It's the end of an era. This is the final release in the world of A Modern Witch. If you haven't met my witches yet, this is not the book you want to read :). Go find A Modern Witch and begin where it all started.

I figure the final book doesn't need much introduction. Take one last journey with your favorite witches as an oversized marble calls another member of Witch Central on a journey...

Forget everything you have read about witches before, because the witches in this series are probably not what you are used to, unless of course you already have read these books. I certainly have-all of them. And I have absolutely loved all of them. It was a shock to learn that this is the last of the witches of Witch Central we will ever read about, and I will miss them.

Most of these books revolve around the Sullivan and Walker families, their extended family, and friends. For the most part, they are all witches, with all different kinds of magic. Water witches, fire witches, earth witches, they are all represented, but with this story another sort of witch, finds her magic, and it isn’t good.

Nell and Daniel Walker are the parents of five children, which include a set of eleven year old, triplett girls. Ginia found her magic early, she’s an extraordinary healer. Shay has no magic, but she has her own great attributes. Up until now, Mia showed no signs of any magic, so when she suddenly exhibits signs of fire magic, all the fire witches are ready to start training her. What they don’t know, is that Mia is evolving into something that hasn’t been seen in over five hundred years, and it’s scary to say the least.

The best word to describe these books is heartwarming. Charming works too. They are always fast, well written reads, and feature a different witch in each book. The witch is usually facing some sort of problem, or just finding their particular magic. By this point, I feel like I know them all, and care about them all. Meeting their significant others, falling in love, having babies, this is how these witches live. There is so much love in these books, whether between a couple, parents, and their children, cousins, well you get the idea. It’s all held together by an old Irish witch named, Moira, the family matriarch. She lives in a small fishing village on the coast of Nova Scotia, where parts of these stories take place. It also takes place in California, and since the witches can port themselves to wherever they want to go, it totally works.

This book was shorter then the others,except the novellas. The author went through a personal crisis, and is unable to finish with the series. She took pains to try and wrap it all up in an epilogue, and I did enjoy the glimpses in the future that we get. I do regret not getting Aervyn’s grown up story-that’s the one I really wanted. Aervyn, also one of Nell and Daniel’s children, will grow up to be the most powerful witch that has ever lived(not a spoiler), and even at the age of four, surpassed all the adults. He, and Lizard, a female witch, and former delinquent, were my favorite characters of the series, and thankfully we did get Lizard’s grown up story, in a previous book. There is so much more to these stories, I could go on and on, like that there’s a magical realm game on the internet, run by witches, and mainly for witches, or that there’s always someone learning a life lesson, but there is just not enough room to tell it all. Suffice it to say, these are witches getting their happy ever after, and all they go through to get it-surrounded by love and magic, at every turn.

All of these books for the most part, top the Amazon charts when they are released, and if the reviews are any indication, are very beloved by all that read them. They certainly were to me. As I write this, eight of these books are listed in the top twenty fantasy reads on Amazon-including the top two spots. If it was me, I would start with A Modern Witch, the first book in the three series featuring these witches. I recommend them to ages 14 up.

I’m Lorna and I live in Maryland. Since retiring, I spend my time mostly reading and reviewing books. My favorite reads are Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy, and Young Adult. I read a lot of indie books in addition to traditionally published books. Favorite paranormal creature? Vampires, but I am really liking werewolves more everyday.

  1. This sound like a perfect series for me since i need HEA and heartwarming ^^ i so want… n,ow the fact the author can’t continue the series is making me sad even if i haven’t started it yet..; it’s for that reason i’m not fond of starting a series when it’s not already completed…
    i only regret it’s only available on amazon ( but i will keep it in mind)

    • She did wrap it all up and maybe someday we will get Arevyn’ story, she did mention on her website that that was a possibility. Sorry you can’t use Amazon πŸ™

    • When I bought the first one, I think it was only .99 cents but they are so successful, I guess the price goes up accordingly. When you read one, at the end is a note from the author asking you to review it on Amazon, and tell her about it-then she gifts you with the next one free. They are really worth the money I think..I am not sure a sample will give you the whole experience but I would try it πŸ™‚

  2. I love stories with witches, Lorna. And if this is a fresh spin on witches, I’m definitely on board. I’m happy you enjoyed this last installment even if you’re going to miss the characters. I love it when a series has characters I’m so invested in that I miss them once the series is done. I’ll add this series to my tbr. πŸ™‚

    Your review mentioning the series as charming and heartwarming has my attention about this series which I’ve never heard about.

    • Well if you like heartwarming and/or charming, then I can’t recommend these too much. It’s just the best in that kind of series in my opinion :)It does tell a kind of continuing story, and as I said, A Modern Witch is the beginning-there’s 3 different series, but all the same characters.
