A Witch in Winter by Ruth Warburton

Two of the things which enticed me to read this novel was the word ‘witch’ in the title and the other thing was the cover look. These elements made me stop and reach out for the book which spelt out ‘intriguing’, ‘must read’, and ‘paranormal’. I couldn’t resist.   The story starts with Anna arriving in a small town called Winter. She is to start school and make new friends.   Anna makes friends quickly and meets a boy called Seth, who she instantly likes. Seth, however, is already taken and Anna is fine by this. One day, Anna and her friends try a love spell as a joke. Anna thinks of Seth although she never meant to. She didn’t believe in all this hocus pocus anyway and she thought they were all just having fun…until the next day, she realised what she had done!

Anna tries every counter spell to release poor Seth but to no avail. Instead it brings trouble and she finds out that she is a witch!

She is also very powerful.

The story takes us on a roller coaster ride of events. Anna finds out things which she thought was not possible, yet she is to fight these demons to save the town of Winter and to save Seth and her father.   I loved this story so much that I couldn’t put it down. The writing was flawless; there was no confusion and no page was boring. An original tale in it’s own right.   If there was one thing to be picked upon, it’s that I wish there were more magical elements and surprises. Saying that, I look forward to the sequel.
