Review: Bait N' Witch by Abigail Owen
Bait N' Witch - Abigail Owen

Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

Every story in the Brimstone Inc. series has been wholly addictive and Bait N' Witch is no exception. The third magical outing features Rowan, a witch of incredible power who has been taught not to trust her own kind. Rowan also possesses a strong vulnerability, one that a powerful werewolf used to force her to do something horrible. Now Rowan has to hide from the judgment of the Covens Syndicate. And what better place to hide than right under the nose of the hunter sent to bring her in?

Greyson Masters may be the Syndicate’s best hunter, but he’s also a widowed father of preteen triplets who have a power no one can quite figure out. The triplets need a new nanny and Brimstone, Inc. has sent over Rowan, a witch of supposedly little power. Rowan is the first person who has been able to bring peace to Greyson’s household, but there’s something about her that makes him restless. The pull between them is strong, but what will happen when Rowan’s secrets are revealed?

As individuals, Rowan and Greyson are wonderful characters. Rowan is a powerful witch who has survived more than most could deal with and she’s retained her strength and kindness through it all. I loved watching her bond with Greyson’s daughters from the first. Preteens can be scary enough but add in magic? Yikes. Rowan is more than up to the challenge, though. She slides easily into the Masters household and into the hearts of the family itself. Greyson is the best at his job but he’s slightly in over his head in his household. He’s a loving father who is doing his best and it’s easy to adore him. As a couple, he and Rowan click from the start. I loved watching how they seamlessly became a couple, almost without realizing it. But Rowan can’t hide who she is and how powerful her magic is for forever, not from Greyson and not from the werewolves that are hunting her.

Bait N' Witch is just plain fun to read. It has romance, magic, action, and even a small mystery featuring the triplets’ abilities. I was hooked from the beginning and didn’t want to put the book down. I love how author Abigail Owen weaves together all different magical and mythical beings to create a fascinating world. If you don’t mind spoilers for the first book in the series, The Demigod Complex, then you can read Rowan and Greyson’s story as a standalone. I enjoyed everything about Bait N' Witch and I cannot wait to see what happens next in the Brimstone Inc. series.

Reading progress update: DNF at 35%.
Akata Witch - Nnedi Okorafor

At this point I´m wondering if I´m going to be the person who will DNF every single book for Booklikes-opoly. 

 

This one was of to a promising start, but then it ventured very fast into the "whatever" territory. I couldn´t care less about what was happening in the book and what was happening to the characters. And quite frankly, I´m bored stiff at this point.

 

I actually had the same experience with the other Okorafor I have read. I liked the beginning of Binti, but towards the end I became completely indifferent.

 

 

Which makes me think that Nnedi Okorafor isn´t an author for me. I´m not particularly fond of her writing style and her stories simply don´t grab me like they should. It´s a shame, because I like the aspect of African culture in her novels, but I don´t want to force myself through books I´m clearly not enjoying.

 

DNF at 35% (79 out of 221 pages)

Money earned: $ 1.00

BAIT N' WITCH BY ABIGAIL OWEN
Bait N' Witch - Abigail Owen

Loved this addition to the Brimstone Inc series! It may just be favorite of the series so far. Bait N' Witch pulled me out of a bad reading slump and I'm so grateful for it. I was up till 3am finishing this one, I read it all in one sitting. The characters were interesting and fun and the romance was perfectly paced with the length of the book. Though these are more novellas than full length Owen always manages to make them feel like they are full length in the best way. It's complete and enriches the whole world created each step of the way. I also love that we get peeks at the previous characters we've come to love.

 

Rowan was fabulous! I loved the nanny plot line and her relationship with the triplets. It was just as enjoyable to me as the blossoming romance between Rowan and Grey. I can't wait to see what happens next!

 

I received an arc of this book from Entangled: Amara via Netgalley and this is my honest review.

The Worst Witch Saves the Day - Jill Murphy,Jill Murphy
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

This is such a fantastic series. I absolutely love it!

Another brilliant chronicle of chaos, mishaps, and things going wrong, but Mildred Hubble working it all out in the end. I was instantly pulled in by another term at Miss Cackle's Academy and ended up reading this much more quickly than I intended to. This is a perfect story to get lost in.

Great storytelling with a wonderful balance of detail and suspense.

The illustrations were also amazing and accompanied the narration well.

A splendid read that I thoroughly enjoyed. I am so in love with this series and cannot wait to continue it.

The Vengeance of the Witch-Finder, Lewis and Rose Rita #5 by John Bellairs and Brad Strickland
The Vengeance of the Witch-Finder - John Bellairs,Brad Strickland

The second of two manuscripts finished by Brad Strickland after John Bellairs' death. This was a more typical novel for Bellairs, following shy Lewis and his new friend Bertie as they cause and avert supernatural misfortune at the Barnavelt ancestral estate in England.

 

My opinion of this has improved since childhood, I remember being disappointed there wasn't more done with an actual "FOR REAL" gothic country house. But, you guys, there's a haunted hedge maze.

 

This text had more of that authentic Bellairs flavor, following Lewis' adoration of Sherlock Holmes, the English Civil War, and little details about mid-century tourism. I could have used a party-line joke when telephones came into it, but to each their own.

 

Lewis & Rose Rita

 

Next: 'The Doom of the Haunted Opera'
