, but did so in a very forced and false way that was as unbelievable as it was unimpressive. As sequels go, this is a bad one.

    Also, the reader did a bad job this time. I have enjoyed her other narrations, but in this book it was often very difficult to tell who was narrating (Elizabeth or Tegan) because she did not do distinctive voices. The point of view often shifts but it isn't until later that you realize that the point-of-view character has changed. I wish she had done more distinctive voices.

    "Another treasure from this author"

    I'm still in love with all the books by this author so far and was pleasantly surprised to find out there was a sequel to The Witch's Daughter. I was not disappointed. I do think part of my infatuation comes from the fantastic narrator, but that just makes these books an all around great experience. Beautiful writing combined with beautiful narration.
