Witches: Author's Revised Edition | [Kathryn Meyer Griffith]

Witches: Author's Revised Edition

Amanda Givens is careful how she uses her powers. She doesn't want the people of Canaan, Connecticut, to know they have a witch among them... even a good, white witch. For years, she's lived quietly in a remote cabin in the woods with Amadeus, her feline familiar. When she's wrongly blamed for a rash of ritualistic murders committed by a satanic cult, she knows she can't hide any longer. She's the one the cult's after. More than that, she’s the only one who can stop them and prove her innocence.

Publisher's Summary

There are witches in the world... some are good and some of them are downright evil.

Amanda Givens is careful how she uses her powers. She doesn't want the people of Canaan, Connecticut, to know they have a witch among them... even a good, white witch. For years, she's lived quietly in a remote cabin in the woods with Amadeus, her feline familiar.

When she's wrongly blamed for a rash of ritualistic murders committed by a satanic cult, she knows she can't hide any longer. She's the one the cult's after. More than that, she’s the only one who can stop them and prove her innocence. In doing this, she's drawn back in time by the ghost of the malevolent witch, Rachel Coxe, who was drowned for practicing black magic in the 17th century. Now, as Amanda tries to rehabilitate Rachel's reputation in an effort to save lives, as well as her own, she has to rely on a sister's love and magical knowledge, and a powerful sect of witches called the Guardians, to help her get home safely.

    "A great Witchy read."
    If you could sum up Witches in three words, what would they be?

    Engaging, Tense and Magical.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Witches?

    There isn't one that stands out because I found the whole book to be one enthralling.


    Have you listened to any of Erica L. Risberg’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this is my first by her. I really enjoyed her voice and how she did the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Witches was an awesome book. Amanda is a really strong character and I loved her. She is grief stricken when she looses her husband and that's how she is transported to another time to live out her days as a wicked witch. It's the only time she was vulnerable. She is an extremely strong white witch but she does something silly and loses her powers and can't get herself out of the time period she is sucked into, the time when witches were killed. She has to try to find a way back before she is killed for being a witch.
    Katherine Meyers Griffith has managed to create another amazing world. The books I've read by her so far are all character driven, and while that can make the a bit slow, I thoroughly enjoyed them. They are the type of stories that will stay with you long after you finish reading them.

    WITCHES

    Author: Kathryn Meyer Griffith

    Type of Book: Audiobook - Unabridged

    Narrator: Erica L. Risberg

    Length: 10 hours, 50 minutes

    Genre: Paranormal Fiction

    Release Date: May 31, 2013

    Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

    * I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Two witches living in the same town several centuries apart.

    It is the 1700s and Rachel Cox is the talk of the town. They say she is a witch and they whisper whenever she walks by. It is a terrifying time to be accused of witchcraft. Witch hunts and burning at the stake are common.

    Amanda is a modern day white witch. She is grieving the loss of her husband Jake and is just starting to try to figure out how to live without him.

    There has been talk locally about a satanic cult practicing in the area. When murders begin happening the residents of the small town are scared. And, as always, scared people act irrationally. They start looking for someone to blame and despite living there for ten years, they chose her as their target.

    Amanda must decide whether to permanently leave the house she loves and abandon the townspeople to the evil in their midst or whether to stay and fight to protect the town despite their hatred towards her.

    This is a story of good vs. evil, but is also a tale of prejudice and the fact that people tend to fear anything or anyone they do not understand.

    The author does a terrific job of incorporating the supernatural into the modern world. She also weaves history with present day.

    The narration of this book was not as good as I had hoped. Much of the delivery is in monotone and the different characters do not have distinct voices. The voice used for Rebecca's familiar (a mouse) was horrible and it was weirdly similar to the voice used for the character of Sebastian. However, there are stretches of time where the narration is very good. This is just a personal observation. I recommend listening to this book yourself and making up your own mind about the narration.

    I rate this book as 3.5 out of 5 stars.⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Love books about creatures of all sorts. Bored with explicit sexual verbiage - less is more.

    "Good story bad editing and voice"

    Met expectations and enjoyed time travel, just not the reader. Different character voices not well thought out and hard to follow.

    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the story of Witches although I find the reading by Erica Risberg to be so distracting that I found myself constantly having to retune into the book, I took several "breaks" from listening for this same reason. Erica Risberg has a habit of making the last word on one sentence the first world of the next, this can often change how whole scenes are read making it necessary to relisten to get it right. I found this very distracting but who knows, you might not even notice!!! Despite this the book is still interesting, I especially like the past scenes although the "thees and thous" get a bit tedious, not sure if this is the writing or the reading through. I have enjoyed this author's other audiobooks by other actors so I don't think this is all her writing style. Overall still worth a listen if you have some extra time.

    This was my first audiobook by this author and I can say I will be listening to her other audiobook . . I loved the characters in the book so much and really grew to understand them. You know a book was wonderful when you miss the characters after the story ends. Very good written book and also the narrator was good.
