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!
