A Witch in Winter by Ruth Warburton
To be completely honest I had high hopes going into this book, it seemed promising with witches and love and friendship and all that snazzy jazz. And it took me a while to get used to the fact that this book was clearly written for the british audience, as the language is not what I am used to.
All in all though the book wasn't bad, and was well written despite the fact that it isn't what I am used to. Nothing wrong with that right?
We meet Anna, a girl who just moved into Winter with her dad. She had trouble fitting in and starts to show interested in Seth Waters, the rumoured bad boy of the town with quite a history. The only problem with him is that he has a girlfriend.
After inviting a few friends over to the house they all try a love spell out of a book she finds which goes bad when the next day she finds that it worked and Seth is madly (And obsessively) in love with her!
She tries her best to undo the spell, gaining help from some local witches, but nothing seems to work as Seth grows closer and closer to her.
Eventually she has to tell him, hoping that it will snap him out of it, and for a few hours it seems to work as he comes to hate her violently. But then the next day he shows up and says that he loves her again.
As a witch with powers as strong as hers she runs into a group of people who will do anything to get her on their side, and she will do anything to try to remain as normal as possible. Too bad things aren't going her way!
To find out what happens you will have to read, and would say give the book a chance if you choose to buy it. The characters weren't bad, though it seems at parts the author goes out of her way to make sure that you really hate a certain person, which might be a bit of an overkill, but all in all it isn't bad.
I gave this book a 3 out of 5 star rating. Have a nice day! And I'll see you next time :)
