Legacy of the Witch by Maggie Shayne

Legacy of the Witch is today's selection. First off it's a novella that introduces a new series that has to do with witches. Perfect for this time of the season, since Halloween is just around the corner. So here's what the novella is about:

We meet up with a 13 year old Amarrah who's grandmother is about to pass on to the next chapter of her life. A flower way of saying she's dying. All her life she has been told of stories of about these witches, but they are not just stories. Amarrah and these witches lives have been entwine with each other over many lifetimes.

Now Amarrah will become the keeper of the box. However, when she is about to leave Iraq for the states she ends up losing the box. Heartbroken that she has let her grandmother down. Life moves on and she sees the box again.  Life has given her a chance to reclaim the box.

In order to reclaim the box she meets Harrison Brockson who had manage to get the box. Now Harrison and Amarrah need to get the box from his ex-fiancee. Will they succeed? Will the future of the three witches come to a happy ending? Well, I guess you will be coming along with me on this journey, because I don't know the answer. I just know how it all started.

I'm excited to see if they all can have a happy ending. The first book in the Portal Series will come out in October. After reading this novella I'm sure that we will find an action pack adventure awaiting us. I hope you will come along with me on this journey. So, far I like the start and eager awaiting the next installment.

So, happy reading and I will talk to you later.


  1. I haven't read this one yet but have read Mark of the Witch (book 1) and really enjoyed it. Sounds like the novella is a bit of an adventure too. I'm really liking the cover on it. I'll have to pick it up soon :)

    1. I'm currently reading book 1, and right now Legacy of the Witch is still free on amazon, which is always a great buy. I can't wait to finish Mark of the Witch.
