Spoiler alert! Description and review may contain slight spoilers for book one in the series!
Anna still finds it hard to believe that Seth loves her and has vowed to suppress her powers, no matter what.

But magic – like love – is uncontrollable. It spills out with terrible consequences, and soon, Anna is being hunted.

A delightful, much anticipated, bewitching sequel to the British Witch in Winter Series. We find ourselves picking up the story 6 month after the first book ends where we still find Anna struggling in the midst of her magical gift and trying to suppress her ever-surfacing magical tendencies. And if that isn’t enough for a teenager to deal with, Anna still struggles with finding out if the love of her life, Seth, really does love her or is it still the silly remnants of the very first spell that she accidentally cast. 
In this book Anna has to learn who she really is and embrace herself for the witch that she is within. But what happens to an unpracticed, unconfident witch trying to stay off the radar? Random snowfalls and electrical shocks, just to name a few.  But hiding magic won’t protect Anna, her home, or the boy she loves from the Malleus (a vicious group willing to do anything to rid the country of those suspected of witchcraft). Once Anna goes on a quest to find out who she really is and where she came from, her life starts to unravel in a dangerous mysterious way. Anna finds that not even magic can help her get out of this one and saving her life becomes her new number one focus. Anna will need to learn the greatest lesson of all and quick. Knowing who you are and trusting yourself and those that truly love you. Only then Anna can hopefully get herself out of the worse predicament that she has found herself in thus far. But will she learn that lesson in time or will her fear drive Seth, her father, and all her friends away leaving Anna at death's door in the hands of the Malleus?

 Witch in Love is definitely action packed with a lot more twists and turns and drama with a force that propels you quickly through this second book of the series. Can’t wait to see how it all will end in her third installment.

  1. I already liked the first book, but even liked this one better, so I'm glad you enjoyed it, too! I'm very curious about the third installment and am crossing my fingers for a happy ending! :)
