Publisher's Summary

Deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest is a small village called Dark Root, a town steeped in magic, mystery, and secrets. But for Maggie Maddock, Dark Root is also a prison - a place where she is forced to work in her mother's Magick Shoppe while the rest of the world moves forward without her. When a mysterious stranger offers to take Maggie away from it all, she leaves without looking back. 

Seven years later, Maggie is called home by her beloved older sister. There she is confronted with a renewed sibling rivalry, a mother suffering under a mysterious illness, and a town that's lost its literal magic. Now Maggie must decide if she will use her newfound abilities to aid those she loves or run from her responsibilities once again.

loved this!

I really enjoyed the narration of this audiobook. The introduction of the characters helped me get into the story and the background. I am really looking forward to the next book in the series on audiobook, but I couldn't wait, so I bought the actual book to hold me over in the meantime 😘

Enjoyable Witchy Story!

This book was a great look at some at first reluctant characters towards witchcraft and included some interesting dynamics between small town life and whether or not magic is real type of story. The narrator was also great for the different voices and feel of the story.

Couldn’t get past first quarter

A whining unsympathetic main character repeatedly bemoaning her dysfunctional family, her cheating man, her pathetic hometown etc.. Hints of a dreadful family secret & some minor magic. This comprised almost the first 3 of 11+ hours of narration. Couldn’t force myself to go further.

Pleasant surprise

I wasn’t sure I would like this during the first few chapters. Im so glad i rode it out. I absolutely fell in love with the daughters and really enjoyed the twists and turns. Im so glad you started with that one line! We get to reap the benefits. Cant wait to read the remaining books in the series
