Thank you for the great review. This book is like a fairy tale except that she is a witch instead of a princess. But she struggles between her heart and her responsibilities. Congratulations to the author and for the review.

If it were not for your review, I probably would bypass reading this book by the way it sounded when reading the sample. However, your review was really good and had me thinking about the possibility of trying it more so thank you.

While I enjoy Witches in fiction, this doesn't really sound like a storyline I'd enjoy, but congratulations to the author on such a positive review!

This is a wonderfuly written review! This is the type of book I can just get wrapped up in until the end.
Congrats the author on a positive review, and on being being BOTD!

This is definitely a book I'm going to read. It says it's a young fantasy book but at 51 this is a book that catches my attention and intrigues me. Plus I love books that continue on, the more books the better. I get attached to characters and story lines and I'm always sad when I know it's the last book
