In a nutshell: spell-binding drama of teenage witch faced with life-or-death choices | Readers who loved authors Katherine and Elizabeth Corr’s supernatural romance The Witch's Kiss will fall upon the sequel. Teenage witch Merry is still struggling with her strict gran’s witchcraft tutorials, and still doesn’t feel an accepted member of the coven. She’s missing Jack too, the boy she saw die at the end of the previous adventure, and is worried about her brother Leo, who is hiding the deep grief he is feeling for his friend, Dan, also now dead. When a handsome young stranger Ronan moves in to their neighbourhood, both Merry and Leo are intrigued, but should they – can they – trust a wizard? The drama is high, the mix of the occult world with ordinary 21st century teenage life deliciously done, and Merry remains a funny, lively, captivating heroine. Fans will once again sink under the Corr sisters’ spell!

If you like this, you’ll also enjoy Ruth Warburton’s The Winter Trilogy and L. A. Weatherly’s Angel Trilogy.

Synopsis

The Witch's Tears (Sequel to the Witch's Kiss) by Katharine Corr, Elizabeth Corr

Can true love's kiss break your heart...? The spellbinding sequel to THE WITCH'S KISS by authors and sisters, Katharine and Elizabeth Corr. It's not easy being a teenage witch. Just ask Merry. She's drowning in textbooks and rules set by the coven, drowning in heartbreak after the loss of Jack. But Merry is not the only one whose fairy tale is over. Big brother Leo is falling apart and everything Merry does seems to push him further to the brink. And everything that happens to Leo makes her ache for revenge. So, when strangers offering friendship show them a different path, they'd be mad not to take it...Some rules were made to be broken, right? The darkly magical sequel to THE WITCH'S KISS burns wickedly bright.
