This is my first witch novel and it instantly carried me away! It doesn't go at all like you expect. It's a completely original take and that's the best possible story; a change and a surprise.
Most reviews have huge synopsises that spoil chunks of action! Please stick to what it is/how it is, never how it GOES!
A normal person with rueful family dynamics, is concerned with paycheques and keeping a car running. She doesn't believe in metaphysics and the author was brilliant to let this angle tell the story. We like 'Maggie', instantly relate to her, and want her to succeed.
There is a distinction between talented story-telling or writing. Madelyn Alt aces both. Her language is colloquial, descriptions not too flowery. Yet little moments come across with such accuracy you picture yourself there. Individual lines are laid out with such genius, scenes connect sharply. Some are so beautiful I re-read twice and thrice.
"The directness of his approach took me off guard. I'd never been very good with confrontation. I stared at him while all of the smart answers flew right out of my head and I was left with nothing more than the truth to fill the empty space".
Paranormal elements are light, easing newcomers into the realm very believably. Count on suspense, action, humour and gratefully; numerous sequels for our perusal! This is excellent.

Since reading this book I have picked up the entire series. I love every single book in this series, I anxiously await each of them to see what Maggie is up to! I have been reading them for years and even though I have an e-reader now I still order the paper ones so I can enjoy them on my shelf. I love the cover art and recommend this series to anyone who loves a fun witch mystery!
