Synopsis: It’s a period of turmoil in Britain, with the country’s politicians electing to remove the UK from the European Union, despite ever-increasing evidence that the public no longer supports it. And the small town of Lychford is suffering.But what can three rural witches do to guard against the unknown? And why are unwary hikers being led over the magical borders by their smartphones’ mapping software? And is the European question *really* important enough to kill for?
My review: After a recommendation gave me another new favourite author with the Shadow Police books I thought I’d try a different set of the authors books. I managed to get this one as a free ARC on netgalley and it didn’t disappoint.
I managed to read this in one morning as it moves along at such a cracking pace. I was a little bit worried about starting with the third book in the series in that I’d not be as engaged with the characters but actually found that this works well as a stand alone story just as much as part of a series. All three witches have their own identities and are well formed and I found myself liking all of them. Looking back at the synopsis if the previous two titles each book focuses on one witch specifically which is probably why I felt reading this that there wasn’t enough of Lizzie. That’s fine – I just need to go back and read the other two books.
I enjoyed the links with the fairy world and would like to read more on that (hopefully going forward in book 4, no spoilers but it looks like i may get at least some part of that wish). It’s an enjoyable book and I’m looking forward to reading more.
